25 Marketing Pros Share Their Three Best Marketing Tools

What do other marketing professionals use to improve their marketing results?

I used the prompt as inspiration for my last blog post where I shared podcasting, websites and email marketing. After reading the other 24 answers from other marketing professionals, I discover that I took the word “tool” much broader than they did.

The vast majority named a website that they found helpful, rather than a deliverable. I am surprised that I was one of the few who answered with more of a category.
