Yesterday we finally launched our website and announced our plans to create the first and only publication dedicated solely to search engine marketing. We sure hoped that people were going to be interested in the idea of taking search marketing offline, but we never expected what followed hours after our press release was published.
Our staff, including myself, was literally overwhelmed by live chat requests, phone calls and e-mails. I had to reply to hundreds of e-mails and answer dozens of phone calls from SEM consultants and other experts in the field offering to contribute. It was exciting to see that we have such great support from our SEM community.
Now that the expectations are even higher, there is more pressure on our team to create something great for this industry. We are determined, more than ever, to become the face of the search engine marketing industry, get rid of all the misconceptions regarding professionals working in the industry and bring a better understanding of the market to the client. “I have a dream that SEO people, PPC people and even affiliate marketing people…” OK, getting back to work now; so much to do, so little time.
