The site I'm making is dedicated to the local music scene of my area.
The thing is I'm wondering how to go about advertising it?
Any tips would be appreciated!
Search for other sites like yours, and try to affiliate with them. Worked for me.
Linking up with other sites is a good idea as local sites attract a local market.
Furtheraway 'sites' are good for general interest.
Don't bother to affiliate unless the product is related.
Ask local shops to place a flyer in their window in exchange for a 'personal recommendation' to shop their displayed on your sites.
We have a links page on our sensualseductions site, we will be happy to exchange links.
Try to get your site as high as possible in search engines. You can do that by applying affiliate and linkexchange programs and by adding your site to as much search engines as possible.
And because the site is about your area, you should try to advertise in your area, just hang flyers on phone poles etc. Or you can try the local supermarket or your music store.....
And school or or your work are great places to advertise, and because it is about your area there might be other people from your area who want to help you.
Just be creative and work hard to spread your site.
Give me your link. I will see it and give my advice.
