Default "Hi" From a New Member

My website is relatively new (under a year) and I'm having trouble getting the word out that I'm here. My site did win the Golden Web Award last spring, but no traffic came from it. I have linked to several other sites but am having trouble with my web host. I have to send several emails and finally call them on the phone to get anything done. I would love to be able to link to other sites by myself, but do not have the knowledge. You can view my site at nefersrareofferings.com. Nefers is an outlet for artisans of unusual, one-of-a-kind, handmade fine crafts.

Mass e-mails work well, do you focus on retail or business to business sales?

Welcome Former Bluebell!

You definitely need to dump your web host or at least (as you mentioned) learn to do things yourself so you don't have to rely on them.

Learning basic HTML is not difficult and here is a suggested resource to help you get started:

One way to get the word out is to write helpful articles (not sales pitches) that relate to your service or products for article directories.

People who need free articles for their web sites go to these directories to get free articles. You benefit because your name and website address are listed at the end of the story.

If you don't like to write, do a Q & A (Question and Answer) with an expert on a related subject.

You can find article directories on Google.
