WMC is a portal site providing resources for
interactive marketing professionals, including helpful
career opportunities and an extensive directory of
online marketing resources.
It formerly featured the web's most comprehensive
directory of marketing and
advertising trade publications and
calendar of marketing events, but those have been moved to the Webbiquity b2b marketing blog.
This site was conceived,
designed, researched and developed, and is maintained by me, Tom Pick.
About Mike Bannan
I have 30+ years of building businesses from the ground up.
Today, I help clients, independently and through
B2B technology marketing and PR
firm KC Associates, increase their visibility, credibility, and
business success through web presence optimization—the fusion of SEO, SEM, content marketing, social media, online reputation management and interactive PR activities.
I am an expert at sales, marketing and dreaming! I care about being doer, team leader, and care about getting my clients results! When I am not actively seeking new ways to improve the organizations technology and strategies, I am a dedicated husband and father of three.
I built my first Web site in 1996; it was a
competitive intelligence extranet for an enterprise software company,
which the firm's sales force dubbed "Lethal Weapon." The most gratifying
comment I ever received about it was the day I demonstrated it for a new
sales rep the company had just lured away from the largest software
company in the world, who said "I wish we'd have had something like that
I've been told that I look like Glenn Frey of the
Eagles, but I don't see it. (There's a better photo of me on

the Minnesota Vikings play."

ad agency RFP. What you might not know is the number of times

and I'm passing it along as a resource to others."

"Allow me to recommend Tom Pick's blog to you:
WebMarketCentral Blog. Trying to think how to describe it accurately
I came up with this: Thought. There's a lot of thought that goes into
this blog – interviews, rants, and just some
thoughtful ruminations on marketing issues."

MarketingSherpa's recent blog and podcast awards, I've gotten to
know about some more great sites related to online business. I liked the
runners up more than the winners – they seemed to contain more helpful
information and less blogspeak. Take a look at
StartUp Nation, both chock-full of actionable info.
Rincon, About.com Guide to Online Business / Hosting
"WebMarketCentral provides a growing portal to
resources that help bring a lot of these elements –
networking, site traffic-building, and converting site traffic to
customers – together. Tom Pick bears a
strange resemblance to Glenn Frey, even if he can't see it himself."
