By using SEO you are drawing the traffic to you. If you insist on not using SEO then you are going to have to push the traffic from where it is already at. That means figuring out where your targeted audience is. Then going there to establish some kind of communication with them. Show them the right offer and convince them to go to your site.

You can use article marketing to do this.

You can also use any form of social media including -
1) Blog commenting
2) Forum commenting
3) Guest blogging
4) Facebook friends & networks
5) Linkdin friends and networks
6) Twitter followers
7) Any other social media sites where you might belong.

Find out where your target audience is. Then go mingle with them. Make friends first. Then show them what you have to offer.

when you promote your website in internet it is part of SEO actually. Though you can do it without a need of hiring an SEO firm to do it for you. All you have to do is to do some research in how to rank your website in top search engines... blogging, forum posting, article submissions are one of the key tool of promoting... good luck!

I think,Doing this many times over, will help you pull traffic from the search engines.use wordpress.org to create a self-hosted site and offer amazing value and optimize it for SEO and promote with social media and create relationships with it............

Try to use Forums. Search niche forums according to your website keywords. And participating on them and promote your website indirectly.

Default without SEO

Ernie, I wonder if you are reluctant to use SEO because it seems too complicated for you. I'm only guessing at that because I used to be in that boat. I still have a lot to learn, but once you understand keywords and the importance of relevant content you are already off to a good start.

If that's not the reason just disregard what I have said. But if it is the reason just spend some time around the forums, this one and Warrior Forum, ask questions and read the threads. You will find a wealth of information from very competent marketers.
