7 B2B Sales & Marketing Blogs We Love

Kelly Ford Buckley . February 20, 2015

I don't know about you, but Q1 is when I clean up my email subscriptions and feeds - when I minimize the noise in my life. It doesn't matter whether you are attempting to create a personal or professional connection with me, whether you are a retailer, blogger, service provider, tech vendor or media outlet, or whether I actually opted in previously -- all are candidates for the "opt-out." 

On the personal front, as it turns out, anything home design, remodeling and renovation wins this year. Professionally, here are seven B2B sales and marketing related blogs that have kept me coming back year after year.
