Awards are subjective and popular opinions. Not facts.

1.
Consider taking a step back from seeing an award as a fact.

2.
At the same time consider stepping back from showcasing an award as a fact to justify yourself and your authority.

And 3,
consider that so many awards allow people to pay to be nominated, pay to win or allow for numerous voting from the same person.

As opposed to saying award winning, or highlighting the awards and accolades above the fold and even in the titles on your social and web presence, consider an authentic route of showcasing the authority you have and the authenticity that proves it beyond the appearance of hype.

“If you can vote many times for some content or award, where is the authenticity, honor and rewards in those results?”

“If you can vote many times for some content or award, where is the authenticity, honor and rewards in those results?”

And this is not to knock all awards…

there are some that are highly regarded as well as legitimate, but still they are subjective. And in a time when others can present a false award that they bought to try to hype authority they do not have, consider spotlighting the authority you have and leave the awards for under the fold or a few paragraphs down in the bio.

When it comes to opinions vs facts online as well as subjective vs objective messaging, carry through, author and perform with a tone that can showcase an award as an accolade of opinion over trying to make it part of your factual authority.

Yes, it is a fact you won that award… However, the award itself, is based on opinion… and an opinion that could be biased.

Then there are some that go all goo goo for awards and the hype, but is that really who you want to attract to work with? And if they are only about shiny objects and hype, are they the type of client or customer that will stick around? Or will they follow the next person, product or business that looks cooler than you?

In center is an FSG logo watermark over a blue night sky and some palm trees in the bottom and a quote in white text that is credited to Proverbs 14:15 NIV in a small font on the bottom and in the upper right center the quote reads, “The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps.”
“The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps. Proverbs 14:15

Consider removing or reducing the time and the focus on winning awards or bragging about them as you replace that time with amplifying the authority, authenticity and integrity of you and your knowledge.

It might just create a great authentic impact that can serve your reputation and reach much more so than some award will.
