Reward with the Women’s Choice Award® Seal of Recommendation
City, State, July 23, 2013- As the leading advocacy for female consumers, WomenCertified® is delighted to honor the SINGER® brand with the 2013 Women’s Choice Award for America’s Best for Home in the Sewing Machine category. This award designation is based on a national survey among 5,000 plus women who were asked to select the brands they would most highly recommend to others.
“We are excited to be awarded the Women’s Choice Award® Seal of Recommendation”, said Katrina Helmkamp, CEO of SVP Worldwide, producer of the SINGER® brand. “We are passionate about providing sewing machines that are reliable and easy to use. It is an honor to be a part of so many women’s lives and encourage sewing as a means to express their creativity and love for their family and friends.”
Today’s U.S. female consumer values the opinion of others and over half of all women consider their role as a broadcaster, responsible for helping others make smart choices (2012 Fleishman Hillard Study), so it’s not surprising that major brands are focusing on delivering a customer experience women will love. The Women’s Choice Award has set the standard for helping women make smarter choices by collectively identifying the brands most recommended and trusted by women and those that deliver a customer experience worthy of her recommendation.
- 92% of Americans will seek out the recommendation of others before making a major decision (Neilson Research 2012)
- 9 out of 10 women would ‘definitely’ trust a brand more if it carried the Women’s Choice Award (MedeliaMonitor 2013)
According to Delia Passi, WomenCertified®, Inc., founder and author of Winning the Toughest Customer: The Essential Guide to Selling to Women, the Women’s Choice Award honors brands that have demonstrated exceptional service in meeting the needs of women and that receive an extraordinary recommendation rating by women. “Recognizing SINGER® as the top sewing machine brand helps ‘women guide other women’ to make smart choices” she said.
