Award season is nearly here – the Oscars, the Grammy’s, and new this year, the Velocify Elite Awards.
Award season is a time to reflect and celebrate individual and team successes. But it’s also about competition – awarding those that push the status quo and breakaway from the pack. The prestigious Velocify Elite Awards program is aimed at finding leading examples of customers creating sales acceleration breakthroughs.
Not only will our Velocify Elite Award winners have a chance to be recognized for their accomplishments, they’ll also have the opportunity win a trip to a Velocify City Limits roadshow event of their choice. There are some good cities on the calendar this year too, including – Washington DC, Los Angeles, and Chicago.*
Hopefully that got your attention! So what are we looking for?
Tell us a story
We want to hear a story about how your organization overcame a challenge or an obstacle. Focus your nomination on specific accomplishments and relate those accomplishments to past performance or industry norms. What did your process for lead follow-up look like before Velocify and after? What market factors or internal factors played into your success as a company and how has Velocify helped?
Back up your success with data
Just like in most things – metrics matter. If I entered a watermelon eating contest and I told you I won the competition, you might be impressed. But if I told you I ate 50 watermelon slices in five minutes, with the next closest competitor eating only 38 slices, you’d probably be more impressed.
Obviously your metrics should focus on revenue, growth, and productivity, not watermelon eating contest stats, but you get the idea. Metrics make a difference. So add data to support your success. Velocify customers who share the most compelling stories and success metrics (around ROI, company growth, productivity) will win.
The deadline to submit is February 28, 2017. A Velocify customer may nominate themselves. In addition, Velocify account managers and partners may also nominate a Velocify customer. Click here to learn more and enter.
