Marketing Pilgrim has posted a wildly generous resource, listing 75+ social media experts, SEO champs, search marketing experts, et al. 

From Marketing Pilgrim’s post:

Many underground conversations go on within Twitter that never make it to the blogosphere or news sites. It can be a dynamite location for link bait ideas, breaking stories, and general topics you might not think about on a daily basis. You might even find yourself obtaining clientèle through it.

Some of the talent listed include @NewspaperGrl, @chiropractic, @JasonCalacanis, @EricFriedman, @johnandrews, y mucho mas.

I should note this list is dynamic, as Marketing Pilgrim is encouraging self-listing via its comments.  75+ is fast becoming 175+.  Expect to see some massive followers/following increases among this set, especially as this post comtinues to be dugg.  This is a great idea!

“follow me on twitter and win” 560 and growing?

Marketing Pilgrim is offering a Nokia N770 in a twitter-based prize contest.  Users are encouraged to follow @AndyBeal, and sometime in the near future he’ll tweet instructions on how to win the Nokia.

The contest started yesterday; I didn’t find it until today.  Currently Andy’s followers number 560.  I’m going to follow this one and examine how his follower count grows as a result of this offer. 

The Nokia tablet is nice, and Andy’s post has a large photo of it.  The image is critical in this offer.  If it were something intangible, such as a subscription to a B2B service, customer testimonials that claim tangible results would be a comparable carrot to dangle.

More on Andy’s contest enrollment to come.
