    Exclamation IWL Watch Sales Forum Policy Change

    We are all aware that our sales forum is a bit lackluster with respect to traffic, and we'd like to improve that. So effective immediately, we are allowing IWL members to to place a link in their signature promoting any items they have for sale. We want to keep it simple, so these are the only rules:

    • The link must be to a advertised item on the IWL Sales Forum, not any other sites
    • One link per person. If you are selling multiple items, you may highlight that fact in your signature
    • Please keep the links and text unobtrusive so they are not a distraction on the forum (this is at the discretion of the staff)

    This policy is subject to change in the future, but we feel like we have a solid member base who will not abuse it for spammy purposes.

    Of course we understand that in order to get your watch in front of the most buyers, you are likely listing it in multiple places. But we would greatly appreciate a listing here as well. The more activity in the forum, the more reason people will have a reason to visit each day. Our hope is that eventually we can grow that forum to the point where we begin to bring in new members who are searching for watches online. Increasing our sales traffic to the point where we could be added to WatchRecon would also be huge for us.

    So please go though your boxes and dresser drawers and dig out those unworn pieces and post them up for sale!

    Any questions or comments about this or the Sales Forum in general are welcome.

    Also, to create a 'friendly' link, use this format:

    [URL=insert link here]Check Out My Sale![/URL]

    Put the link to the sale inside the first bracket, and then put the text you want displayed in between the two URL tags. So using I-B's sale as an example, I can create this:

    IB is selling a Worldmaster - Click Here!

    That is a very creative idea to drive more traffic.

    Thanks

    It's a nice feature to add. Thank you for letting us do that. Am I doing it right?
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.
