tutorials on Web site Promotion
|"If you build it, they
will come." Most webmasters learn the hard way that the former statement can't be
further from the truth, especially online. Companies lured by the "great reach"
of the internet are often dissapointed after getting online. They think that simply being
being on the WWW means this precense will somehow, by the "mysterious" power of
the internet, be known by everyone else that's wired. The analagy I like to use when
describing the WWW is the telephone. Websites on the WWW are like telephone numbers- yes,
each and every one of them is accessible to potentially hundreds of millions of people,
but unless I explictly tell you my phone number, I can wait until my great grandson is
born, and you still won't call me. That's exactly how the WWW works. Just because you have
a great site, and perhaps even your own domain, if you can't find ways to promote and tell
people about it, they will never know your address, and subsequently, will never visit
your site. It's that simple.
This is a pesonal site I created to help webmasters currently in "traffic draught" understand more about ways to effectively promote and advertise their precense online. Hopefully, after reading it, you'll gain a better understanding of how traffic around the web flows, and how to direct some of that to your site. It contains a fine collection of articles and tutorials on web site promotion, many of which are contributed by online marketing gurus. I hope you'll enjoy reading them, and look for many more articles to be added constantly.
