I created a site (www.findmoby.com
) that allows people to post pictures/messages on their website/myspace/forum/blog
simply by sending the picture or SMS text message from any mobile phone (and via email from blackberry, etc.). The picture is converted to a polaroid-style photo with the user's message printed at the bottom, and recorded on a user's profile page, and the user can put a link on any site so that the most recent picture is always displayed there.
Upon sending a picture or text message, the sender receives list of the latest message sent by each of the sender's friends, allowing the sender to keep track of his friends via mobile phone, and receive comments posted to his profile via text message. I am seeking ways to market this service.
I am not experienced with marketing and I need as much and as detailed advice as possible, but I would value most greatly advice specifically relevant to this site's services and its prospective customers (bloggers, webmasters, myspace users, forum posters, etc.). I am looking for input on:
1) Online communities likely to find the service useful
2) Creative ways to promote the site among these target groups
3) Applications that may broaden the site's appeal beyond casual users
4) Ways to partner with existing sites or companies
So far I have posted on the MySpace forums and a number of similar social networking sites, but I believe that working directly with one or more web communities or companies would be more productive than these sporadic efforts, none of which reaches a significant number of eyeballs.
Thanks for your help!
