How about some sticky content and value additions to make people keep coming to your site? An online contest, discounts on certain occasions, basic stuff like that. If people like the site they'll spread the word around... you'll get more traffic that should hopefully translate into more business...
SEO is not all that simple. And most web developers forget about the traditional advertising methods to promote the site. Advertise in local mags, put up banners, include your web address in your letterhead, visiting cards, etc...
IMHO .. ideas are a dime a dozen. Implemenation is the tough work.
I have a good collegue who goes further .. he calls the idea people "the useless dreamers." The implementars the "valuable doers".
Also like this quote says ..
"Everyone who has ever taken a shower has had an idea. It's the person who gets out of the shower, dries off, and does something about it that makes a difference." *Nolan Bushnell
I love this, I think it's right on. . . I work in biotech, with a lot of people whom I refer to as "brilliant ideas people," which you perhaps more aptly called "the useless dreamers." I don't have many big, brilliant ideas, but I'm the "implementer" in my group. I've always harbored this secret feeling of satisfaction because I'm the one who actually gives life to the ideas. Implementation may not be "glamorous," but it's very satisfying in its own right.

7/ 10 small sites are better than one big one, but you still must have the one big one.
i've just registered today as i found this forum so interesting starting from the 15 guidelines by micmol (thank you), and #7 really gets my attention most ... my website is just very small, and i don't even have any big one... what do you think ?
i have my own website ( www.mycl-site.com ) and it is very simple.. whoever likes to make money online is invited to check it out.... also, by joining the program, you can advertise your sites with it so that others can view your site and bring traffics.... i advertise my programs with it and it really works out.... that's the best traffic-exchange so far, and i've been their member for almost one year... it is highly recommended
