As others have said, your biggest problem is your visibility on the net. Many folks think that it’s like the field of dreams…”build it and they will come”...but it doesn’t work that way. You need to build a presence on the net…I’m in the process of that for my wife’s wedding photography business right now.

First, make sure your content is quality content…Rich’s comments will go far in this regard.
Second, make sure your webmaster knows what he’s doing with regard to search engine ranking. Google loves text, rich with keywords but not overstuffed. More importantly, make sure your title is proper.
Third, in the short term you may try paying for the advertising on the right side of Google search. This gets you traffic until Google places you in the rankings.
4th, two weeks is not long enough for Google to even begin considering your site, give it some time to index.
5th, and last (but not least) , use your existing customer base to spread the word you’re online…use business cards, online only deals, etc.
