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.
Entitled: I always carry my duct tape when carrying out my first marketing consultation meeting as it helps me get learn the most about my client! Motto: Shut up, listen up, speak up – in that order.
The town that we will be doing the video on is Port Orchard, Washington.
And we most certainly appreciate Ikea for their contribution to the town.
It is the town that time forgot, the downtown is on a lovely inlet on
beautiful Puget Sound in the glorious state of Washington.
