/ SignUpGenius Honored for Web Design and Content
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — August, 27, 2015 — SignUpGenius, the leading online sign up service for event and volunteer management, was recently recognized for its outstanding web writing, design and development by the Interactive Media Awards and The American Business Awards.
The Interactive Media Awards honored SignUpGenius with a Best in Class Award for Consumer Services, and the American Business Awards gave the site a Silver Stevie Award for web writing and content. Stevie Award judges praised SignUpGenius for having “great strategy and metrics” and being “user-friendly and easy to navigate.”
“The user experience of our SignUpGenius members is always a top priority — and that becomes ourcompass when designing and implementing new features. The key, for me, is to always place myself in the shoes of our members,” says senior developer Jojo Serquina.
SignUpGenius’ site traffic rose 35% last year to 39.9 million visitors. The top three SignUpGenius articles in 2014 totaled over 1.5 million pageviews, each earning a first page Google keyword search rank with less than $100 in paid advertising. This year the site has unveiled new features such as Sign Up Tabbing for Pro users and an upgraded mobile site.
The Interactive Media Awards gave SignUpGenius high marks for design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance. Only a fraction of sites earn a Best in Class distinction, the highest honor bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards. The IMA also named SignUpGenius Best in Class in 2014 for web design and development.
The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations — public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. SignUpGenius previously won a Silver Stevie Award in 2014 for Customer Service Department.
SignUpGenius also recently earned its third-straight Communicator Award from the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts Award Distinction, winning for Web Applications and Services.
SignUpGenius simplifies the process of coordinating events and people by providing online sign ups for non-profits, schools, sports, churches, families, colleges, businesses, and organizations. By enabling up to 10 million unique visitors per month to sign up for tasks online, SignUpGenius has done away with the need for paper sign ups, "reply all" emails, and phone trees.
