West Simsbury, CT (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
http://www.webaward.org -- The Web Marketing Association is pleased to announce the Best of the Automotive Industry Website Winner for the 10th annual international WebAward Competition, the Internet’s premier website award competition.
“Autumotive websites are consistently pushing the envelope in use of design, technology and interactivity. More and more automotive consumers are shopping online for vehicles, so it is important that companies stay on top of great website design,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Companies who have fallen behind the pace of their award-winning peers can leverage the valuable feedback provided by WebAward judges and make their sites competitive in coming months and years.”
Automotive industry websites represent one of the most competitive industries in the WebAward competition. For the past three years the automotive industry websites entered have received above average scores across all 7 judging criteria.
WebAward entries are all judged on the following 7 criteria:
- Copy writing
- Ease of use
