Crystal D Wins B2B Standard of Excellence WebAward
St. Paul, Minnesota-based Crystal D, an industry supplier of corporate awards, announced it won the B2B Standard of Excellence WebAward from the Web Marketing Association. This is the 12th annual competition including more than 2,400 Web sites from 45 countries in 96 categories. This is the second year Crystal D has won the Standard of Excellence WebAward.
To win the WebAward, the Crystal D Web site, www.crystal-d.com, earned above average scores in the business-to-business category. Contending Web sites were scored against other Web sites within each unique industry. Sites that scored above average received the Standard of Excellence WebAward.
Three or more experts judged each contending Web site. The judges were given the site’s mission statement and target audience. As the site was evaluated, the judges assumed the role of the target user. In this case, the target user was a promotional products consultant.
The WebAwards was created by Web Marketing Association to define standards and set industry benchmarks for the best Web sites based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site listed above.
“It is great to be recognized two years in a row for our Web site,” said Chuck Dahlgren, president. “We continually strive to provide a Web site that is intuitive and has the information distributors need.”
