    Hi guys,

    I have a legit paid proxy service to allow people to watch TV shows. I don't know how to promote it. Right now I'm offering free service but the sign up rate is still very slow. I get 3 sign ups/day. My facebook event has 1300 friends but only 22 attending, and have of them are my friends.

    I don't want to do any blackhat tricks because this is a legit business.

    Any ideas are welcome.

    I will suggest to keep using your facebook.
    Open a Facebook Page, with a good design and you will grow rapidly as you are offering a good free services.

    Encourage your friends to send "Link Suggestions" to their friends and keep building a network.

    It will take time at the begging, a lot of time from you but later on it will grow by it self.

    Thanks for the recommendations. My original plan was to rely on Facebook to gain some initial traction but the crowd doesn't seem to be moving.

    I looked at fivers. If there anywhere I can buy targeted friends event invites? I'm using twiends to get "fake" fans to boost up my basecount but I want to some real customers. My event conversion rate is about 1% but now my base is not enlarging because people has no incentive to invite others. Any tricks to get more invites?


    Do you guys think it's a good idea to go head-to-head against an established competition? I know the competition is spamming at a popular and his thread has over 90k views. However, posting on that forum is my last option because I don't want my competition to know that I exist yet. I have few good ideas that can be easily copied if my competition knows about me too early...

    Thank you all!!!
