I have a site for kids - how do I get the word out?
I have built an online wish list builder, geared towards children. It allows parents to register for free, add a wish list and then let the kid can browse a very kid friendly catalog of toys, books, movies and games.
It is meant to allow children to build their own wish lists for upcoming holidays and birthday parties, and be sent out to friends, family and anyone planning on bringing a gift for the child.
I have tried several ways of raising awareness, but no matter what I have done so far, nothing seems to be getting the message in front of my audience.
The site is (I think) extremely beautifully done. Certainly one of my best, with colorful graphics, flash animation, a theme with characters and a story.
I have tried a $300+ press release on PRWeb, posting articles, posting to social bookmarking sites, and even a handful of holiday and parent related forums. I have also printed colorful business and post cards, which I have left in some local places where parents tend to frequent. I have tried so many things, but I cannot seem to manage to get more than 10 people a day on average to actually visit the site. I have even been trying paid advertising, and have barely gotten any clicks.
Some things I am working on now are some SEO, and have recently submitted to some design sites in the hopes that they will feature it just for some exposure, even if it isn`t exactly the audience I am trying to reach.
I have tried contacting parenting blogs to see if they would be interested in
I know my market is out there somewhere, I am just not sure of how to reach them. Somewhere out there, there is a mob of parents who would love to find this website, but so far, they have just been barely trickling in.
The feedback I have received so far is astounding. The people who actually do find it, love it.
Does anyone here have any ideas of where or how I might find an audience for this website?
