Your business must be a registered CC or Pty.
YEARS IN TRADING
Your business must have been trading for a minimum of 24 months or more.
GROWTH AND SUSTAINABILITY
If your business is not growing, you are declining. Growth is the ultimate evidence that you are meeting the needs of a customer in a way that competitors aren’t.
If you believe that your business has great opportunity ahead of it and you need some support to make it happen, this campaign is relevant to you. Imagine hundreds of thousands of people made up of the consumers, businesses and government that you sell to everyday hearing about what you have to offer.
Being profiled on this radio station will change the course of your business into the future!
INNOVATION OR JOB CREATION ABILITY
What do you do differently? Innovation speaks to what is special about your business and how it sets you apart from your competitors. It speaks to what your customers see as valuable in your product or service.
What are the prospects of job creation in your business on one of two levels? Either that you will be able to generate many jobs going forward and/or that you will generate excellent skills in your employees going forward.
