Blogger Socialites: Collier, Colt

Are you one of the conversational visionaries who will be attending the inaugural Blogger Social (April 4-6, NYC)? Well, you’ll be in great company. Today, just a couple profiles – Mack “25” Collier and Saul Colt.

Mack is the orginator and maintainer of the Viral Garden’s Top 25 Marketing blogs, a weekly scorecard of which blogs are getting the most traffic. I confess to a bit of “25 envy,” but since I’m not really a full-time marketer and mega-prolific blogger – hey, I have to settle for re-runs of “24”!

On his blog bio, we find the following: Mack Collier is a social media consultant, and author of The Viral Garden, a blog focusing on marketing and social media. He also is a frequent contributor to the website Marketing Profs, as well as the marketing blog Daily Fix. Mack is a requested speaker and has advised companies of all sizes on their social media strategies, from small businesses and startups, to companies as large as Dell and Nettwerk Music. And you can see on the sidebar all the places where Mack will speak next, including SXSW and more.

Much of Mack’s blog focuses on…well, blogging, so it’s a great hub for all things blogging/social media. If you want some Mack on Facebook or LinkedIn, you can view him there. Here’s a quick interview of him also, using the title “Social Media Consultant” (I like that!) We look forward to seeing him here in the great Northeast!

Saul is one of those mousy, unassuming, quiet types – a happy-to-be-in-the-background humble native of Toronto. Painfully shy about his inadequacies, he nonetheless describes himself as the Smartest Man in the World on the masthead of his blog, followed by this description: Saul Colt is in all of us…..he inspires great things from people of all walks of life including people in correctional facilities. Called a Marketing Genius by many, Saul Colt is a modest man who just happens to be the Smartest Man in the World and quite possibly your guilty pleasure!

Hmmm…definitely a marketer!

Saul’s posts are all over the map, with a very personal and informal touch, which makes for entertaining reading. Saul works at FreshBooks, an online invoicing and time tracking service for freelancers and service providers – sounds quite interesting, actually. His LinkedIn profile gives his title there as Head of Magic – that’s a first! Sounds like his co-workers enjoy him as well. Saul will be a fun addition to our April gathering!
