25 top inbound marketing blogs to follow in 2020

25 top inbound marketing blogs to follow in 2020 Blog Feature

November 23rd, 2019 min read

Since IMPACT's founding 10 years ago, we as a company have invested tremendous time and effort into the creation of helpful, in-depth content and articles about inbound marketing strategies that get results. That commitment has helped raise our profile as an agency and today drives nearly 700,000 visits to our website a month and 30,000+ subscribers.

What started as a company blog has now become a full-fledged brand publication — and now, with so many marketers, sales pros, and business leaders visiting our site every month, we are frequently asked what we consider to be some of the other great inbound marketing blogs.  

To be frank, there are a lot of different inbound marketing resources out there, but not all of them will have a direct, bottom-line impact on your business and/or your career. 

Which is why we've hand-selected the following 25 inbound marketing blogs, because they will actually help you craft revenue-generating digital marketing strategies and develop professionally (and as business leaders).

In our opinion, these blogs are well, for lack of a better word, addictive.

Whether you're a CEO, blogger, office manager or content writer, here is our list of inbound marketing blogs you just can't miss.

25 great inbound marketing blogs

1. HubSpot

HubSpot's website is, without a doubt, the mother ship for all things inbound marketing. The company's blog is overflowing with content that most marketers we know, including the team here at IMPACT, read religiously.

Simply one of the best inbound marketing blogs out there!

2. Ann Handley

Ann Handley is a writer, digital marketing pioneer, and Wall Street Journal best-selling author who writes and speaks about how businesses can escape marketing mediocrity through their content. We love Ann's blog both for its top notch inbound marketing advice and insights as well as the wit and humor that Ann brings to her articles.

3. DigitalMarketer

DigitalMarketer is a premier online community for digital marketing professionals. The company's mission is to double the size of 10,000 businesses in the next five years and it is doing this by showing marketers, entrepreneurs and business owners how to run effective digital marketing campaigns that drive more traffic, sales and profit. The company's blog contains practical educational articles about all aspects of digital marketing, with many of the techniques having already been tested by the company's own team of marketing experts.

4. The PR 20/20 Blog

The PR 20/20 blog spins fresh content daily from various writers. The topics covered include strategy, content, SEO, social, PR, email and marketing technologies. The leadership team behind PR 20/20 is the same group that created the Marketing Artificial Intelligence Institute, so its no surprise that the company's blog is one of the best sourced in the inbound marketing industry for news, updates and insights on AI.

This is a great blog to subscribe to if you're aiming to stay on the cutting edge of marketing technology, but also want to dive deeper into more traditional topics like PR and social media.
