Project & Company Awards

↩ All Services

Project and company awards are a powerful and meaningful opportunity to commemorate and recognize the achievements of your company and individual team members. Marketing these awards bolsters your business development efforts as well.

Winning an award means your company receives an added layer of credibility. You not only say you do great work, but now you can prove it. Awards showcase your excellence and commitment to delivering outstanding projects. They serve as third-party endorsements that reassure prospects of your capabilities. A prestigious award can be a powerful catalyst in attracting new clients and partners. Beyond that, it can also help with recruiting future employees when you highlight award-winning projects.

  • Working with Lindsay on our AGC of Kansas project awards for several years has been a success, and we’ve won our category award every year. Lindsay works with our team to assemble the project award package and asks great questions to put together the award winning submission. We’ve also hired Lindsay and nu marketing to help re-design our website and write content for the site. She has also assisted with our social media platforms. Lindsay is professional, dependable, and fun to work with. I would highly recommend Lindsay and nu marketing to any contractor, engineer, or architect looking for a marketing consultant.
