You have a website and yet nothing special is happening with it? Isn’t that what you imagined and it doesn’t seem to help you in the development of your business? Do you conclude that it was not a good investment and still ignore the site?
First of all you have to think that the internet does not start with your website. There are over 1.2 billion websites right now. Even though many of them are not active, the number remains impressive.
You didn’t do anything wrong when you made a website. Potential customers are present online and look for information, products and services that you have on your website. The problem is that you stopped here and didn’t take the next step: promoting the website. And promotion means not only advertising but also a careful analysis of your potential customers and the products or services you offer.
