If you need to get the word out about your website, there are many ways to go about it. You could tell people when you meet them, hand out cards and flyers, send emails to your contacts, publish the address on a social network, or advertise on traditional media such as radio and TV.
Letting your contacts know is a good thing to do, only they probably already know about your website and have visited before. Publishing your website to strangers is also great, although its not always a highly targeted exercise - you don't know for sure that you're reaching people who are interested in your products or services.
One sure way of knowing that people are interested in what you have to offer is by letting, or encouraging them to come to you. And for a website, one of the best ways is to be found on a search engine.
Search engine listings are free (in the case of the major ones, at least); they each have their own way of working based on your website content, the number of people who link to you and the perceived relevance of what you've written compared with what somebody searched for. When someone finds you on a search engine and clicks the link to your site, this is known as an 'organic' visit. You have some limited control over how (or where) you're represented on a search engine, but ultimately, its out of your hands.
With Pay Per Click (PPC), you can show ads to people who are searching for products and services like yours, right at the moment they're searching for it, and you only pay when someone clicks the ad and visits your site.
Clicks can cost from as little as just 10 or 20p each and so not only is PPC a highly targeted form of advertising, its also one of the most cost effective. You can spend as much or as little as you want on a PPC campaign, depending on the size of your business and your budget.
