I need marketing help for a new web service

7 replies
Hi everyone,

I need your help in putting together a marketing/action plan for a new web service I have developed. It is not an internet marketing service. I am sorry I cannot disclose more without offending moderators here.

I just want to have opinions on how one could effectively launch a new site to get the right buzz and give me a good start. This service is purely online and directed towards small business people.

Currently I have planned the following:

Press release
Articles
videos
Coupons
Affiliates
Forums
etc

Any help would be highly appreciated.

    Unless you can divulge more specifics about the product/service or exactly who you are trying to target then it is very hard to give you any specific advice.

      By the way, in addition to the information above, The target customers are anyone without a technical background who wants to setup a website for business but is concerned about the security of the site and hopeless if the site is hacked. The person also have huge problem when there are some settings on the site which needs to be configured to be able to secure the site properly or run additional scripts on the site.

      I have no problem divulging the content of the service as I really want sound advice on this. I just don't want the thread taken down like I am trying to promote my service. But I will give it short.

      I have a strong information security background and I have put that together in a service. What we do is to help people secure their sites initially after the install for a fix low price and also provide a fast response team to help our potential clients when their site is compromised. we can also provide other technical support but mostly relating to information security. This is purely an online service and no offline activity. People can reach us 24/7 through the normal ways like email, phone, skype etc. that way we hope to build trust.

      I hope to provide the service for a fix price because I want people to know what the cost is going to be before they buy a service from me. The promise is after we have made the commitment we will resolve the issue even if it cost us money.

    You know a lot about internet marketing as i see by your list. So just take action and you will definitely succeed.
    Also if you are trying to make payd press release go via prweb, and just order a server then as usual host can crash.

      You are right. I do know a few things about internet marketing. Sometimes, because of working alone, I want to make sure I am on the right path on this and also hoping to get one or two hints to add to what I am already doing because this is the first time I am actually trying to market a service.

      Thanks for your encouragement.
