What is a FemCity Leader?

FemCity Collective Leaders serve as local hosts of our FemCity Collectives in cities, towns, and neighborhoods everywhere.  Most are female entrepreneurs who enjoy connecting and collaborating with other women in business. As a FemCity Collective Leader, she stands out in her community. She and her business shine as she brings business women together for our monthly FemCity workshop programming.


What are the benefits of being a FemCity Collective Leader?

The Collective Leader role provides a platform to gain leadership development, build credibility in the community, and increase your brand visibility.  Successful FemCity Collective Leaders tell us it also leads to increased sales in their businesses. The Collective Leader role is designed for women who are entrepreneurs to use the platform as a way to build their brands in their local communities, expand their circle of influence, increase revenue to their business, and become an inspiration to other women in business around them. Through our Launch + Lead package, we provide the roadmap and all the marketing materials you need to get started. The Launch + Lead package also includes a one year membership for the Collective Leader (that alone is a $197 USD value!).


Who is a good fit to Be a FemCity Collective Leader?

Female entrepreneurs who enjoy connecting with and supporting other women in business and are looking to grow their businesses in their communities.  FemCity is all about promoting and connecting professional women through authentic relationship building. Our Leaders are able to expand their circle of influence and increase revenue to their business -- all while connecting with and supporting a group of women around them. Think of the Collective Leader role like a stage where you and your business can shine (by helping other women shine too!).


What are the responsibilities of a Collective Leader?

A FemCity Collective Leader’s primary responsibilities are to build her Collective membership to 25 women, facilitate our signature FemCity workshops in a warm, welcoming environment each month, and be a champion for women in business. She's a community leader!

Local Collective Leaders secure a location(s) to host the monthly Collective workshops. 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 FemCity workshops because it’s a unique way to showcase their venue to potential new customers and partner with business women in the community. Another win-win!

Local Collective Leaders have flexibility to schedule the monthly FemCity 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?

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 FemCity with open arms. As a leader, you’re bringing potential new customers into the business. FemCity Leaders are great at establishing strong partnerships with local businesses which create a win-win all around.


How do I get 25 members for my Collective?

FemCity recommends each new Collective leader creates a small “Leadership Circle” to get started. This includes herself plus four other women. Together, these five make up the core foundation of a new FemCity 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 begins to happen! Plus, FemCity 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?

Yes. FemCity Collectives are purposefully designed for 25 members. Our FemCity program and curriculum is designed based on this ideal size of 25 because we know that’s where the magic happens. Just imagine 25 female entrepreneurs -- 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 in order to keep it active and open.


Is it a paid position?

No but role is designed to help you build your business, expand your brand, increase your credibility in the community, and ultimately increase revenue to your business. Successful Collective Leaders earn more money in their business by leveraging their role as a FemCity Collective.

Additionally, may earn commission by participating in our FemCity Affiliate program. Affiliates earn commission on membership sales as a result of referring, recommending new members. Affiliates can earn commission on members who join anywhere (whether it’s your local FemCity Collective or in another state or country!). To learn more about our Affiliate Program and to begin earning commission on your referrals, please sign up at link.


What is the earnings potential?

The Collective Leader role is not a paid position.  Instead, it is a licensing opportunity and designed as a platform to help you promote your business, expand your brand, and ultimately increase revenues to your business.  Successful Collective Leaders have experienced tremendous growth in their businesses. Check out our Collective Leader testimonials here.

Additionally, you may earn commission as a FemCity 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 $945.60 USD commission. This example is calculated by 20% commission paid for each membership sale of $197 USD each.

Plus, 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 Global Membership program. The Global 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.
