How to promote your award-winning product & company?

We know that social proof is one of the most influential factors in consumers’ decision-making. Consumer and Professional (third party) reviews are nearly 12 times more trusted than internal descriptions; the LIV Hospitality Design Awards is the ultimate review and testimonial.

Print your certificate and winner badge, add them to your website and share them as widely as you can across your community, whether on social media, a newsletter, a blog post, or through direct marketing.

Add the winner badge to your product package and to your design brochures. This is a fantastic marketing opportunity.

Issue a press release and send it to your local media and/or communication agency. LIV Awards will also publish the official winners’ press releases on the LIV Awards website.

Add your winner badge to your email signature — your email signature is seen every day, by many people who may not know about your award. Just add a statement that says ‘Winner of the (year) (Award Name)’ is a powerful marketing technique, turning every outgoing email into a testament to your achievement.

Add your winner badge to your product design page and across all product displays. Share this with your retailers/resellers, who will then display the signage to the public, encouraging sales and driving interest.

Involve your team — by sharing your achievement, your sales and marketing team not only boost their own morale but also pass on the joy of your win with all their contacts and clients. Happiness is infectious, and sharing the results of your hard work is a perfect example: everybody is glad to hear the news.

Consider an advertisement. It is a common business technique to take out an advert to call attention to an awards win. Some companies also use this opportunity to congratulate fellow winners, again, sharing their joy.

As soon as you are a winner in the LIV Hospitality Design Award, that stays with you — the ability to add ‘award winning’ to all company descriptions cannot be understated, and it is a benefit that never ends.

To conclude, an industry-recognized award serves as an independent endorsement of your company’s quality. Winning the LIV Hospitality Design Award is a powerful competitive advantage and, more importantly, it is an evaluation that will bolster potential customers’ trust, especially when coupled with your own internal marketing material.
