keywords research tool
, narrow down keywords to avoid competition with big website,
make the keyword for local search by adding your place name, which will help to achieve success easily.

Don't buy email database to grow your business, don't send emails to purchased emails, that never works, just waste of time and money, that may also spoil the reputation of your brand and domain.
However, email marketing is very powerful and cost effective, so try to capture email ids by creating a subscription option on your webpage, send them clean newsletter about your offers / products etc. once or twice a month.
Remember, Subject line plays very important role while sending newsletter, be creative while creating a subject line
Wherever possible join platform for free advertisement site like VAdsN.Com, post nice content with catchy headline there, so people come and check your site. Avoid paid advertisement, unless you have plenty of money to spend on Ads, remember small amount of money may not get you any result.

Also use "fetch as google" & "fetch as bing" for all main pages for quick indexing , Submit your RSS feed in “feedburner”
