Hi, My name's annabella.
Interesting or important topic? Please click "vote topic higher" if you think so.
I have recently started a website called www.bedandfed.co.uk (a database of 'kitchen supper, bed and (simple) breakfasts' for £35pppn or less), but I have a problem:
Currently I am trying to build up a database of at least 200 members all over the country before I feel I can approach any newspaper to do a story - HOWEVER, the website at the moment is aimed at I think mainly housewives who want to make SOME money only SOME of the time without having to run a full time business (For example the members in Perthshire are the right kind of people and have understood the concept completely) but I am finding it impossible to get through to these people -Additionally people in cities, not necessarily housewives but really anyone with a spare room could take advantage of the website and make a lot of money. I know people like this are out there but it is very very difficult to get to them and I have little or no budget for advertising unfortunately.
It's a bit of a conundrum - like a weird logic puzzle - bit of a chicken and egg situation, but I wondered if anyone might have any bright ideas?? please do let me know - email@example.com I'd be so grateful!

Mmm... ok.. you create a web site so I think you'll advertise what you are offering and you’ll also want to spread a word about your products or services to the world. You can easily and quickly do it via email. E-marketing is certainly one of the most powerful strategies in internet marketing. It’s quick, cost effective – you do not have to pay a set price for every email that is sent out – and allows contact people in all parts of the world. So, you can get more purchasers and respectively more revenue for less investment of time and money.
You can use online bulk emailing services, or you can pay a marketing firm to do your bulk email promotions, or you can use direct email marketing software to distribute your email campaigns sitting at your computer.
I hope this information is helpful to you
