Top 5 tips
Pop the poster in your window, on the door, in the loos, behind the counter; wherever your customers will see it! Chat to your regulars, let them know what it would mean to you to win. One of last year's winners even had an iPad on the counter so customers could vote there and then!
Do you have email addresses for your punters? Send a note straight to their inbox and let them know it'll only take a few moments to vote for you.
Is there a community notice board, local Facebook group or a regular meet-up? Take leaflets along, stick up the poster or badge, let other local businesses know about the awards and help put your area on the map!
