I am wondering about the best way of advertising product. What have people found to be most effective - the web, print ads, etc.? Also how are you figuring advertising into your final product costs?

Cindy I am currently trying to rally up those who are on this list to participate in the group.  We can begin to share with each other in the group and decide when and how often we would like to gather.  I would like to find out what the needs of indies in NJ are so hopefully we can be a support to each other.
