Biz Girls needs your help! We need a catching slogan that embodies the creativity and confidence of our Biz Girls campers. Can you think of a great slogan for us?
Write your entry in the comments section for this blog post - or on our Facebook page. You must also LIKE our Facebook page to be eligible to win.
We'll chose the winning slogan at the end of the month so get those creative juices flowing! The winner will get a copy of 'Venture Capital for Dummies', co-authored by our Executive Director, Peter Adams.
We are looking forward to reading your slogan ideas!.
Once you've decided on your product, we'll start on the fun process of thinking of a cool name for your business. The best names are memorable and have a 'personality' that relate to you or your product. Next we'll develop this name into a website name (domain name) which brings us to the start of our internet based market research. We'll show you how to search and find a unique name for your website.
Our market research continues as we check out similar products that could compete with our Biz Girls business. We'll be looking at what the competitors are doing to sell their products, what their prices are, and look for ways we can be better or different.
By the end of this day we'll be well on the way to launching a Biz Girls business!
