We’re thrilled to announce that both CorpNet.com and our very own Co-Founder and CEO Nellie Akalp have been nominated for the prestigious 2013 Small Business Influencer Awards! This is actually the third year Nellie has been nominated, and last year she was a Top 100 Champion, and the second year that CorpNet has been nominated.

The 2013 Small Business Influencer Awards honor the people, companies, news outlets and apps that are helping small businesses like you do more. Nellie, who frequently blogs for well-respected sites like BusinessWeek, Mashable and Small Business Trends, makes it her goal to help small businesses succeed.

“Honestly, I can only say that I am so humbled by the opportunity and honor again, and it’s pure validation for me that consistency and having integrity with whatever you set your mind to pays off,” Nellie said.

How You Can Help

Right now, the Awards are accepting nominations and votes until September 9, 2013. We would love for you to help CorpNet and Nellie win! You can vote once per day per nominee, so please set up a voting reminder on the site and vote daily!

You can also leave a comment below each entry telling why you think we should win. How have we helped you succeed as a business owner? Through our business filing services? With advice from our blog? Tell everyone why you love us!

Once the voting period ends, winners will be selected based on number of votes and comments, as well as weigh-in from the panel of judges. The Top 100 Champions will be honored at an awards ceremony in New York City in October. Let’s make sure CorpNet is there!
