VentureMom.com was founded by Holly Hurd to help moms start their own businesses. By profiling what other moms have done, the site provides inspiration and ideas. Most of the women covered on the site have become entrepreneurs with little to no startup capital, no formal business plan and often no babysitter.
Each week in her free weekly e-letter, Holly profiles a different VentureMom and outlines how they got started. Each story works to show moms around the country that they too can find a venture that will add to their family’s income and their personal fulfillment.
The site works in three ways. First, it guides women to an idea. Then VentureMom.com provides a web presence, promotion, distribution and marketing by listing the products, services and coupon codes in the VentureMom ecommerce marketplace. Thirdly, content marketing provides exposure for these businesses to a large affluent community.
