Using these search engines by providing keywords and adword search drives specific users to you because they are in essence looking for you. You may want to limit your target to words and phrased specific to what ever it is you are offering in order to get the most efficient use of your money and create better quality impressions on these search engines. There are of course, other alternatives, considering your budget.
Social Networking sites such as Twitter, Myspace, Facebook or Youtube can be great ways to build a network with like minded people you may or may not already know .
