Twitter will award $1 million in advertising credits to Chase small-business banking clients, holders of the Ink for Chase small-business credit cards, and credit-card processing Chase Paymentech users, according to Steve O'Halloran, the director of public relations for Chase. Details of the giveaway will be released in early fall, says O'Halloran in an email to Entrepreneur.com.

Chase and Twitter also will team up to host workshops across the U.S. The first, "Effective Social Media Strategies for Small Business," is tomorrow in New York City. While the event is exclusively for Chase small-business customers and is already closed, you can follow along on Twitter under the hashtag "#ChaseSocialBiz" between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. Eastern.

Chase also created a Twitter handle, @ChaseSmallBiz, for videos and infographics, with best practices on how to engage customers online and increase sales using mobile applications.
