Like many small business owners, you probably have many responsibilities to juggle: customers, employees, products, space, marketing, finances, paperwork and much more. If you could improve your productivity in these or other areas through a business makeover, where would you focus your effort and why?
By sharing your story through “BizClips: The Small Business Productivity Makeover Video Contest” you could win a prize of $2,500 in business products and services. The Contest is sponsored by SCORE and Brother International, one of the premier providers of print and communications products and services. The Contest celebrates SCORE’s 50 years of helping more than ten million small businesses learn how to start a business, grow and achieve their business goals through free business assistance and education.
The Contest is easy to enter. Make a 30-60 second video, telling your story, describing your need for a business makeover, and how SCORE could help in addressing your need. You can also tell how SCORE helped your small business in the past. The video can be as simple or as fancy as you’d like, as long as it meets the minimum requirements. Here are some tips on how to make a video.
Enter the Contest by uploading your video at www.bizclips.score.org by midnight, Eastern time, on February 25, 2014.
Voting is easy. All videos that meet the minimum requirements will be eligible for online voting from April 1-30, 2014. After you vote in the video contest, ask your friends, family, customers and supporters to vote for you, too. Ask them to also help you spread the word, so you can make it to the final round.
All entrants will gain significant and free national media exposure. The top 25 finalists, based on votes and judges’ criteria, will win a Brother P-Touch prize. Also, the panel of small business experts will select one grand prize winner to receive a business makeover with $2,500 of products and services from Brother. The grand prize winner will also be flown to Washington, D.C. in September 2014 for a special national announcement and awards ceremony at the 2014 SCORE Awards Gala. The grand prize winner will have a professional business makeover video created to be shown at the Gala and promoted by SCORE. The winner can also use the video for its own promotion.
“This is a chance for small businesses to showcase themselves in front of a national audience. For the winning business, we’ll be delighted to make their business better, stronger and more productive through the makeover,” said Ken Yancey, SCORE CEO.
