We did it ! We were very excited to be announced last week as a winner in the 2012 Red Herring Asia 100 Award. This prestigious industry award recognises the top 100 private IT/Technology companies in Asia/Pacific each year that display innovation, growth and potential value etc. Thanks to all the PriceMe team who worked hard to make this happen and to our large community of users who support us each day by using PriceMe for their pre-shopping research. Great effort !
We’re very pleased to announce that PriceMe has been selected a finalist by the Red Herring’s editorial team, which has evaluated the growth potential and innovation for a large pool of private technology companies accross the Asia business region.
Red Herring’s Top 100 list is considered to be the most authoritative in the industry for identifying and awarding innovative tech ventures. The final is held in Hong Kong on the 10-12 of September.
Exciting news this morning: PriceMe is a Web Awards finalist!
We made it into the final round in the best shopping site category.
The winner will be announced on the 25th of August.
We’re really happy and proud of making it to the finals, and would like to thank everyone that supported us! Big thanks!
PriceMe was a HitwiseTop 10 Award winner for the period July – December 2009.
PriceMe ranked number 5 based on market share of visits among all in the Shopping and Classifieds – Rewards and Directories industry. The previous ranking was number six if I recall correctly, so it seems that PriceMe moved up one notch. Hitwise used to have a quarterly reward, but has chosen to award winners twice a year.
Hitwise is considered an authority in the field of website rankings, and analyses server logs and ISP data in order to determine website traffic, so this is a fairly reliable ranking.
PriceMe is committed to keep growing and improving the website. Please let us know directly if you have some suggestions on how to make the site better. We would especially like to hear what the main problems are and what is lacking. With your input we’ll hopefully be able to improve our ranking in half a year.
PriceMe is ranked number 6 in Hitwise Shopping and Classifieds category for the first quarter in 2008.
We think a Top 10 ranking is great news for us given:
- PriceMe’s short history – we ‘soft launched’ in October last year (few retailers and products), and really started to get visitors to the site in January this year.
- Limited marketing – we only spent minor amounts on Google Adwords so far.
- The bulk of the traffic is organic – “word of mouth” marketing and organic search.
- Traffic to the website is still increasing rapidly.
Thanks for choosing PriceMe as your online shopping website.
