Vote for Artmuse.com to Win $250K!
UPDATE: I am so happy and grateful to report that we have exceeded our goal of 250 votes with 300+ votes. WOW! Thank you so much for your show of support with your votes for artmuse.com! Go USA Small Businesses! 🙂
Hello! I am Bonnie Glendinning, the Founder of artmuse.com. Today, together, we have an opportunity to support more artists and bring more art in our lives. How? All we need to do is cast our vote for artmuse.com and encourage others to vote too!
If we reach the minimum 250 votes by the end of June 2012 then the artmuse.com application will be reviewed by a panel of business experts and judged to win $250,000 in grant money from Mission Small Business | Chase and LivingSocial and sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Here’s what to do:
1. Sign in with your Facebook account here: Vote for Artmuse.com.
2. Search for artmuse.
3. Cast your vote & share your vote via Facebook, Twitter and email.
4. Ask others to vote.
Each artmuse.com purchase direct benefits the artist financially and creatively. I have personally funded artmuse.com from the start. And, on a shoe-string budget and out of my home office, Artmuse.com has earned its place in the market.
Yet, the #1 reason that a small business fails is due to being undercapitalized. As such, your vote will help artmuse.com to receive the capital to keep artmuse.com growing.
So, what would I do with the $250K?
Great question! First, I would hire individuals/contractors and actually get an office space that would double as a gallery. Once the gallery space is set, we’d (notice it’s changed to “we” from “I”) have live events, exhibits, and meetups. Then, we could also expand our programs to artist projects, community outreach, and more.
Your vote will be supporting independent artists, more art in your life, and an independent small business. A great combo!
As always, thank you for your support of artmuse.com.
