The big list of top B2B marketing and sales blogsTop B2B Marketing and Sales Blogs

Updated: November 2010
Number of Blogs: 354

Thanks to all the B2B marketing and sales experts who continually blog, sharing your insights and adding to the collective knowledge or the broader B2B community.

Since we posted our original list of top B2B blogs, we’ve continued to update it periodically. Now, we’ve completed a comprehensive revision to the list.

Fresh. One criterion for making the list was having posts in the last 90 days at the time we reviewed the blogs. We’ve culled the list of those B2B blogs that have become inactive. Unfortunately, there were more than 60 of them, including blogs by some well-known B2B marketers. We’ll miss you! If you were previously on the list, let us know if you start blogging again.

New. We’ve researched and reviewed hundreds of potential B2B blogs and included more than 150 new blogs from B2B experts on the consultant, agency, and corporate sides.

Links to Twitter Profiles! We’ve included links to the Twitter profiles of the blogs’ primary authors. A lot of great B2B marketing experts to follow. Be sure to check them out! You can click the individual links below or in follow the list in Twitter via the list of B2B bloggers.

Individual RSS Feeds. Now you can click on the individual feed of a B2B blog you’re currently not following. At first we weren’t going to include this because we thought you could easily get the feed when visiting the blog. We found that wasn’t true. Close to ten percent of the blogs had issues with their feeds or had the wrong links listed for their feeds.

Categories. We’ve reviewed each B2B blog and categorized it based on its content so you can do a quick scan for what interests you most.

Sort it. Now you can search for B2B marketing and sales blogs on the list by sorting the list. Click on the headings of the table below to sort the list however you like.

Import It. The full list of feeds B2B Marketing and Sales Blogs is available for you to import into your RSS reader. We’ve made an opml file of all the blogs on the list. Simply right-click (Mac: control+click) on the preceding link, save the file, and import it into your RSS reader.

Criteria. Here are the general criteria that were used to evaluate blogs for inclusion on the The List of Top B2B Blogs.

  • Blog is at least 3 months old and has at least 10 posts
  • Must have at least one post in the last 90 days
  • Authors of posts are disclosed
  • More than half of the blog’s content is focused on B2B or highly relevant to B2B marketing or sales
  • Majority of posts are original content. Blogs that primarily point to others’ content without regularly adding meaningful insights and perspectives are not included.
  • Posts are not primarily self-promotional. Blogs with primarily self-promotional content are not included.

Grab a Badge

Badges. If your B2B blog is on the list, feel free to grab a badge and display it on your site. Please help us promote everyone who graciously contributes to the B2B community.

Getting on the List. How do blogs get on the list? We periodically do searches for great B2B marketing and sales blogs that meet the criteria above and meaningful standards of writing quality, usability, design, and posting frequency. When another blog links to the list of top B2B blogs, we get notified and check it out for potential inclusion; that’s probably the best way to get our attention. We know we’ve probably missed some great B2B blogs out there. If you’re a B2B blogger and your blog meets the criteria above, let us know if you want your blog to be reviewed and considered for the List of Top B2B Blogs.

Did we get anything wrong? Of course we did! While we try our best, we know we’ve misspelled something, got the wrong name of the blog, forgot to include a primary author, or something else. If your blog is one of the top B2B blogs on the list and we got something wrong or missed anything, let us know by using this correction/update form.

Thanks! Again, thank you to all those B2B bloggers who continue to contribute to this community. Hope you find the list helpful. For now, grab a cup of coffee and sit back. You might be here for a while!

Sweet! But who’s NUMBER ONE? Being type A, I can’t stand not knowing. JK. Mostly.

Hi, Rebekah. Wow. Rating and ranking would be another huge initiative. Perhaps soon. So much work goes into researching, evaluating, and compiling the blogs on the list, we thought we should get the list out there first. I was surprised to see how many new additions there were with this update. So many smart people to learn from!

Galen De Young ( @GalenDY ) August 27, 2010 at 8:18 am

Thanks, Jamie. You and the rest of the Savvy Sisters do a fantastic job of consistently creating valuable, relevant content for the B2B marketing community. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment!

Hi, Jeff. Thanks for stopping by, leaving a comment, and promoting the list on Twitter.

We really liked the idea of including links to authors’ Twitter profiles. But it turned out to be much more work than it should have been. In many cases, in some cases we had to search fairly hard for the authors on Twitter; a surprising number of blogs don’t have links to the Twitter profiles of authors. We had to review each of these profiles to determine which profiles to include. Because many people had multiple twitter profiles, we had to discern which profiles tweeted about B2B and which ones were personal and should not be linked to. Finding those profiles and deciding which ones was challenging, but I’m really happy to be able to include them. I know the Twitter links are a benefit for people reviewing the list, but it really opened my eyes to just how many other great contributors are out there who I hadn’t seen before.

Same was true for the RSS feeds. It was surprising how may people had issues with their feeds. Many didn’t work or had links to old feed addresses. Some had multiple links to the “feed”, but they all pointed to multiple feed addresses, and finding the right one took a few minutes. We called or emailed many authors whose feeds weren’t working right so we could include the feed.

Thanks, Jeff, for all you do via your blog and Twitter to promote great content for the community. Keep it coming!

Thanks for including us. Good to see so many folks from the B2B Marketing Zone in this list. I continue to think that we should somehow combine efforts on this.

Until then, if you are on the list and want to participate in the B2B Marketing Zone, please let me (or Tom Pick) know.

Hi, Martine. Thanks for your kind words, stopping by, and leaving a comment. Always glad to include MLT creative’s blog; it’s an easy inclusion. Your firm has contributed some great content to the B2B marketing community, and over the last year or so stepped up those contributions even more. Thanks so much to you and everyone on your team for doing so!

Hi Galen, thanks very much for the honor of being included on this outstanding list of resources. Checking out the names I’m not familiar with will keep me busy for a while. Beyond that, ditto what Tony Karrer says above.

Hi, Tom. Thanks for the kind words and the comment. Between Webbiquity, B2B Marketing Zone, and Twitter, you’ve been a huge contributor to making the B2B community smarter and more connected. Thank you! Re B2B Marketing Zone, as I mentioned above, I’ll be in touch offline to talk how we can work together. Keep up the great work! All the best, -Galen.

Thanks for including RainToday’s RainMaker Blog on your list. What a terrific resource you’ve put together. Many familiar sites, but lots of great new ones… I’m off to explore!

Hi, Mary. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I’ve been on the RainToday email list for years, but it hasn’t been until recently that I discovered the RainMaker Blog. Great stuff! Thanks for all you do to contribute to and promote the B2B community. – Galen

Hey Galen,

Thanks much for including my blog — although now you’re pulled me into reading even more great content from your fantastic list. Oh well, I’m sure I can afford another hour of procrastination!

Galen De Young ( @GalenDY ) August 27, 2010 at 8:15 am

Hi, Rob. So true. You can probably procrastinate for a week or more. Wouldn’t be hard with all the great content members on the list are contributing to the community. Thanks for what you contribute as well, both in your blog and via twitter. Always good stuff.

Hi, Jim. I have no doubt we’ve missed many great B2B blogs, including some well known ones we simply overlooked. Feel free to submit your blog for consideration using the link in the post above. We’ll be going through those submissions on a regular basis.

I take my blogs omission as a challenge! http://www.dontaskdontsell.com was written for B2B marketers who produce or attend events as a means to generate demand. Disappointed for not be included but appreciative the list.

Hi, Victor. Thanks for your comment. Despite the fact that we spend considerable time researching potential blogs…combing through accumulated Google Alerts we have set up for this purpose; clicking through the profile links of B2B people on Twitter to see if the person has a relevant blog; following links in posts and tweets; evaluating dozens of various blog lists created by others; clicking through all the potentially relevant links in the blogrolls of blogs we ran across; reviewing all of the requests for inclusion we had received; using search engines to find more B2B blogs…I have no doubt we’ve missed many great B2B blogs. Feel free to submit your blog for consideration using the link in the post above. We’ll be going through those submissions on a regular basis.

Galen,

I’ve always valued the inclusion of B2Bbloggers.com on this list, but is greatest value is the introduction of the many other wonderful blogs.

Great effort keeping this list updated.

Hi, Jeremy. I think you’re exactly right. After a while it’s easy to get complacent, not continuing to expand the search for new people to follow. For me, doing a major update to the list again showed me how many other smart people with great content are out there. Always more to learn. Thanks for the comment. And thanks for the great work you continue to do at B2B Bloggers and for helping moderate B2BChat.

I’ll join Victor (above) in seeing my blog’s omission as a challenge! Online Marketing: An Article A Day has well over 500 posts now, and over 1000 subscribers by email alone, so we must be doing something right. I won’t lose heart.
