Is your business a winner?

By Anita Jaynes on 12 January, 2016

Smart Thinking Consultancy founder Maggie Robinson discusses why you need to consider entering the Enterprising Wiltshire Awards this year.

Have you entered the Enterprising Wiltshire Awards 2016? As a sales and marketing consultant with over 20 years’ experience, mostly with FTSE 100 companies, I recommend it. This kind of recognition of your company’s excellence is good for your staff and good for business.

Success breeds success. The thrill of winning is hard to top. One company I worked with won a prestigious award, even beating the market leader in their category. The effect of winning the award – on our team spirit and motivation within the company – was remarkable. In addition it was a springboard to better brand awareness and increased sales, and even led to further awards.

Although entering awards can be time-consuming, it can reap real benefits. Having the awards logo on your website and collateral raises your company profile and standing among your competitors. Awards also:

  • Provide independent endorsement from the judges, themselves respected business people
  • Provide excellent PR and marketing opportunities, giving you the chance to tell the story of your company and what led to your success
  • Generate sales leads
  • Attract high-calibre potential employees to your business, and
  • Make your staff feel great about the company they work in.

Remember: just being shortlisted is a success and can bring many of the benefits mentioned above. The closing date for Enterprising Wiltshire Awards entries is Sunday 31st January 2016; so make a start on yours today.
