Wrote a business-related Instructable - is it spam? Answered

Hi guys,
I'm interning for a solar panel reseller and I just wrote an Instructable that introduces you to the basic fundamentals of home solar: What you need to buy, what you need to consider, and what you need to watch out for. There's inline links to our store pages, and "Additional Reading" links to our learning pages. That said, I'm confident that it's a well-written, informative introduction. Furthermore, I'm confident that besides the links, you can read through the whole thing without feeling like it's biased or hitting you over the head about going to our website.
I'd hate to make a bad impression here - It'd be nice to keep doing articles like this. Before I publish this, can anyone let me know if it's too offensive? And if you have any suggestions about it, that'd be nice too! Thanks!

As long as you follow the guidelines of the site and stick with the general DIY spirit of Instructables you should be fine. Just make sure you are actually relating a step by step process of how to do something. Linking back to another site is OK too. I've only had a chance for a quick look at your Instructable but it looks fine so far.
