I admit it. I’m a marketing junkie. I love pretty things that glitter and shine. I’m addicted to shows like Teen Mom, 16 and Pregnant, and Outlander (don’t judge me). You can find a People magazine in my hand from time to time (and I do read it cover to cover).
But, back to the marketing junkie confession. These are some of my favorite marketing blogs. Reading them helps keep my up to date on the happenings in my world (and probably yours if you own or run (or own and run) a business.
Honestly, I receive Neil Patel’s emails, which is Quick Sprout’s founder and blog writer, to alert me when a new post is up on the blog. In other words, I don’t go specifically to the blog every day. I read his email intro and click on the link if it’s something of interest to me.
I wouldn’t say what he offers is cutting edge stuff to someone who has been online or working in the world of marketing recently. What he does offer is great reminders on what we all SHOULD be doing with our marketing online. If you’re a novice, you’ll think he’s a genius, however.

From time to time, he does offer some great suggestions on apps or sites to check out for your marketing efforts.
Digital Marketer is another great one to follow. They share some pretty intriguing ways to drive traffic to your site. They share a ton of info about converting your visitors into buyers. They are obsessed with putting systems into place to create a sales and marketing funnel that works for your business.
I’ve picked up some great tips—some that I definitely use in my daily content marketing and online marketing antics.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, Melissa. She talks a great deal about your business being your guilty pleasure and about having a business crush. I am pretty sure that I might be crushin’ on Melissa. Anywho…
Melissa puts a public relations and sales spin on marketing. She delves a bunch into content marketing, but she focuses her attention on teaching you how to create RAVING FANS that cannot get enough of you and your business.
I completed her 5-day business challenge, Obsessed. And I’m about to dive face first into her guide The Irresistible Business Challenge. Yum-my! Delicious content that I can eat with a spoon.
