Perhaps you can add a section specifically dedicated to letting your visitor know important updates to your products, your company, or your website in general. Providing a fresh content allows your site to “feel” current. Nobody likes to go to an outdated site that feels abandoned. If you don’t have the time, you might consider hiring a writer who can update your site a couple of times a month with an article related to your products or services.

You can also participate in forums related to your specific niche. In addition, you call also submit press releases every week.
