Wrapping Up 2008 (Almost)
It's that time of year again: the holidays are upon us, a new year looms, and the pundits polish their crystal balls and make their predictions for what's in the offing. This is our last newsletter for 2008, save for our annual "Best Of" compilation on December 23, so I'm starting the year-end wrap-up early highlighting a few recent things of note...
1. Speaking of compilations, Daily Fix contributor Peter Kim assembled some 13 of us to answer the question, "What will 2009 hold for Social Media and Marketing?" Herein is what the hard-working Peter produced, 50 Social Media & Marketing Predictions for 2009. (That, and a bonus PDF!)
2. Our Get to the Po!nt newsletters have grown in 2008 and, what's more, they're getting better with age. The team who produces them (which now includes Claire Coyne, Christian Gulliksen, Ken Gordon, Sharon Edwards, Dawn Anfuso, Jason Lorentz and Megan Cordero) deserves special mention for their tremendous work. Thanks, guys! Check out the growing collection of bite-sized newsletters here.
3. And finally, back to the future, again: 2009 promises to be a great year for MarketingProfs, and I'm excited to share what we have in store for you, our subscribers, as the year unfolds. But first, in a sneak preview of 2009: Check out the amazing David Meerman Scott's planned virtual seminar, Lose Control of Your Marketing: The New New Rule of Marketing and PR. David will kick off our virtual seminar program next year. He's smart, inspiring, and hard-working. If you've never seen him or heard David... well, put this on your to-do like for the new year.
