Through the years of being a moderator. I've found out a few good tips on being a great MM. Some of you experts may already know this from being a MM but this may be new to a few others.
Search Before You Post The number one rule is search before you post. MM hate to be stolen from. A great way to search is search through the search bar at the top of each dealsplus.com page. Let's say you are about to post a Logitech MK320 Keyboard Combo from Staples. The best way to search if another user has posted this before is by searching "site:staples.com MK320" on the deals tab. You could use the same concept to other deals and products.
Posting a COMPLETE Deal Posting a complete deal is very important. Users on dealsplus.com hate to see incomplete deals, like no $ in front of the price, or no image on your deals. I've noticed quite a few users post incomplete titles like "PIXMA MP495 Wireless" instead of "Canon Pixma MP495 Wireless Printer" on dealsplus.com. This in my opinion makes a world of difference. When people search "Canon Printer" the first title would not show up because it doesn't have the two most important words on the title.
HTML Tags HTML tags makes your deal user friendly. If your deal say has a coupon code. It might be wise for the MM to bold the coupon code to stand out and make it clear for the user. (Let's say you want to bold dealsplus.com, the HTML tag for bolding is <b>dealsplus.com</b>). Another common HTML tag that we use is links for a sale page. For example if American Eagle has a huge sale on clearance items then it might be a good idea to link "Outerwear" "Sweaters" etc. Lets say you want to link the outerwear ( <a href="YOUR LINK GOES HERE">Outerwear</a> ) Its much cleaner and much easier for users.
After Posting This in my opinion is a the most important step of being a successful money maker (making more $$$). This is a concept of Google search but it also works here on dealsplus.com, the higher your search result is the more clicks you'll get. Let's say I posted a deal on "Canon Powershot A3300". After I posted the camera deal, I search "Canon camera" or "digital camera" on the search bar on top dealsplus.com to make sure I'm at least the top 3 in search bar so when users search those key words on dealsplus.com your deal will be featured as the top 3 camera. Its pretty easy to do this, all you have to do is to check the deals above you to make sure if its working or not. If you've tested out the deal and its not working then simply flag it expired or leave a comment like "this deal has expired" or "this coupon has expired". This concept works well with coupon pages too. If you've posted an awesome coupon and there are a few coupons ahead of you, we highly recommend checking the coupons above of you to see if it has expired, if it has expired, just leave a comment "expired" on the coupon page and the moderator on duty will take care of it. (Please don't take advantage of this as we do verify and check the expired coupons).
