London, 6 September 2006: Online publisher E-consultancy has been shortlisted in two categories for this year’s AOP Awards, which are aimed at rewarding excellence in digital publishing.

E-consultancy is up for two awards, both in the business categories of Online Publisher 2006 and Editorial Team 2006. It faces stiff competition from past winners Reed Business in the Online Publisher category, and the likes of Silicon and Brand Republic in the Editorial category.

E-consultancy publishes practical reports aimed at helping business people and marketers to execute best practice internet strategies.

The in-house subject expertise is broad, covering obvious topics such as search engine marketing and email marketing, as well as more niche subjects such as on-site search, which is of vital importance to e-commerce companies.

As well as publishing reports E-consultancy also maintains a blog (www.e-consultancy.com/news-blog), launched in summer 2006, which is aimed at delivering news, comment and insight related to internet business.

Additionally, a newsletter (http://www.e-consultancy.com/news-blog/newsletter/) featuring an interview with an industry insider is despatched to 22,000 users every week.

E-consultancy CEO Ashley Friedlein said: “We’re pleased to be nominated and hope that the judges will look beyond our subscription firewall, as that’s where the really good content lives!

“That said, our free newsletter and blog continue to attract regular praise from old and new users, so we believe we’re on the right track and are continuing to help educate businesses about the benefits of the internet, and best practice.”

E-consultancy has thousands of paying subscribers and more than 42,000 registered users, with the vast majority working within the internet industry in the UK and US.

It was previously shortlisted for an AOP award in 2004.
