I just joined this forum so I'm not sure if this is the best place to put this question...
I have recently started a new website that is dedicated to creating a new social network built around what the users want. Yes, the idea has come from the multiple users leaving facebook including many of my own friends. LOL!
Anyway, my question is, what are some good (free/cheap) ways of marketing this type of site?
As you will see, if you click the link in my signature, we currently have 2 focuses:
1. raise support for the project.
2. get people to participate by telling us what they want in our forum.
Other than asking my friends and family to spread the word, do you all have any ideas?
