  • There are lots of ways to increase traffic to your site:

    1) Make sure to register your site with the major search engines.

    Here are a few direct links to submit your site to: Google, Yahoo, and MSN.

    Even though Madcap Video is registered with these search engines, it is a good idea to register your personal site as well.

    2) Hand out in store material advertising your site; put fliers in your dvd sleeves, have material at the checkout counter, etc. Let your customers know you have a website and what the URL is (http://www.yourname.formovies.com)!

    3) Keep your coupons, store hours, and address up to date.

    4) Make sure to have your website address on any advertising material such as newpaper, magazines, phonebooks, etc.
  • No. Currently you cannot upload any advertising to your site.

    You can however use the "Home Page" and "Weekly Newsletter" to display custom messages to your users (see above). These can include in-store specials and promotions.
