To engage in the internet marketing blogosphere is to be collaborative and participatory. So to help ring in the New Year, we want to promote some of the best content from other digital marketing websites. Sure, we’re competitors, but we’re also appreciative of great content, and we want to share with our readers what we believe is some of the best out there. So here are some of the best cumulative links to visit now, at the beginning of 2015:
TopRank Blog’s list of 30 top content marketing quotes from 2014
Author James Anderson did what all good writers must do when they come on board a new agency—he sifted through the blog in order to gauge the style and type of content that he’d have to adapt. In doing so, he managed to compile an impressive list of valuable content marketing quotes. We’re linking to it because it’s insightful and utterly timely. Our favorite quote in his list: “Does your content lead readers on a journey, or does it merely stuff them as leads into a pipeline?”
The Best of the Best: Moz
This is Moz’s December 31st article that brought together the top 10 of the blog’s “Top 10” category. So for the whole year 2014, Moz gathered the top ten articles they could find online every two weeks. This article presents us their top 10 of their top 10s. We like it because it showed us some truly awesome content that we missed the first time around , and it reminded us of other content that we recalled loving.
Copyblogger is a website where you can find great blogging advice. Our writers have used it, and it continues to produce inspiring and relevant articles. This end-of-the-year article was written by Sonia Simone, the site’s co-founder, and speaks to the nature of all digital professionals to get lost in our computers. She urges us to connect with one another now in 2015, especially with those we might not otherwise meet. It’s about branching out and introducing ourselves to others in our fields. We think it’s a great article and it’s one of our the inspirations for writing this one.
2015 is gonna be awesome
So it’s not a round-up, but it is another superb article from the folks over at KISSmetrics. It not only reminds us what excellent content looks like, but it tells us all about why digital marketers are going to love 2015. This article makes the point that mobile marketing is skyrocketing, millennials are flexing their buying power muscles, online shopping is growing in general, internet interaction increasingly allows for better customer engagement, and there are more tools and mobile resources available than ever before. Worth a read? Definitely.
They beat us to it! No round-up of round-ups would be complete without the best round-up of them all, which itself includes a number of sub-round-ups. Are you sufficiently confused yet? It’s alright.

So with this we welcome the New Year, with great anticipation of the changes coming for internet marketing.
