The largest online referral network for small businesses, Alignable.com is announcing the results of its month-long North American search for local business leaders who’ve gone above and beyond to help peers during the COVID Crisis. Today, Alignable’s network is honoring Bill Wilson of Peoples Products as a 2021 Alignable Local Business Person of The Year! This is the third year Alignable has hosted this contest and the participation levels for 2021’s competition topped 2020’s by a monumental 800%.
During a time where at least two-thirds of small businesses have regularly reported suffering negative effects from COVID issues, it’s clear with this outpouring of support just how much small business owners wanted to recognize the extraordinary efforts of their peers.
“To see so many business owners celebrate their peers was awesome” said Eric Groves, Alignable’s Co-Founder and CEO. “This frenetic level of participation is a testament to the strength of the business relationships forged and reinforced over the past year.”
We’re Stronger Together
“Our community means a great deal to me and, like many of my peers, I have gladly helped my fellow small business owners overcome a number of obstacles during this tough time,” said Wilson. “I am beyond honored to receive this award and very grateful for the heartwarming support from my peers. We’re all stronger together.”
Wilson and other 2021 Local Business People of The Year in communities across the U.S. and Canada have received badges on their Alignable profiles, in recognition of their contributions. In past years, the awareness generated through this contest has helped drive additional connections, prospects, and new business for many winners.
