      No problem, Keira.

    Great free resource

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Thanks Andy. Yup, this sort of hub structure is great for targeting long tail keywords.

    Than you Brian for these templates I appreciate it. I recently started marketing agency and I think this will make my way a little easier.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

    I must say yours is one of the resources I believe to be the most trustworthy and these templates will for sure help me in my planning and beyond 🙏🏻

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Thanks Nick. Let me know if there are any templates that we should add in the future.

  24. Laurelia McClure Avatar Laurelia McCluresays:

    I would like to see temptplates for Journals and Planners

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      This is a marketing templates library. Do you mean marketing plans?

  25. Great SEO tools as usual. I love the Case Study template, it will be very helpful for my Blog writing process using my own observations and experiments. I also loved the Outreach Email template for link building; I have my own but I am going to replace those that are not effective & try out different angles getting those links.

    Would you please add an SEO audit template that you use in your engagements.

    Thank you for great content and recourses; as usual.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Thanks John. Great suggestion there too. An SEO audit template would be perfect for the The Digital Marketing Templates Library.

  26. This is exactly what our company is looking for! Thank you, Brian. I tell all of my marketing employees to go to you as a #1 resource for anything digital marketing related! I love this.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Cordell, happy to hear that. And thanks for referring people to Backlinko.

  27. Awesome – these will definitely be useful. Thank you again Brian for all your help!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Darshana. Glad you found the templates useful.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Sachintha, no problem. Glad you found The Digital Marketing Templates Library useful.

  28. Great content as always! I have a new person on my marketing team and this was the first resource I sent his way. From the videos to the blogs to the templates, I always appreciate Backlink’s voice and style!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Elena, thank you 👍

  29. Love it, Brian. You’re the man. Thank you!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Don.

  30. kevin Avatar kevinsays:

    Hi Brian,

    Wow…love the templates, great idea!

    I would recommend making the templates more clickable with a button or obvious element…(backlinko.com/templates/marketing).

    In the era of “don’t make me think” I had to thinkg and try to determine where the clickable element was.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Thanks Kevin.

  31. Hameed Avatar Hameedsays:

    Thank you so much Brian.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

  32. Lateefah Avatar Lateefahsays:

    Wow! this is awesome! Well done for all the hard work you’ve put into this.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Thanks Lateefah. You’re not kidding! This took 200+ hours to put together.

  33. Thanks so much for all your work… Great Stuff for my weekend… to read it and to act…

    Be careful 🙂

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Petra.

  34. J.Wicks Avatar J.Wickssays:

    Duuuude! You are a giver to the max Brian. I learned about you and Backlinko only 1 month ago and I have been studying SEO exclusively from the endless amount of valuable guides and articles that you write. This library of templates may be the greatest gift you’ve given yet. Thanks taking the time and effort to educate and share the things you’ve learned in the way that you do. I appreciate you man!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Happy to hear that Backlinko has been so helpful. Keep rocking 👍

  35. Hey Brian
    This is above and beyond! I can’t believe you’ve put this together and for free to boot. I’m at that point where I’ve done all my homework (aka practically copy pasted all of Backlinko into my notes), got a first draft design of my site, and am at that content creation stage. These templates will be so helpful as guides but also just excellent, concise summaries. Can’t thank you and of course Kyle enough for all the hardwork!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Sounds good, Claire. For sure: Kyle did an amazing job.

  36. This is an excellent source of digital marketing material and will have deffinately a look.

    Thanks Brian

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Haris.

  37. Rakhshan Avatar Rakhshansays:

    OMG Brian Dean you are THE BEST. This is exactly what I needed

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      No problem.

  38. Thank you so much Brian for sharing with us such useful information. That is what i was searching for!

    I am sure new marketing ideas will be created now thanks to your post.

    Best Regards
    Olesya Zakharova

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Olesya. Let me know if you have any templates that you’d like to see added to the library.

  39. Wow! tons of value.

    Thanks Brian.

    I can imagine how much time you have invested in it.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Eloy. That’s true: this took me and the entire Backlinko team countless hours to put together.

  40. This is great Brian!

    Thank you for sharing. Will send over to my clients as well.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      You’re welcome, Kyle.

  41. Brian!

    You’re one of the very few people that I actually look forward to receiving emails from. You make it feel like we’re buds and you’re just sending me a friendly email that may help my business. I appreciate you and your team very much.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Ashley, thanks for that. I do try to add value with every email. But as you pointed out, copywriting helps too 🙂

  42. Stewart Avatar Stewartsays:

    Thanks for these resources Brian. I haven’t explored them all but right away I can tell these templates will be great organizing tools. Much appreciated!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Stewart, you’re welcome. Let me know if any template ideas come to mind. Looking to add a few in the next few months.

  43. Thanks for sharing these templates! I plan to put them to use right away. Great resources for a one-person-shop such as my own.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      No problem, Erin. Glad to hear that you’ll get a lot of use out of these templates.

  44. Great resources, Brian. Thanks for sharing. I actually made my own SEO templates from your blog posts down through the years so I can honestly say that your SEO resources will work for users.

    “Content marketing without SEO is like bread without butter” –
    I love this because content marketing is where I’m focusing at the moment, trying to connect my pieces of content into a common theme for user experience. To use a bread metaphor, I’ve lots of slices but I need to put them together to form a loaf.

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Hazel, you’re welcome. Great analogy there. Very true.

  45. WOW, thank you so so so much for providing this information and templates for people to use. I’m a super small pet care business, with not a lot for budget for these things but I know how incredibly important all of this stuff is. Also even more appreciate as a business owner yourself to provide for free. I have learned so much from your videos, posts templates etc! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      Hi Kristie, happy to help. I’m an animal lover so it’s nice to see that my material has helped you out.

  46. Paulo Avatar Paulosays:

    You are crazy 🙂

    Thank you so much

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      I think that’s a compliment…?

  47. Great Content! Congratulations! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Brian Dean Avatar Brian Deansays:

      No worries, Adnan.
