Move over “Homemakeover” here comes the “Great 2010 Accounting Makeover”. BookKeeping Express , a professional bookeeping service provider for small businesses has announced a makeover contests where the winner gets a 12 month service package from the company.
What the companies have to do is submit a video, photo or a few sentences about the accounting problems they are facing and these will be posted on Facebook. The company that gets the most votes, wins the Makeover contest and will then get a complete overhauling of their book keeping.
Some key dates for those who are considering submitting – All entries must be mailed by noon ET on December 17, 2010 and the winner will be announced on Monday, December 20, 2010. All entries must be e-mailed by noon ET on December 17, 2010. But if you want to increase your chances of winning, you should submit early. The sooner you submit the more the chances of you getting more votes. Pick up the phone and ask your friends, family and business associates to vote for you!
I thought this was a cool way to promote the company, but what I found most interesting was that accounting folks are using the internet and new internet fads (in this case Facebook) to market their services. That is definitely the right way to go!
