      Get traffic with:

      * Bum marketing -- at least one article a day

      * Forum marketing -- contribute in forums in your niche

      * Guest blog: post comments on others' blogs first, so they know who you are, then offer to write guest posts. ALL bloggers want content. :-)

      That should keep you busy, and bring you traffic and sales.

        In a video game market I would really push social bookmarking, social sites such as myspace, and video sites.

        And on the barren heath
        Sing the honey bees.
