    Has anyone here launched an auction site, even if you only have a few users?
    If so, how did you get the first people to register?
    Now, my site cost nothing to join. I have a target market.
    I know this is not easy, since you have to them to list there first.
    any ideas?

    advice ive always been given is create something people want and they will come. unless your site is linked to an already big site or you have a very big marketing budget i would start with listing some items yourself make them really good deals.

    The easiest way i found people to get to the site was to use Facebook and Twitter to drive traffic to the site by putting links on there for people to visit. Also look around for forums already running in the product category you are aiming at and then put some links in there to your site. The more links you have then the better, and if like me you don't have a massive marketing budget then i found this very successful.

    I just set up an auction site for my local area and I've been advertising it on craigslist and other local classified sites and forums. My site's had over 300 visitors in the last 4 days but nobody has signed up for it yet. I'm not sure why that is.

    hi i have used facebook to get a lot of traffic to my page, but to get people to join depends on how many auctions you have, the more auctions you have, the more members.
    It is always hard work to start something up, and I have had over 10,000 visitors but only 32 members and I'm sure it's because there are too few auctions on my site
    do not give up, keep on advertising ...
    I also use google adwords, and have got a bit of traffic from there too

    it always costs something to earn something

    my site www.one2auction.dk

    Really nice site.
    Have you made the theme by yourself?
