    For me, setting up a google alert on my topic and writing good comments on the alerts that come it has worked well.

    Also, surprising LinkedIn has brought me some good traffic as well.

    I use craigslist on occasion. For example I currently have a rare CD for sale on Amazon selling via FBA. The music is rather regional so I have posted ads in a few of the appropriate cities telling about the CD and how they can easily find it on Amazon. This is a rarity that I have a reason to do this however.

    I don't find the quality of leads on most free traffic sources to be worth the while. However, depending on what you're selling, you can try posting free ads on Backpages.com for the largest cities.

    YouTube all the way. Another is seo. fb isn't free. Google can help you with organic traffic (WHY do you use the term FREE nothing is free, in fact, organic traffic is the hardest to build). If your content drives lots of likes and shares, then fb is your friend in terms of organic reach. Organic traffic from fb is likely possible if you create engaging social content like what Upworthy.com or attn.com do. Do not forget, you need top-notch video creation skills in order to find any traction, which may take ages. Videos are better than just text and graphics. I suggest you better spend your time learning paid ads for faster results. I am saying this because it took me about two years to master those special video editing skills. I do non-liner editing only, which means I write my own video program. Again, nothing is free, you either pay cash or your time. I chose the later.

    Create a Facebook Page, start by posting twice a day for the next 30 days. One about your business and the other about yourself. Post business valuable quotes, ask engaging questions, post engaging & funny pictures, post free youtube video related to your business or make your own, etc.

    Not sure if this counts, but jv affiliates are free in the sense that you only pay if their list makes money, so there's no up-front financial risk. Obviously, you need your funnel and offer to be on point, of course, because you never want to have an affiliate send something out to their list and get no return on it.

    YouTube is very powerful if you do your research on good SEO practices and find out their ranking factors. Lots of people won't/can't go to the trouble of creating video which can give you an edge you won't likely get elsewhere.

      I incentivise customers to tweet a picture of themselves with my product (actually I give very specific instructions). They then get a discount code for their next purchase.

    Video marketing maybe fit your request. If not, just use FB or whatever you like, (think about sharing docs or bonus also good)

    One of the best methods for free traffic generation is still the good old search engine. Keep your website active by putting fresh and unique contents as well as improving your SEO. Another one is list building, giveaway any 'free items' that helps the target audience in any way in exchange of their emails thus you'll have the opportunity to keep them updated through newsletters, etc. Whether we like it or not, social media including forums are the modern day traffic generators. We can use the power of Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit, Linkedin, Google Plus and many more. We can get targeted traffic from free traffic generators but we need to put considerable effort in, there's no magic in internet marketing, those who are focused and putting a lot of effort win :-)

      All I do is just write articles and submit them to niche-relevant online/offline publications which already are targeting my best prospects.

      If you can write your own articles, this method can be free, and is perhaps the most effective way for generating massive amounts of highly convertible traffic.

    If you have a list, you could use ad swaps. There are plenty of sites advertising ways of swapping with other affiliates. You just need to make sure you know what you are getting and what you need to give in return. Good luck.

    as per my experience you have to create free classified sites and local listing of your business or topic... you can also post it in local event hosting site...
    also upselling is the better option for you to promote and generate traffic..
    one last is using high pr social site like tumblr, reddit and so many, because that is the platform which are you looking..
    you can see your traffic on google analytic or any free tools..
    i wish it will helps you too...

    I seem to get a lot of traffic to "junk" fanpages on FB (think celeb/popculture/model type niches, i.e. anything instagram worthy). I am sure that my sites are kept in the Google index on the strength of having popular looking fan pages and good social signals.

    Yes, I totally agree with those posts suggesting classified ads.

    After all, this is how I made my 1st dollar online in 2008.

    Before knowing and doing list building and email marketing.

    Here are the sites I have been using for 9 years.

    1. Adlandpro

    2. Adpost

    3. Backpage

    4. Classified Ads

    5. Craiglist

    6. Gumtree

    7. Locanto

    8. STClassifieds


    Though there are many other sites, these 8 gave me the biggest ROI based on experiences.
