2014 ABMP Website Builder Contest

In October 2014, ABMP held the ABMP Website Builder Contest to give members an opportunity to build the website that comes free with their ABMP membership and enter their website in a contest for a chance to win some amazing prizes. (Nonmembers were given temporary complimentary access to the ABMP Website Builder to build a website and enter the contest.)

ABMP offered participants weekly tips through social media sites and email to build their website step-by-step throughout the month of October. The deadline to enter the contest was October 31, 2014. Sites were judged on layout, design, professionalism, creativity, and incorporation of technology including social media, online scheduling, and video.

Contest Winners

We were thrilled at the enthusiastic response to ABMP's Website Builder Contest! A panel of 12 judges had the tough task of choosing just six winners from more than 470 entries.

The winning websites all successfully incorporate welcoming content, personalizing photos, informative descriptions, clean design, organized text layout, and smart use of technology including online scheduling and social media buttons.

The winning sites strike that critical balance of personalized but informative content that inspires potential clients to book a session!
