15 Best Blogs for Email Marketers

15+ Best Email Marketing Blogs You Need to Be Following

Despite new appearing forms, a good old blog remains the main source of information on industry-specific topics, including email marketing. The first place to look for good digital marketing blogs of this type is on websites of email automation tools and software. Since they sell and promote the related products, their authors, who are often professional marketers and designers, know the inside of the industry and deliver quality articles.

But even the reputable name of the hosting website doesn’t guarantee you’ll find on its blog trustworthy information. The challenge doubles when you’re new to marketing and don’t know yet how to filter out irrelevant facts.

Characteristics of a Good Email Marketing Blog

So what indicators may tell you you’re seeing a good blog for email marketers?

  • Explicit topical content. The blog should cover topics relevant to email marketing: contact list building, segmentation, automation, deliverability, sender reputation, email design, campaign types, etc. However, if the blog range is too wide and covers topics from contactless payment to drone delivery, you might be dealing with a news site or marketplace. They may post good material but the level of the expertise in them will be lower.
  • Diverse formats. Featured article, interview, expert opinion, white paper, infographics, ebook, templates, Q&A – the more diverse the content, the more people are involved in its creation, and the more versatile insights you’ll have.
  • Expert opinion. The articles on the blog shouldn’t be just copywriting of the general information. They should have precise data, applicable examples, current statistics, links to recent studies, etc. and not just rewrite years old material.
  • Benchmarks. It’s a good sign when the company does its own research and shares it publicly. It’s even better when such benchmarks include research methodology: what data is collected, who it’s collected from and how, how it's analyzed, and how the rates are calculated.
  • Marketing news. Aside from featured material, the online marketing blog should tell about the recent news of the digital marketing world. New customer policies (CCPA, LGPD), innovations by email clients (Quieter Permission by Gmail), technological updates (AMP support for mobiles) – blog articles should help a marketer keep up to date with modern changes.
  • Case studies. Case studies not only work as a testimonial of the platform’s credibility, but they also provide valuable data on the practical implementation of this or that marketing practices.
  • Quality guest authors. Since you can’t be an expert in everything, an article by a guest author is a good way to get professional expertise on more topics.
  • Credits. Although this characteristic goes the last but one, I believe it’s one of the most important blog article features. Links to the mentioned reports or articles, images with sources and redirection to profiles of the quoted authors make a blog article a professional piece of writing and help the reader navigate the info more easily.
  • Regular posts. A consistent post schedule tells you that this blog is alive and is updated in real time. If you see that articles are published irregularly and without a distinct schedule, such a blog won't be of much use for your marketing exploration.

Best internet marketing blogs
