Boston, MA, March 28, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best real estate 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 real estate web sites, based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site. The deadline for real estate web sites to enter to be judged is May 31, 2016.
“Real estate industry marketing has been truly transformed by the Internet,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Their websites should provide a resource for both investors and those looking for properties. Having that aspect of your real estate website reviewed is just one benefit of participating in the annual WebAward program. Being named an ‘award-winner’ can help with marketing as well.”
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.
