How to Promote Your Website

Susan Dillicar - Monday, August 24, 2009

Many people mistakenly believe that once they have created a website, it will automatically start attracting customers.  This is simply not true.  Websites are like businesses in the real world - in order for people to visit it, they first need to know that it exists and secondly, where to find it.

There are two ways to get the word out about your website business.  The first is through general marketing tactics and the second is through the use of internet marketing.

General Marketing

You need to include your website address on all your standard marketing material.  These tactics will often include:

  • Business Cards
  • Letterheads
  • Complement Slips
  • Advertisements
  • Invoices
  • Quotes
  • Receipts
  • Shopfront
  • Company Vehicles

Internet Marketing

In addition to standard marketing technique, you should employ internet marketing.  Today, potential customers often jump on the computer to search for a product or service that they are after.  By utilising internet marketing properly, you can make it likely that it is your business that comes up in the search engine machine.

Search Engine Optimisation involves optimising your Web site so that it will appear at the top or at least on the first page of the Search Engine Results for words and phrases relevant to your business. Search Engines are the main source of visitors for nearly every site on the web. If your site can't be found in major Search Engines then you are missing out on an opportunity for attracting numerous visitors to your site.

If you hired a web designer to create your website, talk to them about what they are doing about your SEO (search engine optimisation).  If they are only doing the basics, then it is up to you to hire a SEO specialist or to master the skill yourself.  There are many articles on the internet on SEO if you should choose to undertake the task yourself.

certainly like your web site but yyou have to test the spelling on quite a few
of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I find itt very
troublesome to inform the rreality on the other
hand I'll definitely come again again.
