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.
Aaron Goldman is one of the most knowledgeable and well connected individuals in the Digital landscape. His in-depth understanding of the strategies involved in creating a successful solution elevate Aaron above his competition. In addition, his ability to communicate the results and detail in a digestible format allows him to provide clairty in a complex digital space.
Aaron is a brilliant strategist, communicator, collaborator and leader. I've seen all of these at close quarters and under pressure! One of those folks you hope to have a chance of working with again. He also has great humility, so despite the fact that eighty-four other folks agree with me, I am confident this won't go to his head.
Savvy, creative and intellectually dynamic, Aaron is a world-beater when it comes to business problem solving. He's a superior communicator and active listener, which enables him to engage with any challenge, get inside it, root around, and find the right levers to push. This unique combination of skills and innate qualities allows him to scan the landscape and synthesize a strategic framework for any business case with startling speed. Throw in a DaVincian passion for the art and science of digital marketing and a comprehensive understanding of the space and you won't find a better resource, guide or partner in your endeavor.
After working with Aaron both directly and indirectly for almost three years, I can say he delivers on his word and product. The key part of any business relationship is communication and making sure you follow through on your commitments. Aaron always followed up with me. I would recommend Aaron as a strong partner.
As the Executive Director of CIMA, I have had the pleasure of knowing Aaron Goldman for the last four years. Aaron is a take-charge person who has shown remarkably effective leadership skills and the ability to delegate responsibilities. His attention to detail and public relation skills has helped him collect on most accounts that others had given up on.
His interpersonal and communication skills have allowed him to develop productive working relationships with both clients and staff. Aaron's leadership and organizational skills have been invaluable to these programs, most of which have been started from the ground up. In my opinion, Aaron's unwavering devotion to his career, dedication to his work and to his community exemplifies strong moral fiber and character.
He is a trustworthy individual and would be an excellent candidate. Consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and a dedication to success. His efforts have produced high quality results time and time again.
Aaron is a unique combination of intelligence, business acumen, dedication and sincerity. His advanced understanding of search is only surpassed by his ability to communicate it at every level. He is incredibly generous with his time to clients, vendors, industry groups and co-workers.
I am constantly amazed he can dedicate himself to so many things and constantly deliver such great results. If you get the chance to hire or work with Aaron Goldman, I HIGHLY recommend you take advantage of it.
Aaron is a true visionary and has added tremendous value to my client base. He has a gift for taking the complexities of SEO and SEM marketing and weaving them into a holistic communication strategy that compliments each and every element. His leadership and vision will be missed.
