I created a little website called BabyNotify.com which initially was built only for ourselves. My wife convinced me to create a "public" version. After we released it we got some press from different websites and also a few "real" users.
I am not running any ads yet, but I have some ideas how to implement offers from companies. I don't want to spam it and want to keep it as simple as it is now.
My questions are:
1) Of course I think it's the best tool in the world - but how can I increase my traffic and convince more people to use it? I have a Twitter, Facebook, etc - posted the link everywhere - anyone know the magic how to spread the word? 2) How do I approach big companies (like Pampers or Similac) to advertise on my internet tool. How do you deal with big corporations? 3) Baby-R-Us has a online registry - I want to approach them and offer them to include BabyNotify in their service and create a special version for it that integrates in their existing system. But how can I do that? Do I need to know somebody high-up or do I have a chance when I just approach them myself? 4) What if I want to make the big bucks with it - where do I start with Investors - is it too early?
Tell me also what you think about my internet tool :-)
