Thank you for nominating the B2B Lead Generation Blog for MarketingSherpa’s 2005 Readers’ Choice Award! It is a honor just to be nominated. Be sure to check out the other quality blogs that were nominated by MarketingSherpa’s 185,000+ Readers, many of them are already on my blogroll.
If you’re time crunched, you can vote for your favorite category. I’m listed in the "B-to-B marketing blogs" section. Fellow Revenue Roundtable member, Mike McLaughlin’s Blog, Guerrilla Consulting was also nominated in the same category. If I merit your vote, please let them know.
Guidelines per MarketingSherpa:
If your time is limited, just pick your favorite category and rate each blog in that area. Winning blogs will get publicity, hotlinks, coffee-mugs, and an icon. Please take the following 5 factors into consideration for your ratings…
Is there a clear personality? Do you feel like you know the writer(s)? Is there a feeling of intimacy that may be missing from mainstream media?
Is the information either darned useful or very enjoyable to read? Did it make you think, or laugh, or click? Are there handy links to other places?
#3. Writing style:
Is it a sales pitch badly disguised as a Blog? Is it a long-winded column instead of a quick Blog? Is it just news briefs without analysis or insight?
#4. Usability & design:
Is the typeface easy to read? Can you find links to archives? Is the writing concise and skimmable? Are graphics useful?
#5. Would you revisit?:
Is it useful or engaging enough for you to visit it again someday? Or will you forget it the minute after you vote?
And, yes there is a write-in vote if you’d like to add a qualified Blog that our readers overlooked.
