With the Business Bower program, you’ll have access to your ideal community members, anticipating their needs and delivering on them to turn them into your biggest fans and lifelong customers.
“Communities not only facilitate growth, but they can be the most valuable and honest source of feedback for businesses.”
You make the rules!
Creating a customised online community around your brand means that you own the digital real estate that houses it. Your clients follow YOU, so no social media changes can affect your impact.
Creating A Powerful Community Is Ideal If:
You’re a community manager seeing the risks of social media and you want a stable community.

You lead a non-profit organisation and need a more engaged online community to leverage your offline activity.
You’re a business owner (of any size!) wanting to build a digital asset for sale or scale.

POWERFUL ONLINE COMMUNITIES CREATE
COMMERCIAL & CULTURAL IMPACT
HERE’S WHAT HAVING YOUR OWN CAN DO FOR YOU
BUILD TRUST & CONNECTION
Having a community allows for easier client reach and transparency, which helps build trust.
When your clients trust you, they trust that your product or service will meet the standards they require.
AMPLIFY BRAND AWARENESS
Community-building events and knowledge sharing will lead to brand loyalty and awareness.
These are two key aspects to increasing your sales, as they directly build up your brand’s reputation.
GATHER USER FEEDBACK
Knowing what your clients think is key to improving your current offer and identifying new product opportunities.
Having your own community saves you time and money by replacing research with direct feedback.
ENABLE CLIENT REFERRALS
People are 84% more likely to trust a referral from someone they know, so building a community helps bridge the gap with new prospects by getting your clients to recommend a product they know and trust.
PLANNING ON SELLING YOUR BUSINESS?
Having a large, strong, and committed community has been proven to dramatically increase the value of a business when selling.
Investors and future owners can see the potential behind a community that checks all the points above, because they know that no social media platform will ever give them the freedom and connection power that their own community does.
If you’re planning on selling your business, whether that is now or in a few years, building a community that you control around it will provide a competitive advantage, build equity in your business, and add to its selling price!
The bigger and more engaged the better, so why not start now?

The opportunities that have come out of the Bowabirds program as a result of looking at business and personal life have been insurmountable. The further I go along, the more encouraged I am to believe in myself again. How many things do you really want, that you’re not quite sure how to get? When you’ve got 3 coaches who are listening to you and you are listening to yourself, anything is possible. Invest the times, invest the money, and trust yourself…back yourself.
We have been thrilled with the resultant interaction and capability of Bowabirds, and with the simplicity and ease of use, by both the administrators and by the participants. A modest level of technical literacy is ample, and the functionality is perfect. The support offered is superb, and we are pleased to support a local provider…
We have expanded our initial course to (currently) 4 streams of learning, and the sequencing is working admirably.
Additionally, we are planning to launch another company and learning program in 2022, and will certainly be utilising Bowabirds again for this undertaking…
Communities have a powerful impact on your business, your customers and buyers (when it’s time to sell).
