Depending on the nature of your site, of course, one good way to help your visitors remember to come back and see you is by offering cool buddy icons for them to download.
It's very easy to do. First you'll need some graphics software, the Gimp is a good, free alternative to Photoshop, even Irfanview can make these though.
Start by selecting some images that fit nicely with your theme. Character graphics (people and animals) work best, but I've also seen cars, planes, computers and so on used.
Open up the graphic in your editor of choice. If the file is large you may have to shrink it some first, using image size, and constrain proportions.
Then select the region of the graphic - as evenly square as you can get it - with the mouse cursor and go into the programs menu and select ‘crop’.
Go back to the image size option in the program's function menu and resize your image to 50 by 50 pixels.
Save as either a . gif or . jpg format, and be sure the file is 7k or less, and that's it. You have a buddy icon. Make several and offer them for free download.
Now every time your visitor fires up their AIM instant messaging client, they'll see the icon they got from you and remember your site.
