I often write various marketing books’ overviews, but what about marketing magazines? Of course, speaking about books, we speak about hundreds and thousands of books appearing annually around the world.
I do really love books, especially those that help me in my marketing and sales activities. However, writing a really good book takes time, takes years. And the day it hits the stores, it can already be outdated.
From that point of view from time to time I prefer to read various marketing magazines, both printed and online, to stay up to date with fresh marketing news and ideas. Today I would like to share with you the list of magazines I personally read, and some magazines I happen to read from time to time when I see a really interesting material.

A resource for marketing and senior sales professionals, the core audience consists mostly of decision-makers and key influencers within their organizations.
