#3 Product Hunt Blog

No Title

No Description

Product Hunt is a platform where people shout about the latest products they’ve developed and get feedback from an engaged tech-savvy community. It’s an interesting place to keep an eye on trends in tech, web development, marketing and business services. The blog tends to focus on one area of tech tools and how it’s developing, or contrast different products in a niche e.g. web chat.

The aspect which makes it different to other websites I follow is how early stage many of these products are. It’s often the first place that developers and marketers go to talk abut their side projects and new ventures. Some of these products will later make it onto larger tech publishing platforms, but many won’t. The diversity of the product range, from connected (IoT) devices to iOS apps and data tools also makes it likely that a business owner can find some practical ideas to try out.

I always make time for the Social Media Examiner blog because it provides current tips and trends in social media marketing. The posts are always relevant and cover the key platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. I feel the posts are truly designed to help business owners drive sales, increase traffic and get the most out of their platforms. I have implemented many of the recommendations to improve our connection with customers. The blog also provides excellent research and stats, so I believe the marketing recommendations are credible. I like the level of comments that are generated on each post. The readers seem to be very savvy and helpful. I am learning from the blog but also connecting with other business owners that have similar marketing needs. It is a win-win!

#11 Millennial Money

No Title

No Description

Source

Millennial money is a blog I recently stumbled upon while setting up social media posts for my job. The founder did a 30 minute interview where he talked about his journey from a penniless 24-old to a millionaire 30-year old. He took his success and started a blog that specifically is geared towards millennials and their side hustles. I found it to be incredibly motivated – I’m hooked. I read the blogs and listen to the podcast daily. This particular blog stands apart from the rest because of its dedication to the yet-to-be-established individual. Most are dedicated to those who already have established businesses or are established in their careers, whereas this one feels like it’s designed just for me – a 24-year-old just beginning her career.
