lets say i want to make a poker/digital art website then i will try to conntact the online poker rooms to give us private freerolls on their clients. But that reqiueres that i have at least around 60 members on the forum. So the question is how do i get people to view my site?.
moved to site advert and seo.
Hi, A little trick that you many not know. Use ebay!
At a very little cost, 20p insertion fee sell something related to poker etc and direct them initially to your "About me" page within the item page. An About me"page can be set up in your ebay account. Then within your "About me" page suggest that they should visit your website for more info on poker etc.
Its a good way of getting cheap advertising and those that look at your ebay for sale item are focussed on the topic and therefore better leads to your website. All the above is OK with ebay rules. Just don't add the URL link in your for sale ad. It has to be within your "About me" page. I'm selling a Buy to Let Calculator on ebay, I do the same as above to direct invested parties to my website for more info on Buy to Let and Property Investment. At my web site they can then get free info plus by eBooks, get mortgage advice etc. All for which I have an affiliate account.
Hope the idea helps
I think word of mouth is one of the best ways to get any kind of message out about your product or service. If you can come up with anything unique/eclectic/wierd/zany that will be easy to remember and can generate a buzz, your pretty much set. I still can't believe how much publicity ad campaigns like Subservient Chicken and other wierd one's have got. Also, try making all your ad's like beer commercials. Think about, how many regular commercials can you remember months later and how many beer/liquor commercials can you remember. Booya.
Register in various search engines.
Yeah you need good content or good services. Think of it? why else should I visit your site? Hmm even I have used poxyproxy.
Ask some friends of yours to spread the word to 3 of there friends and then have the people your friends told tell 3 more friends and eventually you will have over 100 people! oh and the idea came from pay it forward where haily joel osmend or whatever his name is tell 3 people to do good deeds to 3 more people and then the 3 people the deeds where to do 3 more so its a giant chain effect. BTW pay it forward is a great movie so i suggest you rent it from your neighborehood blockbuster or movie place (see i'm directing you to a place without you knowing i'm advertising sort of(do it like that where you tell your friends when the subject is up about poker or gambling)).
P.S. If your a nerd then this way is horrible for you since you probably have no friends
you could also make 20 fake accounts if you had 40 people in your forum
