When we launched Savvy B2B Marketing four months ago, we each had high expectations, but we never could have anticipated how fun and fulfilling this experience would be. Although we typically write about "practical advice and inspirational strategies," today we're breaking our routine to let you know how much we appreciate your interest, support and camaraderie. We'd also like to share some new resources with you.
One of our favorite parts about blogging is connecting with you. We're consistently amazed by your keen insights and generous spirits. We sincerely thank everyone who visits our corner of the blogosphere, especially those of you who take the time to leave comments, tweet our posts, or recommend our articles on LinkedIn. Your support is what fuels our enthusiasm, and your posts and links always open our eyes to new perspectives.
We've been honored to welcome guest posts from such renowned marketing practitioners as Casey Hibbard, Joe Pulizzi, Ardath Albee, Dianna Huff and Rebel Brown. We've also been flattered and sometimes flabbergasted to find that our posts garnered comments from well-known experts like David Meerman Scott, Jonathan Kranz, Mac McIntosh, and Peter Bowerman. We've enjoyed meeting others who, like us, are relatively new on the blogging scene - people like Mark W. Schaefer, Susan Fantle, and Blake Hinckley. Last but certainly not least, we can't forget out international friends like John Bottom, Doug Kessler, Sarah Mitchell, and Scott Gould. And there are many others as well!
We love being part of the online B2B marketing community, and we are pleased that we've been invited to participate in a couple of new sites:
B2B Marketing Zone: The brainchild of Tom Pick and Tony Karrer, this site features blog posts from top B2B marketing blogs covering a wide range of topics. Many of our favorite blogs are included here, and we also found some new ones to follow. It's a veritable all-you-can-eat buffet of B2B Marketing goodness, and we think you'll find plenty to enjoy.
ClickIdeas: Another new destination is ClickIdeas. This posterous site is a repository of blog posts compiled by Ambal Balakrishnan on content marketing and is another place we go to see what's hot.
We also just found out today that we have been included in the list of Junta42 Top 42 Content Marketing Blogs. What an honor! This is a list definitely worth checking out; 276 content marketing blogs are included.
In addition, we are always on the lookout for great B2B marketing resources to share with you. We have just expanded and reorganized our Resources section so you can more easily browse our favorite blogs, websites, eBooks, newsletters/magazines, and associations. If you're looking for a bit of inspiration, check it out.
Today, we raise a toast to all of our newfound friends. We appreciate each and every one of you, and look forward to hearing from you. Please leave a comment or drop us an email to say hello or let us know if you'd like us to cover any specific topics. It's been a great run so far, and we look forward to whatever the future has in store. Thanks for being part of our Savvy journey.
