Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: 13

Becca Field, Strategic Account Manager at Republic Media, attends AZIMA events to learn more about SEO!  She was especially excited about the October event featuring Danny Sullivan.

Do you have an interesting AZIMA story you’d like to chair? Find me at the next event!  I’ll be the one holding a flip camera 😉

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: 11

Meet Adrian Vender, Account Manager and Technical Implementation Specialist at WebShare LLC.  He likes the networking AZIMA offers and meeting all kinds of professionals in the interactive marketing industry.

I think it’s safe to say that many AZIMA members enjoy the networking portion of the social events.  I do too! In fact, it is what I look forward to most.  Catch you next month at the Nov. 16th event!  Don’t forget – the event is the third Tuesday of the month this time around!

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 10

Can’t believe this is the 10th edition of my mission! I’ve met some great people along the way, and I am looking forward to meeting even more.  And, the tables will be turning soon, as someone will be interviewing me about my AZIMA experience.

This week featured AZIMA member is John Wolfe!  John manages his own blog where he discusses social media, public relations and digital media.  He loves to expand his network, as he attends local events as much as he can!

He said he loves AZIMA events because of the caliber of presenters and attendees, and the food isn’t bad either! 😉  Also, by attending monthly social events, John said he stays up to speed in all that is going on in the interactive marketing industry.

Who is excited to hear Danny Sullivan‘s presentation Oct. 12?  I know I am!

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 9

This week I’d like you to meet… Heather Lynn Herr from Terralever!  As a professional in the Internet marketing realm, Heather said she loves to come to AZIMA each month to keep up with all her friends in the industry.  Also, she loves learning from her peers and AZIMA events are perfect for that!

We had some laughs before the interview, as you’ll see.

Great to meet you, Heather!

So, who is excited for AZIMA’s next event on Oct. 12 with Danny Sullivan? I know I am. We’ll be discussing search marketing with an SEO great, and you won’t want to miss it. If you haven’t registered yet, be sure to do so ASAP, because this event will sell out! See you there, Flip cam in hand!

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 8

It seems like it has been awhile since the last Mission to Meet AZIMA Members post, but the wait is finally over!  This week, I’d like to introduce you to Jim Lupkin, Co-Founder and Social Media Director at  He heard about the Social Media and Politics event with Kevin Spidel and Jeremy Vaught and decided to attend an AZIMA event for the first time.  We’re glad to have you, Jim!

Hopefully Jim will join us next month for the October 12 social event, where we will be discussing Search Marketing with Danny Sullivan, editor-in-chief at Search Engine Land.   You should too!  See you there.

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 7

Wow, I can’t believe this is the seventh edition of my Mission to Meet AZIMA Members series.  I hope you all are enjoying it as much as I am!

This week, I am pleased to introduce you to Ethan Mowery, a “self proclaimed Internet guru.”  He is the Director of Online Advertising for Orange Slyce, as well as freelance web consultant and designer.  He said he was excited to attend AZIMA events to meet others in the industry and learn from them.

Check out Ethan’s online portfolio to see some of his work!

Also, don’t forget about the upcoming AZIMA event on September 14th to learn about how social media is being integrated into political campaigns.  See you there, and hope to catch you with my flip cam!

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 6

The sixth edition of Mission to Meet AZIMA Members video series features Cory Howell of MorePro Marketing.  Howell, interested in local search sites, said he was looking forward to meeting other Phoenix professionals and looking forward to the presentation.

What do you think of the video series? Is it helpful to put names to faces in our industry? Personally, I am having a great time talking to and getting to know AZIMA members. See you September 14th!

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 5

I know you’re all dying to meet this week’s featured AZIMA member, but I’m sure most of you already know him! At the August 10th social event, I had the pleasure of interviewing Matt Siltala before he spoke about local search sites to the group.   Siltala is one of the founders of Dream Systems Media and has been involved in the Internet marketing world for many years.  He knows a ton about SEO and is a Yelp-lover too!

In addition to being an SEO fanatic, Siltala is a big Arizona Cardinals fan, so we decided to ask him about his predictions for this season as well 😉

Also, for the record, my friend and co-worker Michael Schwartz has volunteered to help me with the Mission to Meet AZIMA Members video series.  We look forward to meeting some of you next month on September 14th to discuss social media and politics.

Mission to Meet AZIMA Members: Part 4

This week’s featured AZIMA member is Jessica Dimino from Orange Slyce, the “eHarmony of student employment.” I had the pleasure of meeting a few Orange Slyce employees and found out what they are all about. Dimino said she learns a lot from AZIMA events, which is what keeps bringing her back each month.

Now the fourth week of the Mission to Meet AZIMA Members is complete! And don’t worry, I got a new batch of videos at the event last Tuesday. Also, don’t forget to check out this month’s AZIMA webinar, which is today at 11:30 AM PDT!
