Why Is It Good For Your Business To Enter Business Awards?
Whether you win a business award or you get to finalist position, it’s the perfect excuse to promote and celebrate your business. When it comes to business awards it’s not all about the winning, it’s the taking part that counts too. We think that every business should enter business awards and this is why;
It Improves Your Credibility
When customers are choosing a business to work with credibility is one of the top factors. Winning a business award will often help you hugely, but coming in as a finalist also looks good on the ‘Company CV’. Don’t be shy, shout about the fact that you won or that you were a finalist in an award. Tell people on Facebook and Twitter, write a blog about it and shout about it at networking events. Winning an award or bring a finalist is a great thing to be noticed for.
It Raises Your Profile
You’ll often find that if you are a finalist or the winner of a business award you will be invited to an awards ceremony and / or a corporate dinner where the winners and runners up will be presented with an award. These corporate events can often offer great networking opportunities and be a perfect way of boosting your morale too. It has been proven many times that attending an event of this type can create excellent business opportunities that can lead to successful relationships.
You Get an Award
There isn’t much that looks better to a brand new client or potential client coming into your office than an award on the shelf or in the reception. A glass award looks prestigious, elegant and sophisticated; it’s a great conversation starter too, as the person will ask how you won it and what you won it for.
