Best Business Awards #free #business #advertising
Awards are one of the most powerful and cost-effective marketing tools and winning a prestigious Best Business Award will help your organisation to stand out from the crowd, send a positive message to your existing customers and attract new business.
The Best Business Awards are one of the UKs highest profile awards and winning this accolade will say a lot about the quality of your organisation and the strength of your management team. Due to its high profile, the Awards attract a wide range of entries from across all sectors from large international PLCs and public sector organisations to dynamic and innovative SMEs. But the winners all have one thing in common they are truly excellent at what they do and have proved this by winning a Best Business Award.
We want to help you raise the profile of your organisation and enhance its reputation by promoting the great work you are doing while at the same time providing you with a platform to celebrate your success.
Listen to the Awards Intelligence CEO Mark Llewellyn-Slade explaining the benefits of winning business awards to BBC TV World News
Winning a Best Business Award has provided us with a platform to raise our profile via the media. Since winning we have secured press coverage in key national and regional publications regarding the great work we are doing and we have attracted students to the college that may not have otherwise heard about us. I would recommend the Best Business Awards to any dynamic organisation that wants to prove to stakeholders that it is delivering.

If you re a young business without much marketing spend, then entering awards can be a cost-effective way of generating positive marketing and PR, because you re thrown into the spotlight. It also offers a seal of approval. Potential customers can look at that and think I m happy to do business with this company because they have that recognition.
Adam Goodyer, co-founder of Concert Live
Experience has shown that an award gives massive credence to our business, particularly when talking to new customers and vendors that have not dealt directly with us in the past. With existing partners, it reinforces the fact they have made the right choice to work with us. If I equated the benefits of winning an award to other forms of channel marketing, we would probably have to spend tens of thousands of pounds to get similar levels of impact.

The Best Business Awards are open to private and public sector organisations of all sizes. There are four rounds each year with quarterly deadlines being the last working day of January, April, July and October and winners for each round hold their title for twelve months. Therefore you can enter when the time is right for you, as many times as you wish during the course of the year.
A popular feature of the BBAs is that unlike most awards we don’t hold an awards dinner at which winners are announced. So you won’t feel obliged to take a table for ten if shortlisted along with all the associated costs such as hotel accommodation and travel. Instead, winners are advised by email about six weeks after each quarterly deadline. We then offer winners benefit packages to help you make the most of your awards success and to make your budget work as hard as possible.
