If you can not write articles on your own, you can use the services of professional writers for this purpose. You should coordinate with them and ensure that they contain the right stuff and convey the theme and substance of your business very well.

b. You can build a good customer list and use email marketing for improving the popularity of your website. You should keep on adding more customers to this list. The longer your list is, the more effective and successful your email marketing strategy will be.

      Another suggestion is to post on classified ads websites if you have a product and service you want to promote. Keep in mind to post it on the appropriate category.
