E-LOAN, Inc. (www.eloan.com) announces that it has been named Interactive Media Award’s (IMA) Best In Class in the Banking Category.
The financial service site that specializes in providing tools and sources to borrow, save, invest and improve credit scores re-launched their services with a new website design in August 2012.
The new site includes unique financial education features and tools such as the Advice & Calculators section where visitors can learn about debt management, buying a home and understanding mortgages as well as calculate important financial decisions such as renting vs. buying a home, lease vs. financing a car, and more.
“It was the right time to re-launch our online services and continue meeting the public’s demand for financial education,” Camille Burckhart, E-LOAN, Inc. Chief Technology Officer said. “We are honored not only to report success of the new site, but to have also received a ‘Best In Class Award’ for it.”
The website re-launch was supported by a social awareness campaign on both Facebook and StumbleUpon. The campaign allowed E-LOAN, Inc. to further engage and educate consumers, share unique financial education infographics, give away $15,000 in prizes in the Facebook “Wish and Win” Sweepstakes, and drive over 300,000 website visits.
"It’s always rewarding to be recognized for designing an effective user experience, but what's equally exciting is to see that experience resonating with E-LOAN, Inc.’s consumers – exponentially increasing site traffic and garnering over 38,000 Facebook fans during the campaign’s span," said Adam Cossman, Partner at Sentient.
