HOW IT WORKS
WomeninBusiness.com.au is designed to be a low cost marketing tool for female independent business owners*.
We use your profile page to introduce you and your business to a new audience and send more visitors to your website, blog, online shop & social media accounts.
Our goal is to grow your audience and potential customer base. At this stage we don’t hold meetings and are not affiliated with any other organisation. Don’t let that stop you from connecting, meeting up and collaborating with other women who are already profiled though.
The profiles we publish are hand selected – not all applications are successful. Read through the information below and fill in the form at the bottom of this page to send your application.
We’ll be in touch within 48hrs if we think you’re a good fit for our particular audience (equally important for you – to reach people who have an interest in what you do).
We look forward to receiving your application!
* Including co-owned/family businesses, side businesses and bloggers who sell advertising/products or services.
