How to Promote Your New Website: Why Marketing is Essential


How to Promote Your New Website with Saltd Studio

Okay so your site is designed and built and you LOVE it. But now what? Let’s dive into how to promote your new website moving forward (and why it’s important to do so).

Congratulations on launching your website – what a milestone! This project is more than just a checkmark on your business owner’s to-do list; it’s a testament to your vision and hard work. However, now comes the crucial part: ensuring your website doesn’t just exist, but thrives. After all, a website is far from a “set it and forget it” business asset.

A website isn’t a magic bullet for instant success. It requires active promotion to reach its full potential. In this blog, we’ll explore why marketing a site is vital and how to promote your new website with effective marketing strategies to ensure your hard work (and investment) pays off.

Why Market Your New Website?

Marketing your new website is not just about getting eyeballs; it’s about crafting a digital presence that resonates with your audience. Without effective marketing, your website risks being a well-kept secret in the vast expanse of the internet. By actively promoting it, you can:

  1. Expand Your Reach: Reach your target audience and build brand awareness with new, potential, and current clients. Many dream customers either say yes or write off a business just because of website quality. So treat your site as a new member of your team!
  2. Build Your Brand: Establish your brand’s identity and credibility by consistently delivering value through your website content and interactions. This builds trust and fosters long-term customer relationships.
  3. Drive Conversions: Ultimately, marketing drives business outcomes. Whether it’s generating leads, making sales, or fostering engagement, effective promotion turns visitors into happy-to-pay customers.

How to Promote Your New Website

Now that we understand why it’s crucial, let’s explore some effective strategies to promote your new website:

  1. Optimize for Search Engines (SEO): Enhance your website’s visibility on search engines like Google by optimizing keywords, meta descriptions, and content structure. Need help? We can recommend top-notch SEO experts.
  2. Harness the Power of Social Media: Engage with your audience on platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn. Share valuable content, interact with followers, and drive traffic back to your website.
  3. Master Email Marketing: Build an email list and nurture your audience with informative newsletters, special promotions, and updates. Email remains a powerful tool for driving conversions, especially because you can reach people immediately and directly, without having to rely on outside platforms (like social media).
  4. Invest in Paid Advertising: Utilize targeted ads on social media or search engines to amplify your reach and attract qualified leads. Pro tip: Measure performance with analytics to optimize your campaigns.
  5. Build Backlinks: Foster credibility and improve SEO by securing backlinks from reputable sites. Collaborate on guest posts, participate in interviews, or share insights on industry forums.

By implementing a comprehensive marketing strategy – blending SEO, social media engagement, email campaigns, paid advertising, full-of-flair brand design, a high-quality (and functional) website, and strategic partnerships – you not only increase visibility but also build a strong foundation for sustained growth. When you begin to see your marketing efforts as a connected web that propels your business forward (as opposed to each their own separate machine), your business will begin to soar.

Remember, your website is more than just an online presence; it’s a gateway to connect with your audience, showcase your expertise, and drive business results. It’s essentially a new employee that will work for you 24/7. Embrace the power of marketing, and watch your website flourish into a thriving digital asset. Here’s to your success!
