Thank you for the list. There are two I will have to check out as I have not heard of them.

A recent one that just came about is TheCardBoard.net . It's a free online business card bulletin board. You can include a description of the products and services you provide as well as a link back to your website.

Youtube is probably the best way to market online. It is one of the most popular websites , it is free and you can show motion pictures of your product... it is like having people walk into your shop every day. However, I do struggle getting enough views... How would you say the best way to get lots of views is?

My experience with YouTube videos and other free media channels is that you need a hook. The best hook I’ve found to work is the ‘resource’ hook. Create ‘how-to’ videos and post them on YouTube and/or other sites like eHow. To drive traffic you can post links to the videos in relevant groups on LinkedIn and Facebook. Make sure the groups you join are relevant. It may take a few days for the group owners to get back to you, so be patient and follow up if needed. Hope this helps!
