Keep updating your blog with new and useful information about your product.
After you have created your blog you must post constantly to draw potential buyers back to your site. Write articles about your product and write about the current focus in the market for your product, the more of an expert you appear to be, the more credibility you will have. Don't be afraid to give out good and useful information about your product even if it comes from others in the industry, the more people are aware of the potential of your product, the more you will have created the need for them to buy. This is another fail-proof marketing strategy.
