Top 20 Marketing Websites For Marketers and Entrepreneurs
After sitting in the kitchen of a friend's home in Vail, I find myself spending literally hours trawling through websites on marketing from around the world. I am interested in what people have to say, their opinions and their advice. Sometimes the advice is game-changing and other times it is a little waste of effort.
With entrepreneurs surrounding me, I constantly ask them what they read online, what apps they download and what is the best marketing campaigns that they have seen. Its an interesting conversation and everyone seems to have a number of websites they love that is consistent with the others and a few have a some 'pearlers' that are untapped by the average entrepreneur that is a must-have resource.
In no particular order, I find myself going back time and time again to these websites and I am sure you will agree, there is a good reason. Being inspired, learning something new or being reminded of the things that you need to do in order to be more successful, is something that I live for.
