Should I apply for an award?

There are many awards that you business can apply or get nominated for such as Business Growth Award South Wales but why should your business apply?

3 reasons we think your businesss should apply are….

 

Business Focus

The whole process of applying for an awards allows you to focus on where your business is and where its going. Processes and procedures need to be sharper because as soon as you apply your business will being judged even for the shortlisting process.

This process can usually be more valuable than an award it self, leading to a more effective and efficient business.

Marketing

Any awards looks for  sponsorship so through applying the organisation behind the awards should be taking about and marketing applicants we do this about the shortlists. This is quite obvious the more the awards are talked about the happier the sponsors are and the more people will apply for the awards giving the awards a bigger profile. If all the applicants like, comment and share the posts then it helps.

Motivation and the Future

If your business employs staff it can be a full time job motivating your team. The process of applying for an award and bringing the team together to achieve one goal can be motivating in its self, but then using the awards night win or lose to celebrate your achievement and show your staff appreciation for the work they do can be a great motivator. And if you don’t win it may motivate the team to work harder for the following year.

Awards also can boost your profile so as your business grows and you collect more awards you will attract a high level of candidates for any position you are looking to fill and pushing your business forward even more.

Awards should aways by current promoting your business off old awards is not a good look unless you have been finalist and or winner for a few years in a row so pedigree, after a few years of winning sponsorship is a good way to move forward showing you are now a leader in what you do.
