    My background is in psychology, not business. I just built a dating website using some of the most accurate psychology that can be applied to relationships. I am currently trying to figure out how I can best market this site. The site is intended to be free, as my main motivation is to teach people of my psychology. If it gets really popular and makes money in the future, then even better. Does anyone have any advice on how/where I should be marketing? I have a private donor who was interested in my psychology, but I'd rather not use him unless I need to.

    The site is called Project Evolove - an evolution in dating (www.projectevolove.com)

    Okey,When I first see your site name it doesn't sounds like a dating site but when i entered the site it was nice and with good graphics.In this age/time I don't believe people will use dating site to chat and to be mingle because facebook and social networking offers quite more.But still if you have great idea then you can have great success.I will just say focus more on connecting people by location.If both are from same place/read in same college(boy & girl) then list them each other in suggested friends.I don't have much interest/vision of dating sites let people suggestion keep coming.

    I agree with remonray. I would focus on the social aspects of the site. The concept is clever and catchy. The name does not describe what it is, but neither does Facebook.

    You might try some PR work to get visibility. Distribute some press releases and try to get media attention. That could help get the word of mouth rolling for your project.

    Good luck!

    Organize some activities in the community can be a nice idea. Inviting your neighbors to come.
    Promote the knowledge. Facebook public page can be a nice choice.
    Otherwise, some posters may work out.

    You could start with a press release about your site, emphasise it's uniqueness and the way that it is built on a foundation of psychology. That will give your press release some news worthiness. Then submit your press release to various PR sites and media publications.

    Promote the website on related forums, tell people why your website is unique. Promote on related Facebook groups and on Youtube. Make lots of videos, maybe make funny ones that could go viral, also promote through social bookmarking websites.

    if you want to do good to make you website well know by the target people, first you should find the target keywords which is good to be involved by search engine. also social media is a good platform to chat with others and maybe you can find the clients and keep a good relationship with them. it is more convenient to promote your web and then more people will be attractive to your job.

    I would strongly recommend you to have a very good social media platform. You should have a FB, twitter, G+ accounts and the most important thing is to have a strong content.

    For this site a special strategy works, the best thing is introducing your site manually to the people make a video and upload at YouTube and hire a SMM to get real views at that video such kind of activity works for your site. Article submission, PR etc not works at all.

    I would suggest to look for sites that discuss what you do and be an active contributor to their comment box, join social media sites, guest blog, join forums, make sure you know your keywords and how you can rank for them. Use google free keyword tool to assist you.

    Thanks for the tips guys. I did some of the other things you guys have suggested (working on SEO, writing a blog topic, posted on a few forums).

    When you guys say use social media like Facebook, does that mean I should just go into a group and post a comment? What exactly does marketing on social media mean?

    Social Media, in this case, would mean using your Facebook page to promote your website, and the way it works. You would gain followers by using Facebook ads and other promotional methods. Then, by creating regular posts about how your particular methods work, you would give your followers a reason to visit your Facebook page, and they would recommend their followers follow you, those followers would recommend their followers, and so on, who would all be creating conversations about you, spreading the word about your website. You would also follow others in businesses that may be related, in some way, to yours. Contributing to their conversations would also give you exposure to others who may become your followers. Be careful, when starting or contributing to conversations, that you are not always promoting. You could also periodically offer special deals to your followers, giving them a reason to visit your website, rather than simply waiting for them to decide.
