Why worry about advertising?
Well, you need to get people to your site. And once they are there, you probably want them to buy your products or services. Rather than just relying on word-of-mouth, if you really want to fast-track your customer base and become known, advertising can be a brilliant way to do so.
Displaying images of your products and links to your site on other webpages is a fantastic way to promote your website and get your name out there. It also assists with directing customers to your own webpage where they can view your products and buy them or tell their friends.
Having ‘share’ or ‘like’ links also allow customers to share and promote you on various social media platforms.
Advertising needs to be tailored to the market demographic you are targeting. If you are selling high-end designer handbags then advertise with a corresponding website or blog which targets the same or a similar demographic.
