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.
Although I've only known Aaron for a short time through mutual friends and former co-workers and also as fellow MediaPost Search Insider columnists, that's all the time I needed to realize that he's one of very few in the online media and search marketing world who are visionary in their thinking, yet witty in their approach to writing, speaking, and bantering about what makes our rapidly evolving industry go 'round.
Certain people in the industry have appealing or interesting thoughts and opinions, and whether we agree or disagree, we find ourselves coming back for more. Aaron though is eye opening in easily digestible, creative ways that make you go 'hmmm'. He always reminds us that we're on a fun, exciting ride together down digital marketing lane...more than ever, we need 'Willy Wonkas' like him helping us along towards the golden ticket.
Having worked with Aaron for a number of years, I can confidently recommend his expertise in online marketing. His attention-to-detail and commitment to delivery validate what so many have said here. Although having spent the last few years focused on search marketing, Aaron has an amazing ability to stay in tune with the latest marketing technologies and trends in the context of his clients' needs.
Goldman's vision allows him to leverage his vast network, bringing the right solutions to his clients. A seasoned business development professional, Aaron brings vast experience expertise to each project/relationship. I look forward to the opportunity of work with Aaron again. Highly recommended.
Aaron is visionary thinker who constantly challenges the current day's conventional thinking in the digital space. The leaders in the search and general digital industry respect his opinion and value his insight. That very same insight has been instrumental in the growth and success of Resolution Media. His extensive rolodex is just as impressive as his digital prowess. This guy knows everyone and everyone knows him.
His new venture could not be more appropriately named ... "Connectual". As testament to Aaron's expertise and value, I am proud to say that Resolution Media is his very first client. My only reservation about recommending Aaron is that he will likely have less time to spend with Resolution Media as a result.
Many people have said this already, but Aaron really is one of the brightest bulbs in search. Since I started at Resolution Media in 2005, Aaron has taught me more about business and search than about anyone in the industry, whether through his Search Insider column, or by working directly to discover the business impact of search for a potential client.
He’s a visionary digital marketer, more connected than a chain link fence, and a great guy to know and work with. If you have the opportunity to partner with him to take your business to the next level, take 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.
Aaron is a true digital evangelist. His passion for our industry has driven not only the Chicago interactive marketplace but the entire US. Aaron's reputation precedes him and his insights and experience make him an invaluable asset to any organization. Aaron is always true to his word and his vision and intelligence make him an incredible partner.
