Davis Is One Of The Top Contenders Remaining In San Jose’s Competition That Ends On August 24.
BOSTON, MA: August 4, 2021 -- The largest online referral network for small businesses, Alignable.com is announcing the local finalists in its North American search for business leaders who’ve gone above and beyond to help peers and their communities with their economic recovery.
Today, Alignable’s network is honoring Tracey Lee Davis of ZingPop Social Media as one of the finalists in San Jose’s Main Street Mentors Search. Davis is also a contender for one of two national Main Street Mentor prizes: lifetime Premium Alignable memberships, valued at nearly $11,000 each.
Nearly 50,000 small business owners voted and provided testimonials for their local business superstars. This is the first year Alignable has hosted the Main Street contest and the outpouring of gratitude for the finalists has been remarkable -- at peak times, 50 votes landed every minute. The final round of voting starts today. Winners will be announced by early September.
Inspiring Everyone To Band Together
“Thousands of local recoveries across North America are happening at vastly different rates,” said Eric Groves, Alignable’s Co-Founder and CEO. “But there’s one common denominator in communities reaping rewards now: business mentors like our contest superstars are inspiring their peers to come together and move the small business economy forward.”
“San Jose’s business community means a great deal to me and I’m delighted I’ve been able to help other businesses recover. In San Jose, we’re all here for each other, despite our obstacles,” said Davis. “I am thrilled to be a finalist and very grateful for the support I’ve received. And while we all want to win, it’s most important for us to keep fighting for our communities until they rebound fully, no matter how long that takes.”
Local contest winners will receive Main Street Mentor badges on their Alignable profiles, recognizing their contributions. In past years, the awareness generated through contests like this one has helped drive additional connections, prospects, and new business for many winners.
Reinforcing Our Superstars’ Efforts
“While recognizing business leaders driving prosperity is always important, it’s vital to our current recovery that we reinforce our finalists’ grassroots efforts now,” said Alignable’s Co-Founder and President Venkat Krishnamurthy. “Several didn’t realize how much their peers appreciated what they’ve done for their communities, until they saw so many testimonials emerge from the contest, encouraging them to keep up the good work.”
