Marketers - what's in your toolbox?

There will always be debate over which tools will best serve marketing efforts. Wordpress for blogging, Facebook for networking building; the list goes on and on.

We hit another milestone today: twenty-thousand sites have been created with Drupal Gardens. It was only two months ago that we hit the 10,000 sites milestone.
