Best Financial Services Websites to be Named by Web Marketing Association



The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best legal websites in the world as part of their 17th annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at www.webaward.org. The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including bank, credit union, insurance, investment, mutual funds and financial services websites, based on the seven criteria of a successful web site. The deadline for Financial Services web sites to enter to be judged is May 31, 2013.

  
Websites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy writing and ease of use. Each WebAward entry in the Financial Services category is judged against other financial services entries and then against an overall standard of excellence.
All financial services entrants benefit from receiving valuable feedback in terms of their specific criteria scores compared against the average scores for their industry. They also may receive specific comments from the WebAward’s professional judging panel on their Web site development efforts.

Winners of a WebAward in the financial services categories will also receive:
·         Handsome statue or certificate of achievement
·         Increased visibility for their company
·         Marketing opportunity to promote the company website to the media
·         Links to your site from the highly ranked WebAward site to help SEO
·         A highlight for your resume.
·         Admiration of peers, friends and co-workers
Each year, the Web Marketing Association names the Best of Industry for the various financial services categories based on the score they receive from the WebAward judges.
