Paying for watching a sales presentation???Oct 31, 2013

Is this for real?
This is a sales/marketing presentation by Easyling to sell their subscription-based products.
Shouldn't THEY be paying for people who attend?
This is beyond absurd.

I've done a couple of website translations and have toyed with the idea of approaching companies myself offering to translate their websites for a fair price, but have been put off by the potential for non-payment. The idea behind Easyling sounds interesting, but after looking at their YouTube video and going on their website I can't see how there is $16 worth of advice in that webinar.

I noticed this too! Unfortunately, I don't think it's breaking any rules. It would still be interesting to get a comment from ProZ staff seeing as they price the webinars themselves (as far as I know)...

Rules?Nov 1, 2013

Rules?
How about general business ethics? Common sense?
I understand that ProZ may have arrangements with companies for advertising (just look at the right side of the screen), and I could even imagine ProZ letting advertisers conduct FREE webinars introducing their products, but to CHARGE the VIEWERS for that, is beyond cheeky.
Charge the advertiser, for Pete's sake! They are getting access to ProZ's users, and that, in itself, is something that normally comes with a pricetag (for the advertiser).

I don't know who authorized it and on what base, but I say it is plain wrong.
