Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THREE RIVERS EDITION - BY TAMMY KEITH Se­nior Writer

SEARCY — Whether Searcy wins or not the Small Busi­ness Rev­o­lu­tion-Main Street con­test, res­i­dents in the city and sur­round­ing area can par­tic­i­pate March 27 in a free small-busi­ness sem­i­nar spon­sored by Deluxe.

Searcy will find out Tues­day whether it has made the top-five cities be­ing con­sid­ered to win $500,000 for six small busi­nesses and be fea­tured on the eight-part on­line and Hulu se­ries. The city made the top 20, then the top 10 out of 12,000 cities in an on­line con­test. The project is spon­sored by Deluxe, a na­tional mar­ket­ing com­pany.

“Re­gard­less of where we fin­ish from here on out, Deluxe … is com­ing back to Searcy on March 27 at Cone Chapel at Hard­ing, and they are do­ing a small­busi­ness work­shop,” said Amy Bur­ton, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of Main Street Searcy. “Any­body can sign up for that; there’s no charge for it. It doesn’t even have to be lim­ited to Searcy.”

Bur­ton said more de­tails about the day-long sem­i­nar and reg­is­tra­tion are avail­able at

mysearcy.org. She said top­ics will in­clude how to mar­ket and pro­mote a busi­ness and more.

Of the busi­nesses that sign up by Mon­day, one will be cho­sen to win $1,000 worth of mar­ket­ing prod­ucts and ser­vices from Deluxe.
