The Worst Web Site Ever? A&S Computer Services of Wake Forest wins the prize.
Of approximately 14,000 votes cast online for four nominees, A&S was the people’s choice for the worst Web site in the contest held by Strategic Guru, a Cary marketing firm.
The prize? A Web makeover, valued at $9,000, performed by Strategic Guru.
“This is definitely an honor,” said Dave Sroelov, owner and president of A&S, a two-person company that provides information technology, management and human resources consulting services. “If you’re going to do something, you should be number one.”
Sroelov said that friends and clients alike have heaped abuse on the company’s Web site.
“I do not believe our Web site has helped us in any way, shape or form,” he said. “I look forward to having one that does.”
The voting was so close that Strategic Guru gave runner-up ASAP Office Supply of Raleigh a consolation prize: a Web makeover valued at $5,000.
“We thought they were both so deserving,” said Carolyn Rhinebarger, Strategic Guru’s founder and chief brainstormer.
