Shohola Business Owner & Pike Chamber Member Applies to Small Business Contest, Needs Your Votes
Tim Sohn, owner of Sohn Social Media Solutions, which provides social media education and marketing services to small businesses, is trying to win a small business grant from FedEx, and he needs your help.
The FedEx Small Business Grant Contest will award $50,000 total to 10 small business owners to encourage innovation. The grand prize winner will receive $25,000.
It is Sohn's dream to open a social media training center here in northeastern Pennsylvania, where he can hold classes for businesses and the public on social media platforms and strategies. Classes would be offered both on-site and online.
Sohn's initial application to the contest was accepted, and now he needs your help to get to the next step in the contest. You can vote for Sohn's entry every day until Feb. 23 at: http://smallbusinessgrant.fedex.com/Gallery/Detail/5d4832d3-f8ce-4b68-9e4b-720cf36941db/, and click on "Vote for This Business."
"This month I offered my first social media class to small business owners here in northeast Pennsylvania. I enjoyed helping them launch their Twitter accounts and providing them with do' s and don'ts when it comes to Twitter and small businesses," said Sohn. "I am looking forward to continuing to educate small businesses about the best ways to use social media."
After this round of the contest, the top 100 contestants will be selected, partially based on the number of votes online. Contest winners will be announced March 24.
"Thank you in advance for all of your support," said Sohn.
