Your business can benefit hugely from winning a business award. Even just being shortlisted as an area or national finalist creates added value for your business and its brand.
The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards are currently open for entries, and if you haven’t yet entered, here are some good reasons why you should:
Winning or being a finalist for a credible and highly regarded business award enhances your business’ reputation amongst stakeholders including suppliers, customers and the community. You can display your award status as a badge on your emails and website.
It’s a huge boost to the morale of your employees if you’re shortlisted for, or win, a recognised business award. It brings a sense of pride and a renewed commitment to the company. It’s also a great way to attract strong new talent.
It’s a great news story. You can tell the local, and industry, media about your achievement to get coverage in newspapers and the broadcast media. If you win a national award you could benefit from national press coverage too.
We all know how crucial having fresh, engaging and newsworthy content on our social media channels is. Entering business awards gives you a ready-made social media campaign, from announcing that you’re applying, through to the award ceremonies. Remember to include photos where you can, and use the official awards hashtag to reach a wider audience - FSB has over 55,000 followers on Twitter alone.
Award ceremonies provide a fantastic opportunity to create new face-to-face business contacts, both regionally and nationally. Networking at a prestigious event like this is really enjoyable as well as useful.
The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards are free to enter, unlike most other business awards. This is because FSB exists to help small businesses and the self-employed achieve their ambitions. We want as many entries as possible across all areas and all award categories. Because it’s free to enter as many award categories as you choose it could mean a big return on investment for you.
The FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards are now open for entries so please make sure that you get your entries in on time. Click here to learn more. There are 12 award categories and businesses can enter multiple categories.
The closing dates for entries vary by area:
For the North East and for Scotland, the closing date for entries is Friday 10 November 2017;
For Northern Ireland, East Midlands, Wales, South West, and East of England, the closing date for entries is Friday 1 December 2017; and
For Yorkshire and the Humber, South East, West Midlands, North West and London, the closing date for entries is Friday 12 January 2018.
This gives you access to a range of services to help you find new customers, build profile and deliver high quality integrated marketing campaigns.
