I've gotten a page up and running. It's some what appealing but not the best in the world. I am wondering how I can start spreading the word, fire, using Facebook.
I've gotten the site up, I've added a share button. Now what can I do to get other people on Facebook to visit the site and click share as well? I need to have at least a 1000 Facebook shares to show that enough people are interested. Should I use advertising?
My audience is Gen Y and Gen Z. What can I do to get their attention?
You can try first to create some content on the web site.
Not seeing how it adds value to your prosepects, answer that to your customer and then try to start the fire.
So far, some really good answers. I can only offer you the idea which we're looking to use to get our site up and running:
Not sure if there's a way to "start fire", but certainly you can try to ignite. The golden rule -- contact the group that would most benefit from your offer.
I just launched an online tool and tried to announce it on Facebook and Twitter. The response was look-warm. Then I went to Yahoo groups and posted to the target groups and within hours I had more new accounts created in that segment then I usually get in a month.
There's no formula but one thing is for sure -- if you try noting, you'll get nothing.
OK, just noticed your link and visited the site. Couple points:
-- You site is about winning prizes, i.e. have fun, but the current design, although clean, is dull and corporate (gray/blue?..). First I thought it was about some secure storage solution or investor relations page... Take a look at giants like Coke and others that run contests all the time.
-- You've got couple of seconds to sell your site before your visitors back-click. If you want anyone to join in -- you can not expect them to read the copy to understand what is it all about. Grab their attention with something they'd recognize or can relate to. If this step is accomplished, give them another bit of info about your site.
