BNET WINS FOLIO 2010 EDDIE AWARD FOR BEST BUSINESS WEB SITE
Leading Site for Managers Beats CNNMoney and Strategy+Business
SAN FRANCISCO, January 25, 2011 — CBS Interactive today announced that BNET.com has won Folio’s 2010 Eddie award for best business-to-business Web site, covering banking, business and finance news. The awards were announced at a ceremony in New York. BNET was one of 400 finalists and beat CNNMoney.com and Strategy-Business.com to take the award.
BNET launched in 2007 and was relaunched last year with a fresh design and substantial new content to make the site even more useful to its audience of successful managers and business owners. Readers can now find more than 1,000 exclusive, original pieces of content per month, plus millions of archived white papers and business articles, in a site that splits content into six categories: Commentary, Leadership, Life at Work, Business Owners, Executive Education and Library. Every page allows you to engage with its writer and link to trending stories.
“This is a great tribute to the editors, video producers and designers who redeveloped a great site in 2010 and made it even smarter and livelier,” said Eric Schurenberg, Editor in Chief of BNET.” From the humor of Business Blunders to the punchy attitude of Sales Machine and great reporting of Jim Edwards, BNET is proving itself an indispensable companion to the 21st century manager.”
