Do you have an award winning business?
Awards can be a fantastic way of raising the profile of your business and spreading the word to potential customers. There are a huge amount of awards available – local, national and international – industry or business type dependent. The type and cost of entry also varies greatly. There are many free to enter awards – as well as some with expensive entry fees, with no guarantee of success.
Of course to a certain extent you get what you pay for and some of the most expensive awards to enter are some of the most high profile and influential. However there are also many free to enter awards which require only someone’s time to complete an entry form. From as little as 200 words you could be in with a chance of success.
The key is finding the right awards for you to enter, that are in line with your strategic objectives and that you have a reasonable chance of winning, and drafting a compelling, award winning entry. To us it’s a bit like job hunting – you search for the perfect role that suits your skills and capabilities and then write a targeted, specific application detailing exactly why you meet their requirements. Not a one size fits all policy!
Once you have entered an award than the capacity for raising awareness begins. You can share the news on your social media channels – spreading the word of the awards should other businesses be interested in entering or supporting your entry. You might be surprised how much goodwill is out there on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms. If you are lucky enough to get selected as a finalist then send a press release to your local and industry media to let them know – as well as sharing the news on social media. All the brand mentions contribute to SEO and raise awareness of your brand. If there is an awards night then social media can help you share the excitement of the event – even if you don’t end up being a winner. Every stage of the process – right up to you actually winning an award is an opportunity to market your business.
We are delighted to have written successful awards entries for a variety of different brands and businesses. Each is unique and our role is to research and define the right awards for them, find out what makes them special and submit that compelling entry. From as little as £49 it could a fantastic next step for your business – a true achievement to be proud of. We will also be honest if we don’t think you have a chance of winning and won’t waste your money on pointless, generic entries. Why not give us a call on 01252 843461 to see if you could be a winner?
