Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I run a service for bloggers. It's a bit of both: online directory and blogging community.
I wonder how can I target that group of audience most effectively and at the lowest possible cost. I've been writing on technorati, del.icio.us, and I do have several signups from there. However I'm not that satisfied with those results.
Can anybody share any thought on that?
post a video on you tube (a review of the thing that you promote)
add the site to social bookmarking sites (stumble upon, spicy page etc.)
attach a blog to your site and add it to blog directories.
start a contest on your blog and give the winner a tempting prize
invite a guest blogger to blog about a topic on your blog
get a review from the review me site
There are loads of ways to spread the buzz. Do not hesitate to utilize them all. And don't be scared of getting badmouthing about your site. The do get attention as well. Hope you find other ways and good luck!
