When it comes to website promotion – think in terms of the things that you can do within your site (pull marketing) as well as the things that you can do externally (push marketing).
Pull marketing can help to catch Google’s attention (i.e. via a keyword phrase used within a blog) and also generate word of mouth for your website, particularly if you are generous in sharing useful, helpful and relevant information.
There are many website promotion techniques that are free. For example, blogging, social media platforms and writing your own press releases.
Of course, you have to spend your valuable time doing your website promotion, so nothing in life is really free.
However, this is a worthwhile use of your time – as long as you measure your website promotion results and keep learning.
A key aspect of website promotion is writing. Do you love to write? If you answered yes to this question you are fortunate. Write regularly and at length within your website.
If you also take care of the technical aspects of SEO including new Title Tags for each page or post, as well as brand new content, your search engine rankings will improve.
