In this week’s #CMworld chat, one of the questions was “What are your favorite sources (people, websites, brands) for content marketing inspiration and advice?” This was an easy one for me to answer, since I’ve made a habit of keeping an ever-expanding list of content marketing pros in my feedly RSS reader and via my twitter content marketing list. I also setup a weekly content marketing paper.li to make sure I didn’t miss some of the more widely shared and read articles from my twitter feed. (@marketingprofs @moz @hubspot @marketo @socialfresh were the names I dropped, if you were wondering).
It was via paper.li that I came across the above slideshare from Michael Brenner, which is a great introduction to a number of key marketing influencers you should be following if you aren’t already. What makes this influencer list worth checking out? Unlike many other influencer lists, which read more like a #FollowFriday bucket list of influential friends, this Slideshare gives the context of their unique POV on the trends you should be keeping an eye on that will influence the future of marketing.
Check it out to see what some of my favorite marketers and social biz pros– like Ann Handley, Todd Wheatland, and Nick Kellet– have to say, and you should find some new sources of content marketing inspiration to follow. I know I did!
Did Michael miss one of your favorite marketing experts? Or do you have a favorite marketing resource to share? Let me know in the comments.
