Here are some tips to help you begin promoting your new status as a Vega Digital Awards winner:
1. Make Space on Your Company Website & Email Newsletters
Have a website? That’s great! But, remember that there is a high possibility that your website is ranked at the same search page as your competitors. This is where you need to make good use of your website space. Placing your award recognition on your website is beneficial for you.
Create room on your homepage, masthead or newsletters to showcase your win from the 2017 Vega Digital Awards. Even if it’s a small version of the award logo, you and your team will get an instant boost in credibility. Choose any high-resolution web and print-ready graphics from our store – available in JPG, PDF, PNG, GIF, and EPS formats – and create your own banners for a customized presentation.
2. Send a Press Release
Announce your win to the world by publishing news item, press release or blog posts. Also, your local publications may have a current events or awards section that can place your story where people will see it.

A multitude of social media platforms can get the message to the masses – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, and Instagram are only a few ways to instantly promote around the world.
If your team isn’t big on self-promotion, a well-timed thank-you tweet or status update is a great way to show appreciation and draw attention to your award-winning work. Include us in the posting, and we’ll be sure to share or +1. If you’d rather use a hashtag, include #VegaDigitalAwards #VegaAwards #IAAAwards in your message.
You’re not just a face in the crowd – you’re an award winner! Don’t forget to update any platforms that allow for longer bios, like Facebook and LinkedIn. Make sure your staff adds these awards to their personal profiles and resumes.
