Ceboa® - Marketing Guidelines


The purpose of this Marketing Guidelines is to summarize the ground rules for the content use of a business listing, profile, coupon, newsletter, and other generated marketing content. In order to use the marketing content you have agreed to the Ceboa Terms of Use.

The primary purpose of the Ceboa Business Listing is to provide a better way for you to advertise your business (or your non-profit charitable organization) with a more feature rich listing with additional marketing benefits beyond the listing itself, such as a profile page. The listing service is also designed to give you additional search engine optimization value which will, presumably, make your business more easy to find on the web.

It is expected that your business listing will be a positive reflection of your organization and will address only your organization, products, and services. Your listing may not be used to directly name or infer your competition in any fashion. Statements may, however, address any awards or ratings that may reflect your business standing, such as "voted best restaurant in 2009". Listings may also include common advertising style testimonial statements and other common advertising techniques.

Similarly, coupons, newsletters, and other marketing collateral will be a positive reflection of your organization and will address only your organization.
