We are super excited to be collaborating with MAIA for Black Friday. More importantly we’re excited to help you promote your business! Platforms like WE Rule and MAIA exist because we believe that supporting female founders is not only about sharing their stories, but also helping people find their businesses and buy from them! Let’s do this!
The questions below will help you showcase you and your business in the best way possible. When you choose the ones you’d like to answer always think about the reader and what you’d like to emphasize the most.
1. GIVE US YOUR BEST ELEVATOR PITCH
In at least three or four sentences tell us what you do.
Sell the readers your business & make them want more. Think “elevator pitch” – What do you do? How is your business different? What kinds of products do you offer? What ignited the spark? Get to the point & present it in the best way possible.
You want them to click on your website to find out more, write you an email, use your service or purchase your product! This is your moment to catch their attention, tell them what it is you do, and create interest.
2. GIVE US ONE PRODUCT OR SERVICE YOU’D LIKE TO PROMOTE FOR BLACK FRIDAY
a) Write a short description (2-3 sentences max)
b) What is the link where people can buy it (your website, amazon etc - whatever works best)
c) Send over a high resolution photo
d) Do you have any discounts? What’s the process? Do you have a code?
3. OPEN ENDED INTERVIEW QUESTIONS
Please answer these in 3-4 sentences at least.
What is something you found MAIA to be useful for? What’s a good story you can tell the readers about an amazing person you met through it or a business you found etc? Why do you think it’s important a platform like this exist?
How do you support women-conscious consumerism and what good do you envision from it?
Additional Questions: Please select at least 3 (or more if you’d like) questions from the options offered below and write down at least 3-4 sentences for each question. Please choose questions that you feel the most passionate about answering.
