Below you will find a list of all of the online resources I use regularly. Some are online tools like Hootsuite and Mailchimp, while others are blogs and thought leaders in the web design/seo/digital marketing industries.
I have no affiliation with these organizations, so I won’t be making money if you click through to find out more about them; rather, they are here to demonstrate that I am constantly reading about latest strategies, trends and developments in the markets I serve.
HubSpot is one of THE leaders in the Inbound Marketing world. No lie. I read virtually every blog post the produce, and believe me… they publish all the time! If you are wanting to know where many of my inbound marketing ideas stem from, this is a likely place!The Hubspot Marketing Blog
Sitepoint not only provides excellent resources for all things coding, they actually have a full-on subscription based learning suite that you can join monthly or annually and get trained on all sorts of subjects. If you are looking to expand your knowledge, you really HAVE to check these guys out.Sitepoint
Rand Fishkin is like GOD to SEO. If he doesn’t know what’s going on, nobody does. I read his stuff religiously (pun intended) and try to catch as many WBFs (White Board Fridays) as I can. If you are looking for in depth knowledge on all things SEO, this is the place to start!Moz Blog
Hootsuite is an online tool we use to manage social shares from. Essentially, you write the post once, choose which social networks you want it blasted to and schedule a time and day you want it sent out. Sounds good don’t it?!
They have a free version and a ‘premium’ version for $10/month. If you can afford, the $10 it just means you can connect more social networks… so, totally optional if you’re just looking for a simple solution to a small business.Hootsuite
I highly recommend looking into Mailchimp if you are considering using an automated email newsletter for a marketing scheme. Their free version is super robust and until your business scales to having more than 2000 members in its newsletter list, you won’t have to pay a dime… and if you end up with more than 2000 members, well, that sounds like a really good problem to have!Mailchimp
Neil Patel, perhaps THE content writing guru if content writing is truly the best of the best when it comes to content writing strategies. His insights are based on substantial research and trends. He is constantly updating his blog and should be read regularly! (Like daily if not more often!!!)Quicksprout
