Not just one marketing technique works.. I would suggest multiple advertising methods. Facebook fan page or group, twitter posts daily, cafemom etc. However, I have found in my years of working online that there are a few "key" things to remember. When I say key.. I'm really stressing the "keys" to success. (continued below due to word limit :)

1..Simple posting your ad everywhere online does not do justice. "connecting or networking with others is super..duper important. 2..And THE MOST IMPORTANT thing is to market correctly by using email marketing. I cannot express how important this is and how much sales and signups increase with any company when you use email marketing. I have written an article about this if you are interested in learning more. http://www.ideastoworkathome.com/makewithenewsletters.htm Hope this helps.. let me know if you have any questions.

Hi Alynn, I'm surprised no one mentioned article marketing. That's the one technique that most bloggers use to publicize their site. You want to make sure you have optimized your site for the search engines and that your using the right keywords. Also, creating a press release about your website might help a great deal. Here are some more website marketing ideas you might want to try.
