The Deciding Factor, and its client Nolte Precise Manufacturing, recently received an Outstanding Website Award from the Web Marketing Association. The association evaluates and recognizes the best websites, and www.nolteprecise.com earned its award in the Manufacturing category.
“It’s been a great experience to work with The Deciding Factor. They manage all of our marketing strategy and implementation. Their team recognized our need to differentiate from the competition. They brought me great ideas and brought the site to life,” said Doug Coster. “We’re honored to be recognized with this award, but more importantly, we’re pleased that our customers are finding our website innovative and easy to use. It is a great sales tool.”
Jay Blumberg, executive officer of The Deciding Factor, said “To have Nolte considered in the same category with some manufacturing giants like Nokia and Sikorsky Aircraft is a compliment to Nolte and our team. Their website is a great example of how well-written content coupled with crisp design can make a positive impact on the audience.”
More than 2,400 websites from 45 countries competed for awards and were judged by Internet marketing professionals from around the world. Sites are evaluated on seven criteria – design, interactivity, technology, content, innovation, copywriting and ease of use to the target audience – and earn scores between 0 and 70 points.
The highest score in each category won a Best of Industry award. Websites that score 60 points or greater receive an Outstanding Website Award. The WebAward program also gave Standard of Excellence Awards to those who scored higher than the industry category average, but below the 60-point mark.

Their website is a shining example of this, and it establishes a professionalism and credibility that is uncommon amongst their competition,” said Karen Holzer, executive officer of The Deciding Factor. “We appreciate their trust in allowing us to bring their innovative approach to component
manufacturing to life through their website.”
