Nominate Your Business for a Shorty Award!

You love and appreciate your customers as much as we do. Chances are, they’d like to send the love back to you and honor you with a major award!

The Shorty Awards offer your Tweeps the chance to vote for their favorite things over various categories via the social media site Twitter. The votes are then calculated by using the custom hashtags direct from the Shorty Awards website. You can plug-in your businesses’ name and the category for which it is nominated, which auto-generates a Tweet. All your customers have to do is give a reason why they love you so much.

Granted, I’m a little biased, but here’s how I tweeted a vote for us:

I nominate @StocktonGraham for a Shorty Award in #customerservice because we strive to give our customers our all, daily.

If you feel that way, we’d certainly appreciate your vote. Or, if you absolutely love our coffee, you might tweet:

I nominate @StocktonGraham for a Shorty Award in #food because they have the best single-origin Costa Rica around!

There is a category for practically everything and you can have a great time searching through the nominees.

Be sure to nominate your business and get your Facebook fans, Tweeps and loyal customers to vote early and often! Encouraging votes might also motivate some of your less tech savvy customers to finally join the conversation on Twitter, thus giving you another means of communicating with them.

We invite you to follow us on Twitter for business-building tips, specialty coffee & allied product specials, etc.

Also if you’ve yet to establish your business on Twitter, stay tuned for a feature in Graham’s Gazette in the coming weeks on creating a Twitter account!
