A small business in Kamloops specializing in jewelry design and repairs is a semi-finalist in the Small Business B.C. Awards.
The Bench is one of 10 businesses named in the category of Best Online Marketer.
The Bench started an online campaign in July to raise aware of its opening on Aug. 1 using Facebook and Twitter, according to Small Business B.C. As part of the campaign, they gave away a $5,000 diamond ring in a Facebook contest.
"The contest was very successful, drawing close to 700 submissions by the end of August and drawing hundreds of viewers to their website," Small Business B.C. said.
"The first few months for the new business have been a clear success due to the use of online marketing, and the shop is already profitable thanks to the support of their great customers."
