Quick Tips for Promoting Your Website

Promoting your website is the first and also the most important step post-launch. Your website is the way you will be creating income, promoting your message(s) and building your brand online.

Here are three quick and easy tips to promote your website: search engine submission, social network marketing, and creating articles.

Search engine submission is the first tip to promote your website. This part is one of the most crucial steps for any newly launched website. Once your website is live, you'll want to be sure to submit it to the various online search engines – or make sure your web design vendor is doing this for you!

The next tip to promote your website is to use the various social networking sites to build and maintain relationships with your friends list. This can be a great way to promote your site, but you'll need to be aware of a few social networking no-no's first.

The main “no-no’s” are as follows:

  • Do not blatantly try to sell your products to people on your friends list, as this is considered rude. Plus, people like to buy and absolutely hate being sold.
  • The second no-no is to spam; nobody likes a spammer. This could ruin your efforts on trying to build relationships, and it could even ruin your entire business. Don't spam.

The last tip to promote your website is to write articles. Now, you might be asking, "how in the heck could articles help my website?" Well first of all, writing articles can help you make a name for yourself online, and also helps to generate lots of quality traffic to your site. All you really need to do is pick a topic that you know about, write about it, and then submit it to article directory sites and local/regional/trade publications.  Share your knowledge on your topic of choice with the world! This will help you gain credibility as an expert in your field.

In summary, promoting your website is crucial in your online endeavors. Make sure you submit your website to search engines, take use of the various social networking sites, and create quality articles. Following these three tips can help increase the number of visitors and potential customers to your site.
