I first met Murray at Social Media Marketing 2010, the first of a series of successful monthly conferences for social media marketing and monitoring that take place in Paris, London and the US, when his company Influence People asked me along to talk about writing viral copy.
2011 is going to be busy: ‘I have a book about social media marketing coming out in 2011 with John Wiley and I’m planning to write books next year about email marketing, social CRM, blogging for business and social media monitoring. I’m running a forum and communities conference in February in San Francisco and am launching the Northern American Affiliate Marketing Awards. ‘I’m also planning an international blogging day, which will feature local hosted events about blogging in many cities across the world webcast to a central portal.’
Steve Hall from Adrants said, ‘I’ve watched, with a fair degree of jealously I might add, Murray rise to the top of the “blogosphere” writing about affiliate marketing and marketing in general on his blog. Murray is a remarkable, honest, and intelligent guy who contributes a great deal to the industry and helps marketers understand the value of blogging and social media.
‘If you want a go-to guy for tips about blogging, he is your man. And he’s done it all in just one year. He’s got a magical touch and an incredible sense of what works and what doesn’t. And he’s everywhere.’
