WIBN Membership

What Does WIBN Mean To Our Members?

Of 110 women who joined WIBN for 1 year all but 5 were still members at the end of the year and all of these had increased their business turnover to cover the cost of their WIBN membership and monthly meeting fees.

25 members had increased their profits by more than 5 times their outlay and 80 members had increased their profits by more than 10 times their outlay.

The 5 remaining had various reasons for not renewing their membership not related to business but including ill health and moving house.

WIBN Membership – Support, Share, Succeed: No price!

WIBN Membership is open to both business owners and employed women. Being part of WIBN will enable you to promote your business, its products or services to like minded women who will refer your business to their customers, clients, friends and family members. The power of ‘Word of Mouth’ has been proven to be most effective. When you become a member of the network you will also have access to other group meetings around the area (providing that there is no conflict of profession in the group you wish to visit).

You can use the ever expanding WIBN network effectively to meet many more members and fly the flag for your company. You will of course, support your ‘home’ group first, on a monthly basis but also plan plenty of additional networking at other groups to spread your ‘net’ wider!

WIBN Membership is by application only and is usually submitted after visiting a group meeting. Some members however, have decided to secure their professional slot in a group (to lock out the local competition), before they have even attended a meeting!

If you enjoy the meeting why not join straightaway to secure your professional slot. Speak to the group representative for advice on the next step and payment.
