#480: We really wish to join as a company, unfortunately we don’t have marketing budget available to submit.
The A' Design Award is unmatched for the series of services granted as well as opportunities provided for publicity and dissemination of awarded works. Publicity is like the blood of a company, if you cut publicity, you kill your company. If you do not have marketing budget available to submit, you should cut all other expenses and invest in making a submission, especially considering the fact that you could use our preliminary score to have a better understanding of your chances of winning, free of charge. A' Design Award is good for publicity, and the mere fact of winning a design award (placing the design award winner logo) could actually increase the sales of your products, furthermore we pitch winners to many publications which could create advertising opportunities and placements, but most importantly, by winning the award you will have a reason to communicate and engage current and prospective clients. Winning the A' Design Award will be fresh marketing blood for your company, it will energise your marketing department by giving them a reference point to engage clients, consumers and customers. Before you think of a budget, please double, triple, quadruple check the design prize. Learn what you would be getting and afterwards decide if it is worth it, divide the number to the number of days in the year to have a better feeling, but you should definitely have a budget to submit. In the worst case scenario, ask your designer to submit on your behalf; designers pay much less than companies, and also consider digital nomination if you are really do not have the funds.
