Marketing & Copywriting Resources
In 20+ years of writing direct response promotions, email, SEO
copy, and web content ... developing small business and e-commerce
websites ... coaching aspiring copywriters ... and everything related,
I review, test and buy a lot of information, products and services. If something
saves me time and money -- or better yet, makes me money, I'm happy to
share the good news.
Here's a list of my favorite marketing-related publications (print
& web), products, and
services. Take a look yourself and see if you won't find a real gem or
two for yourself! (In the spirit of transparency, you should know I'm
an affiliate of many of these programs. But I never affiliate with a
service that fails to truly deliver on its promises. Test-drive
the recommendations for yourself and see what works best for you!)
EMAIL DELIVERY & MANAGEMENT
Market to your clients with Email - 60 Day Free Trial
This is another easy-to-use email management program I've used and
would recommend. Also has professional templates for your immediate
use or you can add your own custom html. Reasonably monthly fees.
Great 60-day trial plan, too.
Create, send and track email!
This is one service that makes the whole process of collecting,
managing, sending, and tracking emails very easy. You can use their
templates or your own custom html. No monthly fees, either. Reasonable
per email rates. Abides by all the state compliance restrictions. I
use this service for my own store, AdoptShoppe.com
Looking for a solid auto-responder email program with a lot of
muscle for the money,
Get Response really caught my eye. This is a productivity packed
system that makes the whole process pretty easy. Too many features to
list here. Try it for free like I did. See what you think.
INEXPENSIVE STOCK PHOTO SOURCES
Inexpensive, generally high quality images. Great for marketers on
a tight budget.
PayPal Business Accounts
I use PayPal for my coaching students as well as paying vendors -
it's quickest way I know of to make and receive payments without a lot
of hassle. (No waiting for checks to arrive and then clear.) The
PayPal Business Account also makes it easy to process regular credit
and debit cards.
