Customers. As a small business owner you not only rely on them, you can’t live without them. They’re the reason you hop out of bed every morning at the crack of dawn and work until well after the streetlights have come on. They mean so much sometimes words just aren’t enough to express your gratitude and appreciation—to really say “Thank You!”
As part of their new “Thank You America” campaign Manta, an online community dedicated to helping small businesses profit, connect and grow, wants to help you say Thank You to the friends and customers that have supported you all year.
From now until December 31, 2012, you can upload a video to share your heart-felt thank you for shoppers who buy local and help to support the neighborhood and community in which you live and work.
The entry that generates the most “views” on YouTube will receive a custom video produced just for your small business by a pro, a Dell UltraBook Laptop, a free Manta Premium Business Listing for one year, and will be featured as a “Small Business of the Week” on Manta.com.
Shoot your video, upload it to YouTube, and then share it with your friends, family, and most importantly—your customers. Not sure what to say? You can check out featured videos of other small businesses sharing their Thank You messages.
