So you have your website ready. All your systems are in place, your content, landing pages and squeeze pages, payment gateways, delivery systems and newsletters lined up….You’re primed. You’re ready to go.
And then what?
With billions of webpages on the internet, you have to do something to get noticed. The first and most popular method is search engine optimization.

These techniques are so subtle, so easy and look so small in the bigger picture that many feel they’re not worth doing simply because they seem so insignificant.
