One award was for SuperMedia’s groundbreaking mobile app, EveryCarListed; the other for its innovative search-marketing service, Inceptor. SuperMedia’s EveryCarListed iPhone app was recognized in the Mobile Platform or App category, which highlights excellence in mobile media execution, such as mobile display, SMS and mobile streaming video advertising.

In addition to EveryCarListed, SuperMedia’s best-in-class search engine marketing service, Inceptor, was honored with the Search Marketing Award for its work with Kaz USA, a global leader in health care devices and home comfort products. Inceptor created a highly successful, proactive campaign for the company leveraging pay per click (PPC), comparison shopping engines (CSE) and search engine optimization (SEO).
