If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I am a strong advocate of supporting women owned businesses. And why wouldn’t I be? Women have the power to send a strong message that we are in this together. Sister, I’ve got your back!
With many excellent providers of the products and services we need, why not be involved in an initiative that give women a leg up? That’s why I’m excited to tell you about a new app that helps you and your customers do just that.
Introducing OYA App
OYA is the newest 2-in-1 networking app made for sharing photos and videos that help consumers find women owned businesses near where they live. When we purchase from businesses in our area, it stimulates our local economy and promotes diversity in the options we have at our doorsteps. Plus, it enables hard-working women like you to support your family and other households as your business expands and you hire more employees.
OYA helps consumers find local businesses that register on the app. The company’s mission is to help close the gender gap by providing innovative tools to connect the 11.6 million companies led by badass women with conscious consumers.
The big picture goal? To promote financial equality and success on a global scale.
Customers earn coins when they engage with business through the app and invite friends to join, and then they can redeem coins for promotions offered by businesses.
Opening Doors for Women Owned Businesses
As a business owner, you have access to a targeted audience that actively wants to support women-owned business with their dollars and with their engagement. You can offer promos through your business that earn you coins which you can use to purchase in-app advertisements. Advertisement options include photo, video, and keyword ads, sponsored and featured ads, direct mailing, and customized campaigns.
There is already a buzz around the OYA app. So far, 3,500 women have registered their businesses. Jena Malone (of The Hunger Games) has leant her voice and support to promote the app, and OYA is backed by a powerful board of directors. The OYA app is available free from the iTunes App Store. It can literally drive business right to your door.
Download it today – for FREE
The free membership option for business owners lists your business profile in the appropriate category search directory with a link to your website or portfolio. Paid memberships (starting at $9.99 a month) give you even more exposure with promotional videos and the ability to offer exclusive discounts to customers who find you on the app. Top tier membership provides you with consumer insights so you can be sure you’re targeting the right market at the right time.
Remember, it’s free to join the app, so please spread the word to your friends, family, and co-workers—including the men in your life who want to support women and help close the gender gap. The download link is here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/oya-opening-doors/id1417733446
Most importantly, don’t forget to register your business on the OYA app so you can reap the benefits. And why am I so passionate about this? Because 4 out of 10 businesses are women and we women entrepreneurs create the majority of employment. We are good for business.
