    Really? What have you tried so far?

    Not until you can prove that you've done some research on your own and aren't expecting to be spoon fed when the answers are so easy to find and abundantly available.

    you will find a variety of methods that we use with some of the most popular ones being articles and Squidoo.... I personally like to use the One Week Marketing Plan whenever I want to promote a particular item or product.

    Good luck![​IMG]

    Chicago,

    Since you've mentioned some general methods, I'll add some general things to your list of things to investigate. Let me know if that's what you're looking for:

    Ezine Articles
    Squidoo
    Press Releases
    Yahoo Answers
    Facebook
    Paid Hosting
    Blog commenting with sig link
    You already seem to know about forum participation with sig links

    If you can be more specific about what you're looking for (such as ways to drive traffic, ways to monetize, or whatever) and what you've specifically tried, we can better assist you.

    chicagostyles: What does squidoo do?
    Go see:

    www.squidoo.com

    Like I said, you have to do your own footwork first. If after you've tried hard with something and still can't figure it out, then consider asking about it.

    Videos, articles and forums (social networking) are your top 3 free marketing methods.

    Free advertising is not necessarily fast traffic generation but it does work. Just applying those 3 above with the right product/service and keyword research and you'll get quality traffic. Buyers, well that just depends on what you are offering.

    With the right biz offline marketing will work wonders also.

    My favorite method is to give away free stuff. People love free things. If your site is attractive after they get something free and get to your site you can usually get them to look over what you have to offer. For me free is king.
