There certainly is no deficit of good content on digital marketing these days. In fact, so much of it is being produced daily that it becomes really hard to follow it all. There were days when I’d spend at least 1/3 of my time at the computer — just reading. This took away from the hours that should have been spent on other activities. So, to stay focused and read only what’s essential to my business, I compiled a list of Twitter accounts that belong to the resources I want to read daily. I can’t afford to spend the time reading everything that they publish; so a Twitter feed like this allows me to see all of their headlines in one place, and choose which ones to click and read.
I realize that everyone’s list will be different, but hoping my readers will pick up a few useful resources from the below list as well:
- Econsultancy — Tweets of Econsultancy.com’s blog posts, information, training and events on best practice online marketing and e-commerce.
- Search Engine Journal — Search marketing news and tutorials.
- Mashable — Tweets from the world’s largest blog focused exclusively on Web 2.0 and Social Media news.
