    I have created a virtual mall of my own and am in the process of putting more stores into my mall.

    Can anybody tell me what the best way to help promote my virtual mall? Sharing your experience will really help a lot.

    What you can do is identify "hot" products in specific areas of your virtual mall. You can then do some research and write articles about them on Ezines like EzineArticles.com...and show people where they can buy the products (your mall).

    Try find who the potential buyers for your products are, and advertise so that they are aware of your mall.

    Ever tried to Squidoo? (no, it's not a sneeze... [​IMG] it's a real place where you can introduce your products to the world for free...)

    You need to ask yourself WHY anyone would buy from
    your store instead of Amazon and other big online retailers.

    Virtual Malls are generally not a good idea. The appeal is
    too general. When you try to sell everything to everybody
    you can only compete on price... and I doubt you have the
    lowest prices.

    I would try to convince everybody you know to buy through
    your site so you can make some money. Tell them 10%
    goes to charity or something.
