2010 Internet Marketing Olympics Dream Team

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.

I know I missed a lot of people/companies/organizations that should be on my 2010 Internet Marketing Olympic Dream Team – please post a comment and let me know who they are below. Thanks!

MarketingProfs Digital Marketing Mixer = THE Best Marketing Conference. Ever.

I want to make sure that readers are aware that I won the pass to this conference during the MarketingProfs’ Digital Marketing Mixer Sneak Peek. This in no way impacted my conference review below. Please see the Disclosures and Policies page for more information.

Last week, I attended the MarketingProfs’ Digital Marketing Mixer in Chicago. After 20+ years in the advertising/marketing business, I’m a bit jaded when it comes to conferences, but the speaker list looked good and it would give me a chance to meet “in person” many of the people that I had only met “virtually” via Twitter, email, etc., so I went. I generally consider conferences worthwhile if I get one or two takeaways from the whole conference. That was not the case at the MarketingProfs’ Digital Marketing Mixer. Instead, I got 3-5 things from EACH SESSION that I was ready to implement immediately!

My goal for the next MPDM is a good pic with all my Tweeps! I will be elaborating on the individual things I learned and how they’re being used in future posts, but I thought you might be interested in what some other people have to say about this event:

I’m sure I’ve missed a few blog posts, if you’ll take the time to tell me about them, I’ll be sure to add them!
