Small business marketing book nominated

It’s not everyday that you get an email that reads something like this:

Your book ‘31 days to write better copy‘ has been nominated for a 2012 Small Business Book Award in the Marketing category.

What a great day, eh?

I wrote the 31 days to write better copy to help business owners and marketing executives to get better results through their copy, marketing and their marketing material.

It’s quite an honour to have your book in the same awards as such greats. Now, I know how Meryl Streep feels when she’s up against Glenn Close for Best Actress at this year’s Oscars.

The Small Business Book Awards recognize business books that were published in 2011. Small business owners often seek advice and information through books. While there are many thousands of books published each year, it’s those of interest to small businesses and entrepreneurs that the Small Business Book Awards seek to honor.

With so many books being published each year, we wanted to recognize those that made a difference to small business owners and managers and startup entrepreneurs,” said Ivana Taylor, Book Editor at Small Business Trends, which produces the Awards. “Our annual Small Business Book Awards are a way to highlight the books that entrepreneurs are reading and learning from.

The Awards are an honor to the authors who write books for the small business and entrepreneurial community. Says Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends, “For many of the authors, writing a book is a labor of love. Often they get up early in the morning before the rest of the family awakes, and they devote their evenings, weekends, holidays and vacations to writing. They deserve recognition.

Here’s a bit more About the Small Business Book Awards:

The Small Business Book Awards, now in its fourth year, enable the small business community to nominate, show their support for, and vote on their favorite business books. The top 10 winners will be selected by readers based on number of votes as the Best Small Business Books of 2012, while the top five vote-getters in each category become Category Winners. Voting commences February 1, 2012. In last year’s Awards, over 41,000 votes were cast by the community.

The Small Business Book Awards initiative is produced by Small Business Trends, an award-winning online publication, which along with its sister sites, serves over 4,000,000 small business owners, stakeholders and entrepreneurs annually.

Voting opens on 1st February so I will ask for your support. But for now, I’m basking in the glory of the nomination.
