I called Demo Support on Monday and spoke to a gentleman. It was the 2nd time I had called, once in the beginning during the original announcement and then once on Monday and the same results. It si not uncommon at all for Demo Support to give mixed signals. many demonstrators and other groups argue back and forth about it and its known that it depends on who you speak to you.
You can call again if you'd like. Or if you contain other competitors' links on your site then I could understand. But if you're in compliance, then there's no reason why you can't have people link back to your blog :)
What may help your business is if you belong to other groups like SUDSOL or LNS, that's if you are Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Or I'm sure other groups allow you to "advertise or Buy/Sell/Trade" about once a month...so you can do that to help publicize your business or continue to put your blog's address in your signature on all posts in all forums.
I am also in the process of designing a SCS animated banner ad.
Hi there :D
When I first called Stampin' Up! about my business (blog setups) they said it was fine and no violation. Michelle Laycock does basically all my designing. Except I just helped a fellow demonstrator out and did NOT charge her for the graphics I designed for her. But as to not cause any conflicts I just removed the post.
But in addition, I haven't put my button on any of my clients' blogs and really never do unless they specifically ask me to and then most of the time they do I act as though I forgot.
So, I will all them again on Tuesday about my blog setup business and see what they say.
However, when she called I don't think they told her that she couldn't put her button on people's blogs, they just told her she could NOT design and sell with the new MDS. She does not of course.
But on her behalf I will ask again when I call SU tomorrow.
