Culver City, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2011
mWEBB Communications, Inc., (http://www.mwebbcom.com) has won the Stevie Award for Communications/PR Campaign of the Year, Marketing/Consumer Services in the 9th Annual American Business AwardsSM. mWEBB received the award for its public relations campaign for the launch of AutoMD.com, the most comprehensive and unbiased free online automotive repair resource.
In winning the Stevie, mWEBB Communications joins other respected companies receiving a 2011 American Business Award, including Apple, Cisco, Amazon.com, Hewlett Packard, Ford Motor Company and Groupon.
The awards were presented during ceremonies at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. The ceremonies were hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network and broadcast nationwide on radio by the Business TalkRadio Network.
“We are very honored to receive this award, and feel fortunate to have the privilege of telling AutoMD.com’s story of consumer empowerment in one of the last opaque areas online – automotive repair,” said mWEBB Communications President Melanie Webber, who accepted the award at the ceremonies in New York.
mWEBB Communications’ public relations campaign for the launch of AutoMD.com focused on the website’s unique ability to help car owners make the best possible auto repair decisions, and resulted in broad-based media coverage across multiple channels.
“In public relations, no matter which media channel you leverage – whether social media, broadcast, or the next undiscovered channel on the horizon – without a good story, you really have nothing,” said Webber. “Finding that story and sharing it is the heart and soul of a successful campaign. We thank the American Business Awards for not only recognizing our telling of AutoMD.com’s compelling story but, in so doing, helping us continue to share it!”
The Stevie Awards were created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and business people worldwide.
