Previous years have treated our clients well, with all nominations for awards at least reaching the shortlisted stage, and many proving to be top of the class and taking home the winner’s prize. No difference this year either, as The Write Impression-penned nominations have proven a success once more, with our client Vocal winning an award and being shortlisted for another at the CIR Business Continuity Awards.
Based in Essex, Vocal delivers robust and proven communication solutions for businesses of all sizes; and after all their hard work and ours too of course, they collected ‘Specialist Company of the Year’ whilst also coming close with the ‘Most Innovative Product of the Year’ award. We are obviously proud of ourselves for writing winning nominations, but also of our fantastic clients who provide us with the continued opportunities.
Standing out from the crowd has proven to be a success for Vocal, with them winning or being shortlisted for industry awards more than any other emergency notification provider since the launch of iModus (2.0).
As you can tell by the title, The Write Impression has a 100% record for award nominations, and we don’t plan on that changing. So, if you are keen to be crowned top dog like Vocal then we’re sure there will be something we can do to get your hands on the top prize.
Top Tips for Writing Award Nominations:
Be specific in terms of the awards criteria.
Try to relate everything that’s great about your business to a part of the awards criteria.
Make sure everything you include is relevant and interesting.
But don’t let that stop you from giving full explanations.
Use as much or as little information as you need to make a strong, relevant point which sells your business.
Reference yourself and your business.
Use examples to describe/show what your business can do/has done. A real life example or statistic makes a much stronger point than just saying what your business it capable of. Anyone can say their business can do something, not everyone can prove it!
They look bad and therefore make your business look bad. Double check, triple check, then check again if you have to.
Industry language might be second nature to you, but it might not be to the judges. This includes acronyms, spell them out the first time you use them.
Be proud of your business.
Talk about what inspired your business, talk about clients you have helped, talk about your CSR, your positive impact on the community, any area of the business you are proud of – as long as it relates to the awards criteria.
