Since I'm having a bit of a blogging dry spell, I thought I'd turn the tables around and ask you for your marketing input: What are the best marketing blogs you know about?
My youngest child is starting school in two weeks… which means I'm going to have a lot more time in my hands 😀
I imagine myself finally being able to keep up with the best of the best content out there. So I'm looking for good, no, remarkable marketing blogs to read regularly.
To get things started, here are the marketing blogs in my RSS reader (in no particular order):
I do follow a number of other blogs that don't appear here. For the simple reason that they're not in my blog reader. These include blogs of those I consider my mentors and whom I interact with frequently enough for me to always end up on their blogs anyway.
You know, people like Nicole Dean, Kelly McCausey and Alice Seba, among others. Don't feel bad you're not on the list, ladies! You know I love you 😉
I'm sure I'm missing some other great marketing blogs out there. Do tell me: what other marketing blogs should I be reading? And why?
Thank you in advance!

MorePro Marketing’s Blog (https://www.morepro.com/blog) is a unique SEO blog in that it attempts to connect with visitors in layman’s terms. If you are new to SEO or online marketing, the blog presents basic strategies and useful terminology that won’t confuse the reader, sending them off in the wrong direction. It also covers a broad range of online marketing topics from blogging and social media to paid search management and link building.
@Aaron – Seeing that you are from morepro.com, I have some doubts about your objectivity. Nevertheless, I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt and publishing your comment, and leaving it up to the readers to decide 🙂
I appreciate you giving me the benefit of the doubt. I might be a little bit biased, but I have read quite a few SEO blogs that don’t really do a good job of breaking the content down into digestible bits which is why I think our MorePro blog stands out. I’m curious to see what other blogs your readers come up with because much like you, I’m always looking to add to my knowledge base.
That’s a tough one and one that I have been trying to answer for myself lately. Lynn and Nicole are on my list, and I recently started following Susanne Myers. I have just last week purchased products both from her, and featuring her, and she is top notch. She knows her stuff.
Connie Ragen Green and Jimmy D Brown are good, but I don’t “create” a lot other than my blogs. They still teach me things though.
If you find some, please share!
@Angie – Thanks for sharing! I’ve been on Jimmy Brown’s list for some time now myself but don’t follow his blog. Connie’s a new discovery.
Here are three Lexi:
Thanks for your usual help, Mike! Oooh, three new ones for me to check out. So exciting! Keep ’em coming!
Thank you for including me in such esteemed company! I am a relative newcomer to Internet marketing, having only started online 4 years ago. I have found that marketing is the key to everything we do, and honing my skills in this area has increased my income significantly.
I also love teaching others how to build an online business, and look forward to sharing everything I know. Please let me know how I can help. The easiest way to connect with me is on Twitter @ConnieGreen.
Connie Ragen Green
Awesome, Connie! I’m very pleased to make your acquaintance. I’ll certainly be connecting with you on Twitter 😀
Hi Lexi, this is a great idea – I was just hitting the point of looking for new blogs to follow to, so it’s very timely =)
Personally, I really like ConvinceAndConvert.com, which deals with practical social media strategy. Jay Baer somehow manages to make me feel smarter everytime I read it.
Also good reads are DuctTapeMarketing.com and blog.asmartbear.com/
Hope that’s useful!
Hey Jason! You’re right about Duct Tape Marketing. I do read that blog from time and time and listen to their podcast. ConvinceandConvert.com sounds just like what we’re all trying to do around here, LOL. Thank you!
I get a lot of value from https://www.marketingexperiments.com/ – they are great to read for ideas to improve conversion on your sites.
Good recommendation, Iain! I’m subscribed to their email newsletter and consider it a secret weapon. Shhhh!
