Reign Awards - 4 Reasons to Submit

by Kenda Salisbury, CPSM, Business Development Manager, Degenkolb Engineers

Look, I get it, you've got a lot to do every day as marketing professionals. Preparing a submittal for the
 SMPS Seattle Reign Awards doesn't make it into the top 10 deadlines you must achieve this week for
your firm. I'm going to ask that you step back and think of the advantages of adding a submittal to your list this week.

1. Gives you an opportunity to fully evaluate the marketing activities you completed by writing your submission.

2. Receive open and honest written feedback on your marketing actitives from senior marketing and business development professionals and clients.

3. Evaluate your marketing activities against your competitors and teaming partners to determine where you stand in the market.

4. Winners are announced live, in front of your peers, at the Reign Awards. Recognition includes coverage on the SMPS Seattle website, social media platforms, local press, and a fancy plaque to show off to your company.

Submittals are due on Tuesday, May 26th. I look forward to seeing your submittal at the Reign Awards this year!

    Thanks for this post, Kenda! I agree that submitting to the Reign Awards is a worthwhile endeavor. Another reason to do so is that it's a great chance to show your colleagues and firm leaders that the work you do is valuable and deserves recognition! It's not often that we as marketing professionals get recognized for the hard work we do, but this is a great opportunity.
