|I don't know how many of you have heard of blahtherapy. It's a site where you go and vent your problems or listen to other people's problems.|
The site is pretty bad. Ads everywhere, backspace exits the chat suddenly, reconnection is non-existant, poor design.. So I decided to make a worthy alternative, rainychat.com. However, even though I KNOW my site is better in pretty much all ways, I have no idea how to make people realize it exists.
Do i have to pay for advertisement in google? Is reposting my site on facebook and twitter over and over again the only way? How do you promote your sites?
In my case, I have no email lists or followers already made, i'm starting from scratch - and honestly, i'm lost. What would you do, HN?
