=> Day 5 - Be An Expert, Have An Opinion
Believe it or not people are interested in what *you* have to say! Several websites are even willing to pay you for your opinion! (And we all have an opinion, don't we!) Remember, it's good to talk, especially if your listeners then visit your website!
If you *really know your stuff*, you can become an 'expert' at several sites. You may have to write articles on your subject of expertise, or just answer questions from site-visitors. Either way *you* gain more exposure, and your site gains more exposure too.

=> Day 6 - Start A Joint Venture
A joint venture can be as simple as joining an affiliate program. But basically you sponsor another's product and take a share in profits. Joint ventures can also improve 'site-stickiness'.
You need to:
a) CONTACT webmasters who market similar products/services and ask them if they would be interested in offering yours. Share profits, and it's a win-win situation. b) PROMOTE another webmasters' product or service (something you believe in) to your subscribers or customers.
=> Day 7 - Follow Up!
No new websites to visit here; no new methods of promotion. Just an opportunity to measure success (or otherwise) of previous 6-days' efforts. This is a time to follow-up and perhaps plan for next 6-days.
=> And If All Goes Well...
If all goes well then just take a break, but if you're really keen, however, you *could* take a look at some of these other promotion methods too:
* Encourage visitors to bookmark your site * Use pay-per-click search engines * Write a press release * Run a competition * Create great content, and allow others to use it * Create an online community
