5 Top Marketing Blogs by Entrepreneurs

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#start#tips Entrepreneurs always seem to have great insights to share derived from their very real experiences. Unlike most people, many entrepreneurs are an open book, willing to share everything they know and have done with anyone willing to listen. They’re thankful for all those other entrepreneurs they looked up to when they were just starting out, who were sharing all of their great, unfiltered wisdom. In no particular order, here is a list of top marketing blogs written by entrepreneurs who, rather than just being analysts and observers of how great marketing works, have implemented successful marketing campaigns for their businesses. Danny Wong is the co-founder of Blank Label Group and runs the e-commerce startups Blank Label, Thread Tradition and RE:custom. Noah KaganWhile Kagan doesn’t update OkDork.com too frequently, you most certainly get gems of information from the guy who used to work as a product manager at Facebook and was the director of marketing at Mint.com. Having worked at a company that sold to Intuit for $170 million in two years, Kagan certainly knows how to build a business for success. Just sample a few of his great posts and see for yourself.

Traction VerticalsMy Experiences with Ad.lyA FB Ad Targeted at One Person (my wife)Michael Fox22Michaels.com is perhaps the most transparent entrepreneur blog I’ve ever seen. Michael Fox is the co-founder of custom women’s shoes site Shoes of Prey, which has received 1.5 million visits in the last three months. Fox reveals sensitive information such as traffic, metrics from marketing campaigns, even site conversion rates. In addition to telling all, he gives other entrepreneurs a sense of what went right, what went wrong and how to replicate his marketing tactics for their own businesses.
