Before starting on your business story, make sure you are officially registered to participate in the 2018 One Million Woman Link Up. There is no cost.
Each section of your business story will double as a stand alone piece for promotional purposes. You can write one or more paragraphs for each section. Please be as concise as possible.
I provided a few tips for each section to get your creative juices flowing. If you decide to submit a video or audio, the text will serve as your script.
I will post resources and invite others to do the same to help you craft the perfect business story that moves your audience.
Text Submission Instructions
Once your text, video and or audio is reviewed and approved, we will begin prepping to showcase it on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook, etc.
