Marketing exec Jackie Stone has been working in digital media since 1995, which means she’s seen firsthand just how much the Internet has transformed the way we share content and connect with people. Stone got her start as an account supervisor for the Promotion Development Group, one of the first companies to use the web to help market its clients’ brands. Today Stone is the senior vice president of marketing for Spanfeller Media Group, which publishes The Daily Meal and The Active Times.
In the second week of Mediabistro’s Profit From Your Passion series, Stone discusses the early days of the Web: “We built the first websites for Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s… We were just beginning to understand the power of what this was going to be.”
