Monthly Network Membership
We know that sometimes you might feel unsure about jumping straight into an annual commitment (even when it's as affordable as our network membership is). So we've created this great option to give you a chance to try before you commit.
You can read all about our membership benefits in the section below under Annual Membership, but of course your access will automatically renew monthly).
As a Monthly Member, you won't receive Inspire Champion status. This is the status that gives you bonus promotional perks.
To become an Inspire Champion you will need to either join us as an Annual Member (in which case, Champion status is granted free of charge so you pay nothing other than the same equivalent of £10/month)
OR you can select to become an Inspire Champion with our add-on option. This is an annual subscription of £25 per year.
You'll be given this option along with full Terms and Conditions at Checkout when you click below, but please be aware that not all Champion perks are available to Monthly Members.

Q. What level of business experience do I need to join The Inspire Network?
A. It doesn't matter! Some of our members are BRAND new to business with no previous experience and they haven't come up with a name yet. Our more experienced members love helping ladies to get started and see them fly! Others are established business owners who work for themselves or have small teams. We find the support is relevant and beneficial for all industries and sectors, because it's not about selling, it's about providing support.
We suggest that members get most value from our standard memberships during the period while they are still involved in their business day to day. Company directors who have more than 5-10 employees are likely to gain more benefit from The Boardroom environment. However, anyone is welcome to join us - if you think you have something to give and something to gain, jump on in!
Q. How will being a member actually benefit my business?
A. In SO many ways! Members who engage in the opportunities available regularly and consistently report:
- Increased confidence
- Increased focus and efficiency in decision-making
- Feeling more positive
- Making good decisions
- Feeling empowered by helping others
- Increased sales
- Increased business skills
- Increased knowledge
- Finding trusted suppliers and business service providers
- Making great friends
- Making new connections who introduce you to those who can provide expert help and advice
Q. I want to meet local people. What opportunities are available to me?
A. We are a national network and run national sessions virtually to make sure everyone can engage.
However we do have regional sub-groups within our Hub, and are in the process of starting to look for local leaders to run virtual events within these groups, to enable you to meet others who are local to you. We expect that these will take place monthly, virtually, subject to availability, however it's important to understand that we don't guarantee local meetings as a membership benefit.
We also hope to start some new format Inspire Network face to face meetings once Covid-19 restrictions allow it. These will be local networking meetings to help you find local businesses near to you, who you can support with referrals and recommendations. But we will continue to apply our ethos of "no selling in the room" and must stress these will be available at an additional cost.
Q. What does "Give First" mean?
A. Members in Inspire work together to achieve success. Mutual support is crucial. This only happens when individuals understand the importance of "Give First" concept. We love to help you grow your business through the power of relationships and working together with other women, and believe in the philosophy of "Give First".
To "Give First" means to be willing to look for ways to help others - whether that's empowering them with some knowledge, inspiring them by sharing an experience, encouraging them with a referral, your business, or even just a kind word, or sharing a skill. These are all ways we can give. We know that relationships fail when you look only for what you can take. So we "Give First" to promote strong and long-lasting collaborative relationships and business friendships. It's as simple as that.
If EVERYONE gives, then EVERYONE also receives. What goes around comes around. If you don't feel you have much to give, don't worry, just by being willing to listen or offer your thoughts or opinions, brings more value than you think. But we do ask you to look for opportunities to help rather than wait to be asked, where possible!
Q. Why are your prices lower than other business groups?
Because our ethos of "Give First", applies to us as an organisation too! We believe in offering as much value to members as we can for the best price possible.
We ask members to refer us to their friends and connections rather than to pay us more money each month, because that's how YOU, our members, get the most value from your experience. Well-attended meetings and more members to connect with will help your business, as well as enable us to keep our prices low for you.
Q. Are you a business networking group?
No. We are not a "business networking group" as you may have encountered in the past. We don't do "networking". We do relationship-building and peer support as a community. We may offer meetings that facilitate the expansion of your network, but we don't do pitches, selling or business card swapping (unless someone asks you for more info or to get in touch, in which case, go for it!)
We are a membership-based organisation that focuses on collaboration. We look to develop sense of community where members support rather than sell, as we know this is where members find most value.
Q. I need more sales. Will joining The Inspire Network help me?
A. Yes, if you are willing to get involved consistently and learn from others, and take up the opportunities we offer you.
We offer advertising opportunities within our app Marketplace, as well as within our Facebook Community group and Shopping Centre group. We encourage you to invite your business friends to the Community and any "other" friends to the Shopping Centre which helps expose your posts to them within our groups.
We hope will help you find new customers, but this is separate to our meetings.
It is also possible to significantly boost your sales by attending our meetings WITHOUT selling! It really is possible! And it's why our active members love coming to our relationship and support-focused meetings. We teach you how as a member.
Q. Can I promote my business in meetings?
A. Yes, within the parameters we set out, and we advise you not to sell to our members but only to educate and inform them so they can help refer you business!!
Inspire meetings take a masterminding format...which is a bit like group coaching if you haven't heard of it. They're not a place to sell or tout for business, only to get to know each other better and to learn from one another within a safe space.
We encourage you to use meetings to find like-minded members to become part of each others' Secret Sales Team (and any other members of the team that you don't have in your business!) to support one another. This may mean looking to obtain referrals and new business or simply just to find people you can turn to when you need assistance. This is far more powerful than trying to sell to your network.
Q. How can I keep in touch with members and find out about the meetings?
The Network Membership allows you access to The Inspire Hub, our mobile app tailored to assist you communicate with other members and obtain peer support. We have a messaging facility and each member has a profile which we encourage you to update with a current bio and links to help other members get to know you (and we encourage you to check out theirs too).
The Hub Calendar is where we promote our regular virtual meetings throughout the month. You'll note our weekly meetings are called Inspire Masterminding & Relationship-building. And our monthly free training/workshops are called Equip Masterclasses. These are typically an hour long and feature 30 minutes of teaching (recorded and made available on-demand in the Hub video resources area) plus 30 minute Q&A which is only available to live participants.
Q. When are the meetings and do I have to pay extra?
A. The meetings take place on different days and times, designed to be accessible for those with varying schedules. We offer one national meeting per week, alternating between mornings (after the school run) and evenings. All of our online meetings are included within your super low membership fee! The only other things we charge for are in-person meetings, because they cost us more to run.
Q. Do I have to attend all the meetings?
A. No!! We know you are a very busy business owner, and if you're not busy right now, you will be soon! You can attend as often as you like - we suggest once per month as a minimum ideally. Some members like to attend fortnightly for a daytime session, or for an evening session. Some members do both. But we don't expect this! It's entirely down to you, and with such low fees, even if you only watch the Masterclasses on demand, or use the badge to advertise in our free group and nothing else, it's absolutely worth it.
Q. I'm not good with apps. Can I still access The Inspire Hub?
A. Yes! We have a mobile browser version you can use on a computer if you don't wish to download the app via the App Store on your mobile device.I'M READY TO BE INSPIRED, SIGN ME UP!
