Yolo County Readers’ Choice [for 2024]

by | Mar 31, 2024 | Community

The Results Are In!

If you voted in the Best of Yolo County Readers’ Choice awards, then now is the time to pay attention!

The Davis Enterprise has finished collecting and tabulating your votes and published a beautiful magazine in the March 20, 2024 newspaper. Hopefully, you were able to grab yourself a copy. The Newsbeat in Downtown Davis is a great spot to purchase your copy of the Davis Enterprise.

Be sure to have a look at the businesses featured in this magazine. I don’t believe how many of my clients are listed. It is really quite amazing. It is a pleasure working with them and bringing their websites and online marketing efforts together. Very proud to have a number of my clients mentioned as winners in a number of categories.

Hopefully, back in November and December of 2023, you took a bit of time to add your entries for the best businesses in Yolo County. You had to vote online. There were no paper ballots for the 2024 Best of Yolo County Readers’ Choice Awards. When voting, you needed to vote for at least 15 businesses from Davis, Winters, Woodland, West Sacramento, or anywhere in-between.

As I mentioned before, voting for the best business in Yolo is a tough job. There are so many businesses to choose from. Automotive, Food and Drink, Shopping and Retail, and many more categories were on the ballot. It certainly wasn’t an easy task.

Well, we are glad you were able to make the tough choices and cast your votes.

Readers’ Choice Award

2021 – 2022 – 2023

Best Photographer in Yolo County

I would humbly like to mention that Abaton Consulting won FIRST PLACE as Best Photographer in Yolo County. I am truly honored for this award. What is even more exciting is that I was selected as the best photographer for three years in a row.

For 2024, there has been a tremendous change; the choice of “Best Photographer in Yolo County” is no longer available. That means my valued clients cannot vote for for me this year.  The good news is, until the choice for “Best Photographer” returns, I will continue to be the best photographer in Yolo County (wink – wink).

I continue to be blessed that I was able to move my business forward and incorporate more photography services into my client support options. I am still seeing tremendous growth in the business portrait and commercial photography areas.

I am looking forward to 2024 and the many opportunities the year will bring.

Choose Your Favorite Yolo County Business

Unfortunately, the deadline for voting has passed (January 14, 2024). The polls are closed.

Now would be a good time to start visiting your Yolo county businesses and picking your favorites for next year.

Be sure to stay tuned for the results.
