What an exciting month! With the deadline looming for the Business of the Year Awards with ‘thebestof’, Get A Room Online did not think we stood a chance as there are so many amazing fully established businesses that are involved across the UK, we felt that we would be batted out of the park in an instance.
How wrong could we be!?
thebestof is an incredible company that helps local businesses build up their reputation through recommendations and hard-work. The campaign helps build the profile of each business by each business receiving reviews about the service the customers receive. The awards run on a national level.
Laura, one of the Directors at Get A Room Online received a phone call from David who runs thebestof Eastbourne to notify us that we are 2nd in our category in the UK. Laura did not believe David for one minute and thought that a joke was being played…until it dawned on her that…David doesn’t mess around when it comes to awards!
“…you are only 9 reviews behind the number 1 slot” he said, “you have such a good chance of winning this…!”
Well that was it… the challenge had been set.
2 weeks until the deadline and we had a minimum of 10 reviews to receive to hit first place as long the Agent from Bury didn’t progress any further. All work was put on hold and Laura and the team started frantically contacting tenants, landlords and contractors asking for a review of the service they have received from us. We slowly started seeing the number of reviews increase and Bury had barely moved an inch…. “We’ve got this” Laura chanted to her business partner as the excitement and pride was getting the better of her.
The deadline was looming and although we had come on leaps and bounds there was still a chance that things could change until it dawned on us that 50 reviews had been received in 30 hours! WOW! Never have we felt so humbled and proud of the hard work that we had put into the business.
The wait for the final results to be called was agonising…but low and behold WE DID IT!
Most loved letting agent in the UK!
We can’t thank everybody enough for the kind words, support and enthusiasm from our Clients, Landlords and Contractors. We do put 100% into what we do, and we aim to give the best service possible. These reviews have shown us that we are doing the right thing and have motivated us to take the business to the next level. We have lots of new and exciting things coming up this year including new initiatives, a networking event in Brighton, Charity work and lots, lots more.
