Nominee Toolkit

Who Needs Attention? You Do!

Best of the West Side success starts with Round 1: Nominations. Let’s do this.

5 ways to get nominations

  1. Ask for them: We’ve created “Nominate Us” ads that you can use on your website (below). Be sure to place one in a prominent position so your customers see it, and then link back to so they can easily access the ballot.
  2. Send reminders: Post regularly on your social media accounts, asking your followers to nominate your business and provide this link:
  3. Repeat: Send emails to your customer database. Recommended dates:
    • September 13: Nominations are open!
    • September 15: Friendly reminder
    • September 23: Last call – nominations end October 1.
  4. Speak up: Tell your customers which categories you want to be nominated in. Download this PDF flyer to put by your register and make it a priority to ask your customers to nominate you.
  5. Let us help: Download our free social media graphics. They are pre-formatted and labeled for the appropriate platform.
