The opportunity for small business owners to get their message out to the public in an online promotion is being offered by leading Australian accounting software company MYOB as part of its ‘Love your work’ campaign.
The new way for SMBs to promote their business online, particularly through social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter, is aptly named a Spruik.
To take up the offer from MYOB, you just take a photo containing a simple handwritten message to promote your business, tag it with the #spruik hashtag, and upload it to the loveyourwork website.
The prize includes a professionally made film that can be adapted into local cinema advertising, and the promotion is being run in support of MYOB’s position as Gold Partner of the Amex ‘Shop Small’ movement, which is running nationally throughout November.
The ‘Love your work’ #spruik promotion opened today (15 October) at 9am (AEDST) and ends at 5pm (AEDST) on 30 November.
MYOB CEO Tim Reed urges businesses to #spruik about their unique passion, product, service or story, and says there is no limit to the number of times businesses can enter and go on to share their #spruiks with customers and friends.
Reed says that with small businesses playing a huge role in driving the Australian economy, MYOB is committed to finding the biggest possible platform to say ‘Love your work’ to each and every local business, by hosting and sharing their #spruik messages across social media.
“Business owners tell us that spreading the word and finding new customers on a limited marketing budget is one of the biggest challenges they face. We hope this campaign enables them to do that, and have a bit of fun in the process.”
