Try exchanging links with related topic sites , optimizing your site for search engines, using banner exchanges and signing up to a good toplist site.

Before you promote, I would work on your design a little bit. Looking at the site, I had no idea what you sold - how you sold it, etc. Suppose you did promote it, and I went to it looking for something specific, I'd leave right away. You should make it easy to find what you're selling. There is a little "shop" link in the lower right corner - the absolute last place that the eye looks when reading something.

Those are my tips for you, because all the promotion in the world won't do you any good if the site is not intuitive and easy to use.

Hi Janimal,
In all due respect, I feel the same as jimbo although you did not ask for a site critique. I find it very frustrating having to scroll back and forth and up and down and all around in unneccesary frames and wouldn't stay long from getting dizzy, no offense. The 3 links you have on the right don't go anywhere so you don't need them at this point, just adds confusion. I understand that your trying to appeal to families' needs by supplying incidentals but it is much easier to go to Walmart or your corner pharmacy for those items IMO. But hey, that's just my opinion, & I coupon clip so shopping the Net takes the "thrill" out of driving around in my car being the first early bird to scoop up all the store's inventory. Did I mention I'm a professional couponoholic, heehee? http://geekvillage.com/ubb/wink.gif

Did you also notice how off topic I can get, wow?

The first thing I would recommend is to get your own domain name! You can get them as low as $9 per year and then host it with a free host until you get a little bigger.

You can check out www.webmasterlane.com/cheapnames.html I have listed over 25 low-cost registrars this should help you find a domain registrar that fits your needs.

Dedicated to making you profitable!

First of all, make sure your site is as close to flawless as you can get it. Then, get a domain (usually .com's work well). It will make advertising your site easier, will increase your public image, and will allow visitors to easily access (and remember) your web site. Once you've done all that, we can talk http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif Good luck, with patience online advertising will work for you.

I have a few friends who are in the webdesign business, and they have all gotten more traffic and customers to their site by offering something free that gives their services exposure. This is usually in the form of something like free custom graphics in exchange for a link trade, free graphics libraries that you have made, or offering free design services for popular sites in exchange for a banner or button link.

Hopefully this helps...
