Their Meetup is still in its infancy stage which is always a wonderful time to join–you can really get to see the group expand and hopefully become an influence in the group as it evolves.

The topic of the Meetup was valuable enough covering effective social media.

How had I not heard about Ryan Deiss before? He’s the co-founder and brainchild behind’s online-procured digital marketing certifications.

The certifications offered by Deiss’ company offer two interesting possibilities: the chance for individuals to learn digital marketing skills without a formal secondary education/college program along with the real possibility that hiring managers can use these certifications as a qualifier when reviewing digital marketing talent.
