Premium Tracks are top-quality audio content such as guided meditations, music tracks, talks, podcasts, or poems.
They are part of our MemberPlus subscription which unlocks access to all premium content to subscribers.
Premium Tracks offer an opportunity for teachers to generate meaningful revenue.
What is the difference between a Free and a Premium Track?
Please read this article for more information on how we pay our teachers.
Where can I upload Premium Tracks?
You will be able to upload MemberPlus Premium Tracks directly from your "Premium Tracks" tab in your dashboard.
Is there a minimum number of tracks I can upload?
There is no minimum, the more frequently you would like to share content with our community, the better.
Can I delete or re-use Free Tracks and publish them as Premium?
In order to be mindful and considerate with current listeners and followers, we ask teachers to please not unpublish free tracks in order to re-upload them as premium tracks: this may upset users as they will not be able to listen to those tracks anymore.
We would like to kindly invite you to upload new high-quality content to enrich your current offering. This can be a great opportunity to provide your audience with fresh and valuable materials, and we are excited to see what you will create!
Can I have the same Free Track published as a Premium Track?
If you have already published a track as a free version, it is not possible to also publish it as a premium version on the platform. Even if you make slight changes to the title, description, audio quality, or length of the track, it is not allowed to duplicate the same content. It is important that our premium subscribers see the value of getting access to unique content. We invite you to upload new high-quality content that will enrich your current offering.
Can I upload the lessons from my active Course as Premium Tracks?
No, you can either have those audios published together as a course or individually as premium tracks, but you can't have the same audio published twice on the platform.
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to publish your Course's lessons as Premium Tracks so we can assist you in unpublishing your course.
A Premium Track should be completely new to Insight Timer:
The same track can not be published as Free and also as Premium.
A Free track can not be deleted/edited in order to be re-uploaded as a Premium track.
A course lesson can not be published as a premium track.
The same track can not be published under two different publisher accounts.
To be able to publish premium tracks you must have 2 free tracks published (free library).
Before recording a premium track, please make sure you have the relevant qualifications, accreditations, or expertise, where applicable, to support the topic you will be covering. Please upload all the relevant certificates or documentation to your Teacher Dashboard > Publisher profile > Accreditations.
If adding background music to your track, please make sure you own the copyrights or you are using royalty-free music.
Please make sure your selected image meets our Image Requirements.
We take issues with copyright very seriously. Before you upload anything onto the app, please read this article.
Disclaimers & Warnings
If your audio tackles sensitive and triggering topics like depression or eating disorders, we require that you place a “trigger warning” note at the beginning of the recording as well as the track description. It must also be emphasized that it is not a substitute for professional help and that there are no scientific claims.
Furthermore, reminders to exercise necessary caution and steps to ensure health and safety, like avoiding driving or operating heavy machinery, should also be included in the recording and the description when necessary.
To make sure that Insight Timer remains a place of refuge, we refrain from publishing tracks that deal with or contain any of the following topics:
Sexuality plays a huge role in achieving overall well-being. However, until we put appropriate filters for tracks that are sexual in nature, contain sexual references, have sexual undertones, and/or are sexually suggestive, we shall refrain from accepting such.
Hyper-Political, Hate Speech, & Explicit Language
Content that promotes or discredits specific organizations or movements will not be accepted. Topics like this may be divisive and polarizing to a general audience. We also do not tolerate hate speech or discrimination of any kind. Courses with explicit language may be accepted as long as it is within the context and not used profusely. A disclaimer/warning in the description is also required.
Any Form of Hypnosis
We believe hypnosis should be practiced only in a safe environment, preferably in a face-to-face setting with a trained practitioner.
Content Led by Children or Individuals Under the Age of 16
While we applaud and encourage starting a mindfulness practice at a young age, we’d like our resources to be provided by qualified teachers.
References to Use of Substances
We prohibit content that references, promotes, encourages, or implies the use of drugs, alcohol, or any state-altering substances.
Money-making Programs & Financial Services
We do not accept content that deals with, promotes, sells, or offers any financial services. This includes crypto-currencies, insurance, multi-level marketing, investment plans, wealth management, and others.
