I love reading from great marketers and collecting awesome marketing quotes.

So, a couple of weeks ago, I started sharing “marketing nuggets” on my Linkedin and Twitter. I have collected the first 9 quotes in this simple slideshare which I hope will give you plenty of inspiration.

I got a bit heavy on the madmen and women of the sixties like David Ogilvy, Bill Bernbarch, Mary Wells-Lawrence, Phyllis Robinson and Jerry Della Femina. Yet, I included industry pioneers Henry Ford and Akio Morita, as well as management guru Peter Drucker. And to tap into contemporary marketers: Olivier Francois from Chrysler, because getting Eminem and Clint Eastwood in your ads puts you in that league for me.

In just 9 quotes, we cover a lot of marketing ground: research, creativity, learning, testing…

I’m also trying to capture each marketer’s approach. What they are known for. Like Della Femina’s self-described “street- corner wise guy” style.

So, without further ado, for a nice dose of marketing awesomeness by some of the best marketing, voilà!

And what’s your favorite quote?
