Default Anyone else who made video reviews get this message...

... from *another hookah community*?

hey i know you're a member on hookahpro... wasn't sure if you only do reviews on hookahpro or not, but we're looking for some help on *another hookah community* doing video reviews... if you're available to help us out in addition to hookahpro, please do. what's unique about *another hookah community* is not only the community, but also many vendors and companies sponsor *another hookah community* and provide our active reviewers with free product on occasion to review free of charge... well, anyways, i really enjoy your videos... have a good weekend man... and keep smokin'

Seems to be a canned message that at least a few people got.

uh oh i know someone here who is going to blow a gasket....
as a vendor I will not ask for reviews to trade for free product, that takes away from any objectiveness you will have. You are basically being bought. Some may feel obliged to give a great review since you were given something for free. If you pay for something you have every right to give your true opinion.
I have asked, when I was getting started for you guys to post reviews here at HP but haven't done so since after my first month of business or so. Also I gave out free coal samples to introduce my product to the market. That's it, but then, I started getting requests for free products in trade for a review which I am not doing. It's just not fair, plus I can't give out free stuff, it actually costs me $$$.
Many of you do reviews because hookah is your hobby and you are passionate about it. When you do it unsolicited it's more genuine. Thanks to you guys who have done reviews for me and my products.
John

Well, the case seems to be that members are getting spammed with a canned message from another community, which I guess is a concern.

You guys/gals ever see Willy Wonka? Reminds me of that guy Slugworth you know the owner from the other chocolate factory, trying to lure the Willy Wonka kids to help him promote his second rate chocolate factory with sneaky tactics. haha

necco, it is cool .. I am not upset with you posting that msg, it is good to show the sneaky, sly tactics some other communities use to try to gain attention and Members ..

We stepped outside the box about a year and half ago and built Hookah Pro .. a bunch of us! all working together as a team/family. We don't need gimmicky marketing or behind the curtain persuasions to gain attention. We stand strong and tall as a big family here because .. well let's face it .. Hookah Pro friggen' ROCKS! We got some great MODs and Members ..

Feel free to PM me how this makes you feel ..

Cheers! .. Sambooka

I think the obvious solution to this is to give free 36" KMs to anyone who posts videos.

and to comment on what John said .. I completely agree!

That is why I posted this:

... in retrospect to the current video promotion sponsored by Sahara Smoke and Hookah Hookah

Please read the thread if you haven't yet .. Cheers!

With the whole Sahara Smoke/ HookahHookah promotion, they wanted honest reviews. I dont think they could have gotten that anywhere else. All the reviews I have watched were all over the place when it came to the rating. That right there is why HP rocks, you can't buy us like that.

And don't worry about YouTubes user ratings. Who cares when it's all about getting people here and enjoying it at HookahPro! Eventually, just as I did, they will want to see what it's about and end up joining.

They're desperate for members and jealous of our awesomeness. Stick with the one and only.

Hah, nah i did not get that message.

Maybe its b/c some communities already get the hint that this is the only place that I will rep

Lmao it makes me laugh that some of them are getting very nervous about us starting to branch out with video reviews. Good stuff They know we have potential

Pssh I started getting spamming comments on one of my vids from other communities. They play dirty, I swear. Desperate much? Awfully rude in my damn opinion, honestly.
