Best B2B Web site to be Named

WMA_20th_iconThe Web Marketing Association is looking for the best B2B Websites in the world as part of their 20th annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at the WebAward Web site. The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including business to business, based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site. The deadline for B2B web sites to enter to be judged is May 31, 2016.
“B2B websites are important to almost every industry,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Websites that target other businesses focus on the technical needs of their users. Many of these websites provide a resource for industry trends as well as providing product information. Having that aspect of your B2B website reviewed is just one benefit of participating in the annual WebAward program”.

Web sites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy writing and ease of use. Each WebAward entry in the advertising category is judged against other advertising entries in its industry category and then against an overall standard of excellence.
