Your Opinion, Business and Tact...

As most of you know, I own a bath and body company, Product Body. I feel that The Soap Bar is a place for people to come for tutorials, soap photos, innovative soap happenings, information and just soap stuff that must get. Soooo, it's hard to bring this up because I am not one to push myself on others. However, this is an offering more than a pushing.

I ask you: Would you want me to pass along a sale here on this blog that we put out in the Product Body newsletter? It occurred to us that we have a double sale going on for our customers and others aren't getting those benefits.

You can see that online version of the newsletter sale here.

The problem is that I don't want to "plug" my stuff and turn people off. I thought maybe I could do a monthly mention of a big sale. The economy sucks and we could use the business and if you like our products, you could use the discount. I see it as a win win situation, unless it would just piss you off and make you go away forever.

So I ask. Please leave a comment in the comment section about your feelings about this. Or email me at jo(at)productbody.com. I can take what you dish out.... Just don't be horribly mean to me. Thanks. :)

Well, seeing as I subscribe to anything and everything Jo/ProductBody-related, I certainly wouldn't mind a double-dose posting of sales! :-)

I don't think it's a bad idea to mention (briefly, in case there are those who might be turned off). I knew about it since I subscribe to both blogs.

My 2 cents: it's your blog, so no matter its original intent, you can plug whatever you want on here. You certainly don't need our permission. I get your PB info in lots of places: here, your other blog, your newsletter, FB and Twitter (if you mention it there too...speaking of which, I don't think you're on my list for some reason)...

Anyway, it's your party, hon, so shout out what you want to!

i'm with teresaR: it's your blog, and you can talk about whatever the heck you want to. after all, it's called the soap bar, not soaps made by other people only...i wish the hell somebody would tell me what to put on my own blog...oops, i digress...sorry

I say it's ok. It's just pointing people in the direction of Product Body if they are interested.

I would certainly not be turned off by it. I say go for it!

I agree with Amber. I always love hearing about a good sale!

YES Definitely!!

So often I buy soaps from people you write about... no reason you can't plug your own good work, too!
