Next, build on your list by joining discussion or mailing list groups that are already established. These are communities that already exist and discuss topics of interest by email.
Internet discussion groups may be mailing lists, newsgroups, message boards, chat rooms or IRC type chat channels, to name just a few possibilities.
Seek out moderated type lists as they are loaded with your Niche people. And, what you do on these groups is quite simple; you participate.
You do NOT try to place ads as that is SPAM.
However, virtually all such groups do allow those that participate to include a 2 to 4 line signature. Some groups even allow larger signatures.
NEVER underestimate power of your signature.
During a one-week period, my signature was ONLY form of promotion I used and in just five days we got over 1000 visitors to our unadvertised web site.

Remember, it is essential to begin your own mailing list of people that AGREE to receive your email.
Perhaps once a week, with a word of interest, you send out a mailing with info directly related to your common interest.
It is important to keep lines of communication open with your community of people.
But do NOT just send out ad upon ad. No one likes to be bombarded with ads from others.
Send out information that will be informative and of interest.
This gives you a basic "Blue Print" to follow to either begin to establish yourself on Internet or expand on whatever you have already accomplished.
The basic resources outlined above will give you a strong foundation to discover WHERE to reach that special niche or target audience of yours.
