This Saturday’s Free Internet Marketing Consulting Topic: Gamification
Great Free Internet Marketing Consulting Saturdays
Last Saturday we had our biggest and best crowd of Internet marketers discussing something we all know and love – Internet Marketing. I earned one of the nicest comments I’ve ever received (and in real time!) when Mark Traphagen said this on G+:
“I’m sitting across a table from Martin W. Smith in a hands-on free Internet Marketing group consultation we’re putting on this morning here in Durham NC. I have been impressed by Marty since I met him, but hearing him teach folks right now makes me realize that he is a genius. Circle him NOW.”
My sentiments about guest Free IMers Mark (@MarkTraphagen) and Phil Buckley (@1918) too. Mark knows Google Plus like few on earth, and Phil rocks SEO and leads the largest Raleigh SEO Meetup (SEO – What You Need to Know). Here is a piece of my Praise for @1918:
I knew and could just about hum the tune. Watching my friend Phil Buckley speak to a large meeting room packed with Internet marketers on the Social Media Intensive Track at Tuesday morning’s Raleigh Internet Summit. I thought of how far we’ve both come from the conference rooms and white boards of the past. I left Phil not long after making one of my most intelligent hiring decisions to ride a bicycle across America.
Read the rest of Praise for Phil.
Great People Make Great Meetings
In addition to Mark and Phil, we had other great people at this meeting. Not going to name them here since most of the crew were FOP and FOMT (Friends of Phil’s and Friends of Mark T.’s) more than FOM (Friends of Marty’s). Hope to list everyone who joined us as FOMs and hope to see them again at another Free Internet Marketing Saturday.

Want To Speak / Lead / Join a Free Internet Marketing Meeting
Got a great note on LinkedIn from Tim Mclain, Marketing Manager from the very cool Netcertive, to see if he could join. Answer to that question is always YES. Would love to have Tim tell us about his very cool and fast growing company. Will confirm when we have details. In the meantime, don’t be shy. If you want to step up and lead, PLEASE do so (lol). Anyone can come by. Tweet if you remember, too, since we almost wore out our welcome at Saladelia on Saturday. I can rent a room there and will do so if needed.
Hope you can join us for one of our Free Internet Marketing Fridays or Saturdays soon.
