Top 7 Marketing Blogs You Should Be Reading


I was originally going to compile a standard "top 10" list of marketing blogs, but when I started writing down my favorite blogs, I only came up with seven. I decided that I didn't want to water down my list with other blogs that I don't actively read, as I felt this would be disingenuous and would reduce the overall value of the post. Here are the blogs that made the cut:

  1. Seth Godin - Seth Godin is something of a legend in the marketing world. Bestselling author of over a dozen books, he offers consistently insightful posts.
  2. UnMarketing - Author of one of my favorite marketing 2.0 books (also titled "UnMarketing"), Scott Stratten writes about how to engage your customers and potential customers instead of marketing to them (hence the name "UnMarketing").
  3. Copyblogger - This blog focuses on the content side of marketing, namely blogging and copywriting.
  4. Brian Solis - Brian Solis provides analysis of the new media landscape and recommendations on how your business can succeed in it.
  5. Chris Brogan - A great source for social media marketing insight.
  6. {Grow} - Mark Schaeffer writes about how to grow your business using social media, blogging and other marketing channels.
  7. Danny Brown - Another great source for marketing 2.0 information.
