Group Rules

Our FREE Facebook group is for online business owners to connect, share insights and advice, get answers to questions, and learn the ins and outs of online business.

To keep this community respectful, safe, positive, and productive, we have a few simple rules to follow. At the discretion of our admin, rule breakers can and will be removed from the group without warning. We definitely don’t want that to happen (because you’re pretty awesome and we want you here with us)!

So, please take a quick minute to get familiar with our rules.

  1. Be Respectful

    No negative, disrespectful, or insensitive comments to anyone in this group. Words and phrases that imply a person should feel shame are not acceptable. In some cases we may provide an opportunity to edit comments, but any comments that go against our community guidelines can be deleted without warning.
  2. No Links On The Main Wall

    Group members are not allowed to share links on the main wall for any reason. We have plenty of opportunities to share what you’re working on through our promo threads.

    You can ALWAYS share helpful tips, share your wins, share inspirational quotes, ask for help, offer help to others, give advice to fellow business owners, tell us a funny story, share positive experiences, network with fellow bloggers, share a lesson you learned, ask for feedback, etc.

    We ENCOURAGE you to practice live videos in our group. However, you may NOT start a live video within 30 minutes of a scheduled admin live.

    When asking for advice, please put the link in the comments, not on the main post.
  3. No Direct Affiliate Links

    Group members are not allowed to share direct affiliate links in this group for any reason. Do not offer to PM your affiliate link or referral codes to other members.

    Do not use hidden affiliate links. These tactics are disrespectful and will get you removed from the group without warning.
  4. No Self Promotion

    This group is not for self-promotion. Do not bait members, then ask them to “PM you for more info”. Do not send PMs to people without permission. This behavior takes away from the quality of this community and it will not be tolerated here.

    If someone asks for help or advice, you ARE allowed to offer help, including sharing links. However, you may not offer courses or services that offer help building communities. Our group owner is focused on helping business owners build communities of raving fans, and therefore, we have plenty of tools and resources to cover this particular topic.
  5. Be Respectful

    No negative, disrespectful, or insensitive comments to anyone in this group. Words and phrases that imply a person should feel shame are not acceptable. In some cases we may provide an opportunity to edit comments, but any comments that go against our community guidelines can be deleted without warning.

If your post was deleted, it went against our group rules. Repeat rule breakers may be removed from the group without warning. We understand that different groups have different rules, if your post is deleted, please re-read the group rules to refresh them in your memory.
