Putting In The Basics On Your Website ===================================== With over 200 million webpages and growing you need to not only be aggressive in your promotional actions, but you also have to have your basics in. What are the basic promotional actions for a website? The basics are: - submissions to: search engines, directories, what's new announcements, classifieds, hot/cool sites - newsgroups postings - reciprocal linking Don't I just need to go into some search engines? No, you need to put the basic promotional actions in on your website. For example, if you were to start a new business in the real world, you usually do the following promotional actions: - get free listings in the yellow pages - passout flyers - network in your local community Then, once you have made some sales you would put some money towards advertising, display ads, direct mail etc. You would continue to do these actions and watch your business expand. =================================================== !!! BOOST YOUR WEBSITE TRAFFIC TO AMAZING LEVELS !!! Visit GetHits, the number one source for website submission! To submit your site to up to 500 search engines and directories, go to this URL: http://www.addme.com/gethits <- click here =================================================== When you go online with a website, it is similar to starting a new business (even if you have an existing business off-line). Going into search engines/directories is similar to obtaining free listings in the yellow pages, newsgroup postings are similar to passing out flyers, reciprocal linking is similar to networking in your local community. Then once you have made some sales, you would put some money towards advertising, banners ads, direct email etc. You would continue to do these actions and watch as your website expand. When you start a new business and you obtain a free listing in The Yellow Pages, do you solely rely on that advertising to bring you new prospects? If your answer is no, then why would you solely rely on the search engines to bring traffic to your site? It's the same thing. So to recap the basics are: - submissions to search engine/directories, classifieds, what's new, hot/cool site awards - newsgroups - reciprocal linking Make the basics above into a checklist and review your website to see if these basics are implemented. If they are not in, go ahead and get them in. As you implement each of the basics, monitor your web statistics to see how much your web traffic has increased. Once your basics are in, you will notice your web traffic increase and then level off at the top, At that point you should start with banner advertising and direct emailing to continue to increase your traffic.
