What are the EP Profiles?
The EP Profiles are a Showcase
who we are, what we do, why we do it.
It's where you can:
- Spread the word about your business
and/or home career.
- Stand up and be counted as an
- Involve your children in your
- Celebrate your [email protected] lifestyle
with the world!
- Enter the EP Showcase here to take a peek!
What are the goals of the EP Showcase?
The EP Showcase serves as an advertising medium to promote the
products and services of EPs, as
a resource for business and parenting media looking to profile
innovative entrepreneurs, and as inspiration for parents the
world over who are looking for viable, family-friendly work options.
Designed to reflect our values and priorities, the EP Showcase is intended to push us onward and together!
in our home career journey.
Who can purchase a page?
Parents who are self-employed
or working towards self-employment, and/or who are work-at-home
professionals. This includes all business owners in the SOHO
(Small Office Home Office) work force, as well as freelancers,
consultants and telecommuters.
NOTE: You do not need to be turning a profit to be an Entrepreneurial Parent! Many EPs work in their
home office to keep their professional careers afloat while engaging
in their primary work of raising young children. This can leave
little time for money-making activities. If you're an EP with happy children, rewarding work and barely-
break-even earnings, then you're a success in our book!
How much does it cost and what
will I get?
To purchase a full profile page
whether you have a web site or not we charge a nominal $40.00 fee to put your
page up. This includes:
- A picture your child has drawn
(highly preferable) and a photo of you OR a photo
of your home office.
- One business logo (provided
- All the information requested
in our application form.
- Up to three of your favorite
- Several links to your email
- Information on how to register
your new URL in search engines (on your own time).
What will my URL be?
What if I already have a web
site, why would I buy a page at the EP Site?
Most business web sites primarily
function as an electronic brochure of your products and services.
Such a site is a very important part of your overall (on and
off-line) marketing campaign, and we highly recommend that you
develop your own professional web site if you haven't done so
already. (If you're on a budget, you may want to ask EP Co-Founder deB Sechrist for her web
However, unlike the brochure/catalogue-type
sites every business owner should create, content and community
serve as a global resource
on a particular subject. With multiple pages of insight, advice
and information available to surfers the world over, content
sites build traffic by "word of mouth" promotion, and
therefore your profile page will receive a different kind of
exposure than a straight-forward business site would.
- The EP Showcase will serve as a resource for the business and
parenting media, who are always on the look-out to profile innovative
entrepreneurs and flexible, family-friendly work options.
- Each Profile Page offers a special EP Discount to
help you collect the names of prospects who are highly interested
in your products/services.
- Fellow EPs will use the profile pages to make contacts
and hopefully support each other's businesses by enlisting each
other's services when applicable.
- Your EP Profile Page
is your declaration that you are an Entrepreneurial Parent and proud to be one!
What if I don't want a profile
page and I don't have a web site. Can I still be an Entrepreneurial
