Congratulations …
AWAI’s “B2B Rising Star!” Competition Winners Announced

Congratulations to all the winners of the “B2B Rising Star!” competition:

Grand-Prize Winner: Suzie Bowers

Suzie’s prize package includes …

B2B guru Ed Gandia has this to say about Suzie’s effort: “Although we received several excellent entries, Suzie’s ad copy was the most aligned with the target audience (Realtors). The ad really spoke their language and focused on the real, tangible and believable benefits the audience could expect from using the product. Just as important, every word of copy pulled its own weight, which is critical in a short ad.”

And from Suzie: “Winning the ‘B2B Rising Star!’ competition is really the ‘See-you-at-the-top’ moment for me!”

2nd-Place: Rachel Foster, Debbie McCormick, and Heather Russell

The 2nd-place winners will receive recordings of the three months of one-on-one coaching sessions that Steve, Ed, and Pete are doing with the grand-prize winner, plus group coaching with their fellow prize winners. They’ll also receive a complimentary copy of Steve Slaunwhite’s new B2B copywriting program.

Runners Up: Liz Beeman, Janice Crago, Donna Kuck, Brian Lunde, Jan Maguire, Scott Sheldon, Teresa Sherry, Maurine Smith, and Gina Vick

Each runner up will receive a complimentary copy of Steve Slaunwhite’s new B2B copywriting program.
