Even as 2011 was winding down, things were still in full swing at CityVoter with 3 big contests! Voting closed just before the New Year for Cleveland’s FOX 8 HOT LIST, WMBF’s Best of the Grand Strand in Myrtle Beach and the A-List on WISN.com in Milwaukee. WMBF’s Best of the Grand Strand and Cleveland’s FOX 8 HOT LIST winners have officially been announced, and the last batch of winners for the A-List on WISN.com were announced today!
The 2011 WMBF Best of the Grand strand contest received just fewer than 40,000 votes. That is over 6,000 more than the 2010 contest, and we believe part of the success can be attributed to how social the contest was this year. The businesses really engaged with their social networks! Voters in the FOX 8 HOT LIST cast almost 130,000 votes during the course of the 8 week long contest.
The clear stand out contest of the year is the A-List on WISN.com, which garnered over 116,000 votes in just 3 short weeks! That is 31,000 more than 2010’s 8 week long contest. We couldn’t have had such a successful contest without the help of all of our passionate local business owners and voters. With their support the contest received an average of over 5,500 votes per day!
The 2011 contests ended on a great note with a vote total of 2,134,454. We are excited for what’s to come in 2012. Stay tuned!
