Top 10 must-read Business Development Blogs

Estimated reading time: 1 min

If you are in business development, it’s important to stay connected to the buzz in the marketplace.  One of the hard things is to find a single place to gather all your news sources.  Biz dev can be written about in marketing magazines,  books, industry magazines, online in blogs and forums.  It’s a disparate subject and isn’t easy to collate for easy consumption.

I find two main sources helpful – Twitter and RSS feeds.  If you aren’t using a feed reader, it is really useful because it gathers all your RSS sources into one place.  Consider trying out Google Reader or Feedly.

Today I publish the ones I read most often

  1. Fuel Lines
  2. B2B Lead Generation
  3. Social Media B2B
  4. Creative Brief
  5. RSW
  6. Alchemis New Business
  7. Blowin’ in the Tradewind
  8. Digital Body Language
  9. BL Ochman’s Blog
  10. Web Liquid

I should add that the last couple are more about internet marketing but they often give me great ideas for campaigns and articles to write for CreativeAgencySecrets.

Any more biz dev blogs I should be reading?  Send over your suggestions.

    Rebecca,
    thanks for the call-out to Digital Body Language, much appreciated, and I’m glad that you enjoyed the posts. I haven’t been called a “business development” blog much, so I’m especially glad you found it worthwhile.

    Hi Rebecca,

    I stumbled upon your page while trying to uncover more nuggets of wisdom from the web.

    Thanks for the list. That’s a great library you have given us.

    I would like to share an article I came across recently. It was written by Seth Godin and I personally feel that he laid down some very down-to-earth tips on business development.

    Here’s the link – http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2009/09/understanding-business-development.html

    Enjoy.

    Jonathan
