AmEx Facebook Contest Offers Small Businesses a Social Boost

A new contest sponsored by OPEN, American Express’s small business division, is offering five small businesses a $20,000 check $2,500 in Facebook ad credits and a trip to the social networking giant’s Palo Alto headquarters to learn more about social marketing.

The “Big Break for Small Businesses” contest is open to the owners of U.S.-based small businesses with $10 million in annual revenue or less.

Business owners can enter the contest from the OPEN Facebook page between now and May 20, at which point a panel of judges including Guy Kawasaki and Federated Media’s John Battelle, will begin poring through the entries. Ten finalists will receive $2,500 in Facebook ad credits and then be whittled down to five winners.

The judges will pick the winners based on the level of “commitment to his/her own business and growth” as well as the degree to which a ramped-up Facebook marketing effort would aid in that growth.

Small businesses interested in entering can check out the details and then head over to the OPEN Facebook page to submit their entry.
