There are a lot of great resources out there, just waiting to be sent to your inbox. While some of them are international newsletters, you can still learn some interesting things -plus, keeping an eye on trends and what other people are doing can’t hurt.
One of the best resources we’ve found is Bizcommunity (South African based). Their categories include advertising, branding, design, digital, direct marketing, media, PR & communications, retail and youth marketing. Something for every business, that’s for sure.
Another great source is LinkedIn – a professional networking site where you can “exchange information, ideas and opportunities.” There are tons of groups and forums where you can ask questions, give feedback, and make connections.
Here are some other marketing websites we’ve ‘Stumbled Upon’:
Marketing Power – this website has a list of newsletters
There are plenty of other websites, videos, blogs just waiting for you to click on them.
Our tip for the week: Set a time (daily/ weekly) where you can sit on the web and search for people having similar experiences to you. People that are doing things you would like to. People in similar industries to you. We’re not saying copy them, but learn from them. After all, what is the point of having all this information at our finger tips if we are not using it to our advantage!
