Web Marketing Association Honors Digital Marketing Agency With Two Awards

September 15, 2011

Elliance was recently awarded two Standard of Excellence WebAwards from the Web Marketing Association on behalf of their clients, RJ Lee Group and Saint Leo University Online. Previously, this interactive marketing company won three other Standard of Excellence WebAwards and three Outstanding Website WebAwards in a variety of categories, including manufacturing, universities and professional services.

When designing the RJ Lee Group website, Elliance was tasked with showcasing the insights their expert scientists bring to material evaluation. It’s these insights that differentiate RJ Lee Group from other material science labs so Elliance decided to prominently feature the scientists on the homepage. In addition, the IA of www.rjlg.com was designed to highlight their new comprehensive services with the introduction of the industrial forensics tab.

For the Saint Leo Online website, Elliance helped the university speak to various ages, demographics and psychographics. By using strong visuals on the home page, Elliance was able to create a website that simultaneously addresses the unique needs of all their audiences. Now, www.online.saint.leo.edu brings military and civilian, undergraduate and graduate, domestic and international, religious and secular prospects into a shared experience.

This was the 15th year for the WebAward Competition and received more than 2,000 entries from 45 countries. Entries were judged on design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation, and use of technology. A complete list of the winning sites can be found at the WebAward Web site at www.webaward.org.

"The level of excellence in website development continues to increase, constantly making the Internet a very competitive place to do business," said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. "Each year the WebAwards receives amazing entries from around the world that show impressive creativity and functionality. As the Internet evolves, so does the state of website development. This year the judges really stepped up the expectations of the site adjudicated. Winning a WebAward is a great way to demonstrate the effectiveness of your Web development efforts."
