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.
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.
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.
Aaron is one of the best of the 80-plus writers I edit as columns editor of MediaPost, topnotch in both style (entertaining and often witty) and substance (majoring in insightful analyses, with an eye on the big picture.).
He always turns in what editors call “clean copy.” That means he knows his grammar and can explain a complex subject with clear, expressive prose (or, on occasion, poetry, as in his haiku columns). And anyone who’s written nursery (“searchery”) rhymes about Steve Ballmer, as Aaron has, clearly has an extra helping of creativity.
He also invented the Search Insider Summit Buzz-O-Meter format, in which he uses the most popular buzzwords at MediaPost conferences to chart trends and the state of the industry. And he consistently meets his deadlines -- the way to an editor’s heart.
First, and foremost, Aaron is a stellar person. He has integrity, wit, humor and smarts. He is highly focused and overly-committed to the deliverable. He always exceeded my expectations and those who attended his workshops, when he served as faculty for our learning & development initiatives.
He's a pro, and was always patient with me, as I navigated through the world of Search Marketing Strategy. I hope to work with him again, as it would be my pleasure.
