As a fellow media geek and U of I College of Communications Advertising alum, I've always had a sincere respect and true admiration for Aaron's ability to just 'get it' and relate to everything and everyone.
I first met Aaron 11 years ago when I was deciding on where to go to college and stayed in his fraternity when I was in high school. At the time and still to this day, one of the most deeming qualities on both a personal and professional level is that he just 'gets it.'
Aaron understands people and is a fantastic communicator. I've co-anchored advertising panels/career nights, in Champaign, and have crossed paths w/ Aaron numerous times over the years. Aaron is above and beyond a fantastic advice giver and truly cares about everyone he comes across.
While working as a senior media sales rep during the day, I started my own apparel company, brand and website (Kosher Ham Ventures LLC / KosherHam.com) at night and during the weekends. I had a good foundation on the branding and marketing but had very little knowledge (besides reading articles and blogs) on SEO, SEM, etc. Aaron was the first person that came to mind to call. I wanted to speak to a true expert and knew that Aaron has had such a well-versed career in digital media thus far.
Aaron was one of the first people I called to seek-out advice on digital media, search engine optimization, online marketing, and the list goes on and on. Aaron would give-up his lunch break or make time off hours to help me, an old acquaintance, chip away at the big block of ice known as online media at the cost of just 'paying it forward.'
Aaron is a born-leader, and his breadth of knowledge on digital media is hard to match. I appreciate the help and advice, and I think that as a consultant and true business leader Aaron's career is still in its infancy stages. His curiosity and wanting to learn more and more (and not just about digital media....other arms of advertising and beyond) is what makes him so successful, and I'm sure this success is just the beginning.
I worked with Aaron for 5 years while I was on the agency side and he exceed expectations each and every time. From everything from expertise to client service, our account team was extremely comfortable knowing that Aaron was stewarding our clients' business and helping them meet and exceed their objectives.
As an industry colleague, I've always looked to Aaron for advice, networking help, etc. Through his tireless work ethic combined with this vast knowledge of the online landscape, he's gained the trust of the entire marketing community.
Aaron impressed me with his business acumen, deep grasp of the digital marketplace, and best practices. Aaron is the go-to guy for SEM, and can translate the most abstruse SEM strategies into plain English so that average people can apply that advice in their everyday activities.
As a columnist, blogger and writer, I have followed Aaron's advice to great effect, and would recommend him to anybody that needs guidance in the world of SEM and beyond.
Aaron was, in my opinion, the face of Resolution Media within the digital marketing community - consistently identifying and establishing new business ventures, while maintaining a very knowledgable and approachable presence in the company and the industry. I know Aaron will bring his abundant energy and top-notch work ethic to all ventures, and I am glad to have known him professionally. I would recommended Aaron's services to anyone looking for expert advice and guidance in the digital marketing realm.
After completing a summer internship at Resolution Media as a member of Aaron´s team, I have come to appreciate how perceptive and committed he is in all of his projects. Not only as a boss, but more importantly as a mentor, Aaron's knowledge of the digital industry is unparalleled.
His constant enthusiasm and impeccable work ethic has served as a great example to me as I begin my career in the advertising industry. The amount of knowledge I have absorbed under his guidance and leadership has been so beneficial. Always up for a challenge, I know success will follow Aaron in all his endeavors!
I've had the pleasure and honor in knowing and working on projects with Aaron for the past eight years. Aaron possesses a ton of intelligence and industry knowledge on many levels which allows him to look at situations and come up with creative solutions to most problems.
At the same time, he has the ability to break it down and put the idea into language everyone in the room can grasp and understand. His character and personality have made him a trusted friend and adviser to those he's come in contact with over the years.
If I were starting a business again, Aaron is one of the individuals I'd want on my team. His depth of industry contacts and experience are hard to match.
Aaron was a panelist at the Digital Marketing Symposium held at Loyola University Chicago. He offered deep insights into the area of interactive marketing and provided thoughful advice to students who were interested in the field. I'm recommending Aaron because he is a great public speaker and someone that gives back to the educational community.
I met Aaron Goldman during 2007 the University of Illinois Advertising Career Night, held by the College of Media and have kept in touch with him since then. He was always glad to have the chance to talk with me and others seeking career advice. As a public speaker, he demonstrated having unique insight into the development of digital services. His lectures were easy to follow; he was sensitive to the audience’s concerns and responsive to our comments.
Besides having superb media and advertising expertise, Aaron is also generous with his knowledge and grateful to the institutions he has learned from. In my personal communication with him, he has given me great advice and continues to be consistent, encouraging, and timely. I fully believe in Aaron Goldman’s ability to lead and create a success with his new venture.
