Following up on the Forbes hooplah on “attack” blogs, Boing Boing points to this 10-point list of simple things to do to avoid negative blog coverage:

1. Create quality products and services.
2. Sell what you advertise.
3. Make certain your products and services do what they claim to do.
4. Fully test and study your products and services before offering them for sale.
5. Disclose all risks posed to purchasers of your products and services.
6. Tell the truth.
7. Fulfill your warranty promises.
8. Don’t cut corners.
9. Comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
10. Don’t try to buy influence.

It sounds simple, but for corporate bureaucracies, it doesn’t hurt to spell out the obvious.

I've published HoT along with about 300+ friends since 2002. We're all Americans who are snarky and love our country. I'm a libertarian that registered Republican because I like to win elections. That's pretty much it.

  1. OK…..It is simple, and anyone who doesn’t know that shouldn’t be trying to be in the biz of selling stuff.

  2. Agreed… any idiot can take business classes and get straight A’s…. (i can use myself as a prime example)

    it’s pretty much all common sense…
