The Most Valuable Source for Vendor Recommendations? The CMO CLUB Announces new Vendor Ratings Program for Members

I am pleased to announce based on strong interest from CMOs in the club, the formal rollout of our new “Members Only” Vendor Rating Program. We are now set up to share recommendations on vendors, firms, and marketing consultants across 18 vendor categories for easy search by members.

We have the unique opportunity to create "the industry standard" for insight on real recommendations by CMOs, for CMOs, not tainted by vendor influence, etc.

The rules are simple. To create a review of a vendor, you simply must have been under a contract with them within the last 18 months and include your name to support your endorsement. Reviews include a quick overview of the service/products delivered, an overall rating and 3-4 other ratings based on Quality, on-time delivery, value for money, customer service, etc. It should take less than 5 minutes to share a review. All reviews will be reviewed and approved within 24 hours.

CMOs can then search by any of the vendor categories, geography, vendor rating categories, etc. to see which vendors are being rated highly by CMOs in the club. Reviews are stored on our site for members only.

Finally, thanks to Alex Romanovich and Social2B for helping with the design/implementation of the vendor ratings application.
