Digital marketing blogs may be numerous, but I find them to still be critical. I’ve been in digital marketing for 20 years, and the only way you can stay relevant that long is to read A LOT. In digital marketing, if you don’t learn you die. Period.24
I used Google Reader for quite a while, but after it me1t its demise I retreated to a familiar and comfortable (for me) method of keeping up on what’s going on in the industry….email. I subscribe via email, and read (or at least scan) nearly 50 blogs. It’s actually far more than that because several of the sources I devour are actually email aggregators that pull the best posts from many, many blogs. I find that gives me the best coverage.
Other members of the team at Convince & Convert have their own reading lists, based on their interests and their topical expertise. Together, we read nearly 150 online publications routinely.
I went through my email for the past week and put together this list of the 33 top digital marketing blogs that I read regularly. I put them into a list.ly format so you can vote for your own favorites. I’m eager to see which you read, as well.
If your blog isn’t on this list, it doesn’t mean I don’t read or don’t subscribe. I just don’t read it as routinely as I do these others. Please add your own suggestions in the comments, too, or add to the list.ly for digital marketing blogs I may have overlooked.
