    You will receive a lot of good answers but I will get it started.

    For free traffic methods:

    1. Article Marketing
    2. Forum Marketing
    3. Video Marketing

    And one of my favorites - traffic from my mailing lists.

    Do you mean, for the term "internet marketing"? Before you get involved in any kind of traffic strategy, make sure to check out your demographic, find out where they hang out and then advertise there. When you are able to match those two things with your landing page, you're golden.

      Yes, "Work out who your customers are, what they want, and where they go. Then go there yourself and offer them precisely what they want"!!

      Just because this is INTERNET marketing, some people forget the basics of marketing.

    The above posts essentially hit the nail on the head. =)

    If you were looking to catch a certain fish, how would you do it? First, determine how prevalent they are and where they tend to hang out (think anchovies vs. coelacanth). Then, visit those places and leverage your resources to give them a reason to take your bait. You can choose: do you want to live among the fish? Perhaps you want to drop some bait into your trap and wait for them to go searching for it. You might even try a combination of practices in order to get them all working together.

    Whatever method you choose, stay on target; don't use trout lures and expect to catch a carp! =D

    Good luck!

    Hi Steve,

    Read this thread. Then scroll down to post #6 for the list. Then scroll down to post #16 and download the free PDF.

    http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...questions.html

    I hope you find what you are looking for (or maybe didn't even think of).

    The list is quite extensive, so you will want to go through it when you have time to really concentrate and absorb all this wonderful information.

    Cheers,

    JMB

  • Lately I've been using a combination of Facebook, twitter, and YouTube to generate targeted traffic to my site. I definitely think that social and video marketing is the future of the Internet.

    You can either :
    1. Pay for traffic (PPC, banner ads, etc)
    2. Borrow traffic from people who already have your target prospect.
    3. Get it for free with seo and other social media, youtube, forums.

    Try using facebook. Type in the search field of your interest for example internet marketing.

    Then click on the magnifying glass towards the right of the search field and click.

    You will notice how many internet marketing groups there are.

    You will also notice how many members are listed at each group.

    Click on groups towards the left.

    Then click on any particular group you would like to join up.

    Look towards the left of the page for the admins creator of the particular facebook you are on.
    Then send a request to be part of that group.

    Then you can attach your url and share it.

    The key is to comment & interact just like interacting in this forum. Once your url is shared, all the friends on this site will see your url.

    There many more other strategys with facebook.

    Good luck

    Surprised I didn't see guest posting in this list, it's the one I'd recommend.

    Make a list of the websites that already have the type of visitor, your interested in, and then write some quality articles and submit them in as guest posts. You'd be surprised how well this works, and how few decent guest posts they are actually receiving.

    Great ideas here, but amazingly nobody has mentioned "ranking high for organic keywords in Google" as a way of getting targeted traffic.

    This is where I get all my targeted traffic. I suppose it's the least subtle or inventive way to do it, but it sure does work.
