Oct 26, 2022

This post is sponsored by our partners Noumena. Join us at the newly re-opened Freelancers Hub for a free in-person BYOBusiness networking event on November 3rd! Co-hosted with Noumena, a business platform that serves independent workers, we'll be serving drinks & snacks, and hosting a "freelancer trivia" game to test your knowledge of all things self-employment. We'll also have time set aside for you to be able to do a lightning pitch of your business so we can all get to know each other and support each other's work. Click here to RSVP.

Who doesn’t like giveaways? Well, we’ve got some good news. Noumena is giving out $27,000 worth of cash prizes, FREE business consulting services, and Noumena tokens that you can redeem for your business!

What Is the Contest About?

Noumena is an app that was created to make the lives of freelance business owners and founders easier. Our mission is to connect you with the resources you need to truly scale your business. And now, we’re building the next step on that path.

This contest is all about a brand new feature we’re bringing to the Noumena freelancer platform: Noums. Noums are a new way for you to discover, create, share, earn, and get finance on the Noumena platform.

What Is a Noum?

Noums are a new way to do business, collaborate, and share your stories. You can use them to work on a project together with others, keep in touch with groups with like-minded interests, or even find the capital to supercharge your freelance business.

A Noum helps you to tell the foundational story of your business — where you came from and why you pursued this path. A Noum can connect you with others who can assist you at any point in your business journey. A Noum can share how you're progressing on your next big project — maybe you’re integrating an e-commerce store into your website or executing a digital marketing strategy.

Noums can be completely public, private, or kept secret with exclusive permissions. So, whatever your needs, the power is in your hands.

Noums can benefit you in many ways. You can:

  • Be found online more easily
  • Find new connections for your business
  • Build awareness around your brand
  • Get expert tips
  • Find financial resources and investment opportunities
  • Explore new opportunities and new ways to make money

We all struggle with certain tasks from time to time where guidance could have improved outcomes. With Noums, we’re trying to make it so you have fewer things to worry about.

How Can I Enter?

You can enter the competition now in a few simple steps. Here’s a quick synopsis:

  • Set up a Noumena account (if you haven’t already)
  • Create a Home Noum with your personal profile
  • Then create and enter your business into the competition with it’s own Noum

Setting up a Noumena Account

If you’re not already signed up for Noumena, you can join right now. You can then access your account through the Noumena web platform. Just a heads up — Noumena is exclusively available for founders and freelancers, so we will need to verify your self employed.

If you've already signed up to the Noumena platform, even better. Just log in and follow the next steps.

Create a Home Noum

For this contest, we’re asking you to create a Home Noum. The Home Noum will be your very own personal "getting to know me" page. It’s where other members can find you, connect with you, or learn more about your brand and business. Noumena members, partners, and investors can all visit your Home Noum to learn more about you and what you do.

To create your Home Noum, select "Noum Me" (it will appear on the right-hand side of your home page).

Bonus: if you complete your Home Noum within 24 hours, you’ll be rewarded with Noumena tokens, which you can use for things like coaching and premium content.

Create a Contest Noum to Enter Your Business

This can be a Noum detailing all that you have achieved and all that you envision for your business.  Your business plan, a current project you're working on, a slide deck for your company, or a video explaining your brand and ideas. It doesn’t just have to be your business either. Add your interests, CQ score, awards and vision.  Noums are versatile, and you can add your own unique messaging, images, links, and video along with any other information you provide.

Enter Your Noum Into the Competition

To be sure we find the Noum you want to enter in the competition be sure to include “Contest” in the Noum description.

Last step: Add your details here and our judges will be notified.
