The new version of my business website is about to release in coming weeks which mainly includes UI improvement and support for some advance features. Within that time period, I don’t want to contact bloggers, reviewers or participating in other social and community engagement activities until the improved website version goes public.
So in the meanwhile, what internet marketing and promotional techniques we can follow to keep the visitors traffic flowing?
I have basic plan ready for it but want to seek opinions from other SEO and internet marketing geeks to compare it with my plan and making sure that I have not missed any promotional techniques.
SEO is a big topic on its own and something that should be done on ongoing basis, regardless of what phase your business/product is in. Seeing results take time, so you can't really plan on getting SEO changes out in time for when you need/want traffic.

This is not all you could do, but SEM and email marketing are more targeted ways to reach your customers without increasing general awareness for your product in any unpredictable way.
