Not much to say for this issue of the Web Marketing Association’s Interactive Briefing. The extended deadline for entering the 2007 is only a few days away – Friday, June 15th. The judges are ready to begin the difficult task of determining who has the best web sites if 96 industries.

If you have entered the WebAwards this year, please check your nominator account before Friday to see if your entry fees have been paid and all of your edits are complete. After Friday, the sites are off to the judges and editing will be turned off.

If you did not enter yet, what are you waiting for? You only have a few more days submit your web site to be recognized and earn itself a great marketing opportunity (it won’t hurt your reputation either!).
