The Canadian Reseller Choice Awards
Every year e-ChannelNews, ecnTV and ChannelBUZZ survey 8,000 Canadian VARs, MSPs and ITSPs to vote for their favourite vendors and distributors on about 90 categories. Over 500 vendors are nominated every year. This is the largest such channel survey in Canada and truly a great opportunity for the entire channel.
Vendors and distributors get feedback (good or bad); and the winners get recognition with an award for a job well done. For others, they get the chance to improve for the next year.
If you win the Reseller Choice Award, it says that the channel appreciates what you are doing and thinks you are the best of the best!
If you win, you will get lots of FREE national channel news media coverage from e-ChannelNews, ecnTV and ChannelBUZZ.
Vendor Tips for the Reseller Choice Awards:
1) ENSURE YOU ARE NOMINATED ASAP: Click link at the bottom of this page and look to see if your company name is already listed. If it is, you do not need to do anything further. It is FREE to be nominated.
2) If your company is NOT listed, nominate your company. Complete the voting process by clicking the link at the bottom of this page, adding your company name in the field "other" in the appropriate category and fill in your contact information. This will not count as a vote, but it will get your company nominated. Also ensure that you are nominated in the appropriate category! If your company does not fit into any category, you may email us and suggest a new category for possible inclusion in the future.
3) INVITE YOUR RESELLERS TO VOTE FOR YOU! Post the Reseller Choice Awards banner ad on your partner website and/or send an invitation to your Canadian resellers to encourage them to vote. You can request the banner ads and voting link by simply emailing us. We strongly recommend that you push your partners to vote for your company. Each reseller = one vote. The vendor with the most votes will win the top spot. Every vote matters!
4) PLEASE BE A SPONSOR TO SUPPORT THIS IMPORTANT ACTIVITY: Consider providing a prize as a Bronze Sponsor! We offer prize draws to encourage resellers to vote and to thank them for voting. The resellers appreciate it and you will get some FREE publicity. Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you would like to be a sponsor and provide a prize. And ask about other sponsorship opportunities to leverage this huge channel PR opportunity.
5) The winner of each category may request a video interview with ecnTV during the Awards Ceremony. This interview will be posted on www.ecntv.cafor a full year! Just about everyone in the channel will see your video! A great way to thank the channel for voting you #1 and generate some positive channel PR. You may also request the video to embed on your website and emails. E-channelnews.com and channelbuzz.ca will also be there to conduct interviews. (Note: ecnTV interviews will be held between 6pm and 8:30pm, typically, just after the vendor wins the award. See www.ecntv.cafor last year's video interviews or simply call or email us for further questions)
6) If you are a winner or finalist, you may also provide us with a press release and we will post it for you for FREE on www.e-channelnews.com (and link to your video). ChannelBUZZ will also post your news. This is a great opportunity to get some added publicity and also thank the resellers for voting and for your company.
