GlowRoad is a networking website to help every woman explore earning opportunities from home and help women entrepreneurs grow their business.
If you are looking for ways to earn from home, here you can find work-from-home jobs as well as business opportunities.
If you are a woman entrepreneur, you can use GlowRoad to build a reseller network, collect payments for sale made through any channel – be it Facebook, WhatsApp or events and exhibitions, get updates on upcoming stall events in your city and explore many more features.
If you are a male or a female and if you have an existing business, you can also sign-up with your business name. This is a paid service (monthly or annual subscription) to ensure serious sellers.
There are several ways in which you can use GlowRoad to find earning opportunities according to your interest. Please see the sub-sections below.
Start a home business with minimal to often zero investment, by becoming a reseller of products of your choice.
To explore reselling opportunities, go to the menu and click on Resellers Wanted. You will see posts from users and Premium Sellers looking for resellers for products in a wide category. If you are interested in a particular product, for e.g, sarees, bedsheets, organic food etc. type the relevant keyword in the search bar and search. If you want to see posts from a particular city, use the city filter.
Reply in comment to the posts that interest you or initiate a private conversation with the user or the Premium Seller. Just click the profile picture or name to see the full profile page and click CONNECT to send your message.
We aggregate and verify work-from-home as well as office based jobs and post them in the jobs section. You need not have a formal resume, but a brief description of why you fit the role is required.
You can filter jobs by type (work-from home/ part-time/ full time) and city.
Note: Most work-from-home jobs are not limited to a particular city. If you select a particular city, you will not be able to see any work-from jobs.
For full-time or part-time jobs use the filter by city option to view jobs available in your city.
In addition to applying for “Jobs” and responding to “Resellers wanted” posts, you can also post an update in the Seeking Work category mentioning the type of work that you are interested in. For example, you can say “looking for return gifts for resale” or “looking for data-entry job from home”. The more specific you are, the better response you can expect.
Men and Women who currently run or represent a business of any type should join as Premium Sellers. Premium subscription is a paid service and you can pick a monthly or an annual subscription. The advantages of being a Premium Seller are:
- Your profile gets listed in your business category, which makes it easy for potential customers and resellers to discover you.
- Your brand name, business description and product images appear on your profile.
- You receive more relevant notifications about various activities on GlowRoad.
GlowRoad is the one-stop place for entrepreneurs, mostly women. From networking to information, payments to online shop set up, you will find it all here in an easy to use format through your dashboard. Once you have joined as a Premium Seller, you can do the following:
If you are looking for women who could resell your products, Post an Update in the Resellers Wanted category.
