Digital Marketing Weekly Roundup – February 27, 2017

It’s finally here!

Digital Marketing Tools – The Ultimate Reference

If you like the conference calendar, you’ll love this.

The goal here is to find the ideal blend of completeness and usability. Currently, this means 1 big page with 1,300 digital marketing tools and counting. Soon to be 2,000, then 3,000.

What keeps this from being ridiculous? Accordions and quicklinks. Accordions cut down on the scrolling — you only see what you want to see. Quicklinks cut the scrolling even more — click a topic and jump straight to it.

But what really matters with a resource like this is the amount of effort that goes into maintaining it. Every week, I’m refining this page. It isn’t perfect, but it’s getting there.

Check it out. Save it. Come back a few times and see what’s new.

Here’s the easy-to-type URL:

The early-bird discount update has been postponed a week, because so many discounts expire on February 28, only one day after this post goes live.

If you’re reading this by February 28, check in on any conference you were considering, and make sure there is not a big expiring discount.

If you’re reading this after Febrary 28, come back next week for the updated discount list.
