The 702 Small Business Awards with SAGE are back and once again, consumers are asked to nominate businesses that have provided them with excellent service. Now in its fifth year, the Small Business Awards have become well known as a platform for small businesses to gain media exposure and credibility which tends to translate directly into new clients.
“Sage believes in supporting small businesses by creating the freedom for them to succeed. As such we believe the 702 Small Business Awards provides the perfect platform to recognise small businesses that are making an impact in the market.”, said Tamsin Van Rooyen marketing manager for Sage Pastel, part of the Sage Group.
Nominations opened on 12 August 2013 and will close on Friday, 13 September. During this time, 30 finalists will be selected. Each will be interviewed on air, on either the breakfast show or afternoon drive.
Feedback from the finalists over the years shows that this short interview leads to an immediate response from potential new customers. “At Talk Radio 702, we are committed to building the capacity of small businesses, to help them to create the jobs that are so desperately necessary to take our country forward,” said Pheladi Gwangwa, Talk Radio 702 station manager.
