What do you like about this subject?

I love the passion of smart people looking for solutions. The online world is not a place people go to be sold, instead they go online to be educated, entertained, and engaged. These people use common sense and the education they receive is shared with friends. Together they make informed buying decisions, as well as, provide united insights, opinions, and data.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

This is an ever evolving industry. I learn something new everyday. In fact, sometimes, I learn from the questions people ask. Questions I never even dreamed of asking.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Bookmarking sites are perhaps the most under-utilized, yet,most valuable resource for the digital marketer.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Marketing is often viewed as a cost-center. It does not have to be that way. Revenue-Driven Marketing opens the door to marketing accountability and achievement of annual revenue goals.
