Because so many new people are coming on the Internet all the time and being seduced by get-rich-quick advertising, there's a place for a marketing advice section on just about any site.

Feel free to post this list on your website or use it in your newsletter. You could add your own favorite links to it, and also add full descriptions of each site to make it more useful for your visitors.

You could also offer it free via an autoresponder, including a link to your site or newsletter, of course.

[UPDATE April 2004:
Don't waste time with free-for-all (FFA) sites. They used to work, a long time ago before masses of people began submitting to them automatically. I recommend using pay-per-click search engines for instant, cheap, highly targeted traffic: http://www.PayPerClickSearchEngines.com ]
