Making A Mark On Main StreetFebruary 9, 2017
By Allison Checco, VP Account Services
This morning, our team helped Deluxe announce the five finalists in the company’s nationwide search for a remarkable small town to be featured in season two of its series “Small Business Revolution – Main Street.” The team gathered in NYC to kick things off with a Facebook Live session on the Small Business Revolution page starring Deluxe’s chief brand and communications officer, Amanda Brinkman, and program spokesperson Robert Herjavec of “Shark Tank.”
The finalist towns were chosen from nearly 14,000 nominations. Now it’s your turn to help decide the winner, which will receive a $500,000 revitalization for its small businesses and downtown area, including marketing support and business advice delivered by a team of small business marketing experts from Deluxe, along with consultation from Herjavec. The transformation will be captured in an eight-episode series that will stream on SmallBusinessRevolution.org and Hulu.
Our team had the opportunity to visit the finalists before the announcement and get to know the small-business owners and town leaders. The passion they exuded for their town was contagious and you could tell how proud residents were of of their community and its unique personality. Visit the finalist pages on SmallBusinessRevolution.org to learn more about each town and watch a mini-documentary, created by Flow Nonfiction.
