Are you confused by what really works when marketing your business online?
I know the feeling. There are literally thousands of sites out there that either promise to teach you how to effectively market online or tell you that they have the magic formula.
However, there are some tried and true methods of internet marketing that actually work and never go out of style.
These seven sites will teach you how to market, and many of the resources they offer are absolutely free.
Internet Marketing Trainer - http://www.internetmarketingtrainer.com - For my money, and in my opinion, Malaysian marketer Richard Quek is one of the best. His ebook "Exposed!" is the internet marketing bible in that it will teach you all of the marketing methods you can use online, and it gives you all of the resources to set up a successful marketing campaign, most of them free. This ebook is so good that I keep a copy of it on my desk for reference.
His Internet Marketing Trainer site is no different. You'll find some valuable freebies here to help you market online, and the newsletter is excellent.
Teach Me Marketing - http://www.teachmemarketing.com - Owned by marketing extraordinaire, Jimmy D. Brown, you'll get over $197 worth of materials to teach you how to market. Jimmy has, and is, one of my favorite marketing gurus because not only will he show you what to do, he will teach you how to do it. Most of the marketing materials I own, I bought from him because they are excellent.
I've been deeply influenced by his style of writing, and I've found that readers really appreciate it when you explain how to do things in plain language without talking down to them. Excellent.
Boaze Publishing - http://www.boazepublishing.biz - Run by master list builder Steven Boaze (his list is currently over 200,000 strong), you'll get a newsletter three times a week with some of the best commentary and articles on marketing online.

His methods are tried and tested, and he gives you his best information and recommendations, all for free.
