Help! Marketing ideas needed
www.alfiedog.com is going well. For those who don't know, we are aiming to be the best short story download site on the internet. We have taken on over 100 writers from across the globe and accepted over 400 stories. I need to spend some time trying to market the site to readers rather than writers and would welcome any and every suggestion you may have. If you know of readers sites / blogs etc that might accept an article from me or any other group that might be interested, please can you let me know? My vision is to create a decent paid market for writers, but to do that I need readers too. I believe passionately that writers are asked to give their work fro free far too often - or worse actually pay to have it seen, through competitions, internet sites and even magazines. No one thinks anything of paying 69p for a music download so now we need to get them thinking the same way about 39p for a short story. You are all worth it. We have some brilliant stories - many previously published in magazines, others from writers starting to make their way, who judging from their work will one day be famous. We have a particularly good humour section, a great children's section and well just about something for everyone (Except erotica or extreme graphic violence).
Any and every idea, no matter how small will be considered.
