Networkers are Approved community members that have their own network in a particular sector or geographical area. This includes membership organizations, incubators, accelerators, consultants and service providers, marketplaces, retail outlets, and certifying bodies.
Networkers are able to use the site as a tool to highlight and support their own community, for example, they can:
Draw on the online application form and crowdsourced monitoring system for their own curation process
Add and remove vendors from their network and easily maintain vendor records
Create a network page with their own logo and story that highlights all the vendors in their community
Earn a share of any revenue generated by their community on the site.
Network membership is managed under the Networks section of the brand account page. If you are included in another brand's network, it will be listed in this section. If you do not feel that you should be included in a particular network, you can leave at any time. The below image shows the Network section for a community member that has been included in two different networks.
