Branding and marketing sites I like (plus bonus links)

There is a link-building exercise currently circulating around the blogosphere, in which bloggers list other valuable blogs that might not otherwise get the exposure they deserve (and others “pay it forward” by including and expanding the list on their blog).

Glad to participate. Here are some of my favorites (some of which I discovered through this “z-list” approach):

The Origin of Brands

Seth’s Blog

Brand Autopsy

Brand Noise

Coudal Partners

All About Branding

Whisper Brand

Dave Young’s Branding Blog

Diva Marketing

Guy Kawasaki

Daily Brad

Brand Sizzle

Shotgun Marketing

Two Hat Marketing

Digital Grit

Duct Tape Marketing

Creating Passionate Users

Brand Mantra

The Branding Blog


Branding Strategy Insider

The Ad Feed

Rather than just copy down the entire z-list as it is currently circulating, I decided to “cull” and focus more narrowly on branding sites..

Now, just for the fun of it, some other sites I refer to regularly for insight, news, fun, ideas, etc.:

Book of Joe




Found on the Web


Look at This

Name Development

Advertising for Peanuts

Things magazine

Debbie Weil

Marketing Sherpa

Tricks and Trinkets Newsletter

Media 2.0

Finally, on this blog (Brand Impactiviti), my favorite posts from 2006:

What do you mean? (a hopefully useful attempt at defining “branding”)

Another DOA slogan (Seattle)

A good necessary evil (Amica Insurance)


How to waste 100,000 billboards (UPS)

Here’s to a prosperous 2007!

    Incidentally — I read & feed many of the same sites and blogs…now I’m going to have to check out the names I *don’t* recognize on your list. I’ll probably enjoy and learn a lot from those, too.

    Thanks again for the mention, and Happy New Year!
