By Charles Wardell. Two home builders and two home products manufacturers have won Outstanding Web-site awards from the Web Marketing Association (WMA), a virtual organization that evaluates corporate Web sites. Each year, WMA picks 200 winners based on design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, navigation, and ease of use. Each site is reviewed by five of WMA's 200 volunteer judges.
This year's home builder winners were Toll Brothers (www.tollbrothers.com) and Del Webb (www.delwebb.com). The two manufacturers were Sub Zero Freezer Co. (www.subzero.com) and Moen's Asceri Accents Mini-Site (www.moen.com/asceriaccents/index.cfm).
The awards are open to all companies but like the lottery, you can't win unless you play. The call for entries begins in May of each year. E-winners are announced in the fall. For more information, go to www.webaward.org.
