Depends on what you mean by success....

I've a brick & mortar used furniture store in town of 30K.  My web site (olyfurnitureworks.com) gets about the same number of visits that the store does, which I consider a success.  I don't do online sales.  By the way, about 1/4 of my web traffic is between 11pm and 6am.

Important things for me are:
a. keep the content fresh and relevant
b. keep the pages fast loading
c. good meta tags - I monitor referring pages to see what key words folks are searching for
d. search engine submission
e. I include the URL on all my promotional materials (newspaper ads, business cards, window signs, etc.)
f. weekly monitoring of usage

KenAdney,

Thanks for confirming that it takes basic sales and marketing to supplement any online effort. I posed this question for a client who thought all it should take is putting up a site... and can't belive that you still have to promote a business!

spearman123,

I would have loved to review your site, but got a DNS error.

Enhanced Intelligibility Without Cable Clutter

Challenge: The ESA office in Brussels wanted a reliable audio conference system for video conferences. Their requirement - No participant must be left out from the conference and the audio quality must not be compromised.

Thanks, CR.  I built a web site for my wife's accountancy firm and although they've got some bells & whistles (streaming video of the staff talking, etc.), they don't do any promotion in print advertising, etc. and they only get 5 or 6 visits a day.

You're right, there's too many web sites out there already so if you want the traffic, you've got to promote it.
