Website Promotion Promises – Are They Real?

If you’ve ever read these offers closely, you will quickly become suspicious

Social Media on Ulitzer

If you have a website and your email is listed on the Internet, you’ve probably received unsolicited offers for increasing your website’s ranking on the Internet. Over the last few years, these offers seem to multiple like a virtual plague. I myself receive so many of these emails, they are perpetually trapped in my spam filter.

If you’ve ever read these offers closely, you will quickly become suspicious. The emails come from gmail accounts without phone numbers or website addresses. They offer promises of first page ranking on Google and website traffic increases beyond your wildest expectations. And all of this is yours for little money and within record time.

Take note my friends, nothing of value comes easy. Your Grandmother was right. Positive results typically come from hard work. And so is the case with website promotion. Can a website refresh and an Internet marketing campaign make a difference? Yes, absolutely. But this difference is a result of a qualified Internet marketing consultant who can a implement proven Internet marketing campaign to work for your company. The consultant should have a real website with a real domain (www.something.com) and be ranked high on Google for keywords associated for their own website.

The bottom line is this – if an Internet marketing consultant cannot promote their own website effectively, they will not be able to do a solid job of promoting your website. If you can find them quickly on Google, then they are most likely a real, live, oxygen breathing consultant who can produce results. If you cannot find them on Google, keep looking for someone else.
