Business awards attract media attention and raise your profile. Here’s how to increase your chances of winning:
- Inquire about awards and nominations through your local chamber of commerce and trade groups.
- Complete applications for awards carefully. Profile your business, describe major challenges you have faced and overcome, explain your solutions.
- Submit your award entries well in advance of the deadline.
- When you win—and even when you are just nominated—write press releases about the awards and send them to local media.
