Entrepreneur Magazine is a good magazine, filled with useful tips. The Oct. issue contained an article that, for novices, provides some good marketing ideas.

However, I did like the idea to make employees a sales tool -- too many companies forget to do that.
Still, if you don't have much marketing experience, check out the article.
