WEBifi Community Platform

Aim of the platform

  • inform  - provide online communities a means to effectively communicate with members / supporters / sponsors
  • involve - provide a means where members / supporters / sponsors can get involved, provide feedback and participate in communities
  • grow - provide online communities a means to generate an income by means of sponsors, online event bookings, donations and managing membership fees

How we do it?  

  • We provide the tools for the community to publish information on:
    • Who they are
    • What the do
    • What they need
    • Guarantee sponsors exposure when they get involved.
  • Each site runs a business directory in which companies who are supporters or sponsors of the community can list a company profile and even display a promotion
  • Communities generate an income from online entries for events, membership invoicing and earn commision for company listings and sales of products listed in the community shop.
  • Each community site is supported with a Facebook profile, Twitter profile and a weekly newsletter (which is updated automatically with headlines from the site)
  • Sites are updated on the web and need no special training or software.
