We did it! Yes, that’s right – after Full Proof (our trading name for our proofreading division) were shortlisted in September for the Britain’s Best Business Name award, we actually went one further and won the whole competition!
All ten shortlisted nominees had to get their friends, relatives and customers to vote for them, and luckily we have a lot of lovely, loyal clients who were willing to do this for us. A huge thanks to all of you who voted – we are forever grateful to you!
Here are the other business names that made the final:
Making You Content
Mud, Sweat and Gears
The Hip-Hop Chip Shop
Tree Wise Men
The competition was run by London-based firm Make It Cheaper, whose Marketing Exec James McAllister said:
“Firstly, a massive congratulations to Nick on winning. It’s important for small businesses owners to put serious thought into their business names. As far as marketing tools go, your business’s name is one of the most simple, yet most powerful that you have at your disposal. Nick has turned a memorable business name into some really strong branding across the whole of the Full Media group, and I have no doubt for his success in the future.”
This is the third award that Full Media/Full Proof have won, having scooped a Scoot Headline Award and a National Business Leader Award in 2014. This was the first time we received a giant cheque, though! How exciting is that!? Thanks to Make It Cheaper for running the competition – it has been a great way to round off another successful year for our company. Our eyes are on 2016 now, to see what that holds!
Nick Jones is an award-winning children’s author published by Full Media Ltd. His debut book Sarah’s Shadow was published in December 2017 and the Kindle version soon became a bestseller in one of Amazon’s categories. It also won a Purple Dragonfly Award and a Book Excellence Award in 2018.
