We have had a relationship with AIMS since the start of Sequentia, and it's been one that has done amazing things for us - clients, partners, employees and professional development have all come to us through AIMS over the years, and the organization provides a much needed focal point for the industry in Canada.
Jen Evans, President, Sequentia Communications
I love what you guys have been doing lately with the AIMS site and blog. It is getting to be a really great resource. I scour the web daily for useful info on this topic and AIMS' site really is getting to be one of the best.
btw I love the AIMS blog - it's always one of the first I read when checking my feeds.

Getting three, good speakers followed by a reception with food and drinks was much more than I expected for only $60. By making this kind of expertise available at such a modest cost, AIMS is doing Toronto a great service.
Congrats on putting together an excellent event that was so interesting and valuable. The speakers were fantastic and it was well organized.

"I met Shane Wagg, Marketing Director at www.Rugman.com at an AIMS event where he was a guest speaker. I write web content with a specialty in Search Engine Optimization. As it would happen Shane was looking for an SEO writer. I e-mailed some samples of my work, we arranged a meeting and Shane hired me for the project. It's been a delight getting to know Shane and working with him."

"When you need to reach Canadian Internet marketing professionals and those who are interested in the field, the AIMS Discussion List is a great vehicle to use. The last ad we placed generated a 300% return on investment plus led to a number of business inquiries from potential prospects and partners from all across Canada."

"Back in the early days, I was one of the few members not actually in sales or marketing, but rather as a designer of web solutions, I really wanted to tap into what the top people in the industry were thinking about: what their concerns were, what their approaches were, what the hottest topics were for them. As it turns out, I got those perspectives and more. It's been informative, entertaining, and a great way to stay in touch with the Internet pulse professionally. Over the years, many of my friends and associates from previous jobs have become members, so it's been a great way to stay in touch with them over common territory. Keep on surfin' AIMS... hang ten!"
