Why Should I Enter?

Why should I enter?

Winning an Influencer Marketing Award witnessed by senior representatives from the industry's leading stakeholders is the pinnacle of 12 months hard work. Add to that the value of winning an award which will speak for itself when differentiating your brand for current and prospective clients.

Of course, you'll receive a trophy and certificate for your office reception and bragging rights, but winning an award gives you so much more.

Focus, Motivation & Teamwork

Often we receive feedback that gearing up to win an award provides focus, motivation and an end goal for the team. Something to work towards and strive for during the year. It brings together and motivates the team and encourages creative, innovative thinking with clients and partners.

The mere act of entering will go some way to letting your employees know you value their hard work and if you do manage to make the shortlist, or bag an award on the night then employee motivation will reach unprecedented levels!

Client Relations

Collaborating with clients on an award entry solidifies the relationship and brings teams closer together. It also provides an opportunity to benchmark your work against your peers and celebrate with clients during the evening.

Differentiation & New Business

An award seal on your website or RFP documentation will speak volumes and we’ve found that word of mouth on a gong is an incredibly powerful tool when getting to shortlist stage for new business, especially in an industry where differentiation is a challenge.

Industry Development

You’ll be helping the industry develop and mature by showcasing exceptional work proving the value of influencer marketing to the wider business, brands and marketing teams.
