    do you know how your going to market and do you have an email list that your going to write too? Do you have a blooming webpage and want to put a video there? If so I would look at these 5 steps for building a online relationship with customers
    1) Introduction - try to grab their attention and create open loops to keep them interested and make them want to stick around and read/watch more
    2) Story - tell a story it doesn't have to be to long and don't brag about yourself, instead let us see you for the human you are and not some untouchable being who has never made mistakes 
    3) content - this is where you give your value to them and show of your product and speak about how it changed you
    4) Transition - transition your whole conversation into the last step
    5) pitch - this is where you confirm the sale and tell the price of it

    nice question!!

    I am Public Relatoin Executuve at OPTnation

    For a startup that hasn’t settled on a product customers love, press coverage can be a huge mistake. Despite popular belief, getting as much press attention as possible right out of the gate is rarely a good idea. If you’re an entrepreneur who is ready to start scaling, that nod from TechCrunch and mention from Erin Bury could be invaluable.

    Although I know a thing or two about free publicity's value to businesses, I strongly endorse -- from the beginning -- picking a charity to whom the business will donate a percentage of its profits. 

    This is not something you'll routinely publicize. It's just the right thing to do and it's good business. 

    Down the road, you'll be glad you did this. 

    (I hope to write more about this in the future.)

    Hope this helps!

    My first answer when i read the question is with money :)

    But there is much more than money in any case. Quality PR to have effect one constant is must :that product or service must be quality and people to like it and must be involved many years in exposing the brand-product or service.

    For example:

    I will go to details about one word "apostrophe" to understand what I'm talking about.All know Grammarly yes.And only this service exist online. If you answer yes then you are wrong.Why because there is another also even better software called InkForAll which is doing the same as Grammarly even better but is not so known to the audience.Why?

    Because PR.They are short years on market despite the fact is giving better service even free and to use grammarly you need to pay.

    Well, without money I guess it isn't possible. These days everything is linked to money & also with websites with less traffic is associated, so they gonna charge a bit to maintain their website.

    So just invest on some critical thinking & come up with a crazy idea that can draw eyeballs & organic PR would cover it.
