Don't worry about your posts not appearing immediately, Kayser. Mine don't, either. Some threads are monitored by the board admins more closely than others - they probably get more spam on these threads. It serves to keep this forum spam-free (Which is greatly appreciated, Admins.)

Re: your question - I think a sign - or several signs - in the store as you suggest, would be great. Sure, there'll always be someone who finds it pushy but I don't think most will. Like everything in marketing, test, test, test. Put one or two signs up and after a while start asking customers if they find them acceptable. They'll tell you. If you get too many saying they find them unacceptable (for whatever reason) take them down, but my guess is they won't say that. Some may even thank you for the reminder.

You must monitor your FB page, Yelp account, etc. to see if the signs are working. Test the wording, check the results. Change the number of signs or the location of the signs, check the results. Change the color, check the results. You will eventually find the best format.

In fact, I always recommend to my clients that they start a Promotions Journal, in which they write down details of everything they do to promote their business - their advertising, their promotional campaigns, their publicity, etc. and the details of each change. Plus record the results. That Promotions Journal, after some time, can become an excellent reference and a tremendously valuable record of your business growth.

Youre welcome. I did double check both of your profiles and both are active with no issues. I think in this thread there have been posts premoderated more than usual. I believe keywords may be triggering the moderation, such as prom dresses, clothing, etc. No worries though, as I see the legitimate posts from you guys I do my best to get them approved and published immediately. Just the balance of spam management I guess. thanks for understanding - that's appreciated as well.

And I certainly appreciate having a venue to discuss business without having to duck all the spam with which other boards are bombarded. Small Business Ideas Forum is one of the best.

Thank you, Logan, for making it so.

Thank you
