Part 1 - The Basics
Realize that your website is a marketing tool for your products and/or services. You are investing advertising dollars in the maintenance of your site and should do whatever possible to get the most out of it. Having a website is of course less expensive than traditional marketing, but it can be as effective as traditional marketing if you use it wisely.
The first thing to do with your new site is to promote it broadly. You don't have to change your traditional marketing tactics necessarily, but you can use your new site as a "booster" to increase your exposure.
So the next question is: "How?"
Once you have a web address that is easy to relay to others, the rest is simple. You should make a habit of adding your website address to every piece of promotional material that goes out.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
Any and all media ads:
Answering Machine Message
Voice Mail Message
Company Note Pads
Above are the essentials to get started with, but with the Internet - there are even more places to go to market your site!
