THE SIMPLE BREAKDOWN OF THE PROCESS + BENEFITS

  1. Write your answers to the interview questions located on the bottom of this page in a word document and send it back to me. In one sitting it should only take 10-20 minutes to complete, though most people spend a few days to work on it and a week to complete it. If you have a particular date you would like the post to go up, let us know ASAP. We are usually booked about a month in advance, but are willing to accommodate and work with you to get your desired date.
  2. Once all the materials—your interview and 5-10 pictures (along with the optional video)—are turned in, your interview blog post will be blasted across our social media channels to our followers to gain traction to your site and raise awareness about your business. We have an engaged audience who love to support other women in business. You can add yourself to our private Facebook Networking Group to gain access to our network. Make sure to introduce yourself and ask the group a thought-provoking question to start networking!

These are averages, results vary – some posts do better on one social media channel than another. We have gotten up to 2,000 shares on one post alone!
