Here at gCaptain, we have relied primarily on search engine optimization (SEO), regularly updating the blog, word-of-mouth and some great partnerships to grow the site. So far, it has worked really well for us. We are now receiving over 100,000 unique visitors monthly and growing at a rapid pace. Furthermore, having done this with little to no marketing budget is something we are very proud of. But most all the low hanging fruit has been picked and now that we are doing this full time, we are ready to take it up a notch…sort of.
We have been exploring and participation in the use of social networking sites (see where to find us below) since they first started appearing on the web. At the same time we feel that we have barely tapped into the true viral marketing potential of many of them. That being said, we are going to start putting a lot of time and energy into using social networking sites to share content, recruit and retain visitors and further build the gCaptain brand.
But before we expend all this energy, we want to know… What are you and your peers using?
