15 Marketing Blogs You Should Start Reading Right Now

Whether you’re a business owner looking to learn more about leveraging social media, blogging, and SEO to boost sales, or an aspiring inbound marketer like me, staying up-to-date with industry developments is mission critical. Google alone makes more than 400 changes to its ranking algorithm every year, and it seems like a new social media platform makes an appearance every day. The Internet provides a lot of opportunities for data-driven success, but if you want results, you need to keep up.

The list below includes blogs that I read on a daily basis via Google Reader. Some are more focused than others. Social Media Examiner primarily covers developments in the social media space, whereas copyblogger is an excellent resource for aspiring bloggers. That said, integration is the cornerstone of most successful marketing campaigns, so it’s worth your time to spend a few minutes at least scanning the headlines and reading pieces that pique your interest.

Well, enough small talk, let’s get right to it:

Now it’s YOUR turn! Are there any blogs that you read regularly and which didn’t make it onto my list? Share your favorites in the comments section below.

  1. Thanks for sharing, I recently have started thinking about starting my own blog. The only down fall is that I start out doing well, but then I gradually just stop doing it.

    1. Thanks for your comment, Stanick!

      I agree, blogging consistently is HARD work. I have two suggestions:

      1) Be realistic. If you know that you can’t commit to more than one post per week, make your blog weekly. If you’re busy, post every two weeks. High quality and consistency are KEY.

      2) Make an editorial calendar. Decide what you’ll blog about, and plan out your posts several weeks in advance. That way, when you finally do have some spare time, you won’t have to spend it brainstorming topics and can get straight to the writing.

      Good luck!
