    Congrats to New Google Top Contributor - Colan Nielsen!

    I'm sure all regulars know my right hand man here at the forum, Colan Nielsen from Imprezzio Marketing.

    I have a very exciting announcement to make, but 1st a little history...

    Colan became our 1st Top Contributor here at the forum in October of 2012. He quickly became my protege and started growing into my right hand man.

    Shortly thereafter in February 2013 I promoted Colan to moderator here at this forum. Soon, I almost felt like I had a clone, because he would answer almost every question here at the forum just the way I would and helped take a lot of work off my shoulders. (I've always wanted a clone, thanks Colan!)

    In addition to posting here and helping everyone at the Local Search Forum, Colan has been really active at the Google and your Business forum and has been working his way up the ranks over there.

    February 2014 Colan earned his stripes and became a "Rising Star" at the Google forum which is the 1st step toward becoming a TC. I have been hoping he'd get promoted to TC for awhile now, because he works hard over there and with over 1100 posts, he deserves it!


    I am happy and proud to announce... drum roll pa-lease...
    Colan is now a Google Top Contributor!

    Google top contributor


    So Colan has joined the elite ranks and is one of only 9 Google and your Business TCs in the world.
    What an accomplishment!

    FYI, back in Sept of 2012 I started recommending to Google they promote Joy Hawkins (Colan's manager) to TC - and she became one in Nov 12. So now Imprezzio Marketing is the only Local Search company out there with 2 Google TCs on the team.

    I knew Colan's promotion was coming, but it just became official last Friday, so I wanted to share the news with all of you. Way to go Colan and job well done!

    Please join me in congratulating Colan!

    Oh I should point out. I always call Colan my right hand man, but he is just one of them.
    He's my FRONT man.

    David is my right hand man BEHIND the scenes, doing all the heavy lifting and tech stuff to keep this place running in tip top shape!

    No thanks or like button on my iPhone so I'll just say a normal thank you for those kind words Linda.
