Well, the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada ends today so I decided to try to come up with a “dream team” of Internet Marketing Olympians in several categories. The “events” are: Affiliate Marketing, Blogging, Email Marketing, Search Engine Marketing (including SEO/SEM/PPC), Social Marketing, Web Analytics, and I’ve even included an event for Vendors.

    Brent Payne is a hack. Very disappointing to see you have him listed here.

      Chris, you are entitled to your opinion and if you have other recommendations, I’m happy to hear them.

      Heather I was inspired after reading your great posts on the Olympics! Congrats on both of your Olympic wins – Affiliate.com and Dream Team!

    Sharon, this is an awesome post and one I will tag to pass along to folks. You point out amazing resources in key areas of internet marketing . . . and as we all seek to recover from post-Olympics coverage, it gets us all back to going for the gold!

    • http://sharonmostyn.com/ Sharon Mostyn

      Mary Ann, I’m so glad you liked it! I know I have missed some great people who should be listed, so I’m always looking to add more to my stable of potential Olympic champions.

  • http://www.marketlikeachick.com Coree Silvera

    Wow, Sharon..I’m honored to be on your Olympians stage with some very talented people! Thank you for including moi!

    I’ll work hard to bring home the gold for us! ;-)

    • http://sharonmostyn.com/ Sharon Mostyn

      Coree, it’s your hard work that makes you perfect for the list!

    Hi Sharon, Thanks for the mention. I’m flattered to have The Duffy Agency in such good company. I’m in Boston this week meeting with Kevin and the rest of the US team to explore expanding our US business, so this blog post will be a good way to kick off the meeting today!

    Kevin and I plan to be at MarketingProfs Boston meeting in May. Hope to see you there. – Sean

    • http://sharonmostyn.com/ Sharon Mostyn

      Hi Sean – I’ll look for you at the MarketingProfs B2B conference in May! I’ll be speaking with Stephanie Miller in the Hands-on Session: Email Testing for Higher ROI. I look forward to seeing you then!

    Thank you for including me in your “Dream Team”. My teammates are awesome. I’m honored to be a part of their team. Hopefully, we’ll make a difference in marketing for 2010. If we drop the ball, I expect you to push us forward.

    • http://sharonmostyn.com/ Sharon Mostyn

      Would pushing you all forward make me the coach, Debra? Of course, with this amazing team, you don’t need much pushing to succeed!

    Sharon that is an amazing list thank you so much for adding me on it. Didn’t see it until now but definitely love it :D
