If you’re reading this, you clearly have good taste in marketing blogs. However, as much as we appreciate your visit, we also pride ourselves on recommending other sources of knowledge, experience and wisdom. Below are 11 blogs that every marketing manager will find invaluable.

The Drum

You may already read The Drum, as it’s a major provider of news for the marketing and media industries. However, are you making full use of the Opinion section? With business leaders taking free reign over what they say without restraint, it can prove quite the eye-opener.

MailChimp

Though this blog obviously talks about its own services a fair bit, you can learn a lot from its team of email marketing experts. With methods of accessing and interacting with email campaigns changing practically by the day, it’s well worth checking in regularly to keep on top of trends.

The Content Strategist

An eye-catching and incredibly useful bank of digital insight, filled with up-to-the-minute information on content marketing patterns and applications.

Brain Pickings

This one’s a bit different. Maria Popova is the sole writer of an extremely popular source of inspiration, creativity and lateral thinking. Though not a marketing blog, the site offers food for thought on art, literature, culture, society, science, psychology and numerous other themes, which is an excellent way to keep your mind active, open and inventive.
