Share this article

The Good Web Guide Website of the Year Awards continue to put innovation and online excellence at the top of the agenda.

Since The Good Web Guide Website of the Year Awards inception in 2009, the Awards have been supported by celebrity entrepreneurs and tech experts including Sarah Beeny, Jamie Murray-Wells, Julie Meyer, Alison Cork and Kate Russell. They have a stellar line up of judges once again this year, industry experts who are lending their support in the search for winning websites.

The Good Web Guide have introduced some new categories this year, which cover a wide range of lifestyle interests. With the People's Choice, they are throwing the net wide open; any website or app can enter this new stand-alone category and get their fans and customers to vote for them.

Streets ISA Media & Entertainment Chartered Accountants is delighted to announce that they will be sponsoring the Arts/Culture category.

Commenting on why Streets are sponsoring the Good Web Guide Awards, the firm’s Marketing Partner, James Pinchbeck said: “Whether as part of our own business development, process and marketing or that of our clients, the importance and value of having a good website site cannot be underestimated. A well, researched, designed and technical future proof website continues to be one of the areas of marketing budget spend that provides the greatest returns on investment.

“The value of a website, whether it serves as a shop window, a source of lead generation or an e-commerce platform, is often much greater than the cost of its development. An effective website can not only allow you to target your customers, but also through effective online and offline marketing, reach global markets.

“Entering the Good Web Guide Awards not only provides great PR and allows you to be recognised by industry experts, it also enables you to share experiences and ideas with other businesses with a passion for producing state of the art and imaginative platforms to promote and develop their business.”
