Try to participate on forums and social media sites that covers your niche. Build connections on these sites so that people will actually help to spread your name even further.

Also, you can try to put out contents that are related to your niche on the Internet. These contents can be in the form of articles, videos, audios or even documents. The most important thing of using these branding techniques is to make sure that all these materials have a link pointing back to your site.

For a start, you can try to participate more in this forum, while putting your site's URL in your signature at the same time.

yeah, I know of a way to build a presence in less than fifteen minutes, since you are asking

simply add a one pager to social sites (eg. blogs) and then

do a great article about what you are about

we would like to hear from you again!

so tell us where your page is

There are of ways to do it, and the success will depend on your resources and capabilities. Do you have a site or blog that talks about it?

Article marketing is one of the best ways. Having relevant articles submitted at directories like EZA will definitely help. However, your content must be really be good and will attract visitors to your site. You can hire a good SEO writer though.

Another good way could be joining social networks like Twitter. But then, you must be smart and patient to look for potential customers.

But if you plan to advertise it only, you can place ads on free or paid ad sites. Just Google it.

Hope that helps.

Adwords will do wonders if you know how to use it correctly. You wouldn't believe the amount of business we get from there. Blogs are a good way as well to update customers on what is going on with your company
