According to the Center for Women's Business Research, nearly 10.4 million firms are owned by women generating $1.9 trillion in sales. Yet, only 3% of all women-owned firms have revenues of $1 million or more compared with 6% of men-owned firms.
U.S. Census data show that 46% of women-owned businesses are tiny enterprises with revenue of less than $10,000 per year, compared with 30% of men-owned businesses.
It's time for a change ladies! There is a way to improve the dismal economic stats. It's called cross marketing.
At its essence, cross marketing is nothing more than joining forces with compatible companies so that everyone involved can more effectively capitalize on each others' existing client base.
Join forces with women around the globe to declare your independence from expensive and fruitless marketing strategies by taking part in the $1 Million Cross Marketing Challenge.
You will receive a directory of businesswomen interested in cross marketing, ideas and tips on how to cross market, virtual networking opportunities on a private network, inclusion in live tele-networking events, tools to cross market, information on programs offered by WomenPartner International, and your profile included on the WomenPartner.com blog.
What's the cost to participate? $0!
The price of participation is forming a strategic alliance news alliance with WomenPartner International to help us spread the word about the $1 Million Cross Marketing Challenge.
What percent do you want to be a part of? The 3% with a $1 million in sales or the 46% making less than $10,000?
If you want to be a part of the top 3%, then register to participate in the 1 Million Cross Marketing Challenge.
