In 2023, Women Still Have Less Access to Capital Than Men

In 2023, Women Still Have Less Access to Capital Than Men

Donate to our station as we are working to build something great. We made history y’all! And even now access to capital for women is very challenging.
“The Greenwood Beat opens doors to truths, understandings, and better ways to healthy changes for our community, ” says Heather Nicole Nash. Nash will host a couple of shows on WFPG beginning this August. On August 2, 2023 @ 7:00 PM,  radio talk show The Referea will kick off followed by Greenwood Story’s  on August 28th.
 
According to Entrepreneur Magazine, “Women-owned businesses receive just 7 percent of venture capital investment money, which is highly disproportionate to their role in the economy. Additionally, loan approval rates for female entrepreneurs is 15 to 20 percent less than it is for men.”
“Women, especially women of color, not only earn less than men in the workforce but are also less likely to get access to capital for their businesses. Perhaps the most sobering statistic is that in all of 2018, women had a meager 2.2% share of the $130 billion given out in venture capital. And that was a $1 billion improvement over the prior year,” according to an article in Forbes. (2019)
The Greenwood Beat – WFPG has created a voice for Greenwood. WFPG is the first black, women-owned radio station in Oklahoma and is located in the Historic Greenwood District also known as “The Original Black Wall Street.”

Create your Business Marketing Plan

Create your Business Marketing Plan

A marketing plan is a vital component of any successful business. It helps to identify target markets, set goals, and outline strategies to achieve those goals. Here are some key steps to consider when creating a business marketing plan:

  1. Define your target market: Who are your ideal customers? What are their needs, challenges, and pain points? Understanding your target market will help you create more effective marketing messages and campaigns.
  2. Set SMART goals: Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound goals will help keep your marketing efforts focused and on track. Examples of SMART goals could be to increase website traffic by 25% in the next six months or to generate 50 new leads per month through social media.
  3. Develop a positioning statement: A positioning statement describes how you want your brand to be perceived by your target market. It should be clear, concise, and differentiate you from your competitors.
  4. Choose your marketing channels: Which marketing channels will be most effective for reaching your target market? Consider channels such as social media, email marketing, content marketing, SEO, and PPC advertising.
  5. Create a budget: Determine how much money you can allocate to marketing and allocate it to the various channels you have chosen.
  6. Develop your content strategy: Develop a content strategy that aligns with your goals, target market, and marketing channels. This could include blog posts, social media content, videos, infographics, and more.
  7. Measure and adjust: Set up tracking and analytics to monitor your marketing efforts and adjust your strategy accordingly. Regularly review your results and make changes as needed to ensure you are meeting your goals.

Remember, a marketing plan is not a one-time event. It should be regularly reviewed and adjusted as needed to ensure your business stays on track and continues to grow.
