 7 Must-Read Internet Marketing Blogs

1. John’s blog is probably the best spot for affiliates who are looking for new ideas on how to make money online. Each day, features a new post detailing how to profit off of a different internet marketing niche or marketing technique. One of our favorite recent posts was How To Make 2013 Your Best Blogging Year, which provides step-by-step guidance on how to begin profiting from your blog posts.

2. Dukeo Written by Stephane Kerwer, Dukeo is similar to, in that it is  another frequent posting blog dedicated to helping affiliate make money online. The main selling difference between Dukeo and Chow is that Dukeo posts tons of lists. With everyone’s time at a premium, quickly scanning a Top 10 or Top 5 list provides a quick burst of information, without a large time commitment. Think of Dukeo as the In-and-Out of internet marketing blogs.

3. Zac’s blog is a must-read due to its focus on making money through paid advertising and SEO. Zac’s posts are full of search marketing tips that are simple to understand and implement. One of our favorite areas on Zac’s blog is his Affiliate Marketing Guide Book, which covers everything from the basics of affiliate marketing to more advanced social media advertising strategies.

4. AdRants Not your conventional internet marketing blog, AdRants primarily covers the traditional advertising industry (television ads, print campaigns etc.). What we like most about Steve Hall’s blog is that he constantly posts lists of parties for major internet marketing conferences (which comes in handy when trying to plan your conference activities) and his comprehensive sales, advertising and media position job board is a hit with job seekers.

5. Performance Marketing Insider Though not technically a blog, PMI is a great resource due to its frequent video content and informative e-blasts. Everyone loves watching Murray Newlands interview industry noisemakers and PMI email blasts cover all of the latest news in the affiliate marketing industry. Need to know which network just closed its doors or which one just opened for business? Check out PMI.

6. If you are passionate about Pay Per Click (PPC) marketing, is definitely a must-read due to their posts exploring more advanced PPC techniques. If you are a newbie, don’t let the advanced nature of’s posts scare you. Breaking a complex marketing technique into easy to understand terms is what makes such a great resource.

7. Ian is one of the most down-to-earth people that you will ever meet in the internet marketing industry. His easy going demeanor and ubiquitous presence at all major internet marketing conferences make him someone that you want to know more about. Ian’s posts are direct, practical and come from the perspective of a super affiliate.
