Before you post your quotes and comments there are some important considerations to make.
Whatever you post on Quotator is in the public domain, available to our extensive journalist community and if published could be shared across any number of websites and resources.
Of course getting a variety of media coverage is the aim of Quotator as this leads to great brand exposure, increased company profile, attracting more web hits as your quotes become SEO gold and heightening the potential to increase business volumes. But remember by making your comments public you are placing your head above the parapet. This means you have to be sure your comments are well thought out and reflect your company and personal values. Once it goes out into the public domain it’s very difficult to retract.
That’s not to say you have to be conservative.
If you have a point or observation to make, then have the courage of your convictions and make it. Simply be aware of any potential repercussions on you or your business.
Don’t be scared of posting quotes that court controversy, cause debate or raise tricky questions but bear in mind any potential legal implications. Avoid personal attacks or derogatory comments on individual business practices. Legal action is rare but in Part two we will outline a few general legal limitations which are worth digesting.
