Yesterday LinkShare announced its 2011 Golden Link Award Finalists, and I was both surprised, and humbled to learn that I made the list too:
Out of all categories on the list the “Performance Marketing’s Most Vocal Advocate” seems to be one of the most fundamental, and altogether most humbling ones. LinkShare itself defines it as the category for those who “have influenced change within the performance marketing industry”. I am truly honored to be included, especially in the fine company of Shawn Collins (co-founder of Affiliate Summit), Lisa Picarile (former editor-in-chief of Revenue Magazine, faculty member of the University of San Francisco Online, co-host of Affiliate Thing), and Rebecca Madigan (Executive Director of the Performance Marketing Association).
Congratulations to all the other finalists, and thanks for the nod, LinkShare (and, of course, to whoever it was who nominated me).
This will be LinkShare’s 9th annual Golden Link Awards ceremony, and it is scheduled to take place on June 28, 2011 at Waldorf Asoria in New York, NY. So, we should find out the winners in less than three weeks.
