WHAT ARE THE RESPONSIBILITIES OF A COLLECTIVE LEADER THAT STARTS A RWN WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP?

A Rising Women Network Collective Leader’s primary responsibilities are to build a community for around 25 women, facilitate our signature Rising Women Network Collective program in a warm, welcoming environment each month, and be a champion for local business women. She’s a community leader!

Local Collective Leaders secure a location(s) to host the monthly networking event. This can be one location or a combination of several [think: professional office, conference room, quiet coffee shop, yoga studio, an art gallery, or local library]. Many local businesses love hosting RWN networking gatherings because it’s a unique way to showcase their venue to potential new customers and partner with women in the community. Another win-win!

Local Collective Leaders have flexibility to schedule the monthly Rising Women Network gathering on a day and time that works best for her and her members. Leaders are highly encouraged to schedule it on a recurring date and time each month to make it easy and memorable for all members.

HOW DO I FIND A VENUE TO HOST MY COLLECTIVE GATHERING EACH MONTH FOR MY RWN WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP?

Collective Leaders have the flexibility to host in a professional office, conference room, at a quiet coffee shop, in a yoga studio, an art gallery, bright and airy nail salon, or even the local library. Our Collective Leaders find that many local businesses welcome Rising Women Network with open arms. As a leader, you’re bringing potential new customers into the business. Rising Women Network Leaders are great at establishing strong partnerships with local businesses which create a win-win all around.

HOW DO I GROW MY RWN WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP?

Rising Women Network recommends each new Collective leader creates a small “Founders Circle” to get started. This includes herself plus four other women. Together, these five make up the core foundation of a new Rising Women Network Collective and work together to make it successful. As an example, if each of the initial five members secure five more members, you’ve quickly reached a membership of 25 women in business — that’s a completed Collective where magic flourishes! Rising Women Network provides lots of tools such as sample email outreach, social media posts, beautifully-designed marketing images, and a plethora of resources to help you.

IS THERE A MINIMUM REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN AN ACTIVE RWN WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP?

Yes. Rising Women Network Collectives are purposefully designed for 25 members. Our Rising Women Network program and curriculum is designed based on this ideal size of 25 because we know that’s where the magic happens. Just imagine 25 women — all supporting and championing each other throughout the community. It’s powerful. However, we realize people move and circumstances change, and sometimes membership changes happen too. To benefit the community and to be of service for women, leaders are required to maintain a minimum of 12 members in the Collective, active and consistent local free gatherings and positive feedback from members in order to keep it active and open.

IS STARTING A RWN WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP A PAID POSITION?

Leaders who would like to monetize the role leverage our Rising Women Network Affiliate program to earn compensation. Otherwise, the role is not paid and it is designed to help you increase your connectivity in the community, and make a difference for women locally. Successful Collective Leaders earn money by leveraging their role as a Rising Women Network Collective Ambassador.

Ambassador Affiliates earn 20-40% commission on membership sales as a result of sharing the Rising Women Network community. Ambassador Affiliates can earn commission on members who join anywhere (whether it’s your local Rising Women Network Collective or in another state or country!) and there are three levels in total for compensation. 20-40% on the 1st tier and 3-5% on 2nd and 3rd tiers.

WHAT IS THE EARNINGS POTENTIAL OF STARTING AND RUNNING A RWN WOMEN’S NETWORKING GROUP?

The Collective Leader role is not a paid position.  Instead, it is a licensing opportunity and designed as a platform to help you make a big positive difference in the community and increase connectivity in your community.

Additionally, you may earn commission as a Rising Women Network Ambassador Affiliate whether or not you are a Collective Leader. We recommend you do both at the same time as this is how many of our Leaders earn extra money. Affiliates earn 20% or more commission, depending on the type of sale, for any membership sales made as a result of a customer using your unique affiliate link. As an example, if a Collective Leader uses her unique affiliate link to secure the 24 members of her Collective, that would amount to $899.40 commission. This example is calculated by 20% commission paid for each membership sale of $15 mo each.

Plus, Ambassador Affiliates can refer members to other locations, and get paid commission for membership sales anywhere. And for even higher earnings, affiliates can refer members to our Business Membership program. The Business membership level has a higher price point and thus, commission is higher as well. So, the earnings potential is limitless and largely dependent on your interest in such earnings.
