The contest is free to enter, but it is a judged contest so you’ll want to take time and give it your all for the best shot at winning! Any legally operating US-based small business (which must be operational and posts revenue) is eligible to enter, with a limit of one entry per person.

In order to enter you’ll have to fill out the form and answer some questions. The form includes basic information about you and your business and three big questions that will determine the winner:

  • Tell us about your business. How is your business successful? When did you start your business? How have you grown since launch?
  • What inspired you to start your business?
  • What are your current marketing tactics and why do you deserve a marketing makeover

Each of your responses is limited to a maximum of 600 characters – which is only about 100 words – so you’ll have to stuff all your energy, enthusiasm and brilliance in a small package! Your entry will be judged by our very own Ramon Ray, along with Jonah Berger (author and Associate Professor of Marketing at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania), Anita Campbell (founder and CEO of Small Business Trends), and Ron Cates (Director of Digital Marketing Education at Constant Contact).

All submissions will be reviewed and judged on the following criteria:

  1. Business potential for expansion and growth (30%)
  2. The business’ need for a makeover (30%)
  3. The business’ overall energy, enthusiasm, creativity and passion (40%)

So does your business have what it takes to win a cool $25,000 marketing prize? Then head on over and enter the contest! Entries must be received by June 30, and winners will be selected and notified by email on or around August 1, 2014.
