Main Street Make Over Starts Here

By John Jantsch

Main Street I reported on this blog a few weeks ago that the department store chain Ikea was holding a Main Street Make Over contest for small businesses. To enter, a small business must send in a video nominating their business for a make over. The nice twist in this case is that the entries are to include reasons why your business AND your community deserve to win – if you win, a team of designers will descend upon your town with great ideas and furnishings for up to 10 businesses in your community.

I asked Duct Tape Marketing readers to submit photos showing the nifty use of Duct Tape in a business setting. The winning photo entrant gets a flip video camera and the runner-up a copy of Duct Tape Marketing.

And the runner-up!

The town that we will be doing the video on is Port Orchard, Washington.

It is the town that time forgot, the downtown is on a lovely inlet on
beautiful Puget Sound in the glorious state of Washington.
