Ecommerce Economic Defense Initiative Extends “Win a New Store” Contest

The Ecommerce Economic Defense Initiative (EEDI) has extended the entry period for its currently-running contest, in which entrants can win a complete online store.

Rochester, MI – Brand Labs, the founding member of the Ecommerce Economic Defense Initiative, announced today that they would be extending the entry period for the EEDI’s first nationwide competition.

The contest was originally set to end in August, but in response to requests from potential entrants, the deadline to enter has been moved to November 16, 2012.

“People really wanted time to polish up their entries,” explained Dane Downer, Brand Labs’ VP.  “We just wanted to make sure that everyone had a chance to give it their best shot.”

Businesses can enter the contest by creating a video or writing an essay. Two winners will be chosen and announced in December. The winners will each receive over $30,000 in ecommerce services from the EEDI’s participating partners.

“It’s a great opportunity,” continued Downer.  “With the prizes we’re giving away, anyone could build a whole new online business and run it for a year without spending a penny on design or development.”

The grand prizes include services from Brand Labs, Volusion, PowerReviews Expresss, Grasshopper, Olark and AutoResponderMax.
