At Blue Ridge Creative Marketing, we know that a successful website launch is not just about the design and functionality but also about how you promote it to reach your audience effectively. Here are some essential steps to take when launching a new website and how to promote it for maximum impact.

1. Announce Your Launch

Email Marketing: Send an email to your existing subscribers announcing your new website. Highlight the new features, improved user experience, and any special offers related to the launch.

Social Media: Utilize all your social media channels to announce the launch. Create engaging posts with visuals or videos showcasing your new site and its benefits. At Blue Ridge, we can provide you with social media graphics and captions to post when you launch on a weekly basis to create a buzz.

Press Release: Consider writing a press release and distributing it to relevant media outlets. This can help you reach a broader audience and get some buzz around your new site.

Business Listings: Make sure you add your new website URL to Google My Business, Yelp, Facebook, LinkedIn, Psychology Today, or wherever else you have a profile.

2. Engage Your Audience

Interactive Elements: Add interactive elements like polls, quizzes, or surveys to engage your audience and get their feedback on your new site.
