There are just 24 more days to enter the TORI 2019 resume awards.
I was speaking to TORI winner Marie Plett on Thursday, and she reiterated the successes she has had from her nominations and wins. With the immense value it has had to her business, she urged me to again share it with you this year.
I knew you would want to learn how her $200 TORI investment has earned her approximately $30,000-60,000 in additional revenue in a year! (Subsequently, she’s had continued results from her 2018 wins).
I made the most lucrative marketing investment in the 14-year history of my company when I entered the 2017 TORI Awards. Since I submitted resumes for all 8 categories, I only paid $200 for all my entries. Of those 8 submissions, 6 went on to win nominations and subsequent TORI Awards.
Since then, I consistently get at least one ready-to-order client per month, willing to spend an average of $2,500 for my services. They have only heard about me through the TORI Awards and nowhere else. These clients often place online orders without any kind of phone engagement.
But let me tell you about the surprise type of customer that tends to contact me on a (roughly) quarterly basis. These are clients who have already worked with TORI-winning resume writers. Sometimes, they want to change out their existing writer for the new hot shot. Other times, they return to the website of their existing writer, see that they won a TORI Award in 2011, and then go look at the TORI Award page out of curiosity to find me, the newest winner. When they find out their writer hasn’t won an award since 2011, they call on someone who has.
That’s right – you can’t rest on your laurels. Discerning executive job seekers want the newest and hottest champions. Each and every year.
These ‘TORI-snob’ clients have opened another steady revenue stream. Again – I don’t need to pitch them. They see the awards and the samples, and they are ready to order.
My $200 investment has already made me tens of thousands of dollars from customers who are already excited and ready to buy my services – no sales pitch needed. I can’t even calculate how many sales my TORI Awards have generated by convincing on-the-fence prospects to invest thousands of dollars for my services.
Unfortunately, this year, due to a family health crisis, I will be unable to submit 8 samples. Frankly, if you want to push me off the throne, now is the time to do it before I go back into full force for 2019. Regardless, I’ll be submitting a few samples because I know (just like all the other competitors who enter year after year) exactly how important it is to submit as many resumes as I can. EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR.
Push your limits, bring your A-game, and show the world just how amazing you can be. Your bank account and the reputation of your business can only stand to benefit.
But, don’t look at these multi-time winners and think it’s not for you. Every year we see new names show up on the nomination and winners list.
What would it mean to your business if the next name on the TORI nomination or winners list was yours?
