Facebook and AmEx Big Break for Small Business Contest!

Filed under: events — admin @ 4:50 pm

Facebook Big Break for Small Business

We’ve praised American Express OPEN before for their groundbreaking efforts to promote small businesses. Last year, the AmEx team partnered with social networking powerhouse Facebook to create the independent version of Black Friday. The joint venture known as Small Business Saturday will likely become a yearly fixture similar to its corporate counterpart. With such a successful track record, it comes as no surprise to learn that these two teamed up again to assist non-corporate companies across the nation.

We strongly recommend that all qualified entrepreneurs enter the Facebook Big Break for Small Business Contest! This exciting enterprise kicks off on May 20th, 2011! To enter the content, visit the Small Business Saturday Facebook page and fill out the required questionnaire. Additionally, submit 3 company photos to complete the submission process. Consumers have the ability to share this information with their favorite brick and mortar businesses via Facebook as well. Two lucky grand prize winners will receive $20,000 cash to fuel their advertising budgets, plus an all expenses paid trip the Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, CA. Another 10 runners up get $2,500 each in credits for Facebook display advertising. Once the grand prize winners arrive at their destination, they’ll go through an intense 2 day crash course in online marketing. The training sessions will focus on utilizing various social media platforms, plug-ins, consumer engagement, and website revitalization. These exclusive sit-ins will be featured on the AmEx Facebook page and microsite, so everyone wins in a way.

Social media allows business owners and their employees to connect with consumers in numerous ways. While there are no official rules to the online marketing game, many struggle with finding a way to reach out to their customers in an appropriate manner. Established brands don’t really have this problem because they don’t have to work hard in order to create awareness. Still, cultivating long standing relationships involves a lot more than mere flash in the plan “likes”. Marketing trends currently favor quantity over quality, but this strategy may prove ineffective in the long run. The key to mastering these channels is fostering repeat visits as opposed to a singular interaction. Naturally, no one earns a devoted following overnight. Slow and steady wins this race, which is why some people go to the trouble of hiring social media coordinators. For those without the financial means to hire a professional, these webinars should provide invaluable insight into this uniquely 21st century issue.
