Small Business Influencers 2011 Awards Final Results – Thanks to All!

Anita Campbell’s Small Business Trends announced the Top 100 Champions and Honorable mentions in their Small Business Influencers 2011 Awards.

Small Business Influencer Award 2011

I am happy to say that Lisa Barone AND I were both awarded a spot in the list of Top 100 Small Business Champions. We are in rare company with the likes of Aaron WallJohn JantschInc. Magazine and Intuit and a ton of others, many of whom I am not familiar with but would like to learn more about.

Thanks to all of you that voted for me and better, thanks to those who took my advice to vote for Lisa. 

Groucho Marx once noted that he wasn’t sure that he wanted to be a member of any club that would have him as a member. That is not the case for me in this situation UNLESS they sit me between the Better Business Bureau and Google at the award dinner, both award winners as well. (For those of you that don’t recall, I have offered up criticisms of both over time and I once even managed to criticize both in the same post 🙂 )

Thanks again!

Please consider leaving a comment as your input will help me (& everyone else) better understand and learn about local.

  1. @Mike – and Lisa too! great accomplishment, there you SEO gurus! Voted for you both quite a few times…and nice to see that Anita’s foray into this Award venue was a solid player too!



  2. Congratulations Mike! You definitely deserve it! Only true way to become an influencer in the SMB world is to demonstrate servant leadership. We surely need more people like you in the SMB community if we are to help biz owners lift themselves out of this depression.

    Local internet marketing firms should also be training on the art of personal development in addition to the technology and Google changes. Thanks again Mike, for all your hard work and your insightful wisdom!

    I’m just curious Mike, how does the nofollow free plugin work on your site?

    1. Eric
      The plug in seems to work great. My policy is to provide do follow links for those that have taken the time to use a real name or pseudonym that is not key word based and have made a number of comments here. It’s a simple way of saying thank you to all the folks that contribute regularly to all of our understanding.

  3. Congrats! I voted for the both of you not because you twisted my arm 😉 but because you both deserved it. Thanks for all you do to help small businesses!

  4. Congratulations, Mike! No one deserves this award more than you! You help small businesses a lot by sharing your knowledge and it’s greatly appeciated.
