What are the UpCity Excellence Awards?

UpCity’s National and Local Excellence Awards celebrate businesses with the highest brand integrity and client satisfaction based on their UpCity Recommendability Rating. All National and Local winners for both the United States and Canada will be announced in April 2022.

Who is Eligible to Win an UpCity Excellence Award?

If your business is on UpCity, you’re in the running! All partners with a claimed profile, both free and paid, are eligible to win an Excellence Award.

How Do I Win?

It’s all about your UpCity Recommendability Rating, and 40% of that number comes from your UpCity reviews. Getting more high-quality reviews is the single best way to qualify for an Excellence Award. Our advice is to continue to gather reviews, stay diligent with your SEO initiatives, and keep producing high-quality work that your customers can depend on. You can track your progress by logging in to UpCity and clicking on “My Recommendability.”

How Do National Excellence Awards Work?

B2B Service Providers in the 99th percentile of the UpCity Recommendability Rating will be awarded a 2022 UpCity National Excellence Award. There will be two sets of winners—one for the US and one for Canada. If your business has locations in both countries, your national award will be based on where your company is headquartered.

How Do Local Excellence Awards Work?

Top B2B Service Providers in the 95th percentile or above in their market in the US and Canada have the opportunity to win a Local Excellence Award. Providers must have at least a 5.3 rating to qualify for a Local Excellence Award, but the bar may be higher depending on their market. If none of the providers in a local area meet the minimum required score, no awards will be given. If your business includes multiple locations, it is possible to win more than one Local Excellence Award.

What is Reviews for a Cause?

The Reviews for a Cause program is one way UpCity gives back. Every year during Excellence Awards season (January through March), we ask our partners to collect as many reviews on their UpCity profiles as possible. For every review, we give $5 (sometimes more) to a selected charitable organization.
