I'm new to this whole IM thing, and am still taking in the landscape. Here's where I am:
I have created a software product in the financial commodities niche.
I am using twitter to log the success of the product (track record to refer to later, and to source purchasers).
I am in the process of creating a site to sell the software.
The software itself will be offered on a subscription basis (purchaser pays $10 a week or so)
What I am wondering is.. what is the best method of getting the party started? Obviously I need to get the site up and direct my twitter follows to it. Aside from that, purchase keywords? Do the Facebook thing? post on forums?
I'm considering making it available for affiliate sales too - eg. Affiliate would receive 5 - 10% of recurring revenue while their lead continues to pay. Would that be helpful?
