What are the UpCity “Best of” Awards?

UpCity’s "Best of" awards celebrate businesses in six specific service categories with the highest brand integrity and client satisfaction based on their UpCity Recommendability Rating. The six categories include Cloud Consulting (Top 25), Creative & Design (Top 150), Development (Top 125), IT Services (Top 25), Marketing & Advertising (Top 200), and Video Production (Top 75). Winners will be announced in October of 2021.

Who is Eligible to Win an UpCity “Best of” Award?

If your business is on UpCity and fits into one or more of the six categories, you’re in the running! All partners with a claimed profile, both free and paid, are eligible to win.

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 a "Best of" 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 “Best of” Awards Work?

Top partners in the category based on the UpCity Recommendability Rating will be awarded a 2021 "Best of" award. These awards are all-encompassing from a global standpoint, meaning there will not be separate awards for the U.S. and Canada, for example. Additionally, providers are eligible to win an award in multiple categories.

What Do I Get if I Win a “Best of” Award?

  • A "Best of [Category Name]” badge for your website

  • Inclusion on our winners announcement lists on UpCity.com

  • The option to have us write a customized announcement of your win that you can post on your blog or company news section of your website

What is Reviews for a Cause?

At UpCity, we pair our awards with a Reviews for a Cause campaign. This fall, we have chosen to support the American Stroke Association. For every review our partners get on UpCity before September 30, we’ll donate $5. Over the years, we have made donations totaling nearly $45,000 to The Sayers Center for African American Adoption, Meals on Wheels, Lemonade Day, Charity Water, and other causes.
