The service is something that a visitor might want every now and then and hence there is a good reason to come back. But from what I see, people have lived without such a solution for as long as the internet has existed. So, I am afraid that while people may find it cool and appreciate the owner for the work, they may soon get back to their old ways.
The service does not need any registration and so I am not able to capture all the visitors' info. What I have done is that I am trying to get visitors 'like' my websites' Facebook page so that I can get back to them on every feature update, etc. But that number of Facebook fans is disproportionately low at the moment so I do not know if that alone will suffice.
The service is "viral" to an extent - it is built around sharing content so I am sure that once it reaches the critical mass, it should expand forever. But I am concerned about the inertia of people stopping me from reaching the critical mass.
Is there anything you can think of that I can do apart from getting reviews and "spreading the word"?
