|| Boycott Watch is
the leading authority on boycotts, including consumer, political and union
boycotts. Boycott Watch President Fred Taub consults with businesses about
boycott prevention and response after the fact. Boycott Watch also reports
about boycotts, sometimes breaking myths, but always posting both sides of the
story so consumers can make up their own mind about what the facts are.
As consultants: Boycott Watch works with business to
prevent boycotts, which is important to businesses because a boycott can cost a
company hundreds, thousands or even millions of dollars, sometimes before a
company may realize what a boycott exists or is even problematic for them. Our
primary consulting goal is to advise businesses about boycott prevention, but
if a boycott happens, we can then advise a company how, using our extensive and
specialized experience, to best eliminate the boycott and its affects.
Reporting about boycotts: Boycott Watch reports
about boycotts to give consumers both sides of the story so they can decide for
themselves what the truth is. In these cases, we verify if the underlying claim
in factual, and in many cases we debunk such boycotts. For example, if a
boycott is called because 1+1=2, we will verify the math. If, however, a
boycott is called based upon 1+1=3, we will debunk such actions. Naturally that
is a simplification, but it does illustrate the essence of out reports.
Consumer advocacy: In some cases Boycott Watch will
post comments when we see stupid actions that do nothing but upset consumers.
Advertising on our site: Let's face it. We have to
pay the bills somehow, and we do it with ads. We hope you will click on the ads
and purchase goods and services from our sponsors.
Our ads are from an agency, and although we do select the products that are
advertised on this site, we do not control when the ads pop up. We try to make
sure, to the best of our ability, that we do not have any direct goods and
services ads on a page that discusses a boycott of those goods or services, but
sometimes we may make a mistake.
From time to time,
you may see an ad offering secondary and goods and services from a company
discussed on a particular page. This is totally beyond our control, as we do
not monitor every advertiser's offerings.
