LookSmart Small Business Listings
40% Off and 5 URL Promo is Elusive

 2:04 pm on Mar 15, 2003 (gmt 0)

I just got LookSmart's monthly spam..., I mean informational email. It promotes 40% off Small Business Listings (trial program) and up to 5 URLs (used to be you could only submit 1 URL per domain).

When you click the ad, you get a splash page that reinforces the promo. However, when you try to sign up, it's back to the ol' 1 URL with no discounts! There's supposed to be a place to enter a coupon code. Fantastic.

Is this a glitch or LookSmart's bait and switch approach to the marketplace?

They do have a place to enter the coupon # (it's when they ask for your credit card info)

I would assume this offer is legit, but I haven't used it myself.

Well, either way I'm going the PositionTech/Inktomi route. That seems like a better solution for the number of pages we have and the need for the 48hr update.

I was mostly surprised that LookSmart wouldn't let me enter more than 1 URL before asking me to pay. Then, I could be stuck with 1 URL. Oh well!
