2009 Big List of B2B Marketing Blogs | Proteus B2B | B2B Marketing Blog

2009 Big List of B2B Marketing and Sales Blogs

Galen De Young ( @GalenDY ) | B2B Social Media | August 28th, 2009

Big-List-B2B-Blogs
With all the micro-blogging, I’ve often wondered whether the number of bloggers who actually create original, substantial content is decreasing. Don’t get me wrong, you can create meaningful thought in 140 characters, but it’s a lot easier to write 140 characters (no matter how well crafted) than it is to consistently create original content for a blog. And that ease may have driven many to abandon blogging or not even consider blogging when there is a relatively easy way to start “blogging” on Twitter.

It’s been more than two years since anyone had tried to pull together a list of B2B marketing and sales blogs. Jon Miller of Marketo did it in early 2007. When we reviewed that list, we found a lot of those blogs were no longer active.

So we went searching…

And we found some really great B2B blogs. More than 200 of them. Hats off to all who made the list! Thanks for your continuing contribution.

In pulling this list together, blogs had to meet the following criteria:

    • The blog had to have recent posts

• The blog had to be active for at least three months
• If new, the blog had to already have a decent amount of relevant content
• The blog didn’t have to be entirely B2B, as long as the content was relevant to B2B
• If the blog had few recent posts, it needed to have substantial historical content

Although we spent a great deal of time, I’m sure we’ve missed some great blogs. Perhaps even some obvious ones. If you know of others, please let me know. We’ll review them for the above criteria and add them as appropriate.

If you want to import the 2009 Big List of B2B Marketing and Sales Blogs into your RSS reader, here’s a link to the opml file: Right-click on the link and save the file, then import the file into your reader. Mac users, control-click and save.

We’ll update the list and the OPML file every month. If your blog is on the list, feel free to display a Top B2B Blogs badge on your site.

How do blogs get on the list? We’ll keep our eyes open for other B2B marketing and sales blogs that meet the criteria above and meaningful standards of writing quality, usability, design, and posting frequency. If you know of another’s blog that meets the above criteria and should be considered, please let us know via our contact form.

Special thanks to Mike Marn, who helped research and evaluate a tremendous number of blogs.

    • Galen & Mike,

      Thanks for taking the time to publish the B2B blog list.

      It’s great to help build out the B2B community with efforts like this.

      P.S. Thanks so much for including my Acquiring Minds blog.

    • Hi Galen and Mike,

      Thanks very much for this comprehensive list. Definitely bookmarked it immediately!

      And thanks very much for including my Marketing Interactions blog.

      I’d like to suggest the addition of Tom Pick’s Web Market Central blog:
      http://webmarketcentral.blogspot.com/

      Comment by Ardath Albee on August 29, 2009

    • Hi, Ardath

      You had me worried for a minute there. It clearly would have been an omission to forget Tom’s blog, so I had to scan the list again. It was there, near the bottom…starts the “The WebMarket…”. Thanks for the comment and for tweeting the post. If you think of any others, please let me know.

      Have a great weekend!

    • Hi Galen & Mike,

      Well done for pulling together such a comprehensive and high quality list – and glad that my blog sneaked in under the radar somehow!

      It’s one of the ironies of technology that we now have the technology to make our own, unique tailored lists of relevant blogs for us – but not the time to do so. You’ve really saved a lot of people a lot of time & research pain in producing this.

    • Hi, Jim

      Looks like a good blog ( knowledgebanks.wordpress.com ). It started off good in May, but hasn’t had any posts since July. One of the criteria we use for evaluating blogs for the list, especially for young blogs, is a demonstrated dedication to posting. Too many young blogs start with good intentions, only to fall off later. If you start posting again on a regular basis for a while, please send us a message to take another look. Thanks.

    • hi folks:
      sharon drew morgen here.
      my blog is http://www.sharondrewmorgen.com

      it’s currently around 10 on the top 100 sales/marketing sites, and my work is firmly routed in the B2B category. i write 5x/week, and at least 4 per week devoted to promoting other b2b professionals or articles on my b2b collaborative decision making model, Buying Facilitation(R). i’m the author of the NYTimes Bestseller Selling with Integrity and the new book Dirty Little Secrets: why buyers can’t buy and sellers can’t sell and what you can do about it.
      what would need to happen to include me in your listing?
      thanks folks.

    • I recommend you add SharonDrewMorgen.com to your list of B2B websites. Great woman using her Buying Facilitation method to assist the buying decision process.

    • An amazing effort – thanks! If I may make a suggestion? The list appears to have one voice from the Inbound Marketing Automation world, that of HubSpot. An excellent choice – one of the best. I’d humbly like to suggest our blog. Been active since July and it offers a more comprehensive picture of this emerging trend.
      Thanks.

    • Yikes.
      Makes me feel insignificant.
      Maybe Velocity needs to niche out a bit.

    • Galen, I just discovered your list today – what a rich resource! It’s going to take some time to go through it. The exercise will be well worth it, I’m sure.

      I’d like to suggest Hinge’s blog, which has been active for several years and contains (among other things) insights from our ongoing research into professional services marketing.

      Thanks again for this compendium!

    • Hi. We have a pretty fresh blog all about B2B. Hope we make your 2010 list!

      Cheers

    • While we would have loved to have been included, this really is a good list of sites that I frequent regularly. And, this is a fabulous piece of linkbait!

      Comment by Dave on January 26, 2010

    • Oh, and I should probably add that our B2B blog can be found at http://www.davekahle.com/salesblog, and I think you’ll find it also meets your criteria (as many of our blogroll friends appear to, as well).

      Comment by Dave on January 26, 2010

    • Fabulous list! Thanks for the resource!

      Comment by Jan Bolick on February 2, 2010

    • Great list! This post is definitely a bookmark!

      I’d like to add the B@B blog of http://www.salesproductivityinsider.com – for sales leaders and sales pros. New content throughout the week with timely tips to increase sales.
