Why Can't I Promote Any External Content or Services on Insight Timer?

At Insight Timer, we are committed to providing a peaceful and mindful environment for our global community. Our platform is designed to foster introspection, contemplation, and personal growth. To maintain this atmosphere, we have established a policy that prohibits our teachers and publishers from promoting external services on our platform.

Our Guidelines For Teachers are the rules that teachers must follow on Insight Timer. These guidelines apply to all types of content and to all places of interaction in our platform including private content, comments, links, audio, images, and so on.

It is important that Insight Timer remains a contemplative space, free from external advertising. We are committed to making Insight Timer sustainable and sharing revenue with our Teacher Community.

We believe this would not be possible if widespread external advertising such as references and links to products, services, websites, workshops, books, courses, social media, retreats, email newsletters, and other platforms, as well as contact details, caused people to leave our community.

What happens if I promote external content?

Considering the above, we have the following process in place in case a teacher violates our guidelines. 

First Stage

Promoting external content will result in us notifying you that you have not met our no-promotions guidelines. Additionally, our system flags and erases comments, messages, and posts containing such content as a default procedure.

Second Stage

Continued promotion after the first stage will result in us sending you a warning notification and action may be taken to close the teacher profile page.

Following this process ensures everyone receives ample information about the guidelines before any final action is taken.

Please read this article if you would like to report someone promoting external products or services on Insight Timer.

We value our partnership with our teacher community and we are also committed to supporting them in monetizing their offerings on Insight Timer. We are constantly exploring new ways to provide our teachers with opportunities to reach a wider audience and generate meaningful revenue. We believe that by working together, we can create a thriving ecosystem of mindfulness, well-being, and personal growth.

We appreciate the understanding and support of our teachers in upholding our values and vision, and we look forward to continuing to grow and evolve together.

If you have questions or clarifications, please email us at publishers@insight.co or chat with us through the Live Chat feature located at the bottom right corner of the Teacher Dashboard.
