Q. How can I advertise or promote my business through the International Christian Mompreneur Network?
A. The ICM Network is designed to help Christian moms grow their businesses. The best way for a Christian mom with a small business or ministry to “advertise” here is to join the Sisterhood and take advantage of the opportunity to become a Featured Member. We’ll share your story on our blog, newsletter and social media channels! There are also sponsorship opportunity available for small businesses and large corporations who want to connect their brands with more than 10,000 women business owners with discretionary income and immense purchasing power. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q. Will you review my book, movie, product or service and write about it on the site?
A. We have a limited number of spaces in the editorial calendar to write about books, movies, products and services that add value to our readers. These topics are selected by our editors and writers because they are in alignment with the goals of the International Christian Mompreneur Network and they offer value to our members. To submit your idea for consideration, please email us at email@example.com.
Q. Can I submit a post for publication on your website?
A. The International Christian Mompreneur Network blog includes a small team of guest columnists and contributors. For more information, read about our Guest Posting Guidelines here.
Q. I’d love to become a mompreneur, but I just don’t know what kind of business to start. Can you help me decide?
A. I’m not a life purpose coach, but we do have several members who specialize in helping women determine their next steps in life and business. They can help you identify your strengths and passions, and figure out how they weave together into a business or ministry. We recommend Dr. Betsy Lavin of the Life Purpose Retreat and Coaching Center and Dixie Andrade of Envision Possibilities.
Q. I’m not really a mompreneur – I’m a grandmother! Can I still join the network?
A. Ummm…YES! We don’t discriminate based on the age or location of your children. (And to be perfectly honest, our members include women who don’t have children, and even a few men! All are welcome.)
Q. Do you allow direct sales consultants or multi-level marketing companies to join the network?
A. Yes. Most of the training courses and private coaching programs are not geared toward the direct sales business owner, but we welcome all Christian mompreneurs in the group! Please note that the goal of the ICM Network is to connect and support our members – it is not a culture of promotion. There are guidelines for how and when to share business announcements and offers.
Q. Can I pick your brain for a few minutes?
A. I love meeting other moms and hearing about their business goals and plans! Unfortunately, there are not enough hours in the day to sit at Panera and have a cup of coffee with every mom who asks to pick my brain. But, I do reserve time in my schedule every week for what I call “Get Acquainted” conversations. It’s an opportunity for me to learn about you and your business and answer a few questions.
