#SmallBizBigImpact Giveaway – Enter to Win $250!

#SmallBizBigImpact Giveaway: November 20-26

Shop local season is upon us and to celebrate Business Impact NW is giving away a $250 gift card you can spend at your favorite small businesses! Starting today, on National Entrepreneurship Day, we invite you to visit your favorite regional business on our Pacific NWPuget Sound and Seattle maps, snap a picture and share it using the hashtag #smallbizbigimpact. These maps are filled with regional retailers, services and vendors. Visit one of these local businesses for a chance to win bitly.com/SmallBizMaps. Please be mindful of businesses that operate on an appointment basis. For businesses that are online, non-retail, or non-restaurant, you may share a screen grab from their website or take a picture of their “Small Business Big Impact” sticker in the window of their brick and mortar.


1. Follow @businessimpactnw on Instagram or Facebook
2. 2. Check out 1 of the small businesses on our map, snap a picture from your visit, tag the business & share your picture using the hashtag #smallbizbigimpact. Want to “visit” a business that isn’t a storefront? You don’t have to go – just tag them in a comment along with why you love their business and the hashtag #smallbizbigimpact instead!
3. Tag a friend in the comments. Increase your chances to win and earn more entries by visiting multiple businesses and tagging one friend per comment.

Good luck! Contest ends 11:59 p.m. on Monday 11/26.
