2. Mailing list.
Join a discussion or mailing list.
These are communities that already exist and discuss topics of interest by e-mail.
The 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 target rich people. And you do not place ads in such groups, you participate.
However, a 2 or 3 line signature on posts is allowed. Some groups even allow larger signatures.
Here are some FREE Resources to find and Join Free Discussion or Mailing Lists:

5. Start Your Own Mailing List.
Email is foundation of global communication on Internet.
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.
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.
Once you know WHY you want to contact people, then you will know WHO it is you need to communicate with and for WHAT reason.
The basic resources outlined above will give you a strong foundation to discover WHERE to reach that special niche or target audience of yours.
