Grants Empowering Women

Are you a female entrepreneur or a woman who runs a small business? According to The Women’s Economic Opportunities Index: Rankings by region, the country of Sweeden ranked highest (in specific attributes of the environment) for women employees and entrepreneurs in 113 economies.

MWBEzone.com and GrantWatch.com are proud to be playing an active role in women empowerment.

Another key factor identified on the study is that:

Many women face greater barriers than men in setting up businesses. Women’s enterprises are often particularly small and concentrated in the retail or services sectors. This calls for training programs in management to provide the skills needed to run a successful business.

We list grants dedicated to securing a future of opportunity and success for women in small business. Our grants for women also support the female leaders who are paying it forward by making a positive impact with other women or girls in their communities. Grants for women also fund education and training programs that provide girls with the knowledge, social skills and confidence necessary to grow as empowered business leaders.

Inform your friends, family, online networks and website visitors of your goal to gain support and exposure. As those closest to you show their support, the confidence will permeate throughout your extended network and their connections. Crowdfunding is a space that women are experiencing particularly great success in.

We are seeing massive growth of crowdfunding venues, including women-focused ones.

Small Screen, Big Impact

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are a small business with a blog, you should consider the needs of smartphone users. This is because they approach reading on the internet differently than large-screen users. For grants for improving your internet presence, check out MWBEzone.com under the technology category. You can also crowdfund for your needs on Uhelpfund.com.

Smartphone users tend to focus on the center of the screen while large-screen users begin reading from the top left. This may seem odd but I’m sure we’ve caught ourselves doing this on our smartphones.

There are a few things you could practice to engage a smartphone using audience.

1. Create short titles

A long title for a blog entry could take up the entire screen. This is off-putting. You want a title that is both attention-grabbing and easy to comprehend.

2. Short paragraph headers

This could make it easier for a reader to sift through your writing for information most relevant to them. Think of them as cliff notes for your article. They should summarize the point of each paragraph in a very succinct manner.

3. Put your best foot forward

Start your blog entry with your strongest point. This would make it more likely for the reader to continue with your story. Because your readers are on their phone, this usually means they are out of their house or away from their office. So, they want to get to the best parts of your writing early on.

4. Write in brief paragraphs

What appears to be a short paragraph of 5 sentences on a large screen may end up looking like a barrage of words on a smartphone. So, keep your paragraphs short. No more than 3-4 concise sentences.

5. Stay focused

Don’t fill your article with fluff. Remember, your readers are on-the-go. So, they just need the essentials. Fluff maybe an irrelevant quote or digressions.

Now you know how to write for an audience that reads on smartphones. A strong blog can go a long way for SEO. If you want to make improvements upon your internet presence, look at grants for technology on MWBEzone.com.
