SEATTLE (PRWEB) August 31, 2006
The Scrapbiz.com “Win Your Biz” contest will not rival The Apprentice in terms of publicity and prize money, but at least the winner gets to run her own business, not one of Donald Trump’s.
Sponsored by the scrapbook industry’s leader in small business education and start-up support and in honor of the start of their Fifth year in business, “Win Your Biz” is open to Americans and Canadians who join Scrapbiz.com between September 1 and September 30. The winner will receive a “Business Start-up Prize Package” worth more than $1000. The package includes:
- A copy of the ScrapBiz Business Start-Up Guide (value, $99).
- One Year of free access to the ScrapBiz Member Support Program (value, up to $120)
- A $400 Credit at a ScrapBiz Distributor Partner (value, $400).
- A logo and website created by Marcie Hunter Designs (value, $300).
- One free year of website hosting (value, $84).
In addition, one runner up will receive a rebate of her membership fees (book and member support program) for the first year.
“The contest allows a new member to essentially win back her investment in joining ScrapBiz, and well as receive the tools needed to start her own business,” says ScrapBiz founder Kim Guymon. “The winner can set up any business model she’d like – from online store to a party consultant to custom scrapbook artist.”
To participate, new members must electronically submit a single- or double-page 8 ½ x 11 or 12 x 12 layout with the theme “ScrapBiz Dreams.” The judges are interested in learning what motivates new members to start their own business. (The pages can be traditionally or digitally scrapped, and must include at least one relevant photo.)
In addition, participants should submit a brief essay – on a separate page – of the “Top 5 Reasons for Starting My Own ScrapBiz.” Entrants must also include a name, address, phone number, and email address with the entry.
“Since business doesn’t have to be all serious, and we’re a fun-loving bunch of business owners, feel free to make us laugh,” says Guymon. “We will definitely consider your submission’s ‘fun factor’. Besides, nobody’s ever given away a business package in this industry, so we’d like to set a light-hearted tone for the future.”
