What Constitutes Promotion?
Promotion refers to any content that primarily aims to advertise or promote a specific product, service, website or brand. This includes:
- Self-Promotion: Sharing your own content, such as blog posts, videos or projects especially if they are commercial in nature.
- Affiliate Links: Posting links that generate income through affiliate programs.
- Advertising: Directly promoting a productservice or brand without adding substantial value or context to the community.
Guidelines for Promotional Posts

- Engagement: Ensure that promotional posts contribute positively to the community. This means providing valuable information initiating discussions or addressing specific needs of the members.
- Frequency: Avoid excessive posting of promotional content. Overwhelming the community with repeated self-promotion may lead to the removal of posts or other actions by moderators.
- Context and Value: Add context to your promotional content. Explain how it relates to the community’s interests or how it provides value to the members. Educational or informative content is generally better received than pure advertisements.
