    At school, I'm doing a research project on promotion and marketing methods. Could you all rate these from 1 to 10 (10 being best) showing how you feel they rank? I want to see what everyone thinks and get some opinions so I can say what percentages of people like certain methods... Thanks!

    FFA pages are a lot of hype. The little amount of visitors you'd get surely wouldn't be quality ones (who is bored enough to find sites through an FFA listing?)

    I have ranked these accroding to how well they would effect my site. Many link exchanges and button/banner ads can ruin the look of a site. Since my site currently is a subscription purchased site, I need to keep it as free of advertising as possible!

    Also, as far as magazines that is a grey area. A niche magzine would get a much higher ranking the something like People ot Time.

    any good luck!

    I'm a little confused... do you want which are most effective, which help my site best, or what?

    Thanks for all the input so far guys! I'll be collecting this type of data until I get enough info to really be able to analyze this (at least 500 people). I'm getting alot of input. It looks like I'll have this finished around the end of the semester (End of January) and I'll be sure to share my results with everyone here are the SP forums.
