Everything you need to enter

Entering carefully selected awards can be an important part of your marketing strategy. Winning an award, or even being a finalist, provides numerous opportunities for increased exposure. Leverage it correctly and it’s a great way to attract new business or even new recruits.

To be effective you need three things:

  1. To know which awards to enter; see the table below for a list of awards we believe are most relevant to financial advisers and planners
  2. A compelling entry; the first of our two checklists will help you produce an eye-catching submission
  3. A plan to promote your success; our second checklist explains everything you need to do

It all starts though with deciding which awards to enter. The table below lists the key awards which take place throughout the year. We’ll keep this updated regularly, so make sure you check back often and follow us on LinkedIn where we will make regular announcements.


Our checklists will help you create compelling entries and then promote that success.
