If you feel that you have an excellent understanding of your industry, niche and are ready to become an authority in your given field you may find that a master level membership is right for you.
Master level members have accumulated most of the the skills they need to to step out into a targeted environment where they will be well received by a community that can greatly benefit from their wisdom.
An ideal Master Level member will immediately see the value in guest blogging for the BizLink Global community and be active in engaging members by participating in riveting discussions, pushing the boundaries of what is “known” and encouraging others to do away with certain assumptions and patterns that don’t work for them or their business. Master level Members will likely be bloggers, coaches, consultants, authors, speakers, those who like to teach or those that simply want to network globally and market their products in our store.
The Masters Level Membership is designed to facilitate top professionals that have a focus on education as they extend their reach to greater global audiences and elite strategic partners. It is BizLink Global’s belief that a business or brand can only continue to grow from within a community and we can provide you with the perfect environment to explore your full potential.
To apply, you will need to help us understand your vision and current capabilities. BizLink Global would like to stress that Master’s level membership is not for everyone. The types of professionals you will find here typically have, or are in the process of launching, information products like: books, ebooks, audiobooks and video seminars that they may offer in our store or through our library or more service oriented products like coaching or niche programs, teleseminars and masterminds.
Master level members will gain the ability to host their own Hot Spot where they will choose a niche area to engage BizLink Global members in discussions on their topic of expertise. Master level members can gain exposure to their targeted market here and introduce themselves to business owners that will directly benefit from their knowledge.
Master level members may be invited to participate as a part of the “Coaching Couch” team. These experts are hand selected by BizLink Global founder, Patty Farmer, and are in a coveted position within the BizLink Global Community. Being a part of the Coaching Couch team you have the opportunity to give back to your community and gain exposure to a wide audience.
As a Masters level member, you will have full access to upload educational material to our growing library where bachelor level members can select educational titles and rate your material, helping you expand your reach and hone your products.
All Master level members will be given the opportunity to be a guest blogger on BizLink Global, further establishing your authority in the public and private side of our community.
Master level members can do more than simply market products and host discussions. Opportunities exist in many forms for this level of membership and include:
BizLink Global will also be reviewing select candidates from the master level members for our upcoming PHD certification course which can help distinguish you as a seasoned professional, qualifying you for invites on speaking engagements, masterminds and more.
An ideal Bachelor level member is an entrepreneur or business owner that understands they need to expand their networking to their global community. At the Associates level, members are still learning what skills they need and what they need to do while defining a vision for their business. Bachelor’s level members have a clear understanding of what they need and a strong vision for their business.
It is BizLink Global’s belief that once you can clearly see where you want to go, you realize the specific skills you need to get there. As a Bachelor level member, you will spend a considerable amount of time gaining those very skills you have identified on your own time. Once you begin to learn those skills, more questions will naturally be raised and you can follow a path of discovery that will eventually take your business to the next level.
Ideal members of this level will be looking to build their teams, acquire new skills and expand their global reach. They will connect with experts in a diverse array of fields through our Hot Spot Discussions and Coaching Couch sessions, enabling them to ask the questions they want and get the answers they need.
How you decide to connect as a member of BizLink Global is up to you. BizLink Global is not a social media platform and does not limit or restrict its members in how they choose to connect or share information, with the exception of the CAN-SPAM Act. All members will have full access to our member directory and online store, where they can make connections and purchase educational materials.
Bachelor level members will have full access to our private members area “Hot Spot” discussions, where Master level members will be hosting discussions surrounding their areas of expertise. Like the coaching couch, you are encouraged to follow discussions that interest you and participate in them, gaining the direction and answers you need to move your business forward.
As a bachelor level member, you will have full access to all sessions with our renowned “Coaching Couch” experts. These experts are hand selected by BizLink Global founder, Patty Farmer, and serve the BizLink Global Community. You will have the ability to read their topics and ask them questions, allowing you full immersion in the discussions and an opportunity to directly participate with experts in their field. You will often see Coaching Couch experts educational products in our store and library.
As a Bachelor level member, you will have unlimited access to our growing library where you can earmark topics and talks that are right for you, to watch and read at your convenience. This membership level allows you to rate material once you have reviewed it, helping other members find useful information more quickly and accurately.
There are many ways to begin your experience as an Bachelors level member. Some of our Bachelors find it useful to narrow their focus to one area per month. For example, one month you could focus on learning skills that help you forge better strategic partnerships, while next month you could focus on list building skills. Once you have identified and conquered a skill set, many new skills will become attractive for you to learn as you grasp the full scope of your potential.
As a Bachelor level member, you will gain exposure to like-minded individuals in our global rolodex (our directory), allowing you to quickly identify and attract the strategic partnerships you need. Like the Associates level, you will have the opportunity to be more strategic in your partnerships because you will have access to vital , organized information about potential partners through our members directory.
Those considering bachelor level memberships may be interested in applying for a Master level membership where they can take the skills they have acquired and use them to produce educational products to upload to the BizLink Global library and online store. Master Level Memberships are for those interested in educating, hosting tele-seminars and participating in speaking tours, but for most BizLink Global members, Bachelor level will be the right place for you to continue to connect with people and grow the business of your dreams.

An ideal Associate level member is an entrepreneur or business owner that may be new to networking or perhaps just looking to expand their current face to face networking experience beyond the local level; connecting with a more diverse and global audience.
As an Associate level member, you can greatly benefit from the online presence you create within BizLink Global, where you will gain exposure to like-minded individuals in our global rolodex.
Associate level memberships are perfect for entrepreneurs that want to be more strategic about who they are networking and connecting with. At BizLink Global, you will have that opportunity because you gain access to all the information you need to connect with the best potential partners all in one place. These members will benefit greatly, not only in finding others, but by being found through our global directory.
How you decide to connect as a member of BizLink Global is up to you. BizLink Global is not a social media platform and does not limit or restrict its members in how they choose to connect or share information, with an exception in the CAN-SPAM Act. As an associate level member, you will have full access to our member directory and online store, where you can make connections and purchase educational materials to help propel your business.
You will also have access to view select “hot spot” topics, where Master level experts host discussions on their areas of expertise, however you will be limited to viewing these discussions only, as full participation is reserved for Bachelor and Master level members only.
You may be invited to view select sessions with our renowned “Coaching Couch” experts as an added benefit to this membership level. These experts are hand selected by BizLink Global founder, Patty Farmer, and serve the BizLink Global Community. Coaching Couch experts are contributing monthly authors to our blog and will have educational products uploaded to our store and library.
As an Associate level member, you will have limited access to our growing library where you can peruse educational titles and ratings of our member produced, proprietary content. Anyone wishing to fully experience the content must upgrade to a Bachelor level membership where they will gain unlimited, 24/7 access to all valuable library materials.
There are many ways to begin your experience as an Associate’s level member. As an example: some of our Associates find it useful to break their tasks into days. Mondays could be your day to search out new strategic partners. Once you have identified possible partners, Wednesday might be a great day to connect with them on social media. Friday then would might the best day to check out the community board and see what events might be coming to your area or hosted online.
Associate Level Members may benefit from learning how to follow up with new connections or may just want to learn how to increase their knowledge and expand their current skill sets to be more effective in networking online and offline as well.
Associates and Bachelor Level Memberships are different in their members ability to access educational materials and certain discussion topics. We feel this will accommodate two types of BizLink Global members; those that are new to networking or just want to connect globally (Associates) and those that understand education is key to their business growth and are looking to acquire new skill sets so they can better collaborate in exciting joint ventures with other BizLink Global Members (Bachelors)
