Small Business Book Awards 2013: Become a Sponsor

Small Business Book Awards 2012 logoThe Small Business Book Awards, presented by Small Business Trends, return January 29, 2013.  This will be the 5th year to recognize and celebrate books written for entrepreneurs and small business owners, CEOs and their teams.

As I write this, the Small Business Book Awards website is currently being updated for 2013 (the 2012 logo is to the right).  This year our traditional categories of awards will return for:

  • Marketing books
  • Social media books
  • Startup books
  • Management books
  • Tech books
  • Economics books
What’s New This Year
We’re excited to announce the following new categories will be added this year:
  • Self help books
  • Personal finance books
  • Leadership books /memoirs
  • All time favorite books (business books published in earlier years can be nominated regardless of year of publication in the all-time favorites category)
  • Book resources (this category is not books per se, but will include publishing technology, publishers, book coaches, publicists, book retailers, and other resources that support  authors and the publishing industry)

Books are not limited to traditional print books. With the explosive growth in electronic books and ebooks, we welcome ebooks in all formats (including PDFs, Kindle, Nook, Adobe Digital, iBooks and Google books) — and print books, of course.

Nominating a book is free – nominations open January 29, 2013 for the 2013 Small Business Book Awards.  Nominations are made directly on the Small Business Book Awards website.

Once books pass through the nomination process, the small business community will visit the Book Awards website to cast votes to decide the best.  Last year nearly 100,000 votes were cast.

Sponsorship Opportunities

This is an excellent opportunity for brands to get in front of Small Business Trends’ targeted small business audience as sponsors.  As a sponsor, you will get prime visibility throughout the Awards.  The Awards attract not only authors, but book lovers, entrepreneurs who buy books to learn, and small business owners and CEOs looking to expand their own knowledge and educate their staffs for greater success.

A limited number of sponsorships are available.  Sponsorship opportunities are reasonable and start at $2,000 and up.
