• Aaron Kahlow, chairman and founder of the Online Marketing Summit and managing partner of search and usability firm BusinessOnLine

Hi Mark, what a great resource of sites to have! I'm so glad I stumbled upon your article because after visiting some of these sites I don’t know how I managed to maneuver through the internet without them. I think that these are great sites for everyone to have at their disposal but I admit it was a little frustrating having to cut and paste each site. I think it would be helpful if you provided direct links to each of them in the post. It would make it much more accessible for your readers! Thanks and keep up with the great posts! :)
