Some of our clients are using their ‘social-distancing down-time’ to brush up on or learn new skills – which is great, because a lot of marketing resources have suddenly become free (at least until the Coronavirus social distancing period is over).
Here’s a running list of all the free courses and resources that might be of interest to financial marketers (some were already free; others are newly/temporarily free). We’ll keep this list updated as we discover new things.
