If you've know me more than 5 minutes you know that I talk a lot about the greats in marketing.
People such as Jay Abraham, Dan Kennedy, Gary Halbert, Joe Vitale and many others.
Why do I do that?
Remember Sir Issac Newton said "If I have seen further than you, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants."
That's exactly why any marketer or content provider should continually educate themselves. Just so they can build on the tested psychological and business principals discovered by the greats.
Marketers of today have lots of people they can learn from. A new site called Guru Knowledge has a list of the top 10 most influential Internet marketing gurus. I stress this is the authors personal opinion and my own top 10 list would contain some of them and not others.
Update: I misread Dale's original post and thought me meant greatest all round marketers . He actually mean on the Internet. So my apologies to Dale. I've changed the wording in the previous paragraph to reflect that.
Even so I would still like to have the top 10 Marketing gurus of all time listed.
I would include Gary Halbert, Claude Hopkins and David Ogilvy in my own top 10.
There are other UK based marketing gurus but I'm not sure they're as well known worldwide.
What about you? Do you have a favourite all-round marketing guru?
