Let’s face it we all like to get something for nothing. And for small businesses, quite often it’s free advice and guidance that we crave in our quests to learn a lot as fast as possible to enable us to do the biz to the very best of our capabilities. No doubt that’s why people visit SmallBizPod itself.

So if you’re the kind of person who likes ‘free stuff’ sent direct to your inbox, here are a couple of sources of really useful marketing hints and tips that fit the bill for businesses who are trying to get their message out there.

The first is buzzoodle – a well written, informative marketing blog that helps you max the basics. Whether it’s your web site or your blog, or simply extend your network with a view to sales. Sign up and you’ll receive 20 newsletters, and if my first couple are anything to go by, they’re packed full of useful stuff.

The second is cardellmedia. The web site looks a bit dodgy – but sign up for the e-bulletins and again you’ll get some really practical hints and tips.

These guys are heroes of well targeted, well structured, direct response type marketing. Of course the free stuff! is just a sweetener to get you interested in what they’re really selling. . .

But hey. . .useful free stuff is the best kind of free stuff going. Right?
