AWeber Launches “Small Business, Big Impact Award” Content

For many entrepreneurs, owning a small business isn’t just about making money but also serving their community. In that spirit, the e-mail marketing SaaS company AWeber is introducing a new contest for businesses and non-profits that are making a positive impact. Dubbed the “Small Business, Big Impact Award,” the contest will see one organization win a $20,000 prize. Incidentally this $20K content coincides with AWeber’s 20th anniversary.

To enter AWeber’s Small Business, Big Impact Award contest, businesses will be asked to answer the question, “How are you making a big impact, and how would you use $20,000 to make an even bigger impact in the lives of your customers and community?” This task can be completed via a video of up to 90 seconds in length or in a 300-word essay. Eligibility for the contest is limited to small businesses and nonprofits who are based in the United States and have no more than 50 employees. For more information (including all of the rules and disclosures), you can visit the Small Business, Big Impact site.

Entries for the contest will be accepted starting today (October 15th, 2018) and will conclude January 4th, 2019. From there, a panel of judges will select 20 finalists, which will then be revealed to for the public to vote on. This round of voting will run from January 21st, 2019 through February 8th, 2019. Finally, the grand prize winner will be revealed in a live broadcast on February 21st, 2019.

In a press release announcing the content, AWeber founder and CEO Tom Kulzer said,  “Ever since I started AWeber 20 years ago, our main mission has been to help small businesses and nonprofits connect people in remarkable ways. This award is a way for us to not only celebrate an important milestone in our company’s history, but more importantly to reward the accomplishments of the incredible businesses and charities that we serve and to help them make an even bigger impact in the world.”

Whether they’re nonprofits or for-profit companies, there’s no question that there are now several small businesses that make it part of their missions to give back to their communities as well as assist the less fortunate among us. With this in mind AWeber’s Small Business, Big Impact Award sounds like the perfect way to celebrate 20 years and will surely draw many applicants. Hopefully this initial contest will prove to be a win for all involved and inspire AWeber to make the Small Business, Big Impact Award an annual tradition.
