Last week my good friend Brad sent me along this story on BBC about a new partnership between Visa and Facebook, which starts out:
The company is giving $100 (£51) advertising credits to the first 20,000 US business start-ups that download its service via Facebook.
My first thought was “Where do I sign up?”, and now I know. This morning I was shown an ad on Facebook for The Visa Business Network. I added it to my account and within a minute I had a $100 credit code for Facebook Ads in my inbox. So just head to http://apps.facebook.com/visabusiness/sign_up and register today.
Here is more from the email they sent me:
