To give more content to a "Web 2.0" marketing and sales strategy may be this can be dubbed as "build it and they will come". This may sound a bit scary and not entirely true. I think what proves successful is something riding on a social movement (the famous viral marketing). Word of mouth is a very powerful tool, but it may not apply to any project. So we have to give to the platform right from the start the angle that will resonate within certain communities (can be national unemployment agencies, regional programs,..).
Another aspect is that I think the marketing and sales costs should stay "very" low for a long period of time. I don't really see the platform catching fire like u-tube did and it must be ready to live for a long time on a diet. This is an additional reason to try using existing networks (like agencies and programs mentioned above) to grow the awareness around the platform. -- FredericBaud
