The Top Influential Women in PPC: Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

Earlier today, our friends over at PPC Hero posted their awesome The Top 25 Most Influential PPC Experts in 2014 list based on community votes and a couple other factors. Their list is fantastic and full of awesome PPC-ers, but talks in the twitter-verse have been discussing the lack of women on the list. So in an attempt to give praise where it’s due, Clix decided to put together our own list of influential women in PPC. Without further ado, here’s Clix Marketing’s list of the Top Influential Women in PPC.
