Advertising, not sure how I feel about blatant "non-sailing" advertising just to get hits, BUT, if out of that activity you get maybe a couple of people "sticking" to the site because they actaually are interested then maybe it ain't so bad...
So, I've tried out bla.st a company that posts "cards" for advertisers at a great price (free) and allows you up the pecking order for very little investment.
So the Soulsailor Add is now up, not sure i'm happy with the design but it will do for "the first test"! Sign-up to the service was dead-easy, getting the "card" up wasn't a problem either, once I got the dimentions right!
So the sevice is easy to get going with minimal time/cost entry which is V important.. at the mnoment my card is their on page 9... It will be interesting to see how it floats up or down the stack and what if any traffic it drives my way...I'll be watching, maybe you should give it a try?
