    Hello all,

    I have spent the past year or so creating a custom band merchandise website and now it is time for me to start getting people to the site. I am in a band myself and I understand the need for custom band merchandise that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I worked with a bunch of suppliers and I pretty much beat every one of my competitors on price by a large margin (sometimes 50%). The problem is I don't know how to reach out to people and get listed on the front page searches of my niche. I have followed the basic steps of submitting my site maps to google, using alt fields, etc.. I am also working on social media, creating an instagram account and liking tags of my niche.

    I have read through some posts on here and I see a lot of posts about having secondary sites that link back to my main website. Many people say to create websites with product reviews and press releases. How might I do that for my kind of niche? It's all a little confusing to me, how can I review a product that is custom (say a pack of stickers) between all of my competitors and me. What kind of secondary sites would I create? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
