FGB VIP experts are a powerful group of women* establishing their voices within a growing community of career-minded individuals. Whether you’re an executive, HR professional, career coach or industry-specific expert, being an FGB VIP expert means sharing your advice where you feel your voice serves best.
VIP experts are expected to share their advice at least once weekly on the FGB Community Feed.
While this program requires very little time, it's impactful for our community of women hoping to receive advice from thought-leaders like you. We encourage all VIPs to spread the word about Fairygodboss by sharing their expert status and Fairygodboss content with their social networks regularly (tagging @fairygodboss, where applicable).
Where do I share my advice?
This advice should be in response to questions and posts on the Community Feed in the form of a comment. VIPs are encouraged to offer their expertise wherever they feel they add value, whether that’s on the general Community Feed, in a specific Community topic, or within a Fairygodboss group.
How can I stay up to date with the FGB Community each week?
VIPs are sent a newsletter each week with links to conversations from the Community Feed that could use their advice. These links are cataloged and posted within the invite-only VIPs @ FGB group. VIPs can also sign up for weekly calendar reminders to share their advice here.
We encourage VIPs to respond or post wherever they feel their voice would benefit most and not feel limited to the provided links.
How do I find posts that don’t already have a lot of expert advice?
In our weekly VIP email, there's a category called "Posts That Need More Love," which includes posts that only have a few comments when the email is sent out — and need more expert advice!
You can also find these posts by logging in and directly scrolling through the Community Feed, or by checking out some of our Fairygodboss groups, which have some posts that don't always get as many expert eyes.
To thank you for your support of the FGB Community, we’re excited to share exclusive VIP opportunities:
The VIPs @ FGB Group: A closed space for experts to connect, share and network with one another.
Articles: Share your expertise in an article featured on Fairygodboss.
Networking: Exclusive networking opportunities that connect experts with one another.
Social Partnerships: Social media collaboration opportunities on select @Fairygodboss platforms (please note that there are requirements to be eligible for this activation).
Fairygodboss Updates: As we grow and expand our community, VIPs are the first to know about our product releases and everything new at FGB.
Your Own Fairygodboss “Wings”: A purple wing on your VIP profile—so when you post or reply to the FGB Community, people will know you’re a verified expert.
What happens if I don’t share my advice one week?
Life happens, and we’re all busy people. Our main expectation is that experts share their advice regularly — so if you miss a week or two, share some more advice when you’re able to get back on the site!
How can I leave the FGB VIP program?
You can leave the FGB VIP program at any time by emailing [email protected].
