If you have a website, your next step is promoting it. Without promotion, your chances of achieving your online goals are diminished.
It goes without saying that websites need visitors in order to gain new customers and to achieve the goals for which they were built. Unfortunately, the fact that a website exists does not guarantee that people will find it. That's where promotion enters the picture.
There are many ways to promote websites on the Internet. You can pay for banners or other advertisements on various websites. You can pay the search engines directly for ad placements, although the truth is that you'll be bidding against competitors to determine just how much you'll pay. And you can, of course, do all the offline promotions that businesses did before the advent of the Web and still do — these are all good ideas.
That said, millions of people access websites via search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. But, aside from paying the search engines, websites generally don't automatically show up at the top of search engines simply by virtue of existing — they must be built specifically in order to have a chance of achieving those positions.
Unfortunately, how that is done is not a part of normal web design services — and most new website owners are not aware of this fact.
