Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 08, 2012
GrowMap has been voted a Community Choice honoree in the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards. GrowMap achieved the designation as the result of receiving top votes from the small business community in the popular voting segment of the awards. GrowMap was one of the top five popular vote getters in the category of News Outlets.
The Small Business Influencer Awards honor those who are influential to small businesses in North America, through the products, services, knowledge, information, or support they provide to the small business market.
The Awards are designed to recognize the unsung heroes of small businesses - those who support and encourage entrepreneurs and small business owners, and help them achieve success and stay successful.
The Community Choice designation recognizes those whose communities have supported them with top votes.
Says Anita Campbell, CEO of Small Business Trends and one of the co-founders of the Awards, "Influencers are those who play crucial roles in the small business ecosystem, but who often are in the background. Many of the Community Choice honorees are themselves small business owners, entrepreneurs or small businesses."
Awards co-founder Ramon Ray of SmallBizTechnology.com notes, "Being recognized by the community as a Community Choice honoree also reinforces with employees that their dedication and hard work has paid off. The Awards are intended to provide that added boost in motivation and morale that can make a big difference in results."
BlackBerry is the title sponsor of the 2012 Small Business Influencer Awards. Other sponsors who have provided their support include Infusionsoft, Vocus and GetResponse.
