Bangalore, March, 7, 2014: Small and medium business and financial management solutions leader Intuit QuickBooks, has launched a Small Business Local Buzz contest in India as a part of a global campaign.
The campaign, which will grant 10 cash prizes of Rs 250,000 each to small businesses which they can use to grow their business, kicks off in India today, and will conclude on April 11, 2014.
During the course of the campaign, Intuit will be rewarding a total pool prize of 2.5million. Fans or followers can also vote to improve the chances of winning for their favourite businesses.
The winner will be selected based on voter preferences and the verdict of a select jury from Intuit.
In an Intuit Small Business Survey conducted last year, 87 % of small businesses said that their businesses are either struggling to survive, or surviving but not growing. More than 25 percent of small business owners surveyed said that if they had the money, they would spend it on marketing.
Says Nikhil Arora, Vice President and Managing Director of Intuit India:, “India has become a hub of small business innovation and we believe that it is important for them to market themselves accurately and within limited budgets. The Small Business Local Buzz program is focused on giving a helping hand to small businesses in India and boosting their confidence in order to go after success. I encourage all Indian small businesses to participate and win a chance to make it big.”
