Vernon Company Employee Wins 'Small Business Saturday' Contest

Winner of Custom Canvas Print for Small Business Saturday Announced

Custom Canvas Print WinnerCosta Mesa, CA: Website and software provider, Customer Focus, gave distributors and suppliers the chance to win a 36” x 36” custom canvas print in honor of Small Business Saturday on November 29, 2014. The winner was Danielle Rogers from The Vernon Company.

Small Business Saturday encourages consumers to purchase goods and services from local and small businesses on the last Saturday of November. The day was officially recognized by the Capitol in 2011, rallying support from a large number of government officials, including the president.

Small businesses comprise over 75% of Customer Focus’ customer database, and so in honor of the small business rally movement, they encouraged anyone in the industry to post their favorite inspirational quote on the Customer Focus Facebook page. Each quote was made into a graphic by the Customer Focus team, and re-posted to Facebook. At the end of the contest, the quote graphic with the most ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ received a 36” x 36” canvas for their office featuring their favorite quote.

Parris Wells, Director of Social Media commented: “We love small businesses. We wanted to show these dedicated and persistent business owners that we appreciate them. But more importantly, we wanted to know how they remain so inspired all the time!”

The contest closed on Saturday, November 29th, 2014 (Small Business Saturday), and the winner was announced the following Monday - Danielle Rogers from The Vernon Company. Her winning design and quote is pictured opposite.
