TESTIMONIALS

Molly Solberg - MAS Marketing
"I have found this social media conference now 'Zenith', helpful and informative every year I have attended, including the first year! AimClear does an excellent job bringing in nationwide experts in a variety of marketing fields. You are guaranteed to learn something. They have various tracks you can choose from, whether your employees are just starting to dabble in social media for your business, to expert and advanced topics. Besides the wealth of information you learn I love the networking piece. It's a place to meet locals in your field and talk about their marketing challenges and successes. It's a great day, well planned out and crafted."
-Molly Solberg - MAS Marketing
Lucie Amundsen
"This is one of my favorite conferences because while I walk away with big aspirational goals for my social channels, there are always a handful of tips I start using the next day."
–Lucie Amundsen - Marketing Chick, Locally Laid Egg Company
Don Ness
“Fun, innovative, creative, inspiring – the Zenith Digital Marketing Conference exudes the very qualities that we try to project to our audiences. Each participant is both contributing to and benefitting from this dynamic culture. It’s pretty cool to be part of it.”
-Don Ness, Executive Director, Ordean Foundation
Dan Hartman, Director, Glensheen
“As someone who attends 5 or more conferences a year, this is easily one of the most useful and engaging I attend. If you don't expand your skills, you’re not paying attention.”
-Dan Hartman, Director, Glensheen
Mark Zimmerman, President, IEDC
“The Zenith Conference has been a great resource to our staff at Itasca Economic Development Corporation (IEDC), a small nonprofit in Itasca County. As a small business development center, we work with many small businesses. The knowledge we have gained has helped us to better understand opportunities available to our local businesses, ways to implement social media in their marketing strategies, and great ideas for our social media breakfasts.

Thanks to all who make the Zenith Conference such a premier event in the Northland! We look forward to seeing you in 2016!”
-Mark Zimmerman, President, IEDC
Dave Grandmaison, CEO, The Duluth Experience
"I attended the Zenith Social Media Marketing Conference in 2014 thinking I knew a little bit about social media. Sure, I'd been tweeting and posting and liking and sharing content for years, but what I didn't grasp was the depths to which you could take your online marketing strategy. I mean... you can go real deep and achieve some pretty amazing results. Attending the conference sessions provided my team with insights for a more cohesive social media strategy, and we've focused ourselves on creating a stronger social media marketing plan over the past year based on much of what we learned at Zenith 2014. I'm excited to return in 2016 and explore additional techniques that help refine our plan and communicate our vision to our future guests."
-Dave Grandmaison, CEO, The Duluth Experience
Elissa Hansen, Managing Partner, Steam Creative Consulting
"The Zenith Digital Marketing Conference brings first class, world renowned, expertise to Duluth! I have gone every year because the speakers are fantastic and it is rare to receive such a high level of training without traveling around the world."
-Elissa Hansen, Director of Business Development, Buzz Frenzy
