This is basically a sales pitch to potential mybb clients.

Am not sure explaining this dynamic explicitly to the intended audience of said articles is the smartest thing to do...:X3:

Is this partner content on how to sponsor an article?

Also, how is BT related to MYBB. I recall Kevin previously being a MYBB journalist who’s now at BT. Is it a subsidiary of MyBB?

My automatic reaction to a sponsored articl e is to trust that company or product less

I assume anything within the article will be marketing bullsh1t.

It's advertising trying to be sneaky and tip-toeing in via the back door.

Yeah sorry, but for an educated customer base, a sponsored article is generally not a positive in terms of customer trust.

Which is probably why we see those Huawei articles (although it is much less than a month ago) not being marked as partner/content.

I'm going to call 100% bullsh1t on that survey as well.
They have 'articles' as the most trusted...not 'sponsored articles'
I'm going to assume the choice in the survey was also 'articles'

I now trust MyBB less.Articles.jpg

This is not necessarily wrong.

This is relative measurement. 67% of "absolutely fokkol" is still 0 ;)

How Sponsored Articles make customers trust your company

Sponsored Articles are the most trusted form of online advertising in South Africa, and are an excellent way to reach both businesses and consumers.
What makes me trust a company is the following, out of experience:
1-The product/Service itself produced...A good product works good out of the box, no fiddling afterwards...A good product also lasts long(Not a waist of resources).
2-How does the company treats me if I have a complaint or question..Does it help me quickly with no fuzz, or come back to me in no time if not possible at the time-?
3-Does the company has a call centre that pushes me from pillar to post, and I just cannot for the life of me locate a knowledgeable individual, and on top of this they bill easily and quickly, the only part that actually function.
4-Are the product/service just a medium to extract money-?
5-Do they know what they dealing with.
6-Word of mouth or excessive advertising....
