    I have recently started a home business with discount prescriptions, organic
    remedies, vitamins, and pet rx’s. They tell me it is very hard to be recognized or
    found on the net without spending lots of money in advertising. Can you tell me the
    best and fastest way to get my web site exposed without going into debt? Thank you

    Do something outrageous and make sure the press knows about it, especially if it’s something that benefits charity. Use the free press release distribution services.
