Books Your Marketing Coach has found helpful...maybe you will too!

I am often asked about the tools that I use to market my business as well as my clients so I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can browse and find resources that you will find helpful as you market your small business.

I would recommend bookmarking this page as a convenient reference to access this page easily as I reference this page quite often.

Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links which means that I may earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase…but please note that there is NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU.

I ONLY recommend these resources because I personally have experience in using them and have found them helpful and useful….maybe you will too. I DO NOT recommend that you purchase these products unless you feel that they would be helpful to you in helping you market your business.
