SEED Dixie eMarketing Award

by Aubrey Terrill
September 22, 2011 – 2:20 pm

We are pleased to announce the creation of the SEED Dixie eMarketing Award!

The award will be given to two Washington County Businesses. A local businessperson has donated the funds to provide $5000 each to two local companies that propose an eMarketing campaign that will deploy a variety of methods to help them expand their customer base.

The SEED Dixie eMarketing Award aligns with the objective of SEED Dixie and USTAR, whose mission is to help create high paying jobs in Washington County. We expect this award to serve as that little push that a business needs to propel it to the next level. Tactics to be deployed may include: social marketing, web site development, SEO management, video, or others. Projects using a variety of these projects will be most successful.

The companies may be start up or existing enterprises. While the company does not need to be a technology business, the marketing methods proposed must use technology. Point preference will be given to companies with potential customers outside of Washington County.

Applicants must submit an application along with a cover letter explaining the company’s history, strategy and methods.

Applications MUST be received by October 25, 2011.
