There’s a story behind every Loudoun business, and we want to help you tell yours. Every Tuesday (and weekends during the summer and fall), we feature a different company or resource partner in the business community for a day-long takeover of our @LoudounBiz Instagram account.

What does aΒ takeover look like?

This is an opportunity to post directly to our account and tell your story. Each business is a little bit different, so each takeover looks a little bit different, but they generally include these elements:

  1. A behind-the-scenes look at your business
  2. A day in the life of your team
  3. Different products and services you provide
  4. Any upcoming or ongoing events

Here are some successful examples:

M80 Recording Studio
Winslow the Puppy
Georges Mill Farm


Benefits and next steps:

Participating in a takeover is totally free and exposes you to thousands of other Loudoun businesses and consumers. If you want your Loudoun-based business to participate, here are the next steps:

  1. Email Brian TinsmanΒ ASAP for a link to the online schedule. We schedule weeks and months in advance!
  2. Before your takeover, you’ll get a list of our social media policies and some suggestions for content.
  3. Promote your takeover on social media and we’ll do the same on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
  4. On the day of the takeover,Β you’ll access the account and post directly to @LoudounBiz.
