Home security is a priority for the majority, in order to protect the memories, mementoes and priceless items in the home. At the same time, cost is always a concern, with many people unable to afford private home security services. It is for these reasons that there is a growing trend towards home security systems, which can be installed by the user and are much easier on the pocket.

One week left to vote for MOST

There is one week left to vote in the 9th annual MOST Awards survey with voting closing on 30 June 2017. The overall goal of the MOST Awards is to motivate media owners and media agencies to improve the quality of their service delivery, knowledge and innovation in the media sector. This year, the winners will be celebrated on 14 September 2017 at The Wanderers Club in Illovo, Johannesburg. To access the online survey click here, or go to and look for the “Click here to Vote” button at the top of the homepage.

Media agency employees are invited to rate the performance of the media owner sales teams with whom they have frequent contact, and vice versa. The MOST Awards survey asks respondents to select the companies that they wish to vote for and requires that they are scored against a number of specific performance criteria. Companies are then ranked according to this data.

Three reasons to vote
  1. This is your chance to give the feedback to your media agency or owner partners through an anonymous platform to create a better working environment for the entire industry.
  2. Improved service delivery, knowledge and innovation in the media sector translates into a better return on investment for brand owners.
  3. Maintaining a robust and independent media is vital to the future of South Africa and media freedom rests on the bottom line and support from advertisers.

“Don’t miss out on the chance to vote in this year’s MOST Awards survey. To win a MOST Award is a highly valued accolade and the efficacy of utilising insights from the in-depth research reports to improve business performance has been proven over the years. The quality of the research results increases as more people participate in the survey. This is your opportunity to help our industry grow,” says Sandra Gordon, CEO of Wag the Dog Publishers and founder of The MOST Awards.
