Earn £75 when you recommend us to a fellow retailer

The NFRN has launched a new rewards programme which encourages members to recruit fellow independent retailers.

So if you love everything your NFRN membership has to offer, why not spread the word?

Earn £75 for each retailer you recruit

Great way to earn more money

Help spread the word of the NFRN

Member 2 Member

Called Member 2 Member, the scheme will see payments of £75 made to existing NFRN members for each new member who is recruited and who stays in membership for at least three months.

Unveiling the initiative, National President Mike Mitchelson said: “Independent retailers are facing unprecedented challenges and change at the moment but NFRN membership provides access to a wide range of benefits, advice, support and information to enable them to make the best business decisions, improve their profitability and make and save money.”

As the voice of the independent retailer, the NFRN was recognised by the industry and government as a key and influential retail membership organisation, Mr Mitchelson said.

He added: “The NFRN is all about strength in numbers and the more members we have the better we can represent and support independent retailers.”

National Vice President Stuart Reddish added: “Who better is there to explain the benefits of being in membership than existing members who know what this provides and its true value.  We want our members to spread the news as to how belonging to the NFRN can boost the businesses of independent retailers, saving them time and making them money and recruit their friends and colleagues.”

Mr Reddish continued: “By doing so, members will strengthen the NFRN and receive financial recognition for their recruitment efforts.”
