Marketing Your Website
by: Matt Kuren

Your new website is up and running, it's time to inform the purchasing public. Marketing a web-based business is just as important as marketing a brick-and-mortar business. Even though a marketing plan is probably one of the most important elements of successful business, it is usually the least thought of aspect of any new business. Formulate a strategic marketing plan. A properly instituted marketing plan gives your website an acceptance level far above the average website by providing a rational direction for your marketing activities.

Creating a good marketing plan is the best thing that you can do to help assure a new web based business's growth. Your marketing plan should be your guide on which you base your marketing decisions and it will help to ensure that everyone involved in marketing your website works toward the same goals. Optimally, a marketing plan and it's budget should cover promotion and advertising for 6-12 months.

Don't forget to include in your plan budget a sizable allotment for market research. What you know about your target market and the information gleaned from marketing research will give you the basis for your marketing strategy. Research is the only way you will know what is necessary to design your marketing plan to reach the 25-30% of your website customers that are not brought to your site by search engines and directories. The plan should lay the groundwork for campaigns that will encourage customers to place an order, or to take some kind of action, that will allow you to respond.

When drawing up your marketing plan, think about where you want your business to be in three years and how you plan to get there. Marketing your web-based business is a never-ending task. Once you have your information and your marketing plan in place, you must continuously revisit, revise, refine and revamp it to accommodate changes in your marketplace.

With an internet marketing plan in place you have a consider strategy to outmaneuver your competition by capitalizing on their weakness and emphasize your web-based business's strengths. By increasing market awareness of the offerings of your website, you acquire new customers.
