Luckily for us, there are several awesome bloggers out there who do know how it works and are willing to share what they know. 

They have different styles and different subjects, but they also have one thing in common: the ability to break down this online marketing thing into bit-sized, understandable and actionable pieces.

Copyblogger Online Marketing Blog to Lean From Copyblogger Founder Brian Clark

Brian Clark

Founded in 2006 by Brian Clark, Copyblogger is a powerhouse for all things content marketing – blogs, email lists, social media, copy writing, and more.  The blog is updated several times a week and touches on everything from improving your blog post titles and building your email list to how to build relationships on social media.

Copyblogger is funny and smart without being too smart.  They’ve built an amazing site practicing what they preach, and their blog posts are chock-full of information and inspiration on using content (like blogs) and communication channels (like email lists and social media) to attract awesome clients.

Laura Roeder Online Marketing Blog to Lean From LKR Founder Laura Roeder

Laura Roeder

Laura founded LKR in 2009, when she fired all of her website design clients and made the switch to social media consulting.  In her own words: “I make technology, specifically social media marketing, dead-simple to understand and implement.”

Laura is, in my humble opinion, the best social media trainer on the internet today. Her clear, no-tech speak style makes setting up your Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest account seem the easiest thing in the world.  And her blog posts are the same way – simple, fun, clear, with one easy action to implement to build your social media presence or your business.

Marcus Sheridan Online Marketing Blog to Lean From The Sales Lion Founder Marcus Sheridan

Marcus Sheridan

Marcus started his pool company, River Pools and Spa, in 2001 and grew it to be one of the largest pool websites in the world.  How? He used his blog to answer his customer’s questions, even the ones that most companies don’t answer publicly. Now, Marcus can be found at, where he writes about using a blog to grow your business.

I like his style because it’s easy to imagine that Marcus is having a one-to-one conversation with you that happens to include clean and direct blog marketing advice. Plus, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet – he’s invited his email readers to take him up on a quick piece of personalized advice on their blogs at least twice in the last 6 months.

TaDah Online Marketing Blog to Lean TaDah Social Media Founder Sarah Burns

Sarah Burns

Sarah Burns is small business owner, blogger and social media enthusiast who launched TaDah! because she saw small businesses implementing social media training, only to let it slide after a few months.  TaDah! is an accountability team who reminds you  each week to work on your  social media and gives tips and tricks to make social media easier to do.

I like Sarah because her emails and blog posts are short, easy to read, and fun.  She’s got a great blend of humor, down-to-earthness, and useful advice that’s easy to digest and implement.  Best of all, her email updates always feature a different tech tip or software to make running a small business even easier.
