An Ultimate List Of Marketing Communities

Posted by simplelogicplaintext on 125 Points
I compiled a list of communities about digital marketing, social media management or any other form of online entrepreneurship (naturally, MarketingProfs is in it :)).

This list was started for my own personal needs, but I soon realized it would be a useful resource to anyone interested in building a voice and authority online.

The goal is to keep this list fresh and relevant so that it can become an evergreen resource for entrepreneurs everywhere.

There are a lot of entries (200+!), but I know I'm missing some communities around these topics.

I hope you guys find value in this list, but I also ask that you let me know if I'm missing some great community. Any communities around these topics are appreciated, but suggestions about the current descriptions are welcome too.

    Given the lack of response to your request I can't help but wonder if the product/service you're describing has any real value for the marketing community.

    Let me suggest an exercise that might be helpful for you: Define the target audience for the product/service very specifically. Then articulate the core benefit that target audience might expect if they use the product/service.

    Hi Mat, I think your list is beyond comprehensive - perhaps it's bordering on overwhelming.

    I also found the format a little difficult to navigate because it was hard to figure out how I could rank the various offerings against one another to determine the best starting point for looking up what I want to know.

    I feel that some kind of categorisation, perhaps more in terms of user benefit, rather than A-Z by resource name, might be helpful.

    I was unsure what you meant by "promo" within the resource metadata context. Is that about how the community is promoted?

    Good luck with the project. I'm sure there will be some who will find it useful, but if you can just find a way to improve the accessibility and permeability of the information you've assembled, it will save people time versus starting their own resource search from scratch, which is probably what most of your target audience is likely to be doing now.

    Hello Mat:

    Thanks for assembling the list and sharing, looks like you've put some time and effort into it!.

    Quick suggestion: Sorting/categorizing by usage/target (versus format) would be a nice feature to have so that people (i.e., an entrepreneur or SEO manager) can quickly see the resources pertinent to them.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Chris Blackman and BizConsult, I was thinking of enchancing the post with a sorting and filtering functionality. Probably have a table view in addition, offering a quick summary.
