Small businesses here in Merchant Advance’s home province of British Columbia work tirelessly to build recognition and trust within their communities, and it goes without saying that they should be lauded for those efforts! Whether your business is a cutting-edge innovator, a community partner, an online marketing wizard, a valuable mentor for young workers, or even simply a local icon, you can enter into the Small Business BC Awards from now until November 30th.
The Awards are organized by Small Business BC, and are free to enter. You can even nominate yourself! All nominees receive valuable business education and support throughout the competition. Winners receive $1,500 cash, a one-year All-Access Pass to Small Business BC education and experts, business mentorship from the award sponsor and the honour of being named a top BC small business.
Entering into contests such as these may also prove to be a valuable source of exposure for your small business. Test your ability to rally your customers and community behind your campaign for recognition, create buzz and get people voting! Contests are also a prime chance to leverage the ad hoc power of social media, building conversations while creating marketing potential and sharing your business’ campaign online.
Of course, we would be remiss not to mention that Merchant Advance has been nominated this year in the category of Best Company! Just like all our clients, we’re a small business too, and we are dedicated to helping further the goals of our industry brethren across Canada. Don’t forget to vote, and spread the word on social media! We’d be glad to have your support.
