The Best Marketing Newsletters to Subscribe to Right Now

Posted on in Blog

Busy marketers don’t have time to scour the internet for the latest news and industry insights. Let the best marketing content come to you by subscribing to the best digital marketing newsletters according to the Oneupweb crew.

Why Subscribe to a Newsletter?

Newsletters for marketers package up important topics from a fast-moving industry and deliver them on a relatively set schedule. Those emails are a reliable, concise source of the need-to-know information that helps marketers stay ahead of the curve and make strategic or tactical adjustments based on the changing whims standards of Google, Apple and the broader industry.

Full disclosure: We do a heckuva job with our own weekly newsletter, The Digital Digest. Make sure you subscribe!

Our Selection Criteria

We chose our favorite newsletters based on a few basic criteria. We’ll note that none of these newsletters asked or paid to be on this list – our picks are purposely based on what our teams read each and every day.

To narrow down the list, we asked 3 questions of each nominee:

  • Is this newsletter sent consistently?
  • Is this newsletter sent from (or includes links to) a reputable source/brand?
  • Why is this an interesting newsletter?

With all 3 questions answered, we chose our favorites and divided up the winners based on their marketing service subcategories:

  • Best business newsletters
  • Best SEO newsletters
  • Best PPC newsletters
  • Best social media newsletters
  • Best graphic design newsletters

Did we miss one of your favorites? Get in touch and we might add it to the list!
