We have been meaning to debunk another of Weierman's untruths for a long time, but did not get around to it. Well here it is now - better later than never.
Victory Forge and their 3 boosters (yes that is all they have) have been going around and telling the world that VF has received an award from the United States Commerce Association (USCA). Before we jump to discuss what this award really means, here is what the USCA does.
This is an organization which is supported by its members. So VF pays dues to the USCA. In return, USCA promotes its members with public relations, advertising and marketing. They then give out these "Best of Local Business" awards to showcase their members. These awards are given to their members and are basically nothing but marketing ploys. Also, the USCA is a for-profit organization. So good people, do not buy this other lie and gimmick that these folks at VF are selling.
What does this award really mean? It means that VF paid their dues to the USCA who in turn is fulfilling their mission to promote their business. They do this by using the term award, which means absolutely nothing.
Try again Weierman.
