Each week I like to post useful tools and resources that you may be able to use for your business.  The resources I post here are either free or available at a low cost.

I don’t go into much detail here, so feel free to check them out yourself and let me know what you think.  If you know of any great tools and services that will help small business owners, please share them in the comments below.


Google Adwords Express – Adwords Express is built for local businesses looking for local customers.  It's a quick and easy version of the full Adwords platform and is much easier to use.  Knowing that many local businesses were not signing up for Google Adwords because of it's complexity, Google decided to make things easy for small and local businesses.  Adwords Express does not have all of the features of it's big brother, but it's a quick and effective way to start marketing your local business online.  You can read about my Google Adwords Express announcement here.


Tout–  A neat little web app that  coordinates and streamlines your emails with Templates, Tracking and Scheduling.  It doesn't replace your existing email client or CRM system, but augments it and adds some cool features that you may be currently missing.  Free and paid plans available.
