Google AdWords team announced the "My Business Story," a program for small businesses to tell their stories through video, leading up to the second annual "Small Business Saturday," a day set aside to encourage communities to spend and support local businesses by shopping small, informs Marisa Currie, Product Marketing Manager.

Also, launched a new video tool to help small business owners create personalized, professional-quality videos about their business.

Marisa notes, "Once you've got your video crafted, business owners are invited to submit it to the contest for an opportunity to appear in the YouTube homepage ad on Friday, November 25th, which is viewed by an estimated 22 million people in the United States every day."

Adding she said, "Thirty-six small businesses will be featured in the ad and will receive an online ad campaign worth $5,000 from Google and American Express."

"All submissions will be viewed and judged by an independent panel of experts."

The deadline for the contest entry is Tuesday, November 15, but entry is not required to use the My Business Story editing tool.
