What price can you place on an awards win?
Titles, trophies and honours bring great benefits to a business. Success boosts enquiries, enhances brand recognition and exposure, acts as a valuable recruitment and staff retention tool and generates great publicity.
An award is one of the best recommendations as a credible third party endorsement of your business; it’s a seal of approval and sign of quality.
Winning silverware may be priceless in terms of reputation and marketing but it can also provide a tangible return too.
For example, media coverage about an award win led to £200,000 of business for one of our clients.
Sometimes, it’s not the winning that counts either. Many businesses find the actual process of entering an award gives them a new perspective about their strengths and weaknesses.
Content generated for an award entry can be repurposed for a business’s own website, social media and marketing.
Awards support is all part of our virtual press office services for more than 50 businesses and organisations across the South. We’ve helped many to success in local, regional, national, trade, business and sector-specific awards.
Our managing director Ron Wain said: “As well as a celebration of success, awards can energise a business and propel it onto a whole new level.
“If you’re not entering, your competitors may be. There is everything to gain.”
Many of our clients are past winners and passionate sponsors of the prestigious Dorset Business Awards.
Entering the Dorset Business Awards is a must, of course, but there are also many others which we can advise upon too.
