What do you recommend for advertising? I have a database development
tool that will be entering the market in about a week (or less). My
budget is pretty low ($1000.00CDN). What would be the most cost
effective way to spend this money?

Brad

Yes, I'm looking into Google Adwords. I'm also considering purchasing
online advertising at ISUG.com.

Google ad words, but be very careful what you make your top bid. It's
easy to get into a bidding war with other people for the top spot. I
normally shoot for 2nd or 3rd spot. It helps ensure I show up on the
first page of results, but it means I don't have to pay the premium
the #1 spot has to.

Is this pretty straight forward? How much do you think I would be
looking at spending? Lots of money?

It's simple enough I could figure it out. That's saying a lot!

You can place a number of limits on the spending. Just start off
small and learn the ropes.

Would you say adwords is worth it? Do you think it's effective?

That's where you need to be careful about how you use it. I got a bit
carried away during the PB9 book promotion until I learned the ropes.
It did seem to drive a lot of people to the site though (you only pay
if they actually click through on your link).

You also might run some Amazon ads on your site. If people click
through on those from your site, you recieve a commission on just
about *anything* they order from on that visit.

Start small, work up, it's EASY to adjust... don't ask, go get some
practice, Google gives you more tools than you can possibly use.

Has anyone used StumbleUpon.com for advertising? So far I'm not too
impressed with Google Adwords.
