Every small business dreams of getting the attention it thinks it deserves. But it usually does not happen for most. Getting your small business noticed is hard. Especially when it costs so much for marketing and advertising. So, it would make sense that the ultimate moment for a business to explode, is to get in front of the most eyes as possible. This means mainstream media. This means in front of millions of people from around the world. This means a big time ad during the biggest game of the year. Well Intuit is going to make this happen for one lucky small business. Small Business Big Game kicked off July 31 and had tens of thousands of small businesses entered for the chance to win more than $25 million in rewards and offers to help them succeed. Then the field was narrowed to just 20 that Intuit’s 8,000 employees around the globe voted on to determine the top four finalists. Now they have it down to the final four. The following four small businesses are all who remain in the competition to receive their very own 30-second television advertisement that will air during football’s biggest game on Feb. 2. The ultimate winner will be determined by a worldwide online vote between: Barley Labs, of Durham, N.C. - Produces all-natural dog treats in various flavors out of recycled barley from a local brewery. GoldieBlox, of Oakland, Calif. – Is a toy company inspiring girls to push limits and think outside the box. Locally Laid Egg Company, of Duluth, Minn. - Raises hens on pasture to produce healthier poultry and eggs. POOP – Natural Dairy Compost, of Nampa, Idaho - Produces natural and odorless composted dairy manure for lawns, gardens and flowerbeds. Now by just looking at the list of the finalists, it is interesting that poop is in the running. Natural manure that everyone wants for their garden. Hard to believe that a commercial for poop could be playing during breaks of the Seahawks and Broncos game. Anyways, here is more on the poop people, I mean, POOP. Everyone is a winner In addition to vying for the ultimate prize, all four businesses score big no matter what outcome. As finalists they will receive: Free, lifetime use of Intuit small business solutions, including Intuit QuickBooks, payroll and payments. Professionally produced advertising for their business. A meeting and business advice from entrepreneur and reality star Bill Rancic. An all-expense paid trip to New York for a big game viewing party held in their honor. Pretty cool stuff. I look forward to seeing who wins. Let’s go POOP. To learn more about this small business contest, you can read the official Intuit press release here.
