Winter Business Awards to get your teeth into.

I love awards, especially if I get them. 

Ben Gazzara

The Up Level Your Business Blogs are about topics that whilst aren’t ‘essential’ must do items such as accounting, selling etc – they are things to add on when you have achieved a balance with your business structure and have the time to commit to adding more to your business.

Following on from Up Level Your Business here is an amazing list provided by the beautiful people at Boost Marketing. To get your very own list sent straight to your inbox simply visit – boost-marketing.co.uk/register-for-free-award-alerts and set it up with a few painless clicks (ok and a bit of typing).

For December and January allllllll of these are open for entry – google them, research them and get applying! Or ask the lovely folk at Boost Marketing to do it for you – it’s what they specialise in after all! On the website you can search by industry and area (mainly within UK but option to search ‘UK and International’) and results show deadlines, awarding dates and a link to the actual award page.

This is the list I get emailed to me with the UK awards – all I do is google the awards I’m interested in or use Boosts Awards page to follow the links on their site.

So go and check Boost Marketing out as the Awards List itself is a fabulous resource. It’s the main one in my Toolkit for the PR section.

Until next time my beauties – stay productive.

p.s. I should point out I’m NOT on commision, I don’t get kickbacks or affiliate goodies from these guys – I just think the value they offer with the free resource is fabulous. It’s fabulous to see such information shared readily and not just think ‘meh’ seen it all before – as I seriously don’t know of any other such information asset.
