West Simsbury, CT (PRWEB) October 16, 2006
http://www.webaward.org -- The Web Marketing Association is pleased to announce the Best Insurance Web Site Winner as part of the 10th annual international WebAward Competition, the Internet’s premier website award competition.
“Insurance industry websites are very competitive in terms of web development,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Insurance websites continue to lack in innovation and use of technology. Websites that fall behind the industry standards can improve by leveraging the judges’ feedback following the WebAward competition and elevate their sites to attract a larger web audience.”
Insurance websites were judged on the same seven criteria including:
- Copy writing
- Ease of use
The overarching goal of the WebAward Competition is to provide a forum to recognize the people and organizations responsible for developing the most effective insurance websites on the Net today.
This year’s best web sites along with past WebAward winners in the insurance industry are:
