This past year represented a growth year for marketers. With the nation slowly pulling itself out of a recession, businesses -- both large and small -- are beginning to show signs of healing.
Many of you candidly shared your stories with us for last year's Wisdom Report
-- stories about the ideas, strategies and tests you put into motion to counter the struggling economy in 2009. These stories highlighted both successes and failures, and served as an inspiration for MarketingSherpa readers to test new ideas, go back to basics, and ultimately, to strive for better results in 2010.We'd like to hear how it went
. Here’s how it works if you’ve never shared your wisdom before.
