It’s Time to Vote for the 2011 Top Sales Awards

Filed under: Uncategorized — Paul McCord @ 12:49 pm

It’s the end of the year and that means time for the second annual Top Sales Awards. Top Sales Awards is an online award celebration of the best in sales—from the top sales book published in 2011 to the Top Sales Though Leader to the Top Sales Productivity Tool.

Last year’s inaugural voting and ceremony were well received and honored a number of top men, women, and companies who are committed to helping sellers and sales leaders perform better.  This year’s list of nominees is not only bigger but expands the number of categories in which medals will be awarded.

For the past few weeks nominations have been gathered and now each category has anywhere from 10 to 12 finalists to be voted on. The top three vote getters in each category will be awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals with the gold going to the top vote getter, the silver to second highest, and the bronze to the third place finalist.

Public voting—that’s you and me—accounts for 50% of the vote with the other 50% coming from a panel of three expert judges.  Once the public and expert panel voting has been done, results will given over to an independent auditor for final calculations.

The 2011 Top Sales Award categories are:

Top Sales Assessment Tool

Top Sales & Marketing Thought Leader

Top Sales & Marketing Book

Top Sales Article

Top Sales & Marketing Blog

Top Sales & Marketing Resource Site

Top Selling Solution

Top Sales Productivity Tool

Top Social Media Site

Top CRM Solution

Top Sales & Marketing Blog Post

Top Sales & Marketing EBook

Top Sales & Marketing Webinar

Top Sales Job Board

I encourage you to head over and begin voting.   You’ll find names and sites you’re familiar with–and maybe some that are new to you.  Whether some are new to you or you’re familiar with them all, your input is needed—so go support your favorites (and by the way, I’m honored to have been nominated in three categories—and I’m not too proud to ask for your voting consideration).

Then tune into the awards ceremony as Gerhard Gschwandner of Selling Power and Jonathan Farrington of the JF Corporation host the virtual award ceremony in a massive conference call.  You’ll not only hear the winners, but you’ll get to hear from a lot of the winners as they are informed of their win.  Last year was great fun, this year will be even better.

  1. First of all Paul, congratulations on your three nominations – richly deserved for the massive contribution you make every year to the sales space.

    Secondly, thank you for your very generous support for this year’s event: It is indeed bigger, and I really do believe it will be better than last year – if the amount of time and energy invested has anything to do with it!

    Good luck!

    My Very Best Wishes
