The Marketing Communications (Marcom) Resources Depot

This is the place where, with the flick of a finger you can connect with those who’ve
“Been there; done that”  and did it well (and still do  it well).Here you’ll find tools, tips, programs,and products for free or low-cost  marketing communications.(Some are not free or low-cost, but still great investments.) 

Some are affiliates who pay me a commission if you buy from them after linking to them from this page. But they don’t charge one penny more than if you bought direct. Others are just my recommendations because I know  they can help you…can help you win at marcom.

The best way to launch a successful marketing communications program is to start with the basics.  Created in 1953, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) continues to help small business owners and entrepreneurs pursue the American dream. The SBA is the only cabinet-level federal agency fully dedicated to small business and provides counseling, capital, and contracting expertise as the nation’s only go-to resource and voice for small businesses.

SCORE, the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors, is dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow and achieve their goals. Since 1964, they have provided education and mentorship to more than 11 million entrepreneurs.

SCORE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). Thanks to this generous support from the SBA and because of the selfless contributions of  more than 10,000 dedicated volunteers, they are able to deliver most of our offerings at no cost.

If you need free publicity for a product, service,
cause or issue, you’re in the right place.

You can’t have a website without a domain name. Like a street address that tells people where you live, a domain helps customers drive directly to your website. GoDaddy can help you find one you’ll love.

The perfect domain lets people know at a glance why you’re online (and why you’re awesome). Find the right domain extension now to grab more attention and visitors.

Your website is your store front, the place people visit to find out about you and what you have to offer. My favorite site builder is Elementor which has both a free and paid version. It gives you a completely original and separate interface for creating posts, pages, and custom posts. You don’t have to know html code, and it has plenty of tutorials to help you build your site.
