Never let the door open because those Spammers and Scammers will destroy your online business in 1 month. Let me explain you my very own experience.
3 years ago, I decide to start an online business. My goal was to be better than ebay and cragslist. The door was open to anyone. Some legit person comes in to promote their products, services and events.
After that, I noticed that my user base grow so quickly. I was happy because finally my online business had real traction.
The main problem with those users, they were not legit. They promote shady stuff online. I didn’t know how to handle this situation. Anytime I delete a couple, a couple more comebacks.
When I finally try to stop this madness, the website get hack.
So what can you lean from my experience.
- Set tight rule and apply them as fast as possible.
- Market your tight rule. (explain why it is important and why the great user will benefit from that)
Never try to please to everyone. Stay focus to those tight rules.
Now it’s official I close blackysky.com to reopen a new service.
It is a new online advertising revolution. I’m working hard to make it happen.
