As marketers, we spend a lot of time reading. We read marketing blogs, books, case studies, whitepapers...we read a lot of stuff. We read most of this content hoping that we will find some information that can directly impact our marketing strategy, perhaps a new idea to look further into or an important piece of news that impacts the industry.
But what about things that can indirectly impact our careers? Like inspiration and motivation? What about the stuff that keeps us going when we're knee deep in data wondering if we even know what marketing is anymore?
The slides and quotes below may not have any statistics or case studies, but they may make you a better marketer by inspiring you and changing the way you approach your job. Traditional and new media marketing are both represented, with sources ranging from "The Father of Advertising," David Ogilvy, to inbound marketers like Brian Halligan and Dan Zarrella. There are even quotes from people who weren't explicitly marketers, although they definitely knew a thing or two about the industry.
If you enjoy the presentation, feel free to share it. We want to make it as easy as possible to share this inspiration. In a blog post, we included quick links to tweet each individual post: http://bit.ly/14qDqWk We also pinned each individual image to a Pinterest board: http://bit.ly/13iRhcv and will be sharing them on Facebook and Twitter. If one image stands out to you, feel free to share that as well.
Clipping is a handy way to collect important slides you want to go back to later.
