Parent company SmartWork Media takes home a total of eight honors in TABPI awards.

NEW YORK — SmartWork Media, parent company of INSTORE magazine, cleaned up in the recent TABPI awards, winning a total of eight awards for three publications to make the company one of the biggest winners of any media group participating in the competition.

Awards highlights included INSTORE managing editor Eileen McClelland’s two Gold awards for best feature (“8 Holiday Customer Types”) and best how-to story (“Dump Your Dogs”). In addition, SmartWork Media’s magazine for the eyecare business, INVISION, won a total of four awards on its own, making it one of the most honored publications in the TABPI (Trade Association Business Press International) competition.

In the competition’s most prestigious category, best single issue of a publication, all three SmartWork publications were winners, with INDESIGN taking the silver award for its May 2015 edition, INVISION earning ninth place for its March 2015 edition, and INSTORE’s October 2015 edition earning the 11th spot.

In addition to the best single issue honor, INVISION’s awards also included a silver medal for best how-to feature (“The Art of Adding On”), a ninth-place finish for best feature story for “The Year of Reading Seriously”, written by the staff of INVISION, plus an honorable mention for best feature design for Group Design Editor Victor Cantal for the story “Love Work”.

The latest awards haul brings SmartWork Media’s total number of honors in international publishing competitions up to 91.

Earlier in the year, INSTORE was also named to TABPI’s “Big 95” list, highlighting the 95 most acclaimed business-to-business publications since TABPI launched its awards competition in 2004. INSTORE placed sixth on that list and INDESIGN was 29th.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
