Sponsor Post: American Express OPEN's Big Break for Small Business Contest
Everybody knows that having a company Facebook page is vital if you want to take your small business into the digital age. And although you may have created your page, you barely have time to create a post during business hours, let alone come up with creative ways to engage your customers or grow your brand. Imagining the possibilities, but realizing your lack of time is a constantly on your mind. You need some help.
That's why you could be the perfect contestant to vie for a "Big Break for Small Business." American Express OPEN has teamed up with Facebook to launch a new contest in which five winners can receive $20,000 and an all-expense paid trip to Facebook for a one-on-one consultation and social media makeover. How's that for a jumpstart?
To enter, head to OPEN's Facebook page from now through May 20th. The idea is to impress the panel of judges hailing from American Express, Facebook, and two other well known experts in social media. The judges will choose 10 semifinalists based on who is committed, passionate, and can convey how a Facebook page makeover will help boost their business.
If you make it into the top 10, you'll need to turn to your community of supporters to try to snag the most votes for your promotional video. The top five voted videos will earn the grand prize, and head to Palo Alto, California to Facebook's headquarters.
