Post to Social Media

Social media pages are places where you can share content and participate in social networking. Some of the top social media outlets are Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. You can interact with potential clients, and post content. With the help of Canva, you can create Facebook covers, Instagram posts, and Pinterest pins.

Include Hashtags in your posts

Hashtags are a great way to get more people to your website. Hashtags can be used on most social media platforms. Here is a link to a hashtag generator.

Start Email Marketing

Email marketing is a powerful way to drive traffic to your website. One great thing about email marketing is that you have a list of clients/customers who gave you permission to hop into their inboxes from time to time. The best way to thank them is by giving them useful tips and updates to help them solve their problems and challenges. Some popular email marketing platforms are Mailchimp, Convertkit, Aweber, Hubspot, and more.

Get active online

Get active online by consistently commenting on blogs and posts on other sites. When you create your profile for different sites and communities, make sure you include a link to your website.

Include a link to your website in your signature

If you send emails on a regular basis, it’s the perfect opportunity to include a link to your website. You can link to a landing page on your website or your homepage. Here is a free signature creator tool that I’ve used to create an email signature.
