Best Health Care Website to be Named by Web Marketing Association in 21st Annual WebAward Competition

05:31 EDT 13 Mar 2017 |

Boston, MA, March 13, 2017 --( The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best healthcare websites in the world as part of their 21st annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including healthcare, healthcare provider, medical, medical equipment, biotechnology and pharmaceutical websites, based on the seven criteria of a successful web site. The deadline for Healthcare websites to enter to be judged is May 31, 2017.

“Excellence deserves recognition. The healthcare industry is very competitive when it comes to Web development and many companies deserve to be recognized for their online efforts,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Healthcare web sites are typically strong in terms of content and copywriting due to their role of helping the organization become a trusted medical source. In past years, judges have also scored these sites well in ease of use, and design; however, they can tend to lag in innovation and use of technology.”

Websites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy writing and ease of use. Each WebAward entry in the Health Care category is judged against other healthcare sites and then against an overall standard of excellence.

All healthcare entrants benefit from receiving valuable feedback in terms of their specific criteria scores compared against the average scores for their industry. They also may receive specific comments from the WebAward’s professional judging panel on their Web site development efforts.

Winners of a WebAward in the health care category will also receive:
· Handsome statue or certificate of achievement
· Increased visibility for their company
· Marketing opportunity to promote the company website to the media
· Links to your site from the highly ranked WebAward site to help SEO
· A highlight for your resume.
· Admiration of peers, friends and co-workers
