Suppose we have this structure

To do something, we can do this. For another option, we can do that too.

Which adverbs can be used in replace of For another option, or "in another way" (note these are my own terms)?

Additionally, In addition or Also doesn't seem to fit, because they would imply we can do this and in addition we can do the second (while we have done the first) (Or maybe I am wrong!?)

    You might consider "As another option" as another option. – user3169 Jun 20 '15 at 17:27

'Alternatively' is a good choice or for something similar, just use 'or'.

You need to take off the too as that implies you are doing both actions.

    +1 though 'or else' might be slightly better at implying it's an either/or choice, not both. – gone fishin' again. Jun 20 '15 at 9:14

    There are also subtle differences depending upon if you are offering multiple ways of doing something, all equally good; or if you think that one option is your preferred choice but that there are other ways to achieve something. – Steve Ives Jun 22 '15 at 9:28
