Crowdsourcing Campaign

Let’s Cross-Pollinate Our Female LinkedIn Connections

To catapult the growth of its One Million Woman Link Up and Main Street Marketing to Women Initiative, Smart Women Partner & Grow Rich is organizing a crowdsourcing campaign to build its dream marketing tribe.  LinkedIn’s business community (women & men) can take advantage of numerous complimentary limited participation options listed below that offer PR and advertising in exchange for forming a marketing alliance.

"Crowdsourcing is the practice of turning to a body of people to obtain needed knowledge, goods, or services."

CONNECT US WITH A WOMEN'S NETWORKING GROUP

Do you belong to a women’s networking group (in-person or virtual) whose members could benefit from a complimentary LinkedIn 101 for Women tele-seminar?  The one-hour tele-events will help them navigate LinkedIn’s ever-changing site, discover shortcuts, update their profiles, grow their female LinkedIn connections, provide answers to their personal questions and offer tips on how to incorporate collaboration into their daily activities on the professional network.

Serve as the go-between with the leader and the One Million Woman Link Up to get the group on our calendar for a free seminar and we will make you a sponsor of the event. As such, your business would be included in the joint press releases and in the custom PDF workbook given to participants.

Partner on kids Art/Essay contest: Why Black Lives Matter to Me

Barbara Lavi of ActNowPsychotherapy.com is piggybacking on the One Million Woman Link Up to launch an art/essay contest, Why Black Lives Matter To Me.

She is looking for bankers, politicians, educators, businesswomen, professional women, and more to get involved to quickly plan and roll out the contest as part of back to school. She will need judges, social media volunteers, prize donations for K-12 school-age children, website support, PR, and more. Entries would be accepted August 1 – September 30, 2020.

Her goal is to develop a project that could also be a fundraiser for Black Lives Matter and help children understand white privilege. The idea is to run an art/writing contest ($1) entry fee. To draw and write (1 paragraph or so) “Why Black Lives Matter to me.” All entries could be posted on a webpage, all participants would receive stickers or some sort of small prize. We would have some artists, educators as judges, and pick winners from each age category (to be determined). The winners would have their art/essay included in a paperback book that would be sold as a fundraiser for a nonprofit that works for racial justice and winners would get a free copy of the book.
