Website of the Year Awards 09 - ENTRANT

I don't normally post at the weekend, but I received an email late last night with some great news...

... we are an entrant of The Website of the Year Awards 2009 by The Good Web Guide.

The Good Web Guide is the online guide to the best sites on the internet.They have taken the slog and guesswork out of finding what is best about life online.

As a small business, the recognition of
our website for this prestigious award is great news. We don’t have an advertising budget like a big fish, we’re a small fish. In fact we don’t have any advertising budget so I guess we’re officially a really tiny fish in a massive ocean in the online world! But from small things great things grow. You’ve heard of the acorn analogy haven’t you...?

Made With Love was set up by myself (Clare) as a student in some dingy student halls in Liverpool, armed with just £50 & ‘Dreamweaver For Dummies’ (The bible!), so much hard work—I can’t bring myself to type it, gritty determination & self belief with a dream of the impossible.

As an niche online boutique we are naturally hidden away in the vast world of cyber space. It’s not easy to find us, but when you do, you love us. We have a loyal following of customers whom we value very much. This is how we have built our customer base & how we base our business model—we’ve had to. The recognition of winning such an award would blow our minds & would be an amazing platform to get our brand out there.

So, if you like what we do, please tell The Good Web Guide why you think we deserve to win.
The winning website is announced on Friday 6th November 2009. We will post about the results soon after. If we win it may be a few days later... as we will most probably have raging hangovers! It’s not everyday you win one of the most prestigious awards in the online retail world!!
