Our company is still teeming with excitement after celebrating our eight year anniversary a few short weeks ago. The team here at Lemonlight is more motivated than ever and businesses like UpCity are taking note of our blossoming success this year.
UpCity, a reputable resource that helps over 1.5 million businesses choose the most trustworthy B2B service providers, just announced their annual Local and National Excellence awards for the year. We aren’t even halfway through the year, so we’re overjoyed to be selected as a National Excellence award recipient, not to mention, for the third year in a row!
Given how easy it is for anybody to review any business these days, UpCity created the “Recommendability Rating” as an alternative, thorough process to determine the validity of reviews.
UpCity’s Recommendability Rating requires so much more than just the simple blue check verification process used for social media. The rating takes a variety of factors into account such as engagement, quality, and quantity of reviews which all help UpCity objectively decide who is credible and most recommend-able. More than 84,000 businesses were reviewed this year (up 17% from last year) and only 150 businesses were selected.
While it’s truly an honor to be among the top 1% of UpCity service providers on the National level, UpCity also awarded us with the Local Excellence award. Although Excellence is our number one priority, community engagement is extremely important to us; to be so highly regarded by businesses in our backyard means just as much to us as being recognized on the national level.
We have been able to maintain a nearly-perfect rating of 4.9 for over a year thanks to the reviews our wonderful clients submitted. Here is a review from one of our favorite clients:
“I have been working with Lemonlight for about 7 years now. They are always incredibly flexible and solutions oriented when it comes to production and I know I can count on them for whatever I need. They have consistently been my best production partner and a life saver. No matter what my clients needs are, I have always felt confident that Chad, Hope, Daniel, and the rest of the team will get me what I need.” David Adesman, Lemonlight Client.
The UpCity CEO and Founder Dan Olson also shared some kind words for us:
“We are delighted to present Lemonlight an Excellence award this year. It is not only a fantastic achievement to win the last 3 years, but an opportunity that was possible because of their happy clients. We are so proud to have Lemonlight as an UpCity partner!”
UpCity further incentivizes clients to submit reviews through their Reviews for a Cause (RFC) campaign. Through the RFC campaign, UpCity donates $5 (or more) for every review submitted to their RFC recipient of the year. As a result, your reviews not only gave us the prestigious award, they also contributed to a $10,290 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. How cool is that?
We are endlessly grateful to UpCity for this award and opportunity. We aspire to be astounding for our incredible clientele. Thank you for inspiring and supporting us on our ongoing journey to serve you.
