Ok, I got my site up and running.. now I'd like to hear some tips from others... how do you attract new users to sign up if your site is basically new and without users? I might make a few "fake" accounts but I'm not sure about it. The other thing would be to ask some of my friends to register.... What else is there ?
My site is about one specific genre of music.... so my target is people who like that specific genre of music.
My user section is basically like myspace... Users can create profiles, fill in fields like "about me", "favorite stuff", manage buddylist, create photo gallery, etc....
There's another section, the "content" section, where I plan to put different articles about that kind of music.... info about artists, etc.... That content will eventually bring people from search engines to my site.
it's really basic site, matter of fact, nothing fancy yet... Focusing on putting more content in the begining.
Thanks in advance for any tips
