Even the very best of online marketers can be challenged in times like those we have actually all experienced over the previous 12 months. However it is those who rise above those difficulties that fuel the motivation all of us need to be successful in our industry.

On this blog site, we have actually made a point to highlight inspiring marketing voices with lists of top marketers by discipline (B2B marketing, social networks marketing, content marketing) and our famous lists of Females Who Rock in Marketing since 2010.

Throughout Black History month, numerous brand names have made efforts to shine a light on contributions made on the planet by individuals within the black neighborhood. However why should honoring such contributions be restricted to one month? For our small part, how we represent marketers of color in the content on our blog, on social networks and in marketing content in addition to the influencers we work with has actually altered substantially over the previous few years. It’s inadequate, but we’re continuing to find out and grow our awareness, understanding and action when it pertains to the significance of diversity and inclusion.

I motivate you to get more information about their backgrounds, achievements and to focus on the contributions they are making to the world of marketing and interactions in both B2C and B2B.
