Top Marketing Blogs This Week: Email Marketing Tips, Empowerment And More

By January 5, 2013June 28th, 2015From Around The Web
{Web.Search.Social} Marketing Roundup

We love to blog (you may have noticed from the many several-thousand-word posts here) but we also love to read blogs. We find ideas, inspiration and meet some great people.

So I thought it was time to share some of those blogs with you – a roundup of some of the best we find each week so you can learn and be inspired, too.

This week’s selection comes from a group of pretty smart marketers I met through Triberr. As a side note, if you haven’t tried Triberr yet and you’re a blogger or a business person with a blog then make that your “right now” resolution. I guarantee you’ll boost your traffic, find great content and meet awesome people.

As we kick off a new year full of new hopes and new ideas, I encourage you to check out these blogs and to see what else these writers have to share. And if you come across any blogs that you think are worth making a roundup like this, let me know!

There are some interesting and non-obvious things on this list that will give you food for thought. If you’re in business and need a bit of inspiration, I have two words for you: “magnetic field.” Yup, go read it.

My 3 Words For 2013

Written by Jason Konopinski

You may be familiar with Chris Brogan’s “3 words” challenge. He encourages us to forget resolutions and think in terms of our 3 most powerful words for defining what the year ahead will mean to us. This post is Jason’s take on his 3 words. More food for thought here – I hope you’ll be inspired by his thoughts and find your own 3 words.

  • Hi Carol Lynn

    I only know one of the blogs you have listed and that is Christine Brady’s and love hers, I will take a look at the others. I love these type of posts (as you know I do this myself) it’s a great way of sharing and giving back 🙂
    Thanks for sharing
    Have a great weekend

    • I love them too! I’ve gotten such great stuff from other people that I decided to do it myself. I just met Christine within the past few months and I love her site. I hope you’ll enjoy some of the others, too. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Hi Carol Lynn,
    I haven’t heard of these blogs, and I am so glad you have shared them. It is great to find some good suggested ones, especially from you.

    Kudos to you for sharing this and paying it forward! I truly appreciate that. I will start clicking the links.

    Thanks so much,

    • I hope this will be a good way to share some great blogs that might otherwise be missed! I hope you find some to enjoy here, Donna. I could have made this “top 50 blogs” and still not had enough space 🙂 guess I’ll have to wait for next Saturday!

    Hey Carol,

    Okay, a few of these are in my tribes too so I know they share great stuff. The other few I’ve yet to check out so if you’re recommending them then they have to be good. I’ll be sure to put them on my list of blogs to go check out.

    Thanks for sharing and paying it forward. I have no doubt they appreciate it as well.

    I love your blog Carol. I have a suggestion for you. I read an ebook called Facebook Thief. The author suggested writing a post exactly like what you just did. Then he went one step further and emailed each of the authors saying very politely that he had featured their article in one of his posts and asking if they would mention his post about them on their Facebook page. (He sent a second 3 days later if no answer, then let it drop.) His top day was 22,000 hits on his page from facebook. Oh Hale Yes!!

    • Thank you Hale… that is an interesting suggestion! I know people get trackbacks on this sort of thing but I’m not sure how many notice (I know I get a lot of spammy ones, too). That’s a super idea!
