Three, two, one.......blast off - we are now live!!! Our new venture www.poshpetgifts.com is now live. Okay, um we are live! We are ready to take orders! Why aren't there any orders??? Is anyone listening???? Come ON people! Anyone.....?
Truth be told, yes we launched a new division of Jamie's Painting and Design - a personalized pet division. In a year or two we will launch another division to round out the company. And yes very excited, we are doing a big press push, and hoping to get some interest in the division. This is all true...but no one knows we exist, until now.
To get sales channels and get interest you need to a number of things with your website. I have had more companies claim their website is live and EXPECT that millions of visitors (and customers) will flood their site. How are they promoting the site? Who are they advertising to? Are they purchasing ads on line? Do they have reps? Did they buy words? Do they even own the name of their company?
You need a plan, and it is hard let me tell you. You need to generate a 'buzz' and you need to generate sales. To each is own, some hire sales reps, some purchase tons of advertisements, some go to trade shows, some buy words on google or yahoo - but you need to do something.
Anyone can put up a website, but not everyone can create a whole business around it.
