So you have a product that you want to market, and now you want
to start promoting it through your own web page.
You have all the information your audience might need, so all
you have to do is put it on the page, right?
Well, you probably also want to find some ways to make sure your
web site stands out from all the millions of others that are out
there. Just as with any other type of advertising, you want your
web site to be easy to access (in terms of finding it), easy to
process (in terms of understanding it), and easy to respond to
(in terms of sales or queries). In order to achieve these basic
goals, here are some tips:
1. Try to use a simple, easy to remember domain name.
It's better to have a domain name that is connected to you and
your business than to be at the whim of one of those free
services that may or may not be there next month.
It is especially important to have a good, simple domain name if
you use marketing strategies that require the audience to recall
the name of your site at a later time, such as newspapers,
radio, or television. Obviously, it is much easier to remember

2. Consider using a professional service to help construct your
website. The number of web developers and designers has
increased dramatically over the past few years, and help can
usually be found at a reasonable cost.
The benefits of having a professional, well-constructed web page
are innumerable, but one of the most important is that it
creates a favorable first impression that will motivate your
audience to read on. Internet audiences are a notoriously fickle
lot -- if there is something about your web page that they don't
like in the first 5 seconds, they will often go on to their next
choice without waiting to see what it is that you have to offer.
3. Make it as easy as possible for your customers and potential
customers to contact you. If your audience becomes interested in
your product, but doesn't know how to contact you to order or to
get additional information, then your web page has accomplished
nothing -- except maybe create sales for one of your competitors!
It is a good idea to have an email account that is associated
with your website and is available to your customers through
your website. Remember that communication is power, and if you
can't communicate easily with your customers, you are probably
Web pages are a very effective way to market your business.
However, it is important to understand that there are LOT of
other people who have realized this, so there is a tremendous
struggle to capture your potential audience's attention.
However, with just a little bit of forethought, you can make a
web page that stands out and rises above the competition!
