Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Who is the Social Media Marketer of the Year?

« Twitter is a Social Network | Main | 5 Ways to Thank Your Customers »


Thank you for looking into it, Nathan. I worked with colleagues who were like that - more focused on advertising what they were working on than actually getting results for the company. There may not be new ideas under the sun, but there surely are new implementations.

If you go to
it seems that the ladies are affiliates or friends of some sort. Not one but two graphic links to her friend's site. Even what appears to be a blog link goes to her friend/affiliate's blog. Very, very odd.

Seems pretty bogus to me.

(They clearly went all out to announce such a prestigious award)

@Alli - thank you for your kind words. With advice and information shared over 715 posts on an average of 500 words, I'm thinking I have also written a book.

@Anne - got it. It sounds like one organization using a same title for the award. As I stated in the post, I consider the conversation the place where it plays out over time and professional peers and readers alike to be part of it. Yes, there are many amazingly useful books and tools out there written by colleagues, friends and practitioners around the world.
