2010 Theme: “Oh the Places You’ll Go”

bryan_asrHappy New Year!

I’m really excited about 2010, and to share some of the BIG things we’ve got planned for you. This year I’ve chosen a theme: “Oh the Places You’ll Go” inspired by one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books by the same title. I’m a kid at heart who is still very active in action sports (just a little more cautious now) and I try to find fun in just about everything I do-including work.

To me, the theme “Oh the Places You’ll Go” has a double meaning that’s both literal and figurative. Last year as a direct result of being associated with the our community I was honored to “go” and speak at major social media conferences like the Inbound Marketing Summit, BlogWorld Expo, Gravity Summit and others about my work as a consultant in brand, web and social media strategy. I was also surprised to find out that I was featured in the New York Times Best Seller, Trust Agents (pg. 251) by someone I really respect as a social media expert and guru, Chris Brogan.

Over the last year I’ve heard from many of you about your success stories of collaboration, cross promotion, connections and more. The collective talent in this community is amazing. “Oh the Places You’ll Go” is a feeling that together we can do great things; that being connected to so many incredible people will help your brand or career “go places.” I would encourage you to stay plugged in to this powerful network of resources and opportunities.

Our Network has grown to more than 5,000 members and we continue to add great people everyday.

Sponsorship opportunities in many forms including sponsored posts and conversations, event sponsorship etc will also continue this year for those who want to reach our special niche members. “Oh the Places You’ll Go” in 2010…

Feel free to contact me directly if you have questions or want to know about sponsorship. I wish you much continued success!

Member Spotlight…


This Member Spotlight is on Email Marketing Solutions company Blue Sky Factory. I met BSF CEO, Greg Cangialosi and his awesome team at BlogWorld in Las Vegas last year. To be honest, I had no idea who they were but knew several people who used them:Gary Vaynerchuk , Brogan and a bunch of other social media geeks. The SoCal Action Sports community had grown far beyond what my Gmail and web host list server could handle so I started talking to Greg. When I saw what the solutions included I was blown away at the technology and analytics. But in the end, I actually decided to go with Blue Sky because the people are so cool. I can call them up and get a live person on the phone to walk me thru something if needs be and they are on it. [Disclosure: Things have worked out so well that BSF now sponsors my email solutions].
