When I read in the Sacramento Business Journal recently about the Social Madness contest, I was intrigued. It is a social media contest, which allows participating businesses to show off their social media skills. Since TBS already had a Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn account, I qualified, along with all the other contest rules. I decided why not? I should participate! A little exposure never hurt any business, right?
Just last week, I learned that I was officially qualified and had been entered into the contest. The voting process starts at the local level (Sacramento for me) and then moves on to the national level. I figured at the very least I’d get some well deserved publicity for my business.
The contest is currently in the initial local voting phase right now, which runs from June 1st through June 19th. TBS is in the 1-99 employees category. My business is one person. So it almost seems unfair to be placed in the same category along with the likes of the Sacramento Zoo, Sacramento Magazine, and a multiple attorney law firm. After the first day of voting, I had three votes and was tied with multiple others for 24th place. What a nice surprise to see that after two days of voting I moved up to find myself in 12th place. Wow! Thank you to everyone who voted for TBS. Please keep the votes coming and show your support for the truly small business of Thomson Business Services.
