Top Dog Social Media

The blog spot for Melonie Dodoro, a Kelowna-based social media expert dubbed “Canada’s #1 LinkedIn Expert and Social Media Strategist.” Naturally, her blog is a go-to for LinkedIn tips and how-to’s, but she’s also got some insanely on-point insights for social selling and communicating a brand online.

Between Rowse and his network of guest writers, there’s a wealth of blogging how-to’s and discussions to be had. If you’re ever dry of blogging ideas, check out Problogger for inspiration.

Quick Sprout

Get traffic-increasing, brand-building, sales-boosting insights and advice direct from start-up whiz and entrepreneur Neil Patel.

Best of all, Patel is a diligent and active blogger, so if you post a question, you’re likely to get a meaningful response within a couple days.


“The Internet is full of marketing tips, marketing advice, and marketing experts,” reads the ‘About Us’ page on, “but most of what is out there is either pure garbage or really confusing to figure out.” To fight the content bloat, the team at MarketingProfs provides highly researched insights and data that you can’t find anywhere else.
