Top Marketing Blogs And Websites

marketing blogs, procurement sitesWe all have our favourite blogs and industry websites for keeping up-to-date with news, developments, trends and opinion. Here are a few of mine across marketing, advertising, procurement and music. If you can recommend any others to readers of this blog, please use the comments box at the end.

Marketing Blogs

Marketing Magazine is a key title in the Haymarket stable. My favourite column is by Dave Trott - a constant source of wit & distilled insight.

Marketing Week, run by Centaur, has the ever-entertaining and often controversial Mark Ritson. I particularly liked his piece on Millennials.

Campaign is targeted at agencies though many marketers read it too. The weekly column by Jeremy Bullmore is truly brilliant. A man of whom Nigel Bogle, co-founder of BBH once said: “Jeremy Bullmore remains the one person in British advertising for whom the brilliance-to-bullshit ratio is 100:0.”

Procurement Blogs

Spend Matters UK speaks to the procurement community run by irrepressible music fan Peter Smith. His review of 2015 demonstrates his finger is still very much on the pulse.

Procurious is sometimes called the LinkedIn of the procurement community. It’s a fast-growing international and engaged community. You’ll need to sign-up to read their blog.

CIPS’ members are in supply chain management and procurement. Their CEO blog is always interesting.

Advertising Blogs

I’m a big fan of ISBA, the UK trade body for advertisers. Their blog is always worth a read, particularly this piece on marketing procurement.

WFA is the international trade body for advertisers. Their blog is a must-read for global marketers especially this excellent post by Steve Lightfoot on the need to embed procurement into marketing teams.

Music Industry Blogs

For music news, CMU is essential reading. Always informative and usually highly irreverent, it’s part of my daily diet of news. The And Finally column is always hilarious.

Music Business Worldwide seems to be fastest on key news stories. A brilliant site run by the hyper-connected Tim Ingham.

Mark Mulligan of MIDIA has long been a highly respected analyst. His blog always has the smartest insight on the global music industry.

Synchblog is expertly curated by Emma Griffiths with insightful perspectives on the UK & US music supervision and sync industries.

4pt5, curated by Charlotta Buxton, is the blog for Music4.5 – it’s essential reading for the music and tech communities.

I would highly recommend adding all of these sites to your RSS reader, and while you're at it add this blog too! If you have any suggestions of blogs to follow for those working in marketing and procurement, please leave a link with a bit of background information below.
