            I have actually just stumbled up upon a new marketing system that enables you to manage your website/leads and get your message out to the customer base like never before. Visit faq.moresalestoday.com. There are really so many benefits you just need to look at it. It combines the services of a site like constant contact with the service redered by a your webmaster and the SEO company. Check it out you will be blown away.

              Take advantage of the free marketing tools out there, then slowly build an ad budget and hit some more traditional areas.

              Make a blog, Facebook Fan Page, Twitter profile, Linked In profile, etc. Participate in the social media scene, especially Facebook. They have more than 400 million users, even my grandma is on there! Then when you bring in some clients spend a bit of money. Take out a Facebook ad, buy or trade for sponsored posts in popular niche blogs (search them, they're everywhere), then if things really start going well, take out banner ads on websites your clients frequent.

              That's the plan I follow at least. I do most of my own design and writing though, so if you aren't doing that, there's a whole other PR/Marketing facet to it. Good luck!
