Any web design company that does not offer website marketing as the primary aim of website development has clearly missed the point.

The internet is a weird and wonderful place. With the right skills, it can be harnessed to promote your brand, manage your reputation and engage directly with your customers.

Depending on the efforts you are making for the website marketing, publishing blogs, running advertisements etc., you will see increased contact requests and increased sales as a result of increased website traffic.
I remember using a computer as a child, I remember when the internet was for the privileged and Windows 98 was in its prime.
Connecting your computer to the modem entailed having to disconnect from your phone line after which you were forced to sit through that awful fax modem jingle for however long it would take.
