Small business owners are being urged to vent their biggest concerns on Facebook and get rewarded with a potential $5000 bonus.
International serviced office and virtual office provider Servcorp is running a social media campaign to encourage small business owners to share their challenges and create an online discourse and community to help overcome these hurdles.
“This is really about recognising the achievements of small business owners, many of which are still hurting with rising costs of business,” said Marcus Moufarrige, Sales and Marketing Director at Servcorp.
Servcorp’s ‘My Biggest Challenge’ campaign runs from 20 June to 11 July. Interested parties , need to visit and ‘Like’ Servcorp’s Facebook page and describe your biggest challenge as a small business owner with a photo.
Five finalists will be shortlisted and posted on Servcorp’s Facebook pageon July 12 and the winner will be announced on on the 18 July.
The competition is open to customers and other businesses in Australia and New Zealand.
The campaign, which will be purely focused on social media channels, also provides the company with the opportunity to build its online community.
“Most of our customers are highly mobile, work virtually, and are avid users of social media and mobile applications to carry out their business activities. As such, it makes sense that we look to invest more in building our online community so we can better support the needs of our members,” said Moufarrige.
Meanwhile, in response to the airline chaos caused by the volcanic ash cloud Servcorp is offering a 50 per centdiscount off its Virtual Office package which provides stranded or in transit travellers with the business infrastructure and support they need to keep on working.
Travellers can temporarily base their business from any of the Servcorp’s capital city locations and take up a Virtual Office package which provides users with a local business address, access to meeting rooms, a local phone number and receptionist.
The special offer is valid at any Servcorp location around Australia and is available until Friday 24 June, 5pm via www.servcorp.com.au.
