Welcome to Aestheticians Connect!
Aestheticians Connect is a FREE Facebook community of aestheticians and aesthetic experts that support one another, ask questions on skincare, marketing, or technique, and celebrate each others success. I created this group as a way to help fulfill a vision of my company, AddoAesthetics, to truly elevate our industry. This is a space of support, knowledge, and community. There are no dumb questions here.
Key people in this group:
Daniela Woerner - Licensed Aesthetician, Founder of AddoAesthetics, Creator of the Aesthetic Experts Club, Creator of this group, Aestheticians Connect. To learn more about Daniela click HERE.
Berit Bailey - AddoAesthetics Executive Assistant, aka Daniela's right hand woman. Berit plays a large role in adding new members and making sure the community guidelines are enforced.
This is a large group and to ensure that this space remains focused on support, knowledge, and community, I have established some community guidelines:
No MLM Discussion
MLM stands for Multi-Level-Marketing, and refers to brands like Rodan + Fields, It Works, Mary Kay, Doterra, and many more with a similar business model. The discussion of these brands, positive or negative, is not allowed in this group. There are other groups that have been created just for aestheticians to discuss and learn about these brands. Please do so in that space.
No Self Promotion
No self promotion is allowed in this group. This includes the promotion of a course/workshop/class that you are affiliated with in some way. The ONLY exception to this is on the Tuesday Course, Trainings, Workshops Thread.
Definition of Self Promotion
~ Selling anything - courses, workshops, programs, classes, coaching, equipment (equipment may be sold on the Equipment Sale Sunday Thread only)
~ Promoting your webinar or event, or creating an event in the group. If you have a webinar or event that you feel would benefit the group, please email me directly at [email protected] If I feel your webinar or event would be beneficial to the group I will gladly post it myself for you.
~ No posting links to your social media accounts or other Facebook groups. The ONLY exception to this is on the Follow Me Friday thread where we post links to our Facebook business page but other Facebook groups are still not allowed.
Be Kind to One Another
This is a negativity free zone. I started this group with support, knowledge, and community as the foundation, for licensed aestheticians (PROFESSIONALS) so we need to communicate with one another in a professional and respectful way. Remember that words can sometimes get lost in translation via the internet so please choose your words wisely.
When you are commenting on a thread think to yourself "Is this how I would speak with a colleague at the spa?" If it's not, perhaps you should consider rewording your comment.
I am completely OK with professional dialogue and disagreements - in fact, I think those discussions are the ones that help us learn and grow the most - just keep it professional.
No use of images without consent of owner
This should be pretty self explanatory but I felt the need to state it for clarity. There are often before and after photos or images of other aestheticians patients that are posted in the group (with the consent of the patient). These photos may not be shared outside of the group without the express written consent of the individual in the photos.
Violation of any of these guidelines will result in your post being deleted and you being banned from the group.
If you have been removed from the group and are wanting to inquire about the reason please DO NOT private message the admins. You may send an email to [email protected] and a member of our support team will get back to you in a timely manner during business hours, Monday - Friday, 9:00AM - 5:00PM Pacific Standard Time.
*Note* We reserve the right to update the group rules without notice.
Now that we've got that out of the way, let's get into all of the awesome benefits you receive being a member of the group!
