Unleashing your phenomenal new website onto the world with Priority Pixels is your first step to a successful start in business. But getting you and your business online is just that – the first step. Your next step (and every step thereafter) is to make sure people can find you, and to increase your site traffic.
Strategic SEO, Pay Per Click advertising, and Google Adwords are just a few excellent ways to get your website out there for all to see, but they do come with a price tag. So what are your options if you’re on a budget? Fortunately, there are a whole bunch of sites around letting you promote your own website, and help establish your business and your online existence without costing you a penny.
While some might be quick and easy, others may need a little investment of your time. But each one will help get your business and brand filtering through the online world, making your website the one people click through to. So what are you waiting for?
Online Business Directories
Some you may have heard of, others maybe not, but all online business directories do a similar job. By registering with them, you get to create a business listing that includes your website address, contact details, and other information about your business.
Each directory holds your listing which will then appear when users search categories that include your services. Besides displaying your onsite content (which can usually include images) to users, your listing is also good for your overall SEO, helping you improve your Google ranking.

In today’s digital world, social media is a key tool in getting your business and brand to reach as many people as possible. None of us should be strangers to social media giants like Facebook and Twitter, but could you be using them more productively?
Other social channels might be less familiar to you, but will be no less effective in making your mark. Looking at how each of them works, and using them to your benefit will help you promote your business, brand, products, and services. And they’re another way to increase your SEO.

Social Content Curation
Not to be confused with social media, there are websites out there operating on the foundation of link submissions to your content, on your website. They work by finding relevant online web content, then recommending it to their registered users.
Submitting links to your home page, a product page, or a blog post, means that these content aggregators will spread your content to their users by linking it into their own descriptive text. Once a user clicks through, that means the site is driving more worldwide traffic to your website.
It might seem like a bit of a minefield trying to figure out which of these sites will best work for you. The only way to find out is to use them.
