Our new website achieves recognition in the Good Web Guide awards!
We are thrilled that our new website has been acknowledged in the Good Web Guide Awards 2014. Competition was fierce and although we didn’t make it the finals, we were pleased to make it onto the long list along with companies such i-escape.com and rudehealth.com. The final decision of the judges was to deem us ‘highly commended’.
The Good Web Guide Awards reward innovation and online excellence. Since starting 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.
This year, the overall winner of the Website of the Year award will be announced at a reception in the historic surroundings of The Royal Institution of Great Britain in London. The lucky winner takes home £2000 plus free advertising, a social media audit, PR support and cookery class for four people.
Last year, the award for best website was won by gandysflipflops.com, a social enterprise selling flip flops and at the same time helping children’s education and healthcare in India, donating 10% of profits to its ‘Orphans for Orphans’ mission, where it aims to build children’s homes around the world.
Of course, awards are great, but what really matters is the opinion of our customers. Since its launch earlier this year, you’ve given us great feedback on our redesigned website. You say it’s easier to navigate, with a clean design that showcases the product range.
The photography is clear and attractive and categories like Chinese Antique Furniture, New Arrivals and Bedroom Furniture on the Home page make it simple to find what you are looking for. The blog also takes a more prominent role, with latest posts now visible on the Home page!
So keep on telling us what you think. Awards are lovely, but it’s your opinion that really matters.
