You now have a website and want to get the word out about it. How do you go about letting the world know your website is up and you’re open for business.
Here are six effective ways to promote your website for free.
Start reaching out to your customers and potential customers with a newsletter. Ask people to subscribe to your newsletter on your website.
Keep your newsletter content engaging. Used call-to-actions that encourage your readers to click.
When considering how to promote your website, a good practice is to create a blog. A blog will increase your site’s rank on search engines. Blogging makes it easier for people to find your site and discover your business. On top of that, it helps you establish yourself as an expert in your industry.
Writing a blog forces you to research your industry and in turn, expands your knowledge and professional skills.
Collaborate with another blogger in your industry and share one of your blogs on their site. This allows you to expand your reach to their audience and perhaps even gain new clients. Include a link to your website in the ‘About’ section of your blog so you get additional traffic to your website.
In your ‘About’ section on each social media channel, include a link to your website. If someone checking out your social media site wants to know more, they will visit your website.
Social media marketing is important for engaging followers. Posting compelling content increases the chances that your followers will share it. This is free promotion for your website.
