Which marketers running the show do you find useful?
I love Twitter as a way of learning about new developments and approaches in a social way. But if you're looking to learn from others on Twitter, as well as socialise, you need to know who to follow.
To help find good people to learn from, a couple of years ago, I wrote this guide to what I thought were the best marketers to follow on twitter.
What about client marketers?
My post was popular at the time, and I've learned loads from these guys around the world, but its weakness is that almost everyone on there is a consultant or works for an agency. Nothing wrong with that! But where are the client-side marketers?!
I have identified a handful of marketers I follow who are different - they are client-side marketers actually walking the talk and running the show.
I find following their tweets really useful to see what's on their mind - what's new and what they're implementing. I hope you find these useful too.
So here's my list - it's a short one for obvious reasons. So let me know who you find useful - who I should be following. The only criteria is that they work for a client company and tweet useful stuff for other marketers to learn from!
