There are awards everywhere.
Across publications, platforms, industries and sectors, awards are available to be won by individuals and organisations. From local to Internationa awards, you can enter and hopefully win for just about anything. However, what are the benefits of winning awards?
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
- Do awards provide any advantages to my business?
- How can my business maximise their benefits?
- Are they just a waste of time, money, and energy?
No matter what the size of your business, you can enter a business award. However, finding and deciding which awards to enter could be challenging. Some awards may have monetary prizes or other benefits such as mentoring, access or even long term investment. However, winning is not the only benefit.
One of the key benefits of entering awards is free marketing and PR – Business awards can be overlooked as a positive marketing tool. Sometimes even being shortlisted can help you build brand awareness. It is the perfect excuse to promote your business to new customers. You can maximise this opportunities in many ways including using this as a marketing and PR opportunity to update your marketing materials with any award logos
Awards and accolades – One of the key issues facing small businesses today, is the lack of time available to find and enter awards. At FP Comms, we have put together a list of business awards, along with deadline dates and links for entry, which we will release each month.
