YOUR AWARDS CHECKLIST

Your Success : Written with Passion

Congratulations

Now you have got through to the finals, here is a simple checklist of what you can do next to maximise your win so far…

  • Let your team know! It is important that everyone is aware of what you have achieved so far. Try to find out how many people entered your category so you can show how you stood out against the competition.
  • Re-write your email footers to the award you are shortlisted for and the award logo
  • Add this onto your news page of your website and link this to your social media platforms
  • Prepare a press release and send it out to your local, regional and industry press. Don’t forget to reshare this on social channels when published. If you are struggling to do this in-house, then please contact us on 07900 571189 to discuss how we can prepare this for you.
  • Follow the awards and key members of their staff on social media.
  • Start to follow the other finalists in your category
  • Put an alert on so you are notified when anything is posted to do with the awards.
  • Tag the awards organisers/ local chamber/ membership organisations/local papers and into your comments on social media for them to retweet, like, comment, share
  • Include the write up about the awards in your next newsletter or communication to your clients and suppliers.
  • Book your tickets for the awards dinner
  • Look at your existing marketing collateral – this will need to be updated when you win so be prepared and get some quotes together early on!  This could include vehicle/clothing livery, business cards etc. We have some great contacts for vehicle livery and clothing livery so please click here if you would like an introduction!
  • After you’ve won, consider holding a ‘celebrate our win’ day at your company after the dinner and invite your contact list to join you for a drink and some cake during the day.

We had an excellent 2021 as a business and entrepreneurs thanks to Lucinda, she has exceptional attention to detail and work ethic, and due to her diligence, we entered 11 awards, out of which we made it as a finalist in 8 and won 3.

Working with Lucinda and Pure Awards is straightforward and effortless. We have extended our contract into 2022 and do not doubt that Lucinda will help us bag more awards.

Thank you Lucinda for all you do and we couldn’t be happier.

“We knew that we’d done some things during the pandemic that we wanted to get recognised but also that we didn’t have the internal resource (or expertise) to do a good job at it. Entering awards takes time. If you are going to do a good job of it then it takes a LOT of time. It also needs expertise. Award entries need to be crafted in a certain way, the panels of judges may have to read hundreds of entries and you need to ensure that you capture their attention to make the short lists.

Once I’d made the decision to make ‘Awards’ part of our strategy for 2021 I engaged with Lucinda to help me pull together the categories and specific awards that I wanted to enter. Lucinda collated a list including all the costs and we agreed a retainer, I made sure that I included enough budget for myself and my team to attend if we made the cut. Lucinda interviewed several of our team members around the specific categories and then set about writing up the entries, she managed the timelines/deadlines and chased us down for further information on request.

In total we entered 21 awards, were shortlisted for 14 and won 8.

The impact on our team from these awards that recognised their efforts through 2 of the hardest years in their lives is immeasurable. Lucinda made it happen. Without her it simply wouldn’t of. She’s patient, she understands the process, she’s a great writer. I have no hesitation in recommending Lucinda White to your business.”
