Social media is a constantly fluctuating landscape and it can be difficult to keep a finger on the pulse of it all. It’s important to stay on top of these trends so that you can effectively update your own strategy along the way.

In this week’s #SproutChat, we talked about participants favorite and most often turned to resources when it comes to staying up to date. From Twitter accounts to news outlets to finding inspiration—we covered a few ways to help you from becoming dated in marketing.

Keep Tabs on Social Media Focused News Outlets

This week’s participants chimed in with great resources for social media focused sites and blogs that are fast to release news and can have an impact on your marketing efforts. Be sure to bookmark some of these so you can always know what’s around the corner.

News on the Go

Email lists and podcasts are great ways to gain insights while on the go. Whether you’re commuting by car or public transportation these resources can step in and help you grow anywhere, anytime.

Inspiration Is Everywhere

It can be easy to fall into a creative rut as a marketer especially when you’re working in a fast-paced field like social media. Try to take some time for yourself and step away from your work to find inspiration. Scroll through your Twitter feed or go for a walk around the block to disconnect from incoming emails and messages.
