There are many reasons to enter award competitions; prestige of being a winner, free publicity as in press releases, social media, email marketing and that much needed boost to your website.
Being a finalist or award winner not only reminds your past clients how great you are but also relays credibility to your prospects. Not to mention bragging rights when you go on a sales call.
Internally, your employees benefit from a sense of pride and accomplishment.
So even though the entry process can be demanding, viewing your projects on paper and in photos can be inspiring, especially when you compare them to other’s projects. Doing this may give you a new perspective that will help motivate your company to be better and grow.
So win or lose, take a chance, you and your company have so much to gain!
