Have you ever tried to find a website that covers all the various topics of Digital Marketing such as Blogging, SEO, SMM, PPC etcetera under the same roof?
I know very well that you couldn't able to find more than just a few sites.
Hey, same pinch!
When I had started learning digital marketing I got so overwhelmed because to learn different topics about digital marketing I always had to find a new website as not every website covers each and every topic of internet marketing.
I can understand this struggle very well as I went through the same that you are going through right now.
Hence just that you won't have to struggle again (like I did) I am listing all the most popular and authoritative websites within this very article that cover multiple topics of online marketing under the same site.
Before you move forward I just wanted to let you know that websites listed within this article are not in any particular manner like top to bottom or bottom to top, and all of them are listed here in a random manner.
However, some of the listed websites are the huge brands within the digital marketing space such as HubSpot, Moz, and Neil Patel etcetera.
But it doesn't mean that other websites are not good enough to follow, rather I would say each and every website mentioned in this article is best at its own place and worth your time.
Also, every website has a different style of content as they have different target audiences thus their approach to creating content might be different than each other but I will repeat again that all of them are great places to learn digital marketing.
So without spending further time lets just dive in!
HubSpot is one of the biggest names in the digital marketing space and they are popular for their awesome CRM platform which has a great free tier that is dedicated to small businesses to manage their most important marketing and sales database from that all in one CRM platform.
Why Should You Follow and Read HubSpot Blog?
Although HubSpot is a Saas (Software as a Service) company still they produce a hell lot of content around multiple digital marketing topics and all of their articles are very helpful and in-depth which can be helpful for you if you are just planning to start learning digital marketing or even if you are running a business.
Topics That HubSpot Blog Covers
HubSpot is one of my favorite websites to learn digital marketing because they produce high-quality content around all the topics of digital marketing which I have listed below.
However, HubSpot also covers many more topics than alone digital marketing that are sometimes directly or indirectly related to internet marketing and sometimes not.
If you have just entered into this internet marketing industry then Neil Patel should be your very first stop as he is a pro digital marketer and a very successful serial online entrepreneur.
Neil Patel is in this space for a very long period of time and he built a number of successful brands like CrazyEgg, QuickSprout, KissMetrics, Ubersuggest, Neil Patel Digital and of course, he himself is a brand without any doubt because he as a Personal Brand is more popular than all of his brands altogether.
Why Should You Follow and Read Neil Patel?
I don't think now I even need to explain to you why you should follow Neil Patel's blog, still, let me tell you why you should follow him and read his stuff.
Neil Patel is popular for his super in-depth and actionable articles around digital marketing and when I started 3 years back I just fell in love with his content like the way he explains things is just outstanding.
Therefore even if you are a beginner or an advanced marketer you should definitely subscribe to the blog of this super-successful serial entrepreneur and online marketing expert.
Topics That Neil Patel Covers
Neil Patel is my personal favorite online marketer and entrepreneur because I love the way he writes his blog posts, they feel so personal just like the content is specially written for me and he is like talking to me face to face.
I read most of his content if not all of them as there are thousands of blog posts on his website alone and after all I am a normal human being, not a web crawler 😀
He covers all the important topics of digital marketing which I have mentioned below, also he covers other topics like Conversion Rate Optimization and Entrepreneurship that are directly related to internet marketing and very helpful for all the online marketers.
QuickSprout is a website started by Neil Patel back in 2008 which I have already mentioned earlier.
Currently, it's a very popular website that is dedicated to helping businesses with their super in-depth guides on multiple topics of digital marketing.
Although Neil doesn't write articles on this website anymore still there is a very talented and successful group of entrepreneurs like Lars Lofgren, Corry Cummings, and Hiten Shah that produce content for QuickSprout.
Why Should You Follow and Read QuickSprout?
If you are in the digital marketing space quite for some time then you know that nowadays most of the websites and blogs in the digital marketing space are dedicated to a niche-specific single topic which is a good thing though.
However, people like me still prefer to follow a website that covers an entire broad topic such as digital marketing on the same website and separate them with relevant categories, and QuickSprout is one of that kind of websites and still produce a ton of super valuable content.
So if you are like me and prefer to follow a website that provides a huge amount of content around multiple topics within digital marketing then you must follow QuickSprout and I promise that you would love their content.
Topics That QuickSprout Covers
In QuickSprout you can find super helpful long size guides around multiple crucial topics of digital marketing that I have mentioned below, apart from that they also cover topics like business development and conversion optimization which is again great for people like you and me.
DigitalMarketer is a website dedicated to helping entrepreneurs and marketers by teaching them the right way of internet marketing so that they can learn online marketing and start growing their businesses with the help of the great internet.
Why Should You Follow and Read DigitalMarketer?
You should read the stuff that DigitalMarketer produces because they create quality content with the latest digital marketing trends and you will always find their content relevant and up to date.
One other reason to follow them is that if you prefer to read medium-sized content over super long text-based content then Digital Market is the perfect place for you as most of the time they produce medium-sized blog posts that are easy to read and digest.
Topics That DigitalMarketer Covers
DigitalMarketer covers almost most of the very important categories of digital marketing on their website so that you can take the benefits of learning multiple topics in the same place.
Just to let you know what topics they cover on their blog I am sharing the list with you here;
