Default Hello From Switzerland

Hi, my name is Steffen. I have just joined here, since it looks like a really good place to get ideas. I have created a web site for finding "missed connections" (bountybox.net), which has been running in Switzerland for about half a year now. Now I want to expand to UK and Australia and later on the US.

I'm here mainly for marketing tips, but also for sparring on design and monetizing.

Cheers,
Steffen

This is a great place for marketing advice, lots of experience and valuable information in the threads here. What marketing efforts have you tried so far? Anything successful?

Basically I've tried google adwords and of course also trying just to spread the word. I have also had a press release made and distributed in the UK, which resulted in a radio interview but no measurable traffic. Adwords seem like the easy but very expensive way, press releases may have more potential if the story gets picked up by someone. But I admit I'm a marketing rookie and I'm sure there are other ways that will work (better) for me.

Welcome to the forum. I am planning to visit your country next year. It looks like a great place to call home.

Hey Steffen,

Checked out the site and I love the idea. Are you trying to make it more of a social networking site too so people can help one another find that lost person? Welcome by the way!!
