So you have just launched your new site. That’s really exciting!! Now you might be keen to start selling your services or products, right? That’s a great idea but I have a question. How are people going to find your newly launched website? Have you done something for that? Launching a site is just the first step. After launching your site, you just can’t sit idle thinking people will somehow find your site. You need to work hard to get your site noticed as well as get people to your site.
In this blog, I have listed a few things that you should do immediately after launching your site to get your site noticed as well as bring traffic to your website:
Don’t forget to promote your newly launched website on social media
Social media is a wonderful way to promote your newly launched website as well as get people to visit. Around 90 percent of marketers claim that their social marketing efforts have increased exposure for their business, as well as 75 percent say they have increased traffic.
Setting up a company page on social media platforms is very easy. After setting up a business page, you can create posts with links to your website. You can also use social media platforms to show images as well as videos of your services or products as well as offer discounts.
Social media will not only help you improve your visibility as well as bring traffic to your newly launched website but will also help you build better relationship with potential customers.
You can try guest blogging
Guest blogging is a well-established method to push organic rankings. It can connect you with the sites that have an already established audience base. You can take Forbes as an example. The followers of Forbes are in millions as well as has a strong readers base. So, if your blog gets featured there, you will be able to leverage the wide visibility of the platform.
Apart from that, you can gain direct traffic from the valuable & authoritative links shared in the featured content. Just make sure that the links are useful & valuable to the users, or else, you may get a good traffic but with insane bounce back rate.
You can use paid ads
Using paid ads is particularly very good for the newly launched websites who have just started the game as well as does not have much of the organic traffic.
Paid ads can bring fast & profitable traffic if you have the budget for decent campaigns. Although the ROI is short lived, it can gain the best traffic volume in a very short time.
Have a look at some good options for fast paid traffic:
- Facebook ads
- Twitter ads
- LinkedIn ads
- StumbleUpon ads

If I was asked to select any two from these, I would definitely go for Facebook Ads & Google Adwords as these 2 platforms are quite efficient in terms of traffic generation.
