TopRank BIGLIST: Interactive Marketing Associations

Interactive Marketing AssociationsThe digital and interactive marketing space moves fast and as both companies and individuals scramble to achieve and maintain a competitive advantage, it can be a challenge to find resources and likeminded individuals to help make that happen. Associations offer education, networking and in some cases, advocacy for members and sponsoring companies. The question is, where can you find interactive marketing associations are in your area?

We’ve listed regional Interactive Marketing Associations in the past and thought it would be time for an update. This post will be a work in progress, so please share in the comments the name and working URL of other interactive marketing associations that we’ve missed.  We decided not to include groups and meetups that are primarily dedicated to SEO/SEM or social media.  You can find a list of local Social Media Club chapters here and a list of Social Media Breakfast cities here.  You can find abundant internet professional meetups here.

What interactive marketing associations and organizations did we miss? Please share in the comments.

  1. Hey Lee,

    Atlanta’s got a new SEMPO Working Group:

    Search Engine Marketing Professionals Organization Atlanta (SEMPO Atlanta)


  2. Lee, how about SEMpdx? http://www.sempdx.org.

    This is a nice list of organizations! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for a great presentation today, Lee. MITX and The Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council in Boston both offer a lot of programs on Interactive Marketing. That said it’s not the focus of the Mass TLC.

  5. Just noticed that the New England Direct Marketing Association is not on the list either.



    • Thanks Barbara, I’ll take a look. The organizations need to emphasize or focus on Interactive Marketing. We’re working on a much larger list of general marketing/PR associations, groups and meetups though. Glad the SEO Crash course went well 🙂

  6. Please note that the AIMS Canada association (Association of Interactive Marketing and Sales) is no longer active and has been dormant (probably dead) for at least two years
