When our company name was loyalty.LEADS+MARKETING, we had a blog post where we listed some of the big players that we admire in the industry – we thanked them for everything they contribute to SEO/SEM and the advice they pass on freely and willingly – we want to be just like them! :)

I know we did it once…but this is a new blog and I think the blogs we read, the communities we participate in, and the people we learn from have all put us where we are today – a thriving SEM business centered around holistic, high end PPC Management.

As a special thanks to our SEM/SEO/Copy writing industry heroes and heroines, I would like to list some of my favorite posts from the past few months:
