HubSpot's Popular Marketing Blog Received Two SEMMY Award Nominations
CAMBRIDGE, MA--(January 25, 2008) -
-- Similar to the Golden Globes, the SEMMYs are the best of the best within the Internet marketing community. Although HubSpot is a group of modest people, it is now time to take this opportunity and boast about such an honor. That is why it is with such great pleasure to announce to the world, that HubSpot has been nominated for two, yes count 'em, two SEMMY Awards for our Internet marketing knowledge!
-- The SEMMYs are an annual awards event honoring the great content produced across the search and online marketing industry. The 2008 SEMMYs include articles/posts written by 127 authors representing 111 blogs/sites, all classified into 15 categories. Not only do the SEMMYs include the original SEO category, but also a variety of other specialties, including blogging and social media -- some of HubSpot's sweet spots.
-- Selected alongside other great marketing bloggers, HubSpot's blog article titled "10 Secrets to Marketing with Social News Sites - Digg, Reddit, StumbleUpon and more," was nominated in the Social Media category.
-- HubSpot was also selected as a nominee for the blog article "7 Signs You Should Run Screaming From An SEO Consultant" in the SEO Category.
-- Unfortunately, HubSpot was not selected as a finalist in either category. They are just happy to have been nominated since even the nomination is a great honor, and look forward to competing again next year.
