Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
For the second straight year, Apartment Finder, the #1 go-to resource for active apartment shoppers, has won a Silver W3 Award in the Excellence on the Web category for its leading apartment search site ApartmentFinder.com. In addition to this back-to-back recognition, Apartment Finder took home several top honors at the 19th Annual Multi Housing Achievement in Design, Advertising & Community Support (MADACS) Awards for Best Mobile Website; Outstanding Product Innovation for its FinderSites product, which provides website design, development and SEO service for apartment communities; Best Outreach Marketing Collateral; and Best Color Guide Ad. MADACS winners were announced at an awards gala in Minneapolis on September 12th.
These W3 Awards and MADACS Awards wins follow on the heels of ApartmentFinder.com’s three-peat recognition earlier this month as Best Internet Listing Service in the annual Multi-Housing News Technology Choice awards competition.
“We are thrilled to have earned these awards, as they underscore both our commitment to, and expertise in, developing multimedia marketing strategies–executed via online, social platforms and direct media channels–that put apartment communities in front of more active apartment shoppers,” said Marcia Bollinger, President of Apartment Finder. “We are honored to be recognized for this work and will continue to introduce innovative tools and solutions to connect apartment seekers to our clients easier and faster.”
Recent innovations and enhancements to the mobile-enabled ApartmentFinder.com include advanced search technology; robust viewing options for apartment listings; a widget offering access to renter reviews; free integrated iPhone, Android and Tizen apps; industry-leading On Demand Coupons; and much more. In June 2013, Apartment Finder also launched FinderSites, a website design, development and SEO service featuring cutting-edge technology for apartment communities.
With continued innovations to ApartmentFinder.com, Apartment Finder is recognized as the leading apartment rental resource among consumers and the industry. In addition to the W3 Awards and MADACS Awards, other recent honors include being named an Official Honoree in the Real Estate category of the 18th Annual Webby Awards, the #1 Apartment Search Source by SatisFacts Index for the last two years, and the Best Internet Listing Service by the Multi-Housing News Technology Choice Awards for the last three years.
The annual W3 Awards recognize outstanding websites, web marketing, web video, mobile sites/apps and social content created by some of the best interactive agencies, designers, and creators worldwide. The competition is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a "Who's Who" of acclaimed media, advertising, and marketing firms.
Sponsored by the Minnesota Multi Housing Association, the annual MADACS Awards recognize owners and associates who have made significant contributions to multi housing marketing and management through exemplary achievement.
