The Local Business Awards are an ambitious project, we are more than awards we are the beginning of a movement. But what would winning mean to you and your organisation?
Awards recognise the hard work and achievements of you and your colleagues so winning one will be a boost to staff morale and improve motivation. It can also focus the mind on what’s great about your local business.
Winning a Local Business Awards won’t just be a very welcome lift to your team it also validates your hiring stature among future employees. Increased employee morale will also help attract and retain new recruits, by pitching yourself as the best you can attract the best talent in your local area and it can be the stimulus needed to push your business to the next level.
Winning a Local Business Award gives you visibility in your local community and online, they celebrate your achievements and are great PR opportunities. It’s fantastic to be recognised so it’s important to make sure that people know what your business has achieved. Winning a business award can open doors to getting contracts, finding new supply channels and breaking into new markets.
Business awards can often be an overlooked tool in your local business marketing plan. The Local Business Awards have an exciting marketing campaign planned including a book about local business which will feature some of our winners.
If you become a Local Business Award winner make sure you maximise PR exposure and update your marketing materials with the award winners logo.
When you win a Local Business Award you become part of a community, the class of ’21 will become the founding members of “my local” a membership money can’t buy.
The community will be a platform to share knowledge, network with fellow local business leaders, get access to exclusive events and exclusive discounts on business improvement tools.
We also want our community to define the future of local business and help shape resilient, thriving and sustainable local communities
