Title: Business Globe Awards reviews?
Post by: kenji88 on
Just curious. I recently got an email from them claiming that a customer of ours have nominated my company for our excellence. We DO have a really stellar reputation so I would not be surprised but it raises a few questions about this:
- Did this REALLY happen?
- Is it REALLY free? I am INSTANTLY skeptical when a company finds me and says, let me do something for you for FREE (yeah, sure)!
- What is their "deal"?
- This looks like a new business altogether (based on their website which is www.bgawards.net )

Anyone heard about this company? Should I proceed with their nomination process? I looked into it and the information they want from us is really basic and can be found online about us, so that's fine.

I guess if they are not asking for my CC info, then I don't have anything to lose, right?
What is your opinion?

Any input is appreciated.

My 2 cents:
I can never tell whether something happened or not and I don't think anyone in this forum will be able to tell you... If you have a great business (as you say), then surely, it is a possibility.
I don't know the business so I am unsure and I agree with you. Nothing is really FREE in this world, right?
I went to their site and it has a pretty detailed FAQ that tells you how they make money. From what I gathered, they are a marketing company and just like other online services, they have a free service and they have premium services so this sounds reasonable. I agree with you that as long as they don't ask for any payment information, then you are in good shape and don't have anything to lose.
They do look like a new(er) business but that doesn't mean anything.

I would say: IF (!!!) they don't ask for payment or your card, then go ahead and proceed with the process and report back so that others will know as well.

Hope this helps!

I think AuthorGal has summed it up quite nicely... Try it and let us know! Good luck!

They take self-nominations too, so I nominated my own company. Let's see what happens...

They actually have some legit connections for TV too but they don't advertise it openly but like even on a national level. Of course it costs an arm and leg and not for regular joes but they can get you connected with people and market your business at the right places. I know one of the judges BTW.

Hi Guys (and ladies),

I submitted my nomination (self) as well. Anyone has any updates on this process? I got the email confirmation that they have received it and they will be in touch with me at the end of this year, once the panelists have made a decision. So I guess I shouldn't expect any updates till then?

If anybody has a progress report on this, I would appreciate it.

It looks like everyone will be notified depending on their category announcement date, so you won't hear from us/them till then. Beauty industry is up first so if anybody here is in that category, just let us know.

Actually, if you are referring to the site (bgawards.net) then it will be Beauty, Contractors and Entertainment.

Actually, I don't see entertainment category anymore. They seemed to have removed it along with a few other categories (mega LOL  :o).

Anyway, it looks like that there will be a total of 5 categories and they will all end at the same time. Closing date on all categories will be March 15th, 2020 with announcement dates on March 31st, 2020.

That's all we know now. They seem to change some things, such as categories and deadlines every so often. Curious how this will all work out... Anyway, good luck to us all!  ;D

I just got a notification to fill out their extended business enrollment form. Finally something is moving forward (hopefully)!
