    I am going to be launching a new service that will build lots of web 2.0 back link for website owners. It is basically a website announcement service that will also build one way back links. What I need is some advice about where I can announce my service to get lots of website owners to beta test the service the beta testers will get a coupon code that gives a 90% off discount makeing the cost $.50 for a couple hundred 1 and 2 tier back links.

    Thanks for your interest I knew here would be good but wasn't sure if i would have to pay to announce it here and was looking for other places. Preferably places I could advertise it for free or low cost.

    well lets be honest lots of people could be sceptical paying for beta....(lots of scam out there) and you do not really have much reputation on this forum.

    as for advertizing options seo forums are your best bet. None can be listed here but if you type in seo forum or search optimization forum or how to seo you will find a good amount.You want to go after people that use/need such services.

    prweb press release could also work very well but I would concentrate on seo forums first as thats where most of your clients would come from.

    thinks to keep in mind is that you would need some good reviews by respectuble users on forums to have sucess with it.

    also what will make your product/service better from other such services?
    I personally used web 2.0 bandit for 2.0s.

    Iam, preaty sure I covered all your questions now one for you .... Can I test it?:D


    oh and do not use xrumer posts on seo forums it would be a bad idea. If you do not know what xrumer does its a automotic forum poster.

    If I set up a free beta test I would have to set up a password protected page for the beta testers to use as opposed to the payed submit page, but on most of the im forums my post count is not high enough to send those testers the password in a private message and i don't just want to post it in the tread. Any suggestions?

    yes why not create a private forum for beta testers? This way they could report beta bugs in the forum.

    Or just put your email in the post so that choosen people could email you.

    That is an excellent idea I don't know why I didn't think of a forum before but I will definitely do that.

    Also that made me realize the whole system is set up on a word press blog so I could have beta testers sign up and make the beta submit form only visible to members of a certain level. I would still have to manually set their level so for time sake I would need to limit the number of beta testers.

    Any suggestions on how I could get the most influential members of each forum to beta test for me.

    Can paypal be used without charging the customer anything like a 100% off coupon with out me having to pay a processing fee?

    If I were you I would just create a thread an each forum stating that you need beta testers and then look for replies. I would pick the ones that were their the longest and have a decent post count.

    Yes you can use paypal for subscriptions. But you will always have to pay some sort of processing fee. Paypal fees

    $0 to $3,0002.9% + $0.30$3.20 fee on a $100 sale$3,000+ to $10,0002.5% + $0.30*$2.80 fee on a $100 sale$10,000+2.2% + $0.30*$2.50 fee on a $100 sale
