The WebAward program, now in its 17th year, is the longest running annual website competition dedicated to naming the best websites in 96 different industries, and setting the standard of excellence in web development. Last week they announced their 2013 batch of winners, and we’re proud to say that 5 of our sites have been recognized.
Best Blog: Digital Rx: The Klick Health Blog
Among the sites recognized this year is this one, Digital Rx! Not only was this site recognized for being the best blog in the healthcare/pharma industry, it was recognized as the Best Blog Website in the entire competition! We’re ridiculously proud of the things we’ve been able to achieve with this website and are delighted to be able to share it with our most important critics – you!
But of course, as much as we love bringing the healthcare marketing world the latest and greatest in digital marketing news, we’re dedicated to building effective and informative resources for the patients and healthcare practitioners that rely on the tools we’re able to provide with our clients. And this year, we’ve definitely made a splash with many of our sites.
This year, the WebAward program recognized 4 of the sites we’ve built together with our clients, spanning the consumer, HCP and unbranded markets. These award-winning sites are:
