Clickbooth: Bad Marketing

I keep up to date on what’s going on with a variety of different services, and that includes having a ReviewMe account. One of the great things about all the different pay per post type systems is that they now require you to be open and honest about the source of the content, but Clickbooth Publisher Network doesn’t want to play by those rules, and in their ReviewMe posting, they ask that people not mention that it is a sponsored review.

Please do not put sponsored listing in the title or anywhere in the content of the review, thanks!

In the frequently asked questions on ReviewMe, they specifically state:

1. You must disclose that the post is a paid post in some way. Here are some ideas: “Sponsor Post” “Sponsored Post”, “The following is a paid review,” “Advertisement.”

Looks like Clickbooth doesn’t want to play by the rules, and deserves a thumbs down from me today. Don’t promote Clickbooth and their bad marketing practices. They should have their advertisement removed from ReviewMe and ReviewMe should also be held accountable for letting advertisement text like that through their system.

    No, I don’t know that, but they should monitor reviews to make sure they comply with their terms of service, especially since such things reflect badly on them.

    I think that they should implement some sore of “flag this” function, rather than us holding them responsible for reviewing each and every campaign before it goes live.

    I agree however Izea have a lot of this kind of thing at reviewme and payperpost. Theyve targeted the bottom end of the market. Doesnt excuse this kind of thing though.
