How to promote your award-winning company and establishment?

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 on your website, share with your community on social media, website, and direct marketing.

Add the Winner badge on your establishment/ company communication collaterals and brochures. This is a fantastic marketing opportunity.

Issue a Press Release and send it to your local media and/ or communication agency. LIV is publishing the official winner press release on the LIV website.

Add your winner badge to your email signature: Your email signature is seen daily by scores of people who may not know about your award. Just add a statement that says “winner of the (year) (award name)” so that every outgoing email is also a testament to your achievement.

Involve your team: your sales & marketing team should celebrate the achievement to boost their morale and communicate the win to all their contacts/clients.

Consider an advertisement. It’s common for companies to take out an advertisement after they’ve won an award to call attention to their achievement, or possibly to congratulate fellow winners.

Add “award-winning” to all your company/establishment descriptions. After you win an award, from that day on you have the right to call yourselves an “award-winning” company. An industry-recognized award serves as an independent endorsement of your company’s quality. Winning the LIV Hospitality Design Awards is a great competitive advantage and more importantly, it’s an evaluation that will bolster potential customers’ trust when coupled with your internal marketing material.
