i was confused because
Marketing is when you spend money to sell your image and generate more sales
we used it as a tool to inform members? to send invitations for events, etc

so i am not sure

From a tax basis, it probably won't matter.  
You can think of Constand Contact like Postage -- the mail must go out - to prospects, to customers, to vendors - it is an expense.
If you want to split the monthly charges to see marketing, customer retention, event expenses - then you can have more categories (even subaccounts) to the charges.
This is best determined by how the reports are used for business analysis and planning.
Where do you charge web page hosting and email expenses?
