I want to challenge you to change your success trajectory by purchasing one category entry into the TORI resume awards today.
Hang with me for the logic behind this super low-cost purchase, as it’s incredibly sound!
The Toast of the Resume Industry (TORI) awards, is the longest-running professional resume writing competition worldwide.
But more importantly, it has been referred to by award nominees and winners as:
The lowest cost and highest ROI way to grow your business, seemingly overnight.
Sharon Williams said:
70% of my business comes from CDI and people seeing my TORI-winning resumes.
Amy Adler said:
The TORI was a game-changer for my business. Almost immediately, I had more engaged clients from the market that I am continually seeking to attract.
Gayle Howard said:
I honestly believe winning a TORI award has been instrumental in catapulting my business to the next level.
Jennifer Rushton said:
The TORI Awards have increased my client base dramatically. Since winning the TORI for Best Technical Resume, I have had a flood of tech clients wanting their resumes written.
So if you could possibly get that level of traction with a $40 investment, what’s stopping you?
You might be surprised to know that with a crowded market of professional resume writers worldwide, we’ve never seen more than 70 people enter in a year!
Now think on that… there are 10 categories, each with five chances to be nominated and three changes to win. That means that if you were to actually enter every category you would have 50 chances at nomination, and 30 chances at winning.
It boggles the mind that this low-hanging fruit is right there and many don’t even reach out to try to grab it!
That’s why I am writing this post today — because I am hoping to change the trajectory and give you some strategy around registering for one TORI category today!
So let’s take a look:
#1 – You Won’t be in the Dark & Can Plan Effectively
With 39 days to go before TORI registration closes, buying one category today ensures there are no surprises on the preparation and submission process. You’ll read the information and have plenty of time to strategize and submit.
#2 – You’ll Make it Real
Making a commitment to something is a powerful first step. Granted, $40 won’t take a bite, but it will let you have one foot into the circle and thus one step closer to making it happen. Don’t think about it – act to make it happen!
#3 – You’ll Inadvertently Up Your Game Just by Focusing on It
If you think “you can’t do that” in terms of TORI resume design and writing, you’re wrong. Last year I provided business consulting to a resume writer who was highly qualified but not into all that design. When she, like so many others, wanted to know what the secret sauce was to the success of some members, I pointed to the TORIs. (Top earners almost all have at least one win under their belt). Not only did this individual dive in, get creative, study winners, and build that TORI muscle, but went on to win in a very competitive category!
It doesn’t matter where you are at today, but once you lock it in, you’ll start looking, learning, and absorbing. And as my client pointed out, it’s exciting to see how much more opened up with the design and writing process, when space was made for it!
#4 – You’ll Take a Step Toward Explosive Business Growth
There is nothing worse than the hills and valleys of being an entrepreneur! The constant need to market, convince, and close prospects can be exhausting and stressful. So, if we tell you that the TORIs really are an easier, softer way — an exclusive ticket to business growth without high effort — it would only make sense to get your feet wet in the competition. When you buy one category today, you are on your way toward changing your business cycle forever if you win or get nominated.
#5 – You’ll Still Have Plenty of Time
The #1 deal breaker we’ve seen for resume writers not entering is that they wait until the last moment, something inevitably comes up, and they don’t get to enter. Again, there are 39 days left before registration closes and that’s plenty of time for you to know what is going on, plan your time (and block for emergencies), and enter in 2019!
The Future Lies in Your Hands & You Can Begin to Change it Today!
Let me be honest, the TORIs is not a profit center for CDI. In the past we’ve thought about ending it because so few people try their hand at it despite how much effort goes into helping guide toward the high ROI of wins and nominations. So, why do we continue to invest our time and keep hitting you over the head to enter?
Because I’ve seen the massive ROI of the TORIs and also experienced it first-hand!
I can’t count the number of resume writers who have told me (and been quoted on the site) attesting to the huge difference a TORI nomination or win has made for them.
I know that resume writing awards are one of the key components that made it SO EASY for me to gain prospect trust and excitement, and close sales when I had a career services practice. I may have great selling and packaging strategies, but it was my ability to design award-winning resumes that brought them to me in the first place. I wouldn’t have had a 6-figure business in the 90s without resume awards!
I’ve seen how all my most profitable private clients have a TORI win in common.
I’ve watched each year how many struggle and invest tens of thousands in marketing, yet never get the results one $40 TORI registration might attain.
So, we create a lot of lessons, how-to videos from former TORI winners, and marketing pieces to get past your thoughts, beliefs, and busy-ness in order to help guide you to this big win!
Not everyone can win on their first try, but any professional resume writer can ultimately become a TORI nominee or winner!
But it doesn’t happen until you at least put yourself out there and try.
I’m urging you to make 2019 your year!
Purchase at least one category today and get this process started!
You’ll then be locked in knowing you have until July 16th to purchase and submit more categories. (All initial registration closes on June 27th).
