It’s February, which means it’s time to start planning the B2B Marketing Awards 2012. It’s a long time until November, when the awards ceremony takes place, but there’s a lot that needs to happen in that period.
The first thing that we need to describe is the categories – which ones should we offer this year? Every year we constantly tweak this list, as different techniques come in and out of fashion, in order to keep it current and reflective of the activity that’s currently going on out there.
So which categories would you like to see? Below is the list of categories from last year. Is it missing anything? How could it be improved?
The only that I could see that was potentially missing was ‘best thought leadership campaign’. Is this of interest?
Your constructive thoughts and musings would be appreciated… if only to tell us that we’ve done a good job! Thanks in advance.
