2. Sales Hacker
Sales Hacker has been around for a long time – and there’s a good reason for that: they provide tons of great articles, podcasts, video guides, and templates for sales professionals looking to stay on top of their game. As an added bonus, they have a super helpful community too.
LeadFuze is another must-read blog experience for sales pros looking to take their game to the next level.
While LeadFuze sells a product, the blog is not all about pitching you to make a purchase. Instead, you’ll find a wide range of informative articles about the art and science of selling – many written by experts in the field.
Coming in at number four on our list is SalesLoft. This site offers up lots of great content in the form of articles, infographics, GIFs, and more. It’s not all just about tips to be a better sales professional or sales manager, though – they also offer up a lot of motivational content to keep you going on those rough days…
Woodpecker wants to help B2B sales teams connect with their perfect customer, and they work toward helping you achiever this goal with lots of content. They’re focused primarily on email topics, but since that’s an area where we can all use some insight, you’re sure to find a bunch of useful articles here.
Unless you’re totally new to the sales and marketing game, or a time traveler sent to the future from like 1920, you’re probably already well aware of HubSpot.
The Hubspot blog is a cornucopia of sales and marketing information. I’m not even sure you could actually read it all in a lifetime at this point – but that’s good, because you’ll never want for content.
If you’re looking for articles on increasing performance, finding the right sales talent, or getting better results (that blog name wasn’t picked at random, you know…) then Double Digit Sales is a place you’ll want to peruse.
The posts here are concise and informative – and really, you can’t ask for much more than that.
You may know G2 from their software, but like many companies they’ve also jumped into the blogosphere. However, unlike many companies, G2 is creating really great content.
If you’re into sales and marketing insights, you’re all but guaranteed to find something worthy your time here. Sales, marketing, productivity…it’s all covered by the G2 team.
BrainShark is another company with a software as a service product offering who also creates blog content aimed at companies looking to learn about sales enablement, coaching, on boarding, and more.
Their “Ideas Blog” is just that – a page filled with articles that will give you new ways to look at how your sales team, and your business as a whole, are operating.
With a name like Predictable Revenue, you know we’re interested.
This is a blog that lives up to the expectations created by its name. It’s a sales blog, but it also offers up plenty of insight about outbound marketing, coaching, and other topics that may not be the standard sales blog topics, but definitely are of interest to people working in the field.
If you think LinkedIn is just for posting your resume, then you’re missing out.
Some of the best articles we’ve read over the past few years have been featured on LinkedIn, and the site’s Sales Blog remains one of our go to reads when we’re looking for new ideas or how to improve performance.
The Sales Blog covers a wide range of topics – meaning there’s almost assuredly something here for everyone.
If you’re interested in getting your sales and marketing efforts to work synergistically, then you should probably be checking out the Sales Benchmarking Index blog, which is chock full of interesting content focused on how you can grow revenue by ensuring everyone’s working towards a common goal.
13. SalesForce Blog
The SalesForce blog is an absolutely massive content resource for sales and marketing professionals that covers a huge range of topics that go well beyond the stuff you’ll find on most blogs in this vertical.
If you wanted to read just one blog for a well-rounded experience, the SalesForce blog would definitely be in the running.
John Barrow’s Fill the Funnel Blog
With blog posts, a podcast, and a wealth of information, John Barrow’s Fill the Funnel blog is a must-read for sales and marketing pros looking to take their skills to the next level.
Insightful, straightforward, and filled with actionable information, this one is worth your time.
14. Sales Wars Blog
If you love Star Wars and sales, then Sales Wars is a no brainer. I mean, just listen to their opening blub…
“A long time ago at a B2B company far, far away there was a sales team with an unorganized sales and marketing process and a broken strategy. They quickly turned to Sales Wars for sales development perspectives, tips, and stories to accelerate their sales and marketing forecast.”
Great gimmick, and great content.
SalesFolk’s blog is a bit more narrowly focused than some of the others on this list, but it deals with a topic near and dear to all our hearts: cold emailing.
The cold email has essentially replaced the cold call – and if your sales people aren’t doing it effectively, it’s costing you business. The articles at SalesFolk will get you up to speed with the current cold email best practices in no time.
17. Closer IQ
This under appreciated entry on our list focuses on sales tips, hiring and talent scouting topics, and sales management.
Closer IQ features a group of staff writers, but will also bring in sales professionals from outside companies. This results in posts with a wide range of perspectives and observations that will help you take your team to the next level.
While this blog may not publish on the daily (or even weekly) schedule of so many of the other resources on this list, when Adaptive Business Services does put out a new piece of content, the wait is often worth it.
If you’re in an industry focused on social selling, this is a blog well worth your time.
Whether you’re a sales manager looking for ways to help your team improve, or a sales rep trying to get a leg up on the competition, you’re guaranteed to find useful insights on the Close.io blog.

21. Xant AI Blog
If you’re looking for a one-stop shop for all of your sales and marketing needs, you should definitely consider Xant’s blog.
Formerly known as InsideSales.com, the Xant blog is chock full of articles, essays, tips, tricks, videos, and just about anything else you could think of to help take your sales and marketing initiatives to the next level.
While the title might be a bit long, the OpenView Ventures Partner Blog delivers where it matters most – with actionable sales and marketing content that can help your team move the needle and increase revenue.
With articles, podcasts, interviews, and more there are guaranteed to be articles on this blog that make you a more informed sales pro.
Jill Konrath is a well known sales thought leader and odds are you’ve probably read her work at some point during your career.
Her blog is a treasure trove of practical advice for everyone – from beginning sales pros looking to get better at their craft to experienced upper management types looking for fresh ways to tackle age-old problems.
Quite simply, a must read.
24. The Sales Blog
Anthony Iannarino’s The Sales Blog is another one of our favorite reads.
Iannarino is an author and thought leader with a deep background in sales. The fact that he’s a published author on the topic not only makes him knowledgeable, but means he has an easy to read style that’s always entertaining and breaks down complicated concepts without burying you in a bunch of jargon.
If you’re not reading The Sales Blog, you should remedy that ASAP. This one’s well worth your time.
Here’s how the Center for Sales Strategy pitches their content:
“We’ve found that some issues are unique to the business climate of today and need new approaches, and other are timeless challenges requiring long-tested best practices. Our team members share their insights, giving you an inside look at what successful companies are doing to generate more quality leads, develop better salespeople, close more deals, and increase their revenue.”
If any of that sounds like the kind of thing you’d like to learn more about, then this blog is a great starting point. It’s well written, covers a wide range of topics, and updates regularly.
If the catchy title doesn’t win you over (I mean, who doesn’t want to be a sales pro insider?), then the content almost assuredly will.
This blog is packed with informative posts presented in a straightforward, easy to read style that is both entertaining and educational.
If you thought all sales blogs had to be dry, guess again. This one bucks that trend in the best ways possible.
The Insight Squared blog takes a problem solver’s approach to pretty much everything you could ever want to know about Software as a Service products. The content is timely, insightful, and offers up plenty of professional advice for everyone from sales professionals to upper management types.
It’s a bit more niche than some of the blogs on this list, but it’s always a great read.
28. Sales Engine
Sales Engine offers up a plethora of posts aimed at B2B sales pros and marketing teams. With the bulk of the content created by Vanna Logothetis and Chicago Booth Business School professor Craig Wortmann, the site’s pedigree speaks for itself,

29. A Sales Guy
Featuring both a sales and recruiting blog, A Sales Guy isn’t just your standard one topic content center.
Here’s how they describe themselves:
“Sales expertise for those who sense the game is changing. Providing you with the content to make you a better salesperson or sales leader. It is the place on the web for the best sales and sales leadership resources — keg stands optional.”
We’re probably too old for keg stands (ah, the days of our misspent youth…) but the rest of this is pretty great.
The official blog of author Steve W. Martin (no, not the comedian…the guy who wrote Heavy Hitter – a guide for senior salespeople working in enterprise sales).
This one’s focused heavily on enterprise sales, but even if that’s not your specific sales niche, Martin’s articles are fun to read, incredibly informative, and guaranteed to help you become a better sale professional.
Filled with detailed articles and infographics about (you guessed it…) inside sales, Inside Sales Experts offers up lots of compelling content for sales pros working in this particular ecosystem.

Click an article and get reading.
“In your face, contemporary, ballsy, straight talking, motivational content.”
With a pitch like that, we were in the second we discovered the Your Sales Playbook blog.
Paul Castain’s a one of a kind guy, and his blog is no different. Paul’s posts are full of great insights, funny observations, and guaranteed to entertain you while they teach you things.
This blog offers up daily B2B sales and marketing insights, direct from author and award-winning blogger Matt Heinz.
Matt’s another blogger with a gift for taking dry and potentially boring sales topics and infusing them with humor and insight that will keep you laughing while you learn.
This is a blog we return to regularly – and not just because it’s updated daily. The content is that good.
Robert Terson’s Selling Fearlessly blog has a great name – and plenty of content that lives up to the promise of its title.
The beauty of Selling Fearlessly is that even though it’s not regularly updated anymore (Terson has embraced retirement), there’s a lot of great insight in the articles on the blog. The best part is Terson’s conversational style – and penchant for being concise.
36. The Sales Hunter
Mark Hunter’s blog has more going for it than just a clever name.
Filled with thought leadership, motivational pieces, and a plethora of great articles, The Sales Hunter will help you and your team get better at prospecting and working with the leads that are already in your pipeline.
Another blog chock full of great information for sales pros at all levels, the Rapid Learning Institute Blog offers up blog posts, ebooks, white papers, video training on a wide range of topics.
Here’s how David Meerman Scott pitches his blog:
“I write about strategies to turn fans into customers and customers into fans. I also share ways to use real-time strategies to spread ideas, influence minds, and build business.”
Scott offers up articles on a wide range of topics, including sales, marketing, branding, public speaking, and more.
It’s a bit of an eclectic collection, but there’s a lot of good content to discover here.
Here’s the breakdown on the Tibor Shanto blog:
“Turning prospects into customers. For sales professionals -latest updates on sales execution, tools, tips and more.”
Tibor’s been in B2B sales for over 25 years, so it’s clear he knows a thing or two on this topic – and he’s happy to share that knowledge with his readers.
40. B2B Lead Blog
Here’s author Brian Carroll’s pitch:
“I’ve been helping B2B companies understand and execute modern lead generation with consulting, speaking, and training workshops for 20-years. Along the way, I’ve learned a lot about generating leads, building effective funnels, and growing sales. And I’m going to share it with you on this blog.”
Having been a reader of the blog for some time, we can tell you he fulfills the promise of that pitch. You’ll find plenty of great B2B-oriented content here.
41. Gavin Ingham
Gavin Ingham is Europe’s top motivational speaker, helping people develop mental toughness. And while that’s not a traditional sales blog topic, I think we’d all agree that mental toughness is something that’s vital to a long and successful career in sales.
Ingham’s a great motivator, specializing in business clients. His blog is full of articles on how you can better deal with adversity in your career.
42. Engage Selling
Colleen Francis’ Engage Selling is “For business and sales leaders to design, implement and hone their sales teams to seize market opportunities.” It also offers a “frank, no-nonsense approach to solving problems and addressing opportunities.”

The Sales Lead Management Association describes their mission in these terms:
“The Sales Lead Management Association endeavors to be the voice of the expanding marketing technology field that manages prospect responses to lead generation programs by B2B and B2C companies. The belief is that if you cannot manage sales leads you cannot manage sales.”
Run by Steven Rosen, the Sales Management Blog focuses on sales management, sales leadership, coaching, and personal development.
With topics covering both sales and marketing, there’s a lot of great info for professionals in both disciplines.
Topline Leadership has “trained over 20,000 sales managers and tens of thousands of salespeople for many of the most successful sales organizations in the world.”
Their blog helps sales professionals enhance their leadership skills, become better sellers, and achieve greatness in their professional lives.
Run by Bob Phibbs, the Retail Doctor blog is focused on retail sales – which makes it a bit different from most of the other blogs on this list.
But even if you’re not selling in retail, the site’s broader based articles feature plenty of crossover wisdom for sales professionals working in a wide range of specialized disciplines.
Plus, sometimes seeing how other types of sales people approach their job can inspire you to see yours in a new light.
48. Bill Caskey

55. Ian Altman
Ian Altman’s blog is not just a blog, but a portfolio of his published work. As such, you’ll find articles on sales that he’s published on his own page, or at places like Forbes, Inc., and so on.
