Recommended Websites for Marketers
The Web is full of excellent resources for marketers. Here are some of my recommended sites:
Plenty of articles, checklists and case studies for marketing professionals, with a bent toward B-to-B. I am proud to have contributed scads of seminars and articles to MarketingProfs myself.
Weekly opportunity to vote on the expected results of a real-life A/B split test, plus analysis of the actual results. Brilliant, educational and fun.
A website and newsletter with abundant case histories, real numbers and "how they did it" detail. My favorite is their B2BMarketingBiz weekly newsletter.
A vast collection of resources for marketers of professional services.
Thought leadership on the emerging field of content development and usage in B-to-B marketing.
Hundreds of research reports reveal the results of useful marketing experiments.
Thoughtful commentary on frequency marketing strategy and tactics.
All the stats you could ever want about marketing on the Internet.
