  81. Pitch your startup to http://startup88.com/pitch-your-startup-trying-to-raise-capital-or-get-publicity
  82. Find ancillary reasons to get your service mentioned in blog posts and tutorials. For example, if your startup is an RSS mashup generator of some sort, you need to have tutorials out there that recommend your service. Get those tutorials and posts on to Reddit, Hacker News, Digg, etc.
  83. If people write about your site, write tutorials that mention you, etc, PROMOTE THAT CONTENT EVEN IF IT’S NOT YOURS! Get people reading stuff that’s about you – not by you!
  84. Remember that bigger sites like TechCrunch and ReadWriteWeb (if applicable to your sector) love exclusives. Don’t bother mass pitching those – focus on one, whichever you can get best rapport with, and offer an exclusive. Your product needs to be AWESOME for this to work though.
  85. Follow a search.twitter.com search on terms related to your service (and even the name of your service)… get in touch with people who might be interested, respond to all comments about your service.
  86. Try to submit as many press releases as possible. Use prlog.org if you can’t afford to pay for this or prnewswire.com if you’re a boss.
  87. Build ancillary “fun” services that tie into your main web app. Something fun, free, perhaps something that you can relate to sites people find interesting, such as Twitter. Let’s say your main service is an online graphics editor. Perhaps you could create a separate site where people can create avatars for Twitter / Facebook from a small set of templates.. separate project but promoting the first.
  88. Use both mention.com and google.com/alerts in order to stay on top with mentions of your company, your competitors and subjects on which you could comment about your product.
  89. Comment on other blogs and online news outlets in order to try to get your link out there in a non spammy way.
  90. (To extend this with the actual links; search terms “css design show-case”, “css design submit website”, etc.) Does your design rock? Get on to the “CSS design”, and “Web design” show case type sites. There are hundreds of them around. Not amazing exposure, but the more links the better and any one of your visitors might turn in to a serious contact.
  91. Find your way into interviews (you can’t just read something like this and keep reading; you have to actually do it)
  92. Find your way into podcasts
  93. Twitter follow/unfollow marketing (it’s easy to find with Google what’s it about); To do it, use this free tool: http://unfollowerstats.com or this freemium: https://manageflitter.com; You’ll also need an auto-clicking AHK script (use F8 to toggle auto-clicking).
  94. Interact daily with the people that you’ve followed on Twitter, fav many of their posts and retweet the best ones.
  95. Set up a message that everybody receives when they follow you. Use https://plugg.io for this, from settings -> new followers.
  96. Implement as many of these methods as possible in order to gain more followers on Twitter: http://twittertoolsbook.com/how-to-get-more-twitter-followers/(except tip #21)
  97. Find accounts (from the same field of interest as you) which engage a lot with their followers and send them offers to cross promote, even if you have more followers than they do.
  98. Create a viral contest by offering a prize to whoever sends the most traffic to your contest page. Make entrants use a contest hashtag and a bit.ly link so you can track who sends the most traffic. You can track bit.ly link clicks by adding a + to the end of any bit.ly link.
  99. Increase sales using Twitter by giving special offers and coupons to your followers. The best way to do this is to give access to those offers only to those that RT one of your tweets.
  100. Post a lot of non-promotional content as well (retweeting others might be enough). Use a scheduling tool (ManageFlitter) to space out the tweets. Promotional content can also mean pictures of your products with no text (or text on image); these get retweeted easier.
  101. Add the location of your business to Google Maps (Google Places). If you’re a perfectionist you can add it with searchable text, coupons, hours of operation, brands carried, maps, photos, video and reviews. https://www.google.com/business/
