FreshBooks online community gives small business owners a place to ask questions, learn, network, and earn rewards. All of this is included with your FreshBooks subscription!
It can be tough for entrepreneurs to find ways to connect with other business owners and like-minded people. Moreover, the feeling of isolation can be overwhelming. Business owners need support and advice to take their business to the next level.
So what did we do? We launched The Owners Club! It’s an online community where entrepreneurs can meet, share best practices, learn, and network. The Owners Club offers a positive and friendly environment where members can seek free answers to common small business questions and gain valuable tips they can apply to their business.
How Does the Community Work?
Challenges and Rewards
The Owners Club is a gamified experience where members can participate by earning points for completing challenges. Challenges include educational content, such as The 3 Best Types of Advertising for Small Business, to coffee break fun, like sharing the ways you procrastinate from doing the tasks you despise (admin work, we’re looking at you).
The best part of completing these challenges is that you earn points that can be redeemed for rewards, including gift cards. Yes, that’s right, you’re rewarded for being an active member of The Owners Club. As your point total grows, you earn badges, such as Community Rockstar, signaling to your fellow members that you’re a valued member of The Owners Club. Rock on!
The discussion boards in The Owners Club allow members to create discussion topics with their peers. Not only are members able to ask questions and create engaging conversation, but discussion boards allow for the opportunity to create connections and network with fellow business owners.
