Engenius names Worst Website
GREENVILLE, SC – Dusted Cover, an Upstate company that resells used Christian fiction and non-fiction books as well as the classics and homeschool curriculum online, has the worst website in the region.
Dusted Cover was the winner of the inaugural Upstate’s Worst Website competition, which was put together and coordinated by web company Engenius. The reward will be a brand new website created by the talented team at Engenius.
The search for the worst website started in late April and was open to any business in the Upstate as long as the owner or a legitimate representative submitted the information, said Chris Manley, the managing partner at Engenius.
Scores of companies entered the competition before being whittled down to three finalists for the worst site. The search was then opened to the general public for voting. Manley said the tallies were very close, but Dusted Cover pulled away from the pack for good on Tuesday.
“Websites are the storefront for many businesses,” he said. “So many decisions are made just on the look and feel of a homepage. We started this competition to help companies get more people in the door.
Jenna Kochenaeur, the owner of Dusted Cover, said she entered the Upstate’s Worst Website competition after seeing media coverage. A self-described “Web poser,” she created a site for Dusted Cover earlier this year, but could never make it work and used it as a holding page that redirected to her blog.
She will soon meet with the Engenius creative team to begin work on the new site for Dusted Cover.
“Winning this contest is a huge blessing, and I'm looking forward to working with Engenius and seeing what miracles they can perform on my website,” she said.
