Most businesses don’t win business awards because they don’t enter business awards in the first place! Perhaps they lack confidence or simply can’t be bothered.
We took the time to enter three relevant categories thus making it easier for the judges to choose Winning Tenders Limited as a Business Award finalist.
Some say that, as a finalist, you are already a winner – and being able to shout about being a finalist can, in many ways, be more rewarding than being a winner!
This may sound ironic but think about it for a minute…
The organisers will be encouraging finalists to shout from the rooftops so as to ensure hundreds of local businesses attend the Awards evening and so right now the volume across Devon will be getting turned up and finalists’ company names will be up in lights.
Those that didn’t make it through will be interested in who has been nominated in their category and probably checking them out on Google. The local papers, business magazines, business networks and other channels will be digging around to find out what’s what… so there are many chances of those finalists’ names being seen.
But once the Awards evening is over, the volume goes down, there will be mention of the winners and they will be able to add a logo to their website saying “WINNER 2018” – but then what’s next?
Energy may go in to ‘bigging up’ being a winner by the winner but how far will this news travel? How much energy will be used… the finalists have moved on already, happy to have been a finalist with no need to try and get more column inches.
Great to be a WINNER but possibly best to be happy with being a FINALIST…
Unless you’re the ENGLAND TEAM with the nation’s hopes and dreams hanging in the balance… then you’d best pull your finger out and WIN the biggest competition in the WORLD! 😉
Here are the runners and riders for Thursday’s Awards evening…
Have you got your ticket for the evening?
See you there…
OK, so if you got my LI message today, thank you for clicking through…
Thank you anyway!
I woke up with a desire to do some marketing after we lost last night to Croatia!
With the 373 Awards ceremony happening tonight I did some numbers…
I published this blog at 16:57 on 9th July
By 08:57 on 12th July 20 people had viewed the page
That’s 40 hours and there are 10 hours to go until the Awards ceremony begins
So my brain goes, if I want to do some marketing today… how about getting 80 more views over the next 10 hours … that would get Pareto in the mix and he’d be so proud 😉
Thank you for being 1 of the Pareto crew…
