New York, NY, June 13, 2011 – PropertyCasualty360.com, a Summit Business Media Website for property & casualty insurance professionals, was named one of BtoB Media Business magazine’s 10 Great Media Sites this week.
BtoB Media Business recognized 10 business-to-business companies that have demonstrated excellence in adapting to the Internet’s threat on long-established print magazine business models by thriving on the Web. PropertyCasualty360.com was chosen as one of the top 10 by “…positioning themselves as the center of discussion in their vertical communities,” according to the special report published in the magazine’s June issue.
PropertyCasualty360.com was launched in January in response to research data that the industry wanted a single source for property & casualty insurance news, market trends, and analysis. The Website combines editorial content from 5 major property & casualty brands - National Underwriter Property & Casualty, American Agent & Broker, Claims magazine, Florida Underwriter and Tech Decisions - in a portal format organized by major industry topics.
“There were many hurdles to overcome in the initial planning stages of combining 5 magazine specific sites into one larger portal,” said John Whelan, executive vice president of Summit Business Media’s Media Division. “We’re thrilled with the success that PropertyCasualty360.com has had among its readers and advertisers. It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the media industry’s 10 great sites.”
“Ultimately, our readers’ opinions are what rule the day, and it’s clear by our dramatically higher traffic patterns and increased audience engagement that they are giving us two thumbs up for the portal concept,” said Eric Gilkey, editor of PropertyCasualty360.com. “To be called a ‘great media site’ is an amazing accomplishment not only for the editors who work tirelessly to produce relevant content for our readership, but also for the entire team involved in making PropertyCasualty360.com a success, including marketing, IT, and sales.”
