Tell a friend script

To encourage your users to spread the news of your website you could make use of a "tell a friend script."

This is simply a system where you have a prepared message, and invite users to input their contacts email addresses into an input box, click "send" and the message is sent. As an example, we have set one up here for this website, using the "Recommend It" service.

You can get a similar service from Hitbox .

Note that whilst using a third party is easy, some people may be disuaded from using it, as emails are also passed on to the third party.

The concept is solid though, and at the very least you should seek to encourage users to pass on your web site address to others. With a little more expense you can get your programmer to insert a script that does this under your own branding.
