Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Enter Business Awards

Back in 2016, we were delighted to be awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the Adur & Worthing Business Awards Small Business category. We can really vouch for the power of an award (or even a nomination) in helping a business grow.

With that in mind, here’s our top 5 reasons why we think you should enter Business Awards!

1.    Greater Awareness

Whether you’re a nominee, finalist or even a proud winner of a category – you’re likely receive a high amount of valuable publicity before and after the event, through print, email and social media as well as on the night of the awards ceremony. 

2.    More Sales & Customers

Putting your business forward for an award and as a result becoming a nominee, finalist or winner will boost your trust-worthiness among prospective customers, which can result in increased sales for your business.

3.    Expertise Recognition 

Being seen as a nominee within an awards category reinforces the value and skill you bring to your industry sector. This will give you much deserved recognition for all of your hard work, and will show others what you can offer!

4.    Publicity Opportunities

As an award nominee, finalist or winner, you’ll be able to use your status for PR and publicity purposes. In most cases, you will be given access to use the awards branding on your website and across marketing materials, which will help build trust and awareness with your prospects and target audiences.

5.    Boost Your Staff Morale

Involving your staff at the glitzy awards ceremony gives a huge morale boost, and is also the perfect opportunity to say ‘thank you’ (especially after the last year!). Knowing that they have contributed to the recognition of being nominated or even winning an award is a huge motivator to keep up the good work!

We are delighted to share that we are Media Partners of this year’s Adur & Worthing Business Awards!  The awards, now in their thirteenth year, seek entries from a cross section of businesses who have shown exceptional growth, innovation or an outstanding contribution to the community in which they operate.  

So, if you’re local to the area and know a business or individual that deserves to be recognised, or would like to put your own business forward, why not get involved this year? 2021 entries are now open! Head over to to find out more.
