Blogs To Read For Inspiration and Information

Blogs To Read For Inspiration and Information

I get a lot of questions on how I manage to stay up to date on marketing and digital strategy. The answer is simple. I read a lot of blogs that are written by people who are much smarter than I am and have a lot more experience. These guys paved the way for me, and they can do the same for you. It’s not rocket science. The more you read, the more you will realize that it is not that some practitioners are super smart or geniuses (everything we see around us is created by people no smarter than you or I) but that they have read the right things.
