Experts I Follow

Marketing and business pros we all can learn from

No one person can keep up with all the marketing choices in platforms, methods and tools. So I’ve compiled my list of go-to people, many whom I’ve been following for over ten years. I read their blogs and email newsletters, listen to their podcasts, webinars and Facebook Lives as well as courses. These are speakers, authors and entrepreneurs that help me keep up with marketing and business trends so I can share it with my audience. I’ve always noticed that early adopters of a new opportunity make the most profits before mass adoption and price escalation. Check out the list of free Courses too; many are taught by the experts on this list.
