FAQS 

The awards are open for small businesses, micro businesses and sole traders to enter with no more than 20 employees.

There are many great reasons to enter the BizBubble or Modern Makers Awards.

GREAT EXPOSURE
Business awards are a great marketing tool. Just being shortlisted can improve brand awareness and promote your business to new customers. Short listers and Winners will maximise PR exposure by placing the award logo on all marketing materials including business cards, literature, email, website and social media.

NEW BUSINESS

MORALE
Awards recognise the hard work and achievements of your business (and it’s employees) so winning one can help boost morale and improve motivation. Everyone gets focused on what’s great about the company they work for and can feel proud to be a part of it.

BENCHMARKING
Entering your business for an award can often make you look at your business from a different perspective, comparing yourself to competitors helps to evaluate  your business to see how you could improve whether that be your branding, position, growth, customer service or strategy. Ultimately will help you think about ways you could be doing things better and identify areas for improvement which in turn could be more valuable than the award prize itself!

INCREASED CREDIBILITY
Being shortlisted or winning a BizBubble or Modern Maker award can act as a 3rd party endorsement for your business.
