Default Update On The CAT'S MEOW !!!

hello everybody
Congratulations and a big to all the newbies - it's a giant step but it's one you won't regret ... if you're stubborn. I say that because there have been lots of obstacles during the past 6 months. But if you persist, it will level out and first thing you know - you will be where I am right now ... oh yea, MARKETING !
I have enough products on the site that I figured I had better dedicate a weekend to marketing. Well, Saturday I got lots of ideas...but got very little actually done...Sunday is starting out the same way. I got a bit of a shock when I found out that writing this post is reaching out to 6000+ people just like me..(Well, almost like me). That gave me a shot in the arm and ONWARD we go.
The biggest concern is how to develop the 'almighty list' - you know, that thing you HAVE TO HAVE in order to send out your messages to ...
Anybody out there that has ideas about how to get traffic to the website to signup for the newsletter? I would certainly appreciate hearing them...
and Steve and I would really like to get this newborn off the ground and moving ... SO WE CAN MOVE. OMG! so many things happening at once...well, I'd better get back to it...take care everybody. I'll keep you posted on the ongoing saga of ralph & pipsqueak!

Some ways to get traffic:
1. Get high rankings in the search engines for appropriate phrases
2. PPC advertising
3. Links from other websites (free or paid)
4. Traditional advertising

Default Thanks Torka ...

Hello Everybody, I'm in my usual spot this am - with the 'consultants'
reading the entries from yesterday...
when I let out a yell - nine yards.com looks like something I could definately be interested in so I zipped to the site and placed it in my favorites -
I haven't had a chance to check it out yet but I will later this am. THANKS SO MUCH TORKA!!
Oh yea, I DID get a couple of text ads put in yesterday...one on craigslist and another on myspace. I will have to figure out how to split up the weekdays so I can do a little marketing each and every day and still get the website work done also. Plus I have several new merchants to place also ... another exciting day - if you over our way >>> check us out -[url removed] and maybe shoot me an email (or entry into the forum here) with a suggestion of something to get?...change?...fix?or just plain dump!!
Until then meow - meow - bye

That has to be a world record for the number of smilies on a page

Nice to see another list builder with a sense of humour!

Wow! I think I've got the hang of it too.

Darn, they only allow 8 --- oh well.............

Hi Denis,

Out of curiosity, did you have any luck with the craigslist ad?
