Battle of the Brands

What is Battle of the Brands?

Battle of the Brands is a web-based bracket style competition where participants vote for their favorite brands over a 4 week period. The bracket is comprised of 64 Arkansas brands from all over the state. Participating brands are encouraged to engage their followers and friends on their website and social media to garner votes. Voters can also engage their own friends and followers to vote for their favorite brands. Each week, half of the brands are eliminated until the champion is crowned on March 31.

Why Battle of the Brands?

Everyone loves a little competition! Also, as most people know, March is a great time of year to be filling out brackets! The winning brand will receive the title of Emperor of Entrepreneurship from Arkansas SourceLink along with bragging rights. It's a great way to boost your brand's awareness in the state and potentially gain more customers.
