The award for best PPC Management Software was presented by our friend David Szetela, VP of Search Marketing Operations for Bruce Clay Inc. I’ve had the pleasure of being a guest on his podcast, PPC Rockstars many times.
The judging panel for this award included 30 experts in the field of online marketing, PPC and SEO including long-time Optmyzr user Jim Banks who I had the pleasure of meeting at Pubcon last week. Jim has been doing PPC longer than almost any of us and started in 1999 and now heads up Biddable Media for Cheapflights. I find it really exciting that people who’ve been doing PPC for so long recognize there is room for innovation in the PPC management tool space.
I also have to give a special thanks to Larry Kim, founder of WordStream for inviting us to attend the event as a guest at their table. Congrats to Larry on his well deserved win of Search Personality of the Year.
