What Winning Awards Can Mean for Your Business

At The PC Support Group we were pleased to win Network Computing Awards “Service Provider of the Year 2015” title.  Let’s tell you why – but first, let’s explain a little about us. There’s a point to this, so please bear with us…

• We specialise in “corporate quality” IT support to SMB’s throughout the Northwest.

• Our unique structure combines advanced support technology with local, friendly, professional delivery. A flexible, high quality service at an affordable price. Our unwavering focus is to remove our client’s concerns about their computers and anything that communicates with, runs on, or connects to them.

• We monitor and manage all our clients’ computers simultaneously and proactively prevent problems before they occur – saving time and money.

• We don’t patronise our clients, orconfuse them with technical jargon. Our staff understand people and business, not just technology, providing superb support and a level of service that’s the envy of the industry.

• The PC Support Group is a member of the Apple Consultants Network – with qualified engineers providing Apple Mac support/assistance with other Apple devices. The sheer scope, scale and quality of our offer makes us different, and makes us the best.

That’s aLONG marketing message! Too much for Twitter’s meagre word count and our target market wants something they have TIME to read! That’s where awards come in and why it’s been fantastic to win something every year.

“Award-Winning IT Support” encapsulates what we do and that we’re excellent at it.

We’ve won many awardsby passing scrutiny by a judging panel but those won by vote are also useful.  Writing to contacts, telling them we’ve been nominated and requesting their vote is away to remind people who we are and that we’re good enough for a nomination! Word is circulated via social media too!

Awards evenings ensure plenty ‘tweetable’ material– especially winning! The photo of us collecting atrophy that says people believe in our excellence enough to vote in droves!

Then it’s time to write again, thankingcontacts for voting, to put news out via social media, press releases, the chamber. The winner’s logo is fixed on our website, e-mails and literature.

We chose for our Social Media headers a photo of our team holding aloft all the accolades we’ve worked so hard for – from Excellence in Customer Service to being listed in the Top 100 Managed Service Providers in the world.  They say a picture paints a thousand words!

Nothing says you’re superb at what you do as quickly and easily as an award and we’re grateful to everyone who ever nominated, or judged us ‘outstanding’ over the years.
