It’s simple, to help keep a pulse on the online marketing industry, I read and participate in blog conversations.
There’s a long list of blogs that I make time to read, but here’s 5 to get you started (each is linked to a post to get you started with)…
1) John Carlton’s The Marketing Rebel Rant.
An absolute must-read for anyone in marketing, period. John is a hall-of-fame copywriter, edgy writer, and all-around good guy.
2) Ryan Healy’s Business Growth Strategies.
Ryan is a good friend of mine, and fellow copywriter. His blog covers a wide array of topics, but pay close attention to when Ryan decides to get controversial…because those are his best posts IMHO.
3) Terry Dean’s Internet Business Coaching Blog
Terry and I have never met. But, his story is priceless. He was a pizza delivery driver turned internet marketer. He also retired once already, but returned to online marketing. His blog contains the “no fluff, no filler” types of posts that are what I call “textbook internet marketing”.
4) Michel Fortin’s “On Copywriting, Marketing, and Life” Blog
Michel Fortin really doesn’t need an introduction (and neither does his wife Sylvie). I consider both to be friends, but more importantly if you read and absorb the content on Michel’s site (and on http://internetmarketingsins.com) you’ll be ahead of 90% of all marketers online AND offline…period.
5) Jeremy Shoemaker’s “Shoemoney” blog
The moniker “Skills To Pay The Bills”…need I say anything else? When you read Jeremy’s posts, you’ll always be tempted to debate with him…he’s just that good of a blogger. If there was a “Blogger Hall of Fame” he’d be one of the first inductees for sure.
Well, there you have it…5 blogs that I can read and recommend to you.
Oh yeah, there’s this one too. 🙂
Until the next time we look in the mirror together,
How many blogs do you read and participate in?
