There are hundreds if not thousands of tools, services and resources that can help you with your internet marketing needs. Below is a shortlist of tools we recommend for various purposes.
For immediate traffic to your website consider Google Adwords and Yahoo Bing Network. You can bid to appear on search result pages when your keywords are entered in a search query. You only pay when a user clicks on your ad. Thus the name Pay-per-click advertising.
If you sell anything online, you need an email marketing system that helps you sort customers from prospects. Aweber is the only program we know that manages your list automatically.
Other programs like MailChimp and iContact also do a great job at delivering your custom newsletter and messages with ease. We DO NOT recommend Constant Contact, but feel free to try it.
