Navigating the flea market of social and marketing bloggers can be a daunting task, especially if you do not know where to begin. Let me make this easy for you – there are no good ways to begin, you just, well, need to start following those people who you feel most connected to, who are the most interesting (luckily, there are quite a few of those) and just take it from there.
A lot of people, even though they are up to their necks in SEO and social network marketing, can’t tell you about every single blogger you need to follow – luckily for you, we have made a list and we’re certain that you’ll find something that suits your reading habits. They are quirky, they will help you create your marketing strategy, and they will cover interesting topics.
Note: We put them here in no particular order, and especially not according to quality.
Rebekah is well known for using plenty of clear examples in any topic. This makes her blog posts extremely easy to read and understand, as well as apply to your own strategies. She recently made the most important social media checklist any marketer will see this year. Not only is this a highly actionable post, but it will give you a clear glance at the current. She mostly focuses on the how instead of the why, when talking about social media.
While Danny is not focused on usual tips and tricks, he tries to encompass a much bigger picture. He deals with topics such as the future of online conversation, the usefulness of comments and how Facebook and Twitter replaced good ol’ bloggers. He focuses on how you should create better stories for your audience, improve your business in that way, and your life. Learn to harness the story of the internet, the innovation of online interaction, and you’ll stay at the crest of the wave of social media marketing.
While Instagram pulled some of the marketers away from Pinterest, it still hasn’t made any real effect that could stop this social media giant. This blog is run by Cynthia Sanchez and it focuses, well, on Pinterest, the best methods of advertising there, as well as creating unique content that will suit the style of this network. She considers Pinterest to be one of the most important organic drivers of traffic for publishers. She now runs a successful podcast project, which is an even better version, as you can listen to her suggestion while doing something else.
Instagram has never been more popular, and while some may argue that this network is not as complex as some of the competition and does not offer the same advantages, Jenn Herman begs to differ. She has become one of the globally recognized names in this niche, in record time. Her blog focuses on the unique approach and the content needed for Instagram, emphasizing that not everyone can post momentarily to Instagram. She creates a clear process that could help any business owner, or marketing enthusiast.
She is not only one of the most influential social media experts, but she is also a co-author of the book, with a colleague, Guy Kawasaki, titled “The Art of Social Media”. In simple words, she is pretty important. She is everywhere you go, she has all kinds of knowledge, and is a top blogger with good advice for any network that you dare use. She, as well as the others mentioned on this list, focuses on creating resourceful content with practical advice about anything, from Pinterest, to creating stunning images with little to no previous knowledge.
He is the founder of one of the most visited social media blogs in the world – RazorSocial. While not all blog posts are written by him, he tries to gather all kinds of opinions and experts from the field, in order to create the biggest encyclopedia of social media tools. The blog is aimed at those who are not sure how to make online marketing work for them, instead of vice versa. This blog offers a lot of categories, and we are sure you will find anything you need there.
