Each Localista Magazine local edition sponsors The Best of the city's popularity contest. The contest covers the Who's, What's and Where's of each city.
Each winner gets to use the "Best Of" badge on marketing materials, in-store and on their web site. PLUS: Three lucky winners will be entered into a drawing to receive an advertising and marketing package worth over $2500. Is that incentive enough? :)
Simple, the most votes in each category wins the category.
Again, simple, first go add your business to your city's best of page. Then encourage your friends, family and customers to go vote for your by simply entering your business name (just like you did).
Select the closest Local Edition to you and then from the top menu click "Opportunities" and then "The Best"
