A glitzy Web site devoted to the product or service, use of direct e-mail marketing, banner ads and strategically placed advance launch info to cultivate fans and customers were the main elements proposed.

Also proposed but to a lesser degree of importance, offering a free download or sample, forming partnerships with related product or service company sites and building "online buzz teams", that is, people hired to talk about your product or service in a very positive light via online forums, chat rooms and discussion mailing lists.
