Hard won awards are valuable but an award that you can have freely may have little value.
Corp-vis send out huge numbers of emails about their awards and there are a lot of awards, such as :- Large Business award, Canadian Business award, HR & training awards, Small Business awards, Consultancy awards, Eastern European Business Elite awards, African Corporate Excellence awards, UK Corporate Excellence awards, Businesswoman awards, Executive awards, Recruitment awards, Nordic Business awards, Mid-Market Achievement awards, and so on.
Corporate Vision claim they are dedicated to working around the clock to shine a spotlight on the brightest, best performing and most deserving companies and individuals from around the business world. Also, that they are fiercely passionate about recognising outstanding achievement, game-changing innovation and stellar performance, and all of the awards are carefully tailored to provide detailed and in-depth analysis of the very best each market, industry, sector and region has to offer.
So, how are winners chosen?
Reportedly, by a combination of votes gathered from their network of industry partners and their own in-house research.
However, large numbers of businesses get spam email from corp-vis.com offering them such awards. A recent such email also offered a spot on the front page of their magazine Corporate Vision for £2,200 reduced to £1,295 and that would include a double page advert/editorial.
Is this a scam?
No. Because there don’t appear to be any mandatory charges to enter for an award or to win. But, as they say, there are opportunities to advertise your win in the magazine.
The basic package they offer is for £399 and includes
- 1 page interview and profile
- Front cover sub-headline and picture.
There are more expensive packages available and extras such as a personalised crystal trophy for £250 and a personalised winner logo for £100.
Have you won one of these awards and was it value for money? Let me know your experience.
