No other “best of” contest cares about getting it right as much as Orlando’s Best does, period. What sets Orlando’s Best apart is our relentless aim to find and recognize the very best companies and places that the Orlando metro area has to offer.
We’re able to find the best because we do it differently:
» No pay to play — participation is free.
» You choose the nominees; we don’t.
» Online reviews help determine the winners.
Gone are the days of the glorified popularity contest that allows companies to win with an endless supply of duplicate votes provided by employees. With Orlando’s Best, tricksters are unable to manipulate the results!
STEPPING UP OUR GAME
Did you know? We take pride in ensuring our results are fair and accurate.
#1: Text Message Registration
To reduce duplicates, our voting software utilizes text message verification. This security feature is a great boon to maintaining the integrity of your vote.
#2: BBB Partnership
Could a company truly be named the “best” if they’ve lost their accreditation with the Better Business Bureau? No, and neither should companies with negative BBB ratings.
Thanks to our local BBB office, which provided access to its expansive company data, we were able to filter out those that came up short.
HOW IT WORKS
There are three stages to Orlando’s Best, all of which may increase a contestant’s chances of winning:
September 4 – 15, 2023 — We launched by opening up the nominations to anyone living in the Orlando metro area.
October 9 – 13, 2023 — After determining the top nominees in each category, we opened up the voting round.
Nominees didn’t mess around either. Many got the word out to their customers on social media. In the end, we came away with the top three finalists in each category.
October 14, 2022 – October 13, 2023 — In reality, the contest started before it even started! We counted the reviews and ratings for each finalist from the previous twelve calendar months.
Announcing the Winners
November 30, 2023 — Once all the data was in, we added the vote total to the review score for each finalist. This final score determined the winners.
We were so grateful for the support we received over the past few months and we had a great time celebrating with all of you! Thank you!!
