Articles about the site are submitted to paid ad sites. There are varying fees for ads that usually run for at least 30 days. the advertiser, with additional fees, can put eye-catching background, logos or fonts to make the advertisement stand out from the rest. A good place to start would be http://www.prweb.com

5. Send Mails
Some internet marketers start without a mailing list. Be creative and find some lists you can rent or buy. You can start with the direct mail marketing service at the US Postal Service ( http://www.usps.com ) What you can also do is to work on building your own list by giving away something free such as a free report on how to build mlm successfully, a free ebook, etc.
6. Article Submission
As visitors to the article submission site read your articles, they come across the resource box where the author's contact details are found. If the reader becomes interested with the information in the article, then, the author can be easily contacted. That would be part of the author's own mailing list.

Some sites check before they agree to link with other sites. Choose sites related to your product or services offered.
As in article submission, the blog's content will make the reader interested or curious enough to visit the site. Make sure you have a sign up page on your blog where people can sign up for your free offer, free ebook, free report, etc. This will enable you to capture people's contact info and continue to stay in contact with your list.
9. Submit Videos in You Tube or Myspace
The membership of both sites attest to the popularity of videos. Think of the potential traffic an interesting video can drive to your site.
