Facebook and Amex Team Up For Small Business Contest
Small business owners looking to gain foot in the social world, listen to this, a new partnership between American Express and Facebook has resulted in a large sweepstakes contest. From today up until May 20th, small business owners in the United States can enter in the Facebook Big Break for Small Business.
The grand prize will include winning $20,000 cash, free one-on-one consulting about their current use of Facebook and win a two-day advertising and marketing boot camp at Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. If this prize didn’t already sound appealing, note that the training will include best practices for using Facebook, pages, ads, and social plugins. It’s easy to enter the contest, small business owners need to simply visit American Express’ web page on Facebook and answer a brief questionnaire about their company.
At that point American Express will select ten finalists and then Facebook fans will vote for the top five contestants. This contest comes just a year after Small Business Saturday from the duo. If you’re a business owner, sign up, and if you’re not, stay tuned to vote for the final contestants! Let us know what you think about this contest in the comments section!
