    Hi everyone.
    I’ve been following FlyingSolo for a while but now it’s time to get active!
    I just launched my online business (based in Brisbane) on the weekend.
    Might head over to the marketing forum now to seek ideas on how to get my site ‘discovered’.
    Any feedback is most welcome.
    Cheers,
    Sam

    Hi Sam,

    Welcome to the forums and congrats on your business launch! Exciting stuff :D

    Love the idea of your site and the products. Solves the usual “What the heck do I buy a man?” problem :-)

    There are lots of ways to get your site discovered, and they all either cost money or time. If you have time but not money…
    – Try blogging more to get more traffic to your site
    – Go hard on social media with high quality content for your audience
    – Build relationships with bloggers who might feature your product
    – Send out press releases to media (topics might include “What to buy your husband this Christmas”, “5 Things Men Hate to Get as Gifts” and things like that)

    If you have money…
    – Google AdWords
    – Facebook advertising
    – Paid features in magazines and blogs
    – Online competitions

    Those are just my initial thoughts. :-)

    Wishing you all the best in the coming weeks and months!

    Angela
