Advertising Guidelines

Advertising fair play

We respect the WellBeing community so have created our own operational guidelines over the years for advertising to that community. We abide by the guidelines of the TGAC in Australia when it comes to advertising that contains health claims and we also maintain our own list of things we consider “not cool” in advertising. We stick to privacy guidelines and, in addition, don’t bombard our community members with loads of irrelevant material. All this means greater emphasis on businesses that are doing the right thing and have something interesting to offer.

At WellBeing, we are 100 per cent natural by choice, so businesses who advertise with us will not have to compete with ads for drugs, cosmetic poisons or other products Mother Nature wished were never invented! We overtly support natural, organic and sustainable approaches to natural health and living.
