Hickory, NC (PressExposure) November 05, 2009 -- The November 1st issue of online publication "Immediate Influence" devoted its primary coverage to the outstanding women in Social Media. Why? Because the Internet continues to become an ever larger influence for commerce and cultural change, and honoring the women who are at the forefront isn't merely a nicety, but a serious statement about their role in advancing the role of Social Media for the entire world.
Cathy Perkins, known as The WordPress Wizard (http://TheWordPressWizard.com), from Hickory, North Carolina was honored as one of the top 25 women in social media. As the online blog known as "Immediate Influence" put it, "Itâs time to celebrate! Please congratulate 25 of the Most Powerful & Influential Women in Social Media that were hand-picked by folks on Twitter."
"This has been very exciting for me!" said Perkins. "You see, Twitter has been a rich source of online networking and social connection for me personally and professionally" she explained, "allowing me to network with Internet marketing colleagues and others all around the world. After I learned how Social Media could advance my career as a blogging expert -- I'm best known as The WordPress Wizard -- I then began to teach others how to do what I've been doing for several years."
Ron Hudson, owner of "Immediate Influence," in picking the list, took into consideration website linkbacks, Alexa rankings, and voting from the Twitter community. In his article listing the 25 top women in Social Media, Howard said, "In every industry there are a few people who are inarguably outstanding at what they do. In addition to that, they are typically charismatic, energetic, and creative."
Perkins is the creator of The WordPress Workshop (http://TheWordPressWorkShop.com) and The Power Twitter Workshop and many other courses designed to help people master the powerful business success tools of blogging and Twitter and other elements of Social Media. Her latest addition is her soon to be released Magic Membership Sites.
"This is a thrill to be named two years in a row! And I am honored that "Immediate Influence" included me again in its prestigious list."
