As we venture into our 5th year in publication, It’s Her Brand Magazine is introducing a NEW business model that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen! This new business model is a GAME CHANGER in the world of publications and launched with our Jan|Feb|Mar 2022 issue. A new round of Advertising Grants will be awarded every quarter! Our current deadline date for Round 3 of our IHBM Advertising Grants is May 15, 2022!
Our new business model will feature our NEW Advertising Grant Program. Through this program, IHBM is now a 100% FREE Advertising Platform for female-led 1) small businesses, 2) nonprofits, and 3) community events in North Dakota!
Yes!!!! You read that right!!!! FREE!!!!! IHBM is now a 100% FREE Advertising Platform!!! WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??? That means that we NO LONGER sell advertisements in our publication! Instead, in collaboration with the North Dakota Women’s Business Center, IHBM now provides FREE advertising opportunities to female-led 1) small businesses, 2) nonprofits, and 3) community events in North Dakota and bordering cities!
Our new Advertising Grants are offered in two tiers. Tier 1 is a 1-year $3,000 Advertising Grant for small business and nonprofits, and Tier 2 is a 6-month $1,500 Advertising Grant for community events. Every quarter we will provide up to 8 small businesses, 4 nonprofits, and 2 community events with FREE ADVERTISING! That’s a total of $10,500 in FREE advertising with IHBM every quarter!
The intentions of these grants are to 1) help establish a new female-led small business start-up or nonprofit, 2) help re-establish an existing female-led small business or nonprofit that was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and/or 3) help promote an upcoming female-led community event. Every quarter, we will feature up to 8 small businesses, 4 nonprofits, and 2 community events!
A new round of Advertising Grants will be awarded every quarter! Our current deadline date for Round 3 of our IHBM Advertising Grants is May 15, 2022, so don’t delay! Get started today!

“Motivated by my own struggles and inspired by the determined and hopeful spirit of fellow female-led businesses, I wanted to find a unique and significantly meaningful way to lead by example and utilize my own resources to create opportunities that would contribute to the success and the impact that female-led small businesses, nonprofits, and community events are able to make throughout our state and beyond.” ~ Ashley Rae, IHBM Founder|Owner
