03. Avoid Use Of Templates

Free website design templates do not make a serious business website. The templates are usually for the beginners. Create a website design of your own to lend credibility to your online business. 

You should also avoid paid templates as they too are available to many others. You do not have to spend a lot of money on creating an awesome site. Instead, a simple and useful website also is good enough to gain your customers’ attention.

04. Beat The Competition

Your aim in creating a website with useful content should be to beat the competition. Take extra measures to be ahead of your competitors in order to grab a market share.

Learn from your competitors’ websites and see what worked for them. Know what different should you do to draw your customer’s attention from the competitors to your site.

It is advisable to hire an expert SEO to know about who is linking to their websites and what other tricks they use. 

If your small business cannot afford services of an expensive designer, you can use beautiful templates for free to create web designs on your own as per your choice of colors, typeface, and other requirements.


Wouldn’t it be incredible if your webpage or website came at the top of prospects’ search results regardless of what they were searching for?

However, that’s impossible. Some SEO companies will promise guaranteed results to make it to the top of search engines’ search results but fail to deliver.

SEO is more of science as it is an art. You have to understand its dynamics before you embark on investing.

You may not have the time, tips, and resources needed to invest in proper digital and social media marketing. That’s why we offer the most affordable SEO guide and ideas to help you take your online advertising to the next level.

05. Promote Your Website

Once you have launched your website, it will not yield results automatically. So, promote your website. Use social media and other means to spread word about the website.

Make good use of Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and other social platforms to ensure the site’s visibility. Comment on other blog posts relevant to your niche and actively participate in forums to discuss an issue related to your business. These simple points will yield results shortly.

social media

Do not forget the importance of e-mail marketing and RSS subscribers in promotion of your website. Get email addresses and have people subscribe to your RSS feed. This strategy will help you promote your website amongst thousands of subscribers in years to come.

06. Site Load Speed

Visitors do not wait for a long time before a website finally loads. They simply migrate to other sites. So, make sure that your website does not take more than few seconds to load.


To ensure speedy loading of your site, make sure that it has few graphics and images. You should use a good server and make your page cacheable.
