You have 7 pages on your site.

This means you have literally 7 in a trillion chance of being found organically.

You have a several options. You can work your physical and social networks asking as many people as possible to come to your site.

you can buy ads and pay people to come.

Or you can add a blog (recommended) and create more searchable content.

the more posts you have the more opportunities you have for people to find you and the more content you will have to pass around your networks.

this is very basic thinking. But does it make sense as a start?

@jycmba

My dad used to say, "Be really good at what you do and sooner or later somebody will pay you to do it."

I am old, so he's really old ... depression era generation.

First do good work = provide value.

It seems to me that the drift is towards restoring old values that our parents and grandparents lived by, no?

This surprises me than it probably surprises @Steve,

On average about one new person a day is joining the forum from ... Twitter!

Welcome from the land of 140 characters to the community of the long- and short-winded.

Glad to have you here.

@NetworkingAngel16 welcome to the forum, you might like to drop the sales pitches ... social media is about building relationships and not pushing out sales messages because all that does is make people turn off.

Especially when all you are doing is pitching someone else ...

Not sure if this forum software has the facility, some do ... but it would be great if links to websites could be removed if the person posting is new and hasn't made a certain number of posts ...

This would stop all of the post to get a link stuff.

It is possible to go back to the beginning of a thread @jycmba @Steve.

I try to stay on top of threads that are created and are spammy.

I was at the pool with my daughter doing important stuff. 8-)

Teaching her how to swim.

Sometimes people need a little education on how to 'swim in a forum, too.' Thanks for helping @NetworkingAngel16 out.
