San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2012
MojoPages will award the best businesses across the U.S. in different categories during the weeks to come. The categories that will be awarded are Best Florist, Best Wedding Venue, Best Handyman and Best Carpet Cleaner.
Any businesses in these categories are eligible to compete, but ultimately, the voters decide who the frontrunners are in each city. Right now, competition for Best San Diego Florist is heating up, while competition for Best Chicago Capet Cleaner is showing significant activity as is the competition for Best Los Angeles Wedding Venue.
Voting takes place from small cities to large metropolitan areas, with the most popular markets being Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, Orlando and San Diego.
To determine winners, MojoPages assigns each company a “Mojo” score, which is calculated based on reviews from sites and users throughout the Internet. Credible reviews have a greater weight on the score than reviews with questionable credibility. Businesses are then ranked from best to worst, with the top in a category scoring bragging rights as the MojoPages Award Winner.
Voting for Best Florist will end on April 21, while voting for Best Wedding Venue will end April 28. Best Handyman voting will end on May 5, and Best Carpet Cleaner voting will end May 12.
Business owners have already started campaigning on behalf of their businesses. The most common strategies used by business owners to get votes includes sending emails to customers, requesting votes on social networks and even installing a “Vote for Us” badge on their websites.
