Attracting Users

So, the Dazlus appears to be successful in the sense that users are able to get the things done they need to do - set up an actors profile, add photos, and link to videos. I haven't had any complaints, and I have a pretty good conversion rate.

So the next challenge, the real challenge is getting users to come to the site in the first place. I'm trying a number of strategies. My second post on Craigslist was flagged and removed. Wrong category I think. I believe if we could post some projects and roles we'd get a lot more signups and have a valid reason to post to Craigslist.

We'll see if we can get this in place next.

I've also signed up for a number of bulletin boards where actors hang out and talk about strategies to improve their careers, and I'm trying to get into those conversations where it makes sense. A couple clicks now come from these links.

Also, this blog seems to send a relatively lot of traffic to Dazlus.

And, for SEO, I'm adding some features that should help. Thanks to Tony Wright for his suggestions at the last Seattle Tech Startups meeting.
