All this week on The DOZ Blog we are celebrating Australia Day by taking a closer look at the business and marketing world Down Under.
On Tuesday we highlighted some of the most exciting startups in the country, yesterday we considered how to reach out and win Australian customers online, and today we’re taking a look at some of the best marketers in Oz.
And believe us: there are plenty to choose from.
Whether marketing agencies that pump out quality content on their feeds daily, influential voices that comment, critique, and engage with their followers with passion and good humor, or marketing and advertising blogs that promote their own great content alongside that of the wider blogosphere, there are dozens of accounts that should be part of any Twitter user’s marketing feed.
While we could have taken the easy route and cut these accounts down to an arbitrary Top 10, instead we pulled all of the best accounts into a single, ultimate list of the 22 Australian marketers, blogs, publications, and influencers on Twitter.
Check out the list, read a sample tweet, see who you already follow, and add the accounts that you have yet to encounter to your feed. Take it from us: you won’t be disappointed.
