A Business Opportunity

Your own business with great return on investment

A part or full-time opportunity for ambitious people who want a business that helps other businesses to grow.

Sterling Networks is a business for people who are enthusiastic about business. As part of the UK's fastest growing business community, our franchisees support their members to grow their business through a proven, professional and supportive network that helps them to increase sales and build long term profitable relationships.

With a record number of new business formations in the UK, more and more business owners face the challenge of finding the support and customers they need to grow their business. Networking is the most effective and productive way to generate word of mouth referrals and our franchisees (Group Directors) earn revenue from members who invest a modest annual fee to join a local business community that helps them achieve their personal and business ambitions. 

 "All business owners want access to friendly support and increased sales. Sterling provides that for me and for the members of my group" - Darren Wilkins, Worcester

How does it work?

Sterling builds local business communities where members meet every two weeks over breakfast or lunch to network, collaborate and increase sales through word of mouth referrals. With a proven structure and agenda members learn new business wisdom, actively network in an open session, arrange 1-2-1 meetings and bring other members up to date with what is happening in their business. 

Meetings are professional and fun - inspiring and supporting local businesses to succeed. Groups tend to grow rapidly as members benefit from being part of a larger community and naturally become advocates who help the Group Director expand the group. 


What are the Benefits?

  • Networking is the most effective and productive way to develop a business
  • Members pay a modest annual fee that generates long term profit
  • More small business owners than ever need support and referrals
  • At the heart of the local business community helping drive the local economy
  • Members have a vested interest in helping their group to grow 
  • Part of the wider Sterling business community
  • High quality training and support from Sterling HQ

A part or full-time opportunity

Running one group of 25-30 members is a commitment of less than two days a month and your investment can be easily recovered in the first year. From then on running a group builds a business community that provides sustainable, long term part time or second income.

Some entrepreneurs with other business interests choose to build a networking group in order to provide a source of supprt and referrals. Think of it a self funding business development opportunity with a group of 25-30 advocates for your products and services! 

If you are able to commit more time then there is also the chance to run multiple groups. There are towns and cities that have three or more Sterling networking groups, with a mix of breakfast and lunchtime meetings. The choice is yours - whether you choose to run one group or more you will be building a profitable business for yourself that directly helps your members to grow their business and that makes a significant contribution to the local economy.
