Are there any equally good avenues for website exposure other than social media sites.....I am not cut out for them, not very extrovert , "mum always said not to talk to strangers" well it kinda stuck. I don't know anyone that belongs to any of these sites. Would have no friends or contacts on such places. Joined one once as my daughter wanted "me!" to figure out how it worked, within 12 hours was inundated with people requesting to be my "friend" ,none possibly with the exception of one really weird guy had even read what I had posted, they just wanted a link to their little bit of the site added to mine, I know that's the point but thought it was also that the people you asked to become your friend had shared interests things in common. So I am really put off social media sites now.
Apart from that my website is very new I am concentrating on many things particularly some of the pages that have lots of images on I made the mistake of using an old very simple wysiwyg website builder that I employed years ago because it was so basic ,as a way a friend of mine who's memory centers were affected by a stroke,could handle his own web page, it was easy for him to learn and make changes to his pages himself.Never thought before I used it to see if the html it created was good or current. When I ran a page through WC3 validator it turned up many errors , like to use pictorial editor for image pages so found the latest version of the old one converted main page and checked it in validator only showed one error,and that one is not one I can fix as it really doesn't exist claims header tag isn't closed but it is.
Anyway I'm waffling (its a personal flaw) with all my pages to redo , a blog to keep up, articles and press releases to write ,2 kids, a husband ,a dog a cat , a house and all the rest of life, where an I going to find the time for social media sites. My ultimate goal is to make sales not friends, wouldn't my time be better employed in any of the other activities ,or is it your honest opinion that I should give up sleeping and make the time.
percentage wise how much harder will it be to promote my site and get sales not just visitors if I don't
