Women TIES is successfully helping women entrepreneurs promote and expand their regional marketplace with extensive membership benefits and services. Through this website, our popular weekly e-newsletter and special regional events, women entrepreneurs are forming strategic networking relationships both online and in person, increasing their corporate brand name, buying from each other, and expanding their regional marketplace.
Women TIES believes in promoting all women entrepreneurs—if you just started in business or have been in business for twenty years, we want to promote your company. If you are a sole proprietor or running a hundred person corporation, we want you to be involved with us. If you do business downstate or upstate, in the western or eastern part of the state, we want you to be affiliated with us.
Length of time in business, corporate size and business location does not matter, what is important is women entrepreneurs designate themselves as women-owned businesses through Women TIES so we create a strong economic organization where women are dedicated to each other's entrepreneurial success.
MEMBERSHIP LEVELS and BENEFITS
Women TIES offers two membership levels—enhanced and premium with varying degrees of promotional benefits based on a woman's interest in the degree of advertising she wants for her company. Each membership level offers women entrepreneurs the ability to:
The membership directory gives women entrepreneurs the opportunity to promote information about their companies on our frequently visited website. Not only do you join a sisterhood of women entrepreneurs by being listed but you advertise your company, company services or products, and business information to everyone who comes across our website. Online advertising is where businesses need to be for future business success. Make sure you are listed where it counts. New and renewing members are rotated on our homepage for additional advertising. Be listed with Women TIES.
Women TIES' unique regional organization will connect women entrepreneurs living in specific New York areas by allowing regional designation with membership registration. Allowing women to list regions where they operate their headquarters and where they want to network for new business opportunities, opens up new sales opportunities. Women TIES will establish quarterly events in regions where a group of women entrepreneurs are interested in Women TIES helping them create a stronger local network. Learn more about our regional locations and volunteers on our About Us page.
Members can also list discounts on products and services, list special pricing on new products, and offer reduced rates for events, seminars and programs on this special Women TIES Regional Marketplace page. Specials can be listed 365 days a year to help increase the opportunity of corporate sales. We then cross promote the specials weekly to over 2,000 women to brand your name and sales special. This special service was created to foster buying between women-owned businesses across the state so the geographic distance between companies doesn't hamper buying from each other. This is one of the best promotional and sales tools Women TIES offers its members. To learn more about the Regional Marketplace Specials click here.
Strategic sales and education luncheons are designed to feature successful women entrepreneurs whose gusto, intellect, and business savvy have propelled them to success in growing their company. These women share their success strategies and business expertise on the most relevant business topics with the audience.
These luncheons provide valuable strategic sales and promotional opportunities for attendees. Our signature "sales" document is handed out at each event creating more opportunities for sales follow-up after the event. We strongly encourage women entrepreneurs, from all over the state, to travel to different cities to expand their marketplace, promote their businesses, and forge new economic connections with other women business owners.
Upcoming lunch information, presenter credentials and reservation information can be found on the Events page.
