Sponsored by Supplier-Connection – An initiative of major US companies committed to spending more with US-based small businesses.
Greetings to all SBEs…
Last month The Supplier Spotlight contest went “social” as two companies leveraged their social media Klout by getting friends and customers to visit this blog and vote. The result? 10 times more site views and activity than our January contest.
Please make sure to read the entries and then come back to this poll and vote here:
Voting for The Supplier Spotlight Contest for March 2012 has ended. The Winner will be published by EOB March 28th!
This month, from 5-time entrant and October 2011 winner, MotivAction, we have a video submission to support the business value of their entry. And, for the first time ever, the appearance of a QR Code from 1st-time entrant, Executive Career Connections. We also thank RDZ Media Group for their 2nd contest entry, and ICON Interactive for their 1st entry.
March 2012 will prove to be a major milestone month for the Supplier-Connection initiative as we move past the tipping point. The four SPOTLIGHT companies should benefit greatly from the increased exposure provided by Supplier-Connection. And after Supplier Connection makes its upcoming “big splash”, I know this will get even bigger. And when it does you’ll want the exposure The Supplier Spotlight gives your SBE. Don’t let its potential pass you by. Submit an entry in next month’s contest.
Did you know in the eight months of running this contest we’ve received entries from only 21 companies? That’s barely 2% of registered SBEs! Did you know every day I post links to the content on this blog to all Social Media channels? Last month alone we touched over ¼ million business people. Man! I really do wish you were here.
And, please check out this month’s entries:
Entry #1: Create a Digital Business Strategy from ICON Interactive
Entry #2: Use a Versatile Recruitment Firm from Executive Career Connections
Entry #3: Grow Your Business by Giving Away Your Products/Services from RDZ Media Group
Entry #4: Incentives Drive Performance, Innovation & Efficiency from MotivAction
