Let’s face it, in today’s hectic schedule, it’s hard to find time to do the important things like social media posting and blog writing. So, when you see an advert for your ‘industry awards’, what do you do? Is it really worth spending time putting together an awesome application? Will anybody really take any notice of them?
It’s a tricky one and I think it really depends on personal choice. They definitely have their place in most industries. It great to get recognition, especially when you’re just starting out in business. Awards are a great way of showing people that you have the respect of your peers. The accolade of ‘Best Newcomer’ or ‘VA of the Year’ or ‘Best VA in the South West’ can seriously boost your business giving you more traffic to your website and generating important leads. It can also give your business a great reputation and help you build that trust that is so so important in business. I’m proud to be involved in this year’s NLP Award preparation. A great opportunity to celebrate achievements, whilst also helping Macmillan Cancer Support by way of a charity auction. A fab chance to get myself a posh new frock and have a glass or two.
So, I think the conclusion here is to give it a try, you’ve nothing to lose. It’ll be great experience, a fab night out and it’ll give you a good excuse to celebrate or commiserate with a glass of bubbly.
