Have you considered guest blogging? If you find a blog related to your niche that has lots of activity and you supply a high quality, information article, you will drive a lot of targeted traffic to your site.

Try posting original, good quality articles on blog sites. Submit your links to social bookmarking sites and directories. Try social media marketing by interacting with your prospects on FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.

You can increase the traffic by guest blogging. It helps to increase the relevant traffic. And also social media websites are one of the good source of traffic.

I have always seen good results from forum posting, however, one of my industries is two way radios and I find it very hard to find any good forums in this industry

Directory listings are something I always opt in for, but you require a budget for that

Quick List-
1). Facebook

3). Forums (add link in your signature) (Always been a fast working, favorite of mine BUT you have to particpate in a relevant way).
4). Emails (Add link in your signature)
5). Fiverr (it isn't free, but it's a site where you can hire someone to do something for 5 bucks).
6). About Me page on eBay
7). Submit site to product related sites. For example when I started pocketknivesblog.com I did a search for submit knife site and found a couple sites realted to knives that allowed me to list my site.
8). YouTube (that can be very quick).
9). Blogs - take too long IMHO.
10). Write an ebook and give it away to website visitors!
I like that eBay one - never thought of that. I used the ebook one through amazon and had a link through my site to Amazon - it was pretty good as well.

Doing all the Social Media activity like Facebook post, Twitter twitting, Linkedin Share, Youtube video sharing, Pinterest image pining etc. All this activity give you lots of traffic to your site.

If you have online shopping site than Submit your site at various product listing site and submit your product at various affiliate marketing site. From that you get lots of traffic to your site and also get revenue from that.

Hola

The only point I would like to raise about fiverr on this above list is to be very careful, sounds great to get something for $5, however, if we are talking quality content then make sure that it really is unique and not just copied text which has been changed slightly - you could end up in deeper waters if you don't check the quality of the work received from anything Fiverr

Quick wins come from PPC (adwords).

To build your website more organically, you need social and SEO. If you have limited time, I would not engage in a social strategy. Too many times companies start a social page and then never engage after the initial set up. Thus, their social activity produces zero results.

Social also helps generate referral traffic and could upsell current customers. While it takes some time to build a following, it is a relatively inexpensive way to build online credibility.

I recommend starting with one social channel and then building from there.

If you are interested in Facebook, contests are a good way to generate followers quickly. Companies like Grosocial are pretty inexpensive and they have great templates to work from.

HI Nutty. With forum posting- Is it mostly referral traffic, or does it also help increase your organic traffic?
