Having thousands of connections in the digital marketing space is valuable but having over a hundred of them testify on your behalf is priceless. Below are recommendations made via LinkedIn for Aaron Goldman, Managing Partner of Connectual. Browse by Tag, Last Name, or Company.
Aaron and I have served together on the CIMA Board of Directors since 2005 and in that time I have been continually impressed with his natural leadership abilities, his keen sense for scoping out new opportunities, his strategic vision, and his drive and dedication to the CIMA brand.
Aaron’s efforts as VP Sponsorships have been intstrumental in fueling CIMA’s unprecedented growth and have given Aaron the unique luxury of expanding his professional network to literally thousands of senior executives in interactive marketing.
If you study Aaron’s immense network on LinkedIn alone, you’ll quickly come away concluding that he’s the most-connected expert in the interactive industry – regardless of the geo. Aaron will no doubt build his new company - Connectual - into a powerhouse digital practice in record time. I look forward to watching Aaron fulfill on his promise to himself and the community with his bold new venture.
I had the pleasure of meeting Aaron while learning more about Resolution Media and the role Aaron played in building and shaping the company. It was immediately clear to me Aaron was passionate about his contributions to Resolution Media and proud of what he and his colleagues had accomplished for the company in a short amount of time. As he should be!
I have also found Aaron to be an accomplished author/blogger and someone who writes about the digital marketing space with the knowledge, insight and wit of an insider. Aaron is the type of professional who you meet and immediately want to learn more about and partner with to obtain success. I look forward to working with Aaron in the future and supporting his upcoming endeavors.
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 had the pleasure of working with Aaron for the past 6 years or so...first as a business partner when Aaron was at Max Online and next as an agency partner at Resolution Media/OMD collaborating on Apple's worldwide search business. Aaron has always impressed me with his robust knowledge of digital strategy; he is an expert!
He always delivers more than one would expect and brings value to the conversation. Additionally, Aaron's a true professional and is very passionate about his work and relationships. I look forward to working with Aaron for many years to come!
Although I have not had the pleasure of working on a specific project with Aaron, I met him last year while discussing ways for our companies to potentially do some business together. Aaron was very accomodating and took the time to meet with me in his office and talk about the opportunities ahead. I am glad to have met Aaron when I did and wish him all the best in whatever life decides to throw his way. Aaron is a very professional, curtious and most of all one of the brightest minds in this particular space. All the best.
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.
Aaron is one of the most talented sales people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He is innovative, knowledgeable, professional, and always goes the extra mile for his clients. Clients consistently told me how much they genuinely liked working with Aaron.
Ultimately Aaron is one of those rare people who always brings both personal and professional passion to the table, and it consistently shines through in his work and in his relationships.
Aaron's been a thought leader for CIMA (Chicago Interactive Marketing Assn.) and a stalwart of the digital community for a decade or more- his enthusiasm, leadership and dedication to his work have provided direction and inspiration to many, many people in both his personal and professional life. A great team player and/ or leader who will continue to excel in his field.
