“My Business Story” Video Contest Offers Big YouTube Exposure


My Small Business StoryGoogle and American Express have teamed up in a contest called My Business Story.  It encourages small businesses to tell their stories through video before the second annual “Small Business Saturday,” which is November 26, 2011.  Small Business Saturday is a day set aside to encourage communities to spend and support local businesses by shopping small.

Thirty-six winners of the “My Business Story” contest will receive a $5000 Adwords campaign and will have their video featured on the homepage of YouTube on “Small Business Saturday,” November 25th.

Google research has shown that companies who use video can expect better customer engagement and retention.  They have launched a new video tool so that small business owners can create personalized, professional-quality videos about their business.

While business owners are communicating their excitement about this program on message boards, a few would have liked a list of videography partners in their area who could assist them with the video creation.  As convenient as that may seem, it would take away the “free” opportunity to market your business for the cost of creativity and time.

Thirty-six small businesses will be featured in the ad and will receive an online ad campaign worth $5,000 from Google and American Express. All submissions will be viewed and judged by an independent panel of experts. The deadline for the contest entry is Tuesday, November 15, but entry is not required to use the My Business Story editing tool.

I strongly recommend that you create a video and upload and use their editing tools.  The exposure to all videos created and submitted will definitely mean a quick opportunity to promote your business and receive thousands of visitors to your website.

Only a Few Small Businesses Have Told Their Stories. This is Your Opportunity!

As of Monday, November 7, 2011, only one business in both Kansas and Missouri is listed. This is the opportunity of a lifetime for your business because you will gain more exposure by listing your business now and timing the market.

Visit here to check out the gallery of businesses at YouTube’s “My Business Story.”

The deadline to submit a video is November 15. But the my business story tools will still be available for you after this date.

Please contact me if you need help setting up YouTube and I can virtually walk you through the setup or I can do it all for you. I can also help promote your business through social media.
