Ads & Solicitations are being removed in accordance with CoM Guidelines (these can be found by clicking the 'Guidelines' tab at the bottom of the page).
Members posting ads or solicitations will have their threads / comments deleted and may be blocked from posting here for repeated violation of the CoM guidelines.
Comment signatures promoting your business / website / company/ blog / facebook pages/ or containing contct information, ie: phone numbers, e-mail address, etc. will also result in the deletion of your comment / thread, so please do not use your business signatures here.
If a post violates our policy against solicitations, it will be deleted. This is stated in our Terms and Conditions, which you agreed to when you signed up. If you're unable to respect this policy we will have to block your membership. The policy is restated below this message for your reference.
While we're glad that you're excited about your business or product and that you're eager to help and share, if we permitted solicitations in our communities or through personal messages, Circle of Moms would be over-run with them. We've designated the Mom Store and the Work-from-Home Business Opportunities Community as the go-to places to learn about members' businesses and products, and we welcome you to post in either or both of those places.
Policy on Solicitations
The following are considered solicitations and are not allowed on Circle of Moms:

-Business links / signatures
If you wish to post an author's or researcher's query, you must seek written permission from both the Circle of Moms community management team and the Admin of the community you are targeting. Start by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may post descriptions of your business, ie: what you do, which company you work for / own, a list of products - you may NOT post a link to your site or to the company site.
You may not spam our members. Members wishing to find out more information will contact you via private message.
Members looking for business opportunities should read the pinned thread "Market Yourself" to find out information on specific businesses and will then be able to contact any member whose opportunities interest them via private message.
CoM charges a fee for advertising. It is 50.00 (USD) for 1 year of advertising in the Mom Store. If you wish to advertise, please use this link, pay the fee, and take out an ad.

Violators of these guidelines will receive one warning. Further violations will result in termination of your account.
Thank you for your cooperation,
