June is hot in Greece, how about your place?

Now Playing: Promo


Promo is the first thing a person who has got a business of any kind must think of. 

For writers, newsletters are a plus.  Join as many as you can and start writing articles offering your link at the bottom of each one.

Yahoo groups are also a great way to get your work exposed to others.  Join groups that are relevant to your field.

Promo sites are  great too.  A good one that accepts free ads is the following 

If you have a book to promote, you can post two pictures and a long text/review/article at the cost of $30/month. Cheap and effective.

The site is bilingual(Greek/English) so there's a big market out there for all.


Friends can also pass on your news, but thta's limited.

 Google search can help as well.


Try any of these and send your comments here if you wish

Now Playing: New Promo site!


A new site that accepts ads in Greek and in English has been launched.

It aims at the Greek marketplace mainly-that's why the Greek site was built first- but will expand worldwide in due time. Visitors will soon be able to post their ads in English too.

It includes: 

Free ads(up to 20 words)

Paid ads (no limit, plus a picture if desired)

So, those who are looking for a job, they can send an ad there as well as

those who wish to promote their services or products. 

Referring to writers, they can promote their books/site.


I will come back soon with more details.
