Tools integrated into your website to help promote your site
Your website includes tools to help you market to your client-base using email. Email marketing is a great way to stay top-of-mind with your clients and is a proven strategy to help turn a one-time customer into a repeat customer.
You can segment your client-base to better target your messaging by creating multiple mailing lists. You can send out:
- Products updates
- Purchase follow-ups
Blogging is a terrific way for you to post a lot of timely and interesting content to your website. Visitors can comment
on your posts which are also displayed on your website (after being approved by you). Creating a blog that resonates with your audience can help you accumulate a high
volume of traffic that returns to your site to read and comment on your blog.
Promote and share ideas/products/services on your website by connecting your Twitter account to your website. You can Tweet (send text-based messages) right from your website and your message will automatically be posted to the Twitter community.
Your website comes with a sitemap. You can submit this sitemap to Google Webmaster Central. Google uses your sitemap to learn about the structure of your site and to increase the coverage of your webpages.
Display RSS Feeds from websites that have related content to your business or industry. In combination with Blogs
and Message Boards, RSS feeds help to make your site a go-to website for all the latest news and ideas in your industry. You can build your website into a hub of information for your clients. This will benefit your site by increasing the amount of users to your site and also increasing the amount of time clients spend on your site.

Tell A Friend
Your website includes a link on your homepage that makes it easy for your visitors to recommend your website to a friend. Like other social media tools, this link will help increase the exposure of your website and bring more visits
to your website.
Del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site. It is another means for people to find your website. Store your bookmarks online (be sure to include your website), tag them, and share them. Each time your site is bookmarked, people will tag it with words that describe your site. When someone searches on Del.icio.us for one of these tags, your site will come up. Del.icio.us ranks a result based on how many people have bookmarked it. Many people use Del.icio.us as a means to retrieve information, much like a search engine. You can link directly to Del.icio.us from your website to encourage your visitors to bookmark, tag, and share your website. The more information you add to your website
(i.e. in a Blog) the more people will bookmark and tag your site.
Create a Facebook group for your business and invite all your friends on Facebook® to join your group. The more friends join your group, the more your group will get exposed to their friend list and the entire Facebook community. Update your Facebook® group with information relevant to your community (announcements, launches, staff updates, news). Link to your Facebook® group off of your website.
