Communications firm launches contest for hard-working entrepreneurs
Today, July 22 marks the day that marketing company William Joseph Communications open applications until Sept. 8 for a new contest, The Raw Power Marketing Project, which gives grants of up to $25,000 to hard-working entrepreneurs in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
After 10 finalists are chosen at the end of September, social media votes will help to choose one winner from each province.
Ryan Townend, CEO of William Joseph, says that even on the best days, running your own business can be risky.
"So we want to reward hard-working entrepreneurs with a hand-up in their marketing," Townend says.
The amount the grants will be worth depend on how Lady Luck, the Kammer Motorsports car — #4 — does in NASCAR's The Fall Classic in Las Vegas, Nev. on Oct. 24. William Joseph has sponsored the racecar as part of the contest.
"Hard work, determination, and a little help from Lady Luck," states the official website for the project.
And once Lady Luck has shown its skills, says William Joseph, "Our crew will begin our collaboration with the winners to develop powerful strategic marketing campaigns that will give their businesses a leg up on their competition."
