You may remember a few weeks ago we told you about a new online publishing solution called Cloudpage, where users can create a standalone page of content that can be easily generated and shared among social media platforms.

Well, now they are running a fantastic competition aimed at early stage and start-up businesses, and we have been asked to donate a prize as well as sit amongst the judging panel.

The competition is a great opportunity for start-ups to share their personal experiences and to gain publicity in the process. Cloudpage wants businesses to use their imaginations to tell their stories – the highs and lows; the happy, funny, or heart-wrenching moments of their journeys so far.

Those entering the competition must use Cloudpage as a blank canvas to design a page that best captures what they are about. Text, images, and video content can be used to help them create a unique and captivating page, and after it’s been designed, entrants must share it with the world in order to gain as much exposure as possible.

There are lots of great prizes in store for the winners, and we at M2 are pleased to sponsor three bespoke articles written for your business by our professionals.

Other prizes include a $1000 advertising budget, places at leading pitching events, a website or explainer video for your business, a hosted email package for up to five years, free office accommodation within a vibrant community, and much more.

Each submission will be presented to a panel of judges, including our very own marketing director Ben Hollom. Prizes will be awarded to the most engaging pages, as well as pages that have received the most interest across various web and social channels.

The submission deadline is December 31, and those wanting to enter should start creating their pages as soon as possible to increase their chances of winning.

So, if you’re part of a start-up and think you have a story worth sharing with the world click here for more information on the competition and to get started.

We can’t wait to see how each business chooses to tell their individual stories, and think the competition is a great opportunity for start-ups to win some brilliant prizes as well as gaining some much-needed publicity.
