The holidays are a wonderful time for reflecting on the past, planning for the future, and showing appreciation for those who challenge us to be better. Typically, we employ these practices in our personal lives. But, because good content marketing makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, we decided to implement them in a professional setting, too.

Last week, we took a look at the Ghosts of Marketing Past, Present, and Future. So today, on Christmas Eve, we’re showing some love for the content marketers who push the boundaries of our industry, merge smart strategy with creative content to deliver results for their organizations, and push us to be better marketers every day of the year.

Join us as we raise our glasses in a holiday toast to the 25 brilliant people below, who have been and will be key players in the evolution of marketing in 2014 and beyond. Want send a little holiday cheer their way, too? Go ahead and follow them on Twitter, and send them a quick note thanking them for being movers-and-shakers in the world of marketing. (We’ve linked their names to their Twitter accounts, so it will won’t take much.)
