What are the best marketing blogs out there?
I'm constantly looking for ways to stay up to date on trends/news and so I would love to see everyone's favorite marketing blogs!
I'd be willing to hear about books as well, but am hesitant as marketing trends seem to change too quickly to be published and eternally relevant.
Here are a list of sites I often find great tips and news on marketing:
Hope that helps!
There are lot many and believe me more your resources on marketing, more you get confused.
In marketing, so be in digital or by any other mode, you need be specific on what you want to achieve or what you are pitching and how shall I generate more sales (valuable) from my marketing campaign.
Of course, you can take help of market expert in your company and discuss for planning it in advance.
I generally read HubSpot these days, but as said, even a simple Google search can help.
My personal favorites are Moz.com/blog, Search Engine Land, SEO Roundtable, ClickZ and SEO Book.
While many of these are geared specifically toward Internet Marketing, it's pretty important to note that this field has basically become a necessary component of traditional marketing, anyway.
This blog you have the opportunity to understand the digital market in Brazil .

My favourites are as follows:
MarketingProfs, Copyblogger, Social Media Examiner, Social Media Today, Hubspot, Social Media Revolver, Social Fresh, Lighthouse Insights, Razor Social, 60 Second Marketer, Digital Marketing Blog and Small Biz Trends.

This is a great, great book. http://www.amazon.com/Contagious-Why-Things-Catch-On/dp/1451686579
I also really enjoy these facebook groups:
There are literally dozens of blogs and websites, and separating the wheat from the chaff is difficult - you can spend hours reading all the stuff out there, listening to podcasts, etc to find that one nugget that you need.
That being said, there are 3 that I seem to return to regularly: John Jantz's Duct Tape Marketing (http://www.ducttapemarketing.com/blog/), HubSpot (http://blog.hubspot.com), and Social Media Examiner (www.socialmediaexaminer.com).
For my business, in it's current stage of development, I find the info on these sites relevant, insightful and current.
YMMV, and all the usual caveats...
There are so many good ones out there, but for general marketing news, I'll add two more URL's to the list:
Search Engine Watch (great, long-time established, reliable resource): http://searchenginewatch.com/
The American Marketing Association: http://www.marketingpower2.com/mpblog/
Hope this helps!
Check out the search engine journal and the search engine land!
They are both great!
I contribute for the search engine journal and if you like adwords you will definitively like my articles: http://www.searchenginejournal.com/author/rocco-baldassarre/
All the best,
