The quality of print-centric websites is just getting more creative and technically advanced. They are able to provide customers with an extraordinary product. Just take a look at The John Roberts Company, Mimeo, and Wells and Drew.

These companies happen to be winners of our web2award. This is the only award of its kind that honors the best websites in the print/marketing service provider industry. Winning one means that your company receives benefits like prestige, publicity, and, not to mention, an applause-worthy statue! 

You could say that winning a web2award is like winning an Oscar but even better for a print service provider like you. That’s why we created this video series—featuring some excited “winners”—to showcase some of the award categories you can enter this year.

Print Service Provider’s Business Website Category (E-Commerce)

If your company developed its own print-centric e-commerce solution (there is also a No E-CommerceComponent category)or built, hosted, or branded one for a customer, how would you like 10,000 print buyers and marketing professionals to know about this capability?

You can shout it from the rooftops when you enter and win the 2012 web2awards. View this video to learn more about the E-commerce Component category and discover the benefits of winning, which include:



Social Commerce Category

As you know, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media platforms are a great way to engage customers and increase traffic to your website. As a result of the explosion of social media, we have added a new category to the 2012 web2awards competition—Social Commerce.

Awards in this category will be for sites that directly sell print and related products through Facebook (F-commerce), Twitter (T-commerce), or other social media platforms that allow users to buy directly through the social site.

Learn more about this new category in this video, which features a very “social” award winner. She is so excited about her win that she literally has to be dragged off the stage.



Social Media/Cross Media/Promotional Case Study Category

Awards in this category will be for sites that can best demonstrate how a company’s print-centric social media efforts, cross-media campaign, and/or promotional website have met or exceeded company objectives, with quantifiable results. Please provide details on all components of the campaign in the details section of this entry form.
