It's been a fantastic first-year ramp at market2world, and now we're ready to expand our team. As a Web 1.0 veteran I started this company sensing that social media as embodied by the publicity, lead-generation and community-building potential of blogs, podcasts, wikis and RSS could offer large and (especially) small organizations a global marketing communications edge like they've never experienced.

market2world has now planted itself in the heart of the Internet's next revolution - the "Web 2.0" social media wave transforming marketing into conversations that spark real-time brand-building. Social media attracts prospects that don't just become customers. As they join in the conversation, they help you acquire other customers and build your next generation of products and services.

Now The Economist and other mainstream media are devoting special reports to the social media phenomenon. Conferences are springing up around the country. And our client list now numbers a dozen national and multi-national companies and government organizations. With growth comes opportunity for more people to join our team - two more to start, and we suspect many more to follow.

market2world has also planted itself in the heart of Almonte's technology cluster. Clients love visiting our offices perched above a magnificent waterfall. They also quickly recognize Almonte as an innovative, culturally rich and intellectually diverse community located a couple of kilometers away from Ottawa's city limits.

OK, enough pitch on the scenery, here are the jobs! Get in touch and help write the go2market rules of the social media era with the growing team at market2world!
