Word of mouth marketing is gaining more traction than ever before, and according to growth predictions, we're seeing just the beginning of a huge surge of both interest and word of mouth marketing activity
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 19, 2008
The Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA) today announced the launch of its 2008 Wommie Awards competition. This marks the kickoff of the third annual Wommie Awards, and given the enormous response garnered by the 2006 and 2007 competitions, WOMMA is expecting another dash to the finish line among Wommie Award competitors.
Designed to recognize amazing word of mouth campaigns and the smart people who create them, WOMMA's Wommie Award has quickly become the most coveted accolade for the word of mouth marketing industry. WOMMA is once again asking word of mouth marketers to "wow" it with examples of their word of mouth marketing in action. Marketers who author the WOMM success stories that shine the brightest will take home a Wommie Award in recognition of their outstanding word of mouth work.
Wommie Award winners will be chosen by a peer review panel and will be publicly recognized at WOMMA's upcoming Word of Mouth Marketing Summit, which is taking place Nov. 13-14 in Las Vegas. At the Word of Mouth Marketing Summit, Wommie Award winners will have the opportunity to present their case studies to a room full of word of mouth marketing experts and aficionados.
