Who We Are

What is Business Building Women?

Business Building Women is a community of female entrepreneurs who support one another. We encourage and promote female driven businesses while providing fellow boss babes with the tools they need for success.

Who runs Business Building Women?

Business Building Women is ran by Kandi Newcomer and Hannah Sanderbrink. We are successful business owners who, despite being in completely different industries, found that the women around us struggled with similar issues. They struggled with balancing family and work, being hyper critical of themselves, lacking confidence, not knowing how to sell themselves, feeling like their only identities were as a wife or mother and feeling unsupported in their dreams.

We tossed around the idea of creating a business that’s sole purpose was to encourage, support and promote women in business. The idea of creating a community for women with no boundaries spoke to us. It wouldn’t matter whether you were young or old, married or single, in direct sales or a traditional small business, or what industry your business was in. Regardless of our differences, at our core, we all need the same thing: support.

 

Being Featured

What types of businesses do you feature?

We feature ALL types of businesses. Our hearts’ desire is to have no limitations of boundaries placed on women. So, we feature those in direct sales, traditional small businesses, businesses that sell products and those that offer services.

What does it cost to be featured?

There is absolutely no charge to be featured on Business Building Women. We do give you the option of providing a giveaway to help promote a product/service but that is never required. We also ask for participation in our quarterly scavenger hunt by providing one product for free (again this is not required and will in no way affect your feature).

When do you run features?

We run two features a week, on Tuesday and Friday. We begin promoting features the day before by sharing sneak peeks of the interview. This is a system that we have down to a science and it works very well with the Facebook algorithms.

What are the requirements to be featured?

Traditional Small Business Requirements:

  1. Have owned your business for at least 6 months.
  2. Have active social media accounts (Facebook specifically).
  3. Actively post on your accounts (at least several times a week).
  4. Be responsive to questions on your social media accounts.
  5. Have a positive attitude and desire to help others.

Direct Sales Business Requirements:

  1. Have been with your company for one year.
  2. Have advanced in rank at least 3 times.
  3. Lead a team of at least 15 women.
  4. Have active social media accounts (Facebook specifically).
  5. Be responsive to questions on your social media accounts.
  6. Have a positive attitude and desire to help others.

How can I be featured?

To be featured:

  1. Make sure you meet the requirements.
  2. Fill our our application to be featured.
  3. Go follow our Facebook page.
  4. Start engaging on our Facebook page. We are not an advertising company, we are a community of female entrepreneurs. Become a part of our community!

Do I have to have a large following to be featured?

The simple answer to this is no. We could care less about your numbers! This isn’t about us or growing our following, it’s about you! It makes no difference to us if you have 10,000 followers or 100.

So if numbers don’t matter to us, what does? Consistency, hard work and dedication. When we check out your Facebook page before approving an application (which we always do), we are not looking for the size of your following. We are looking to see if you post consistently, engage with your following, always respond to questions and provide valuable content to your network.

Can I offer a giveaway to promote my business?

Absolutely! We love utilizing giveaways to spread awareness of a business. While we love giveaways we NEVER require them to be featured. Our heart for giveaways is to promote YOU, not us! So we will never include liking our page as part of the giveaway requirements.

If you have a product/service that you would like to giveaway we will create a mock-up of the post for your approval. We will work with you to make sure it accomplishes everything you are wanting it to, while adhering to Facebook policies.

Can I get additional advertising for my products/services?

Absolutely! We love providing as much exposure for you as we possibly can. If you would like additional advertising, you can send us 2 of the product/service you would like featured and we will incorporate into your feature week:

  1. A Live of us discussing/using it on our business page as well as at least one of our personal pages (where we have large followings).
  2. Posts and video using it in our Instagram stories and feed (both business and personal).

We do not charge anything for this service. However, because this is not fee based we will only be honest about our impressions. We will not agree to ad copies or scripts.
