4 Great Digital Marketing and Social Media Blogs You Need to Know About


Sharing is caring. That’s why today I’m sharing some of my favorite marketing and social media blogs you need to know about. But I’m not going to give you the normal list of ‘top marketing experts’ like Gary Vaynerchuk, Jeff Bullas, Seth Godin…let’s throw a female in there shall we, Mari Smith...because that would be a snooze and too easy. Not to say the aforementioned figures aren’t amazing at what they do, I just want to throw a couple of names you may not have heard of, that I really trust and admire for different reasons. the best marketing and social media blogs you need to know...

Ted Rubin

I can’t say enough good things about Ted Rubin. I had the pleasure of meeting him two years ago during SXSW, where he gave me a signed copy of his book. This past SXSW we all met up one night on a whim via Twitter of course! And he then invited J and me to a panel that he was speaking on the next day. He is one of the nicest, most sincere people I have ever met and he knows his shit. This book put everything in perspective for me and severely changed my outlook of how I approach relationships both in real life and online. (In a good way of course!)

Rebekah Radice

Rebekah‘s blog stands out to me because it’s focused, easy to read and relatable. It’s also not all ‘me, me, me’. A lot of super popular blogs I’ve noticed are constantly trying to sell their products, services or selves to you while you’re simply trying to access their content. I get it, we all need to make a pretty penny, but that’s why I enjoy Rebekah’s blog. Yes, she has some banner ad’s promoting her products, but it’s not plastered all over. Super valuable and actionable posts as well. 

Rebekah is a social media strategist, speaker and digital marketing specialist. As well as the Chief Experience Officer of Imagine WOW. You can read her blog here and follow her @RebekahRadice.


Curalate is one of my current favorites. I’m ALL about UGC (User-generated Content) and so are they. See, they even have a whole tab for UGC. I love how they present and layout their blog posts. They are a data and results-driven marketing product. This gives them the unique ability to gather TONS of useful data and insights from big brands that most of us wouldn’t normally have access to. The case studies are fascinating and their blog never disappoints.

Curalate is the world’s leading marketing and analytics suite for the visual web. They have GREAT webinars and are constantly offering free PDF’s so be sure to follow them! @Curalate.

Noah Kagan

A true Austinite; lover of breakfast tacos and marketing, Noah Kagan’s blog is super no frills and aptly titled, “OkDork”. What I love about Noah is that he lays it all out there, isn’t afraid to use his failures as good learning lessons and always is sure to inject a good amount of humor into his posts. I subscribe to his email newsletter and it’s great. He’s also always giving away useful/free marketing products! (Who doesn’t love the price of free?)

Noah is the Chief Sumo at AppSumo.com, where he promotes cool tools and content to help entrepreneurs kick more ass. Before that he was a ‘cubicle monkey’ at Intel, #30 at Facebook and #4 at Mint. Explore Noahs’ blog HERE and @NoahKagan

There are SO many more but there are just some of my favorite go-to’s. I’d love to hear what social media blogs I need to know about!

    Thank you so much for adding me to your list Lauren. What an honor! It is a balancing act we all have to walk when marketing our business online. What is too much and what’s not enough? It’s something every marketer has to figure out.

    I love your bio by the way! Very fun and makes it easy to connect with a real person behind the blog.

      Thank you so much for talking to time to take a look at my post and comment. I really enjoy your blog and love finding people I can look up to and model my business practices after. Haha thank you! It’s taking me such a long time to get that bio written. For a long time I was paralyzed by anxiety of worrying what other’s thought, but then one day it just clicked and I just said, “I’m just going to be me, take it or leave it!” I think it’s working alright so far.
      Again, thank you for connecting and I look forward to that webinar on the 30th!
