 +====== Marketing Tips ======
 +
 +This is a collection of free or nearly free marketing tips that I'm collecting. ​ Most of these are not my own ideas, they have been gleaned from books and other sites around the web.
 +
 +===== Update Your Email Signature =====
 +
 +It's a simple thing and it will only take you a few seconds. ​ Update your email signature to peddle your latest product. ​ Your signature should be as short as possible (1 or 2 lines) and include a URL or link.
 +
 +===== Announce your Product on Twitter and Facebook =====
 +
 +Post your message on Twitter, Facebook, and other any other social networks you are a part of.  If you aren't part of these networks, join them and start to build up friends or followers. ​ Don't overdue the marketing here though. ​ If all you are doing is advertising something you'll probably lose friends faster than you gain them.
 +
 +===== Create a Facebook Note =====
 +
 +Create a //note// on Facebook. Describe your product and include a link to your product page.  Make that note public. ​ Facebook pages seem to get precedence in search engines and the link may increase page rank for your own site.
 +
 +===== Review Other Products =====
 +
 +Review other peoples products on other sites and then plug your own products at the end of the review. ​ Include a link, when possible. Typically there are conditions to linking. ​ On Amazon, for example, you can currently only link to other products for sale on Amazon. ​ Make sure that your review is useful and honest. ​ Completely avoid defamation or slander by reviewing only products that you like.
 +
 +===== Join Discussion Groups =====
 +
 +Get involved in local clubs, email discussion groups, website forums, and other discussion groups. ​ Introduce yourself to the group and your product. ​ Setup a one or two line signature that announces your product. ​ Become a genuine participant and add value to the group with your responses over time.  As you become an //expert// in the group people will become interested and look at the work you're producing.
