How to Get the Most Out of The Community
By following these guidelines, we build a safe and supportive community together. By being a part of this community you agree to the rules listed below.
NO SELF PROMOTION
No self-promotion is allowed, except on the designated posts, or where otherwise stated.
Definition of self-promotion:
- selling anything – that means products, services, courses, events and programs
- posting a link to your OWN website
- posting a link to your OWN Facebook Group
- posting affiliate links
- posting your own content in the group and not in a specific (and relevant) thread.
- posting photos with your social handles, URLs or business name on them AND posting “free” offers or “freebies”
- posting full blog post content, or a post that is a length of a blog post, even without a link.
We may break our own rules and promote something if we feel it is useful to the group. We reserve that right as it is our group and community.
NO OUTSIDE PROMOTION
No outside promotion is allowed, except on the designated posts, or where otherwise stated.
Definition of outside promotion:
- sharing a video from someone else
- posting a link to someone else
NO POSTING OF VIDEOS
No creating videos, posting videos of yourself or streaming LIVE into the Group.
DON’T SEND PRIVATE MESSAGES
Do not send private messages to Sara unless you have prior permission in the form of a comment/message or email.
DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE
If you choose to create any relationship with fellow members, do so at your own discretion. Sara is not responsible for any unfavourable circumstances that may occur as a result of relationships formed within our communities.
We don’t own Facebook. Should they change their terms or start charging for Facebook groups, we may move our group elsewhere. Also, if group guidelines are consistently not met, the Facebook group may also be closed.
Remember, this community is about learning how to start to create your own artwork but NOT to promote or sell it to other community members. The purpose of our group is to connect with fellow members, share ideas, wins, ask questions and make connections.
We’re not here to monitor Facebook, we’re here to support you and help you create your artwork. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and cooperation.
ON SUBGROUPS: FORMING AND SHARING
In addition to our Official Facebook Community, there may be a number of approved Subgroups that are listed in our main group. Please do not create a new subgroup without express written permission from Sara. We monitor all subgroups, not to be controlling, but to be sure that our brand stays consistent and information shared within these groups is approved and accurate.
All opinions, advice and other information shared by members in discussions or comments are those of the author. Use information at your own risk. Any members are urged to attain professional advice for specific, individual situations as needed.
WHAT HAPPENS IF GUIDELINES AREN’T FOLLOWED?
We may delete your post without notice. If your post is deleted, it’s probably unsuitable based on our terms and we removed it without notice.
If multiple violations occur, we may reach out to you and let you know that you’re in violation of our terms. Our legal team may reach out to you. We may remove you from the program and/or community.
