ImpactHER is offering to create websites for women-led businesses in Africa. The non-profit organisation based in Lagos, Nigeria says that due to restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, online visibility and the ability to promote brands digitally have become crucial to the survival of many female-led businesses across the continent.
On these grounds, the organisation promises to offer free e-commerce websites to motivate women entrepreneurs and help promote the online presence of their businesses.
Women in need of these free websites can apply by visiting this link: http://bit.ly/IHFreeWebsite
The link leads to a Google Form where you will need to share your name, phone number, email, business details and more. ImpactHER says on the form that only qualified businesses will be contacted.
The organisation explains that the websites will enable more women-led businesses to leverage the digital marketplace to access new customers, build credibility, and increase sales. All websites will be equipped with search engine optimization to increase ranking, visibility and attract wider demography of customers.
While discussing the free websites and sharing the motivation for this initiative, the Founder of ImpactHER; Efe Ukala says: “This is an incredible opportunity for African women business owners to participate in the digital economy which is fast growing. This service ensures that African women-owned businesses are not left behind. It is also a great opportunity to showcase Made in Africa to the rest of the world. We are excited about the endless opportunities that this could unlock for African women business owners.”
ImpactHER is an impact-driven non-profit organization that empowers African women entrepreneurs by helping them build scalable businesses, access new markets, and bridge the gender business financing gap so as to help African women entrepreneurs realize their full economic potential. With a community of 47,000+ African female entrepreneurs, ImpactHER says it has trained and provided direct support to over 21,000 African women entrepreneurs in 54 African countries. Since November 2020, 289 women-led businesses in 27 African countries have benefited from ImpactHER’s free website initiative.
