How to Maximise your Award Win
What is the point of being told how great you are at what you do, only to keep it to yourself or with only your current customers? The Oscars are also a fantastic example of how to make the most fuss about your award, albeit on a much larger scale. As with any form of marketing, the list of possibilities is endless – there are so many ways to shout about your success – here are some that, in our experience, are worth considering;
- Gain exposure by sending a Press Release to your local or industry press. It could even be worth a feature pitch to your local radio station.
- Social Media, organic and paid – from engaging with the official awards account, through whichever platform works for you, to simply sharing your news with the widest audience possible, it’s worth a few minutes or pounds of anyone’s time and money to put your award-winning business in front of potentially thousands of eyes.
- Change the way you talk about your business – you an Award-Winning business now! Update your web copy, and maybe even your branding to reinforce to browsing customers the proven quality of what you do.
- Update your digital and physical presence – to reflect your award-winning status. It could be the deciding factor when your next customer chooses your business over a competitor. Your presence includes everything from your website to your email signature to the sign outside your premises.
