Q: How do I get clients to go to my site and contact me?
A: Hi Alberta–
It's all about attracting traffic to your site. However, before you begin to generate traffic, you need to be prepared for the traffic.
By this I mean that you need a primary call to action on your site. This call to action should be an invitation to get the visitors on your email marketing list. The most effective way to do this is by having a client attraction device, or a free giveaway on your site.
Here's an article where I've written more about the call to action on your site, Dramatically Increase Your Conversions with a Clear Call to Action.
Once they have signed up for your list, then you need a keep-in-touch strategy, like an ezine or a blog. This lets you remain top-of-mind as the solution to their problem.
Here's an article I've written about how to create an effective ezine, Ezine Marketing: 3 Essential Components Required to Make More Sales From Your Email Newsletter and one called How to Create Your First Blog.
Once those are in place, then you need to begin to drive traffic to your site. My favorite way of doing this is via article marketing, where I write one article with a compelling offer in my resource box (author's bio) and have distributed throughout the Internet.
Here's another article I've written about article marketing, How to Write Articles That Will Increase Traffic to Your Website.
Once you've begun to write articles,then you need to begin to repurpose your article to continue to drive traffic to your site:
