Just got word from Yahoo that they along with Sir Richard Branson have annouced a winner to Yahoo's Search Marketing "Think Big" contest. If you are not familar with Yahoo's contest it was started about in April to allow small business owners to submit their ideas for thinking big for an award of 10 million free ads on the Yahoo! network. The offical judge is Sir Richard Branson, Chairman and founder of the Virgin Group of companies, who will choose one lucky one small business owner he believes truly �thinks big.�

The winner of the contest is Phoenix-based StairCycle(TM) Innovations who's product combines the benefits of stair-step exercise systems and a recreational bicycle that you can use indoors and out. It's a pretty neat cycle, and looks like a very good choice, you can check it out here.

Now not only will the winner receive 10 million free ad impressions across the Yahoo Search Marketing network the �Think Big� winner will be operating business as usual out of a glass office cubicle constructed in Times Square. How cool is that to do for one day. At the same time Yahoo will be running the winner�s ads (10 million free impressions!) on its network. So if you run across some nifty ads for a bike that can walk up stairs then your seeing the company who won this incredible contest.

For more information read the Yahoo press release or visit Times Square today to see the man in the glass box.
