Before you start drawing traffic towards your website, you need to ensure that you have all your ducks in a row and prepare your website to support a successful campaign. 

Here are a few ways in which you can do this:

Having a website where it is easy for customers to find what they are searching for helps build trust and confidence in your campaign.

This will allow you to assess what's working for your company and what's not. Remember, this is about encouraging traffic to your website, so if your campaign is successful, you can do it again.
