    Plenty.

    It's a popular topic on Warrior Forum.

    But what I think you're looking for is a free traffic method, not source.

    What do I mean?

    Well . . .

    Reddit,

    Google,

    YouTube,

    Snapchat,

    Instagram,

    Twitter,

    Facebook,

    Yahoo,

    Quora,

    Blogs,

    Forums,

    Dead Domains,

    Your email list,

    Word of mouth,

    Digg,

    SlideShare,

    Kindle books,

    iTunes,

    Vimeo,

    Flickr,

    Etc., Etc. . . .

    Those - and hundreds of others - are all free sources of traffic.

    But I think you want a method.

    A means, in other words, of tapping INTO one or more sources of targeted traffic.

    I'm a traffic junkie. (Hello, my name's Tom, and I'm addicted to traffic. Please help me.) I could walk you through a traffic method - step by step - but the right method for one marketer, is the wrong one for another.

    The method you choose?

    It depends on your abilities and your resources.

    What I'd suggest, mate, is looking around WF or Google for methods that relate to the sources I mention above.

    Uncover the methods.

    Or invent your own methods, as I often do, and see which ones fit best with your resources and abilities.

      This pretty much covers it.

      My favorite free traffic methods are forum marketing and blog commenting. They work great if done correctly and only require you to put in the time. Plus, you can help people in the process of marketing.

    You can find them a lot on this forum .In my opinion youtube its a very good one because you have traffic for years to come and people are more inclined to buy from videos instead of blog posts etc

    Phila1234,

    Your best free traffic method for promoting an affiliate product is to create a review video and post it on YouTube and using targeted keywords in your description.

    I wish you much success!

    With free traffic it can be difficult to target traffic per say.

    If you build a list or another type of asset (Facebook page, etc) then that can sometimes help

      Phila; one thing to keep in mind buddy: a website is an inanimate object. A website cannot *do* anything But a skilled affiliate marketer who creates helpful content and builds bonds can drive traffic. The site is the hammer, and you are the carpenter. See what I mean?

      Blogging rocks. You own a self-hosted Wordpress blog, build authority and hyper target traffic. Tons of work but unless you work and help and persist, you'll be broke anyway

    It depends on your niche. In some niche works the classified ads as well.

    Hi,

    My favourite free traffic sources are the following platforms:

    Youtube: Organic Videos
    Linkedin Video
    Facebook Groups.

    I think the above are the 3 most powerful ways to get free traffic to your offers.

    However there is a disclaimer...

    All of the above will take work and effort to generate traffic. But if you stick at it, add value in your content and remain consistent, you will be rewarded with lots of targeted free traffic and a loyal following who will buy your stuff.

    Out of the above my favourite would have to be Youtube. If you can establish your Youtube channel and get your videos ranked, it has the potential to generate you thousands of leads and sales. But don't expect it to happen overnight.

    If it were that easy, everyone would be successful affiliate marketers.

    The truth is, affiliate marketing is a business and you will need to put in time and effort to learn what works and what doesn't for your niche.

    This forum is a great place to learn. Once you figure it out, you can do very well financially.

    With that said, there are a ton of sources for free traffic, but just like opening a new restaurant on a busy street, you still have to pull that traffic in.

    Helping people is one great way to generate traffic. You can help people by educating them on a product or service for which you will earn a commission. You need to be genuine ant provide great value.

    Here are some things you can do:
    1. Start a blog in you niche. You can review products and services, and also teach people how to do things. You can use social media to reach people looking for what you are teaching. Traffic will also begin to grow organically (if your content is valuable).
    2. Make videos for YouTube, also teaching how to use products and services, and do reviews (as mentioned above). Always use carefully crafted titles and use keywords to reach your audience. They will find your videos.
    Don't send traffic directly to affiliate offers. That does not work any more (with few exceptions). You need to add value.

  • Find some influencers. You can tap into their lists and get instant traffic. They are targeted, you will look for influencer in your nitch.

    I personally use Openinfluence and Shoutcart. Both are powerful platforms and you can get super targeted traffic.

    Hope that helps

    Use safe email marketing where prospects view and respond to high valued or compelling ads.

    It's free to boot but as you get bigger, you'd be looking to buy credits and free up your time.

    Actually it's fun - all you have to do is click SEND. Mouth watering results and a joy to be using them.

    For free traffic, you can try forums, blog commenting, Reddit, Fb groups, Twitter, and YouTube.

    A good long term option would be to build a blog and do SEO. Rank your blog on the search engines and you will get highly targeted free traffic.

    I don't think it's a choice between blogs and Facebook etc.

    You should use them all together, back and forth, to build up your
    reputation and traffic, and build relationships with potential customers.

    And, of course, work on building a list while you're at it, by offering
    them a compelling lead magnet.

    Good luck!
