Plus one US citizen will win $1million in order to see their dream come true.

Big American Giveaway is a daily giveaway site, created by Mark Bowness, that enables businesses to reach new state-wide and national customers via the power of social media. It works in much the same way as Groupon, only without businesses having to reduce their prices by 50-75%. Brands will buy a day to promote their product and offer a Giveaway prize. To win the prize the public must increase the brand's social media profile by liking them on Facebook, following them on Twitter and talking about them all over the Web.

Members of the public will also be able to upload a video stating why they want to win the ultimate $1million prize - whether the goal is to launch a business, launch a charity, build a dream house, or fund a music dream.

For the first time in history the population of the U.S.A will decide which individual walks away with the $1million prize. The winner will not only win the million but will also gain the backing of the nation to see their dream come true.

"I want to hear from people who have a dream that they want to fulfil, but, at every turn they get people telling them to give up on their dream," Bowness said. "It is these dreams that will help to restore the economy of a nation and we are going to make sure that one of these dreams comes true."

Bowness has worked with a number of brands and businesses struggling to find their audience. With Big American Giveaway the audience is entering the competition to win a Giveaway because they are specifically interested in those products, becoming the brand's friend for life. In this way a database is built so that your brand can further engage with your new audience.

Big American Giveaway is a unique social media marketing platform and, as of right now, brands can select and purchase their giveaway days for launch on January 1, 2012. Days are purchased starting at $1 and increasing by $1 per day.
