Stevie Award Finalist!

Occasionally something fantastic happens and I cannot pass up the opportunity for shameless self promotion.  Today is one of those days.  I just found out that I am a finalist in the Stevie Awards Women In Business for the Marketing Campaign of the Year.  And what campaign is that centered around? Why our MOST for your Marketing program!  We know it is great, and our clients know it is great, but now the rest of the world will too!

Here is some more information from our press release:

Merrily Orsini, MSSW, creator of the MOST Monthly Marketing Communications program, was named a Finalist in the Marketing Campaign of the Year category in the 6th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. 

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word “crowned,” winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis hotel in New York on Friday, November 13.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A. and several other countries are expected to attend.   The presentations will be broadcast live on radio in the U.S.A. by the Business TalkRadio Network.

More than 1,100 entries were submitted this year for consideration in 54 categories, including Best Executive, Best Entrepreneur, and Best Community Involvement Program.  Merrily Orsini, MSSW, is a Finalist in the Marketing Campaign of the Year category.

Founder of parent company, corecubed, and creator of the MOST Monthly Marketing Communications program, Merrily Orsini, MSSW, is a member of the Board of Directors for the National Association of Home Care and Hospice and serves as the Chairman of the Private Duty Homecare Association.  Orsini comments,

“We are thrilled to be among such a distinguished group of finalists for the Stevie Awards.  The MOST program was developed as a direct response to a need we saw for home care agencies.  Home care agency owners simply do not have time in their day to spend creating a campaign to market their services.  With MOST, home care agencies have access to monthly educational marketing tools that touch their referral sources and targeted customers and keep their agency top of mind.  Customizable and geographically exclusive, our clients’ feedback is that the MOST monthly marketing program has allowed them to compete head-to-head with the national agencies and increase their billable hours.”

Finalists were chosen by business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging. Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs will select Stevie Award winners from among the Finalists during final judging.

“Being named a Finalist in The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is an important achievement,” said Michael Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards.  “It means that independent business executives have agreed that the nominee is worthy of recognition.  We congratulate all of the Finalists on their achievement and wish them well in the competition.”

Orsini continued, “To be recognized for innovation in this niche market is a great honor and we look forward to continuing to serve the home care industry with the best marketing solutions available.”
