Rules & Guidelines

The main goal of our community is to help your business thrive, but to do that we need to follow some rules to make sure it’s a good place for everyone.

  1. Be kind and treat others as you’d like to be treated – nice and simple. We pride ourselves on being a positive and respectful space. This is an all-ages, multicultural group. We do not tolerate rudeness, offensive language, or hostile behavior. Posts causing anger or conflict will be removed.
  2. All posts, comments, and discussions should be directly related to starting, running, or growing a small business in New Zealand. Irrelevant content will be removed.
  3. Share your experiences, challenges, and success stories related to small business operations in New Zealand. Valuable insights, tips, and advice are encouraged.
  4. We work hard to make Side Hustles NZ a positive, engaging space – all of which takes a lot of time. On occasion, we share our own affiliate links and ask that you support those rather than sharing other links.
  5. Please share info in the group so everyone can benefit. If you need to share private information, check that the member is happy to receive a PM first and explain why you want to send one. If you receive unsolicited PMs from members of our group, please let admins/mods know.
  6. Do not share personal or confidential information about other group members without their consent. This includes their contact details or business information.
  7. Give more to this group than you take. Organic self-promo may be appropriate in response through comments – not to start a conversation. Please post content directly rather than sharing from your page. Only include your link/tag if relevant and helpful.
  8. Refrain from sending unsolicited direct messages (DMs/PMs), friend requests, texts, or emails to fellow group members.. Members doing so may be subject to removal from the group, pending the discretion of the Admin. Seek permission before sending messages to other members.
  9. This is a positive space and, where possible, try to keep it that way. If you really feel the need to post a critical review of an experience it should be designed to help our members, not have a go at a business. Please be mindful of how you phrase your comments and posts.
  10. No follow ladders (follow me, and ill follow you)
  11. No ‘yes’ ladders (comment yes and ill send you info)
  12. No link in comments – share them in the main post
  13. Links can only be shared on #marketday & #freebie days
  14. No sharing other groups
  15. No creating events within the group, unless admin have approved
