Awards management clients

Companies around the world are using Award Force to boost their brand, enhance their bottomline and create product placement opportunities.

Here’s how

Proactively increase brand awareness and product placement

A unique + powerful brand property

Apart from your website and offline collateral, what space can you truly claim to own? Social media is saturated, ads are expensive and overcrowded, and whenever you think you found a new placement opportunity, your competitors are not far behind. Your awards are yours alone.

Inbound marketing on steroids

Inbound works because it doesn’t force the buying process and relies on gradual exploration towards the end goal of making a sale. Running an awards program works on the same principle and offers a unique method for encouraging discovery and awareness of a brand and its products.

Engage your community for brand virality

Awards are the perfect community engager! Participants are highly involved, deeply invested and excited to share their participation in your program. That means more eyes on your brand and more opportunities to tell your story.

Drive traffic to your sponsors

The Award Force entry form builder allows for positioning of text, images and video in helpful areas we call “content blocks”. These areas can be used to display image or video based sponsor ads and link directly to the sponsor websites for a boost in traffic.

You can even get creative and make the visitation of those sites part of your entry process.

Built-in social sharing

Leverage social media to organically grow program awareness and maximise interest in your awards.

Custom social messages

Make it quick and easy for entrants to engage others in your program with social sharing buttons. Entrants can use your carefully crafted attention-grabbing default message or write their own message if they prefer.
