There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding what is allowed and what isn’t when subscribing to the Mentor Group.

While it’s true that you get access to the hidden forums, with all the information and posts we don’t allow to be published publicly, the following rules apply:

Mentor Group Access:

What is allowed:
  1. You can have up to 3 signature lines with 1 link to your website. Your signature can include contact details such as your email address, phone number, etc.
  2. You can PM (private message / start a conversation with) forum users IF they ask to contact you. You are not allowed to contact people directly without permission from them.
  3. You can have a link to your website and other contact details on your user profile, BUT:
What is not allowed:
a) You are not allowed to ‘post spam’ the forum, meaning that you are not allowed to create posts just to promote your signature or increase your post count!​
b) You are not allowed to post messages that say things such as ‘Contact me’, or ‘I can help’, or ‘We provide XXX services for lots of clients/customers’ or similar. We call this ‘hidden advertising’ and if you do this you may be given warning points or, in certain cases, be banned immediately.​
c) You are not allowed to post an ad or anything that could be considered an ad on your user profile, including the whole catalogue of services you offer, fees, etc.​
d) You are not allowed to create any thread that could be considered an ad or that has the sole purpose of advertising your services! If you want to promote your services, you need to buy an advertising thread / sticky thread or stick to banner advertising.​
e) You are not allowed to do any direct or hidden advertising on the forum, it’s that simple.​

Paid Advertising - your options:

There is also a lot of confusion about how you’re able to advertise on this forum, so here's how:

1) You can go to this link – Advertising – where all advertising options are listed. You can buy your advertising here and get your campaign started right after payment and approval.
2) You don’t need to have Mentor Group access to advertise, but you must be registered on the forum to be able to buy advertising slots.

The rules are simple and should be easy to comply with. If you try to find loopholes, bypass the rules or play any other funny games, you will get warning points or simply get banned.

We will have access to hidden / secret forums, why didn't you include it above?

You should make a pop up to all Mentor Group users that they confirm to know the rules!

Agree, you should have some pop up that splash up on the screen before you let people pay for Mentor Group access.

UPDATE!

We will setup a marketplace forum in the TOP 3 forums (on top of this forum) it allows service provider to buy a page there for advertising as long as they are a Mentor Group member

The sales thread is depending on the Mentor Group membership, so if your mentor gorup membership expires the ad will too, to advertise there will cost roughly 400 - 600 EURO one time setup fee.

They will not be made sticky unless there is paid for it, we consider a fee of EUR 10 or 20 per month to make it sticky and max 5 sticky threads.
