    I make around $7,500 / month from PPV & POF paid advertising.

    $3,000 / month from subscription and service blogs with free advertising. All from industry blogs and some forums.

    $2,000 / month from consulting service for non-IM related companies. All word of mouth.

    Definitely varies month to month a lot, but that is what's working for me.

    Nearly anything can work if you put the time in, but just make sure you focus on sources with volume.

      I can give you some tips about off page SEO, this works like magic for new site that barely have any network asset. You can try building back link TO you site, and the longer your web is on the internet, people will create back link FROM your site.
      1. use SEOquake to quickly find the page rank of a RELEVANT site, I strongly recommend to make back link to a site that related with your web, for example when you are in weight loss niche then you should make back link in running site, yoga, health food, muscle exercise site, etc
      2. make a unique comment, don't use lame copy ad or people will get away from your link, also put your link in above, not in the low part

      good luck creating back link!

    Well, to be honest, I doubt that anyone would give up their own best method as, the aim with the internet is for people to see what you have to offer, not what anyone else has to offer but, as we all seem to be in the mood for sharing, I reckon that a combination of all of the above works and, it works really well... Some will for some people, some won't.... I live by the 80/20 rule, 80% of your traffic will come from 20% of your activity and 20% of your traffic will come from 80% of your activity... You just need to weed out what really works for you....

      I'm with you Neil. People who PAY for traffic know this. Test, Analyze, perfect. You wouldn't just fund an Adwords account, give it $100 a day, plug in a bunch of keywords and let-er-go... You track the results and stop paying for keywords that don't have good ROI. You test new keywords and new ads to see if you can do better.

      Same goes for free traffic. If I'm using Facebook, Tumblr and Youtube and they are all giving me free traffic, I still want to track to see which is giving me the MOST free traffic for the LEAST effort and concentrate my efforts there-- Or maybe I can identify WHY one isn't producing and what I might do to improve the return on my time investmenet.

      haha, so funny!

      There are like 34, 687 ways to get traffic, yes! I counted them all. :p:p

      Anyway for our businesses, its forums, PPC, press releases and videos.

      Once you realise when you build it THEY WILL NOT come to you, but you have go to the most likely place where you clients / prospects hang out and put your messages infront of them there.

      Media buys is also another good way to do this.

      Hope this helps.

    Honestly, for me - nothing works better than youtube and fanpage traffic.

    It's easy to build up HUGE trust on both with users, get them into your list - then hit them 3 times without seeming spammy.

    The same people see my offers in their inbox, on FB and on Youtube - works out quite well

      Is it possible to send messages to your facebook page fans?

    Facebook, and forums are my two favorite methods. Many people underestimate the power of traffic coming from forums - but if you leave valued post - you will get highly targeted visitors to your site.

    Paid traffic is definitely the quickest way to start seeing results, for the most part. I think it depends what niche market you're in and what you're promoting...an affiliate offer, a sales page, a blog, a squeeze page etc.

      I agreed for niche. I just a PPC programs and almost immediately have more success immediately.

    Blog marketing definitely. I get alot of results with it - despite being in a tough niche. All depends on your marketing strategy.

      yeah, you have to bring something to the table doesn't exist in terms of value for the niche. Don't have to be anything major, but a little creativity goes a long way.

    I would say my best traffic method is my IM blog

    Not only does my blog generate lots of traffic but i also build other traffic sources
    and send that traffic to my blog too

    It's not something that you can build up overnight it's more of a long term strategy but it's certainly worth it in the end :-)
