No Selling of Any Kind
This is not a place to sell any of your stuff. /r/forsale is where you should post those things. This is also incorporated into our zero-tolerance abuse policy. Selling results in an immediate, permanent ban, no exceptions.
This is not the place to promote your business. Any and every post promoting a business, in any capacity, will be removed and will result in an instant ban.
This is not a place to recruit sales people. There are other subs for that. A good starting point would be this guide.
Spamming, or blatant self-promotion, will result in an instant ban. Keep the conversations on /r/sales appropriate. Spamming gets zero-tolerance, so be forewarned.
