  • Inspiring Women In Internet Marketing

    Back when the SWBN was launched in 2008, I remember there was a huge debate raging about women in Internet Marketing. The general gist was questioning why there weren’t many prominent women in online marketing, why women were excluded from what was seen as the “boys’ club” and why, when women did attend high profile events, they were often treated in a patronizing manner by male counterparts?

    Today is International Women’s Day, so it’s seems the perfect time to publish this post I began writing a couple of weeks ago.

    I’m often asked about the women I “follow” online – who inspires me, who offers great information, whose blog posts I read avidly? So, I thought

    it was time to share some of those women with you, in case you haven’t found them yet for yourself.

    Back when the SWBN was launched in 2008, I remember there was a huge debate raging about women in Internet Marketing. The general gist was questioning why there weren’t many prominent women in online marketing, why women were excluded from what was seen as the “boys’ club” and why, when women did attend high profile events, they were often treated in a patronizing manner by male counterparts. I think many of us had theories about the topic, and many wrote about it. My own feelings were that there were plenty of women doing great things in IM but they simply had different priorities and those priorities didn’t necessarily involve speaking at every seminar and conference that came along.

    Fast forward less than 3 years and the debate no longer exists (at least I haven’t heard it mentioned in a long time). Social Media, in particular, has given women a much louder voice and enabled many to create positions of leadership without having to travel and speak regularly (unless you count webinars, online video and podcasts).

    This post isn’t designed to re-start the debate, simply to give a little background to the main topic: who are some of the wonderful women online who inspire, educate and challenge me?
