All nominees have the opportunity to enhance their listing on the ballot. Enhanced listings provide additional features by showing your business’ address, contact info, and direct links to your social media pages. The cost is $99 per category.
By enhancing your listing on the ballot, you will provide our readers with the following information:
- Photo (800 x 450px – Landscape)
- Brief summary of your business (150 words max)
- Phone number
- Facebook page
- Twitter handle
- Instagram handle
- YouTube page
- TikTok Handle
- Snapchat Handle
- LinkedIn Profile
- Vimeo Channel
And this year we are able to offer a special link to your enhanced listing page. This page will send people to a page with all your information AND a button for them to vote for you. We will send you the link when we let you know your enhanced listing is up. Also, if you use the Facebook share button at the top of your Enhanced Listing, it will help you send people directly to your enhanced listing page with your vote button!
Introducing Short Links and QR Codes!!
Normally, to reach this page you would need a lengthy url such as: https://harrisburgmagazine.com/test-ballot/#/gallery/317338423? group=408636
This year we will provide you with a special, branded URL that you can use to send people directly to your enhanced listing page. The URL will start with stbvote.com and then have your name (or part of it) after a back slash. For example, for Darwin’s Shoe Store it would be stbvote.com/darwin.
And with a QR code, you can speed up the process for people in your business. Most cameras have the ability to scan QR codes with the camera. Just point your camera at the code, and the option to click on a link is provided. Hang up the QR code in your business and fast track people directly to your enhanced listing page!
And Consider Purchasing a Random Banner!
Because banners can be linked to an enhanced listing, we decided to offer “random banners.” These are banners that will be placed randomly on the ballot (rather than specifying a specific category). Random banners are a fantastic way to remind voters who come to the ballot for another reason of your nomination and to vote for you. Due to the low price, random banners will need to be kept simple with only the name of your business and category nominated. Additional information will not be needed since the person can click on it and it will go to your enhanced listing, which includes all the necessary information.
