      Plan each and every hour of my day for the next 6 months after launch.

      Once developed, I would hit big tech sites such as mashable, tech crunch etc to get myself published

      obviously make all friends/family aware - set them a target. "you must get 10 users every week" tell your friends to tell their friends etc.

      talk to university lecturers and tell them to give me 10minutes before their lecture so I can talk to their students about something exciting

      Social sites that have higher percentage to send traffic outwards such as Pinterest and Tumblr to be used, yes I'd do a little Twitter and Facebook but I wouldn't bother longer than 15minutes a day don't forget YouTube probably the most important platform to sell yourself.

      I could probably type another 50 but I'll let this thread continue first =)

    He kind of did it the best way.... by telling his friends... But if I had it my way I would do a funny parody video, something that would get tons of views and at the end say "sponsored BY"... BOOM... tons of visitors...

    Cheers,

    Hey Patrick...you beat me to that answer. LOL.

    If FB did not yet exist, there are still loads of other social media sites and forums and places you could advertise so it's still possible for things to go viral. Lucky for Zuckerberg that he was in the right frame of mind at the right time and ,Voila! billionaires galore!

      Well, if you were Mark Zuckerberg and you would like to get hits to your website, social media promotion and video marketing would be great avenues. You could promote it via the social sites that were popular then. Like, Friendster, for example, and others. Word of mouth is not a bad thing too. You can start by enticing your friends and family to check out your website and ask them to invite the ones that they know to do the same thing.

      I like the blasting of community part aka classified ads online & this can be done offline through leaflets - decent idea mate.

      Yes, can't exactly start in university if you're not attending however definitely do lectures within colleges/universities - a good idea indeed.

      Depends if the start-up has such budgets but I guess you should definitely put some funds aside to see the conversion rate of the users that actually join rather than just land & leave.

    Considering that Facebook is the most successful social networking site ever and made Zuckerberg a billionaire, I wouldn't do anything differently.

      He had much to none competition at his time, the question is if it were launched tomorrow by yourself how would you go about promoting it out.

      Keep in mind there are dozens upon dozens of social networks that are trying to make its way but when Facebook came around it was "something new" that's why everyone jumped at it.
