You have created a web page, Now what? ====================================== Tip 1 Your Audience Cater to your audience. You know your audience best. Create a special introduction page on your site which sets the mood for your site. Tip 2 Bookmarks Remind visitors to Bookmark, As obvious as that seems, it can not be emphasized enough. It is becoming more and more established that it takes between 4-5 visits to a web site before a purchase is made. So remind visitors in big bold letters to bookmark your site. Tip 3 Up-date your site regularly If your visitors come back a few times and see that nothing has changed, the relationship you are trying to establish is likely to come to an end. It is important to add fresh content, up-date time sensitive information and offer something "new" for your visitors when they do return. ==================================================== !!! SUBMIT YOUR SITE TO UP TO 500 SEARCH ENGINES !!! 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! ==================================================== Tip 4 Feature Stories Consider adding feature stories which fit in with the theme(s) of your site. Consider offering free ad space for payment of a good story. Tip 5 Grammar You MUST use a spell checker on every page in your site. One of the things that will chase a visitor away fast is finding mis-spelled words. It shows a lack of professionalism. Tip 6 Stay informed There are some outstanding e-mail lists and newsletters to subscribe to that are not only great forums for discussion on doing business on the internet, but also provide useful advice on promoting your web site. Keep up with these, and you will be an expert before you know it. Tip 7 Search Engines You can spend hours or days submitting your site to all the search engines, or use a submission service. Most of them let you submit to a few engines and then charge you to submit to all the heavy hitters. Search engines are only one small way to advertise your site and should not be relied on completely. Tip 8 Banner Advertising Now here is another inexpensive way to advertise you site. If you use a banner exchange program, like SmartClicks, or LinkExchange you can get your site seen by a larger audience. Tip 9 Newsletter Start a newsletter and ask people to sign up for it from your site. It will take some time, but if the content is good you will get more subscriptions from referrals. You can also get opt-In lists from reputable sites, that will allow you to start sending the newsletter out in bulk. But remember this will cost you a certain amount per name. Tip 10 Affiliates Affiliate programs are another way to get your site seen. There are many programs, (Amazon.com) (eToys.com) (BarnesandNoble.com), etc. You will have to search around for the one that will give you the best exposure. Some will pay you when someone clicks on their banner and most, if they purchase you will get a commission from the sale.
