Kissmetrics is one of those that have been around for a while. They offer marketers complete solutions and run an active and insightful blog. Apart from their great blog, they offer a fantastic analytics tool that is developed solely to grow businesses and see results.
Essentially Moz was established as an SEO service provider. The company has since its founding date in 2004, evolved a couple of times, dropped SEO, taken it back on. This is, however, a blog to start following for all the latest in SEO trends and general digital marketing developments.
3. Neil Patel
Neil Patel only recently launched a marketing agency, in this year to be precise, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have the goods to bring to the table. Considered one of the most influential digital marketers out there today, you’d be plain silly not to follow his blog. Neil’s guides and tips on his blog is crafted in such a way that even those not clued up will be able to follow it, no problem-o!
