A website without traffic makes no sense and no money. Suppose you are new to Internet Marketing or better yet you have a very limited budget. Evidently you cannot or have not gained enough experience and confidence to do paid traffic.

What is the next best thing in terms of getting visitors to your site or product?

    Assuming you don't have the budget then you have to do everything yourself. Build back links by commenting on blogs, forums and social networks. Try submitting to article directories as well.

      I think nlguyen got it right. You need to do all these things, and this is assuming to have selected a product/service that has demand, and that you can compete in. Good luck!

    Gaining natural traffic takes time and requires a lot of effort especially if you don't have budget. It is quite an educational experience though if you do marketing yourself rather than paying for traffic. Means of getting traffic includes article writing, blogging, social bookmarking and many more.

      Article submission works well but it does have a slow start. For it to be effective however, you'll need to submit a lot of article and continue to do so over a period of time. Resource box will help you if you utilize it correctly. You must also do seo with in the body of your articles as well as the title and finally an anchor text in your resource box.

      Blogging and posting in forums such as this one is also very effective as it puts you in front of a highly targeted traffic. You must know the rules however before you begin to post. I cannot over emphasis the importance of reading posting rules before you begin contributing. You can place your information in the resource box and it automatically generates free traffic.

      Natural and organic traffic is rewarding. Almost all backlinks need to be related to your content. That way, the traffic you are getting will continue to return to your website. You don't want crap traffic that shows up and gives your page a high bounce rate.

    Bookmarking, Articles Submissions, RSS Feeds, Website Submissions, Lenses, Hubs, Villages, Press Releases, PDFs, Videos and more.

    There are so many options when it comes to free traffic, if used correctly you can make thousands.

    One thing I must mention that also helps with generating traffic is posting ads for free if you're just starting out and have a limited budget.

    Go to places like usfreeads.com & salespider.com and post for free. you may not get a lot of traffic however, some traffic is better than none.

      Getting free traffic your self is grunt work, you have to take bits and pieces of a lot of strategies, when your desperate for traffic, you can't leave any on the table...

      That is one of the best questions that one can ask themselves. I have seen marketers struggle, they put in the work, they drive the traffic and get horrible conversions? WHY? Because the poor foks think they know how to write ad copy that converts when they have little to no experience doing it.

      That is a tough nutt to swallow, good ad copy can make all the difference and if you are not a pro copy writer, you should probably pay someone else to do it.

    If you've tried some of the online traffic methods that I mentioned previously, you are getting results. To add to such results, do some offline marketing. The one that comes to mind right away is placing ads in local newspaper.

    Sure this method will cost a little but if you do the small town around big cities, they're considerably cheaper but very effective.

    Why crave for traffic, why not go to where you prospect is likely hanging out.

    There are niche communities all over the place some even untapped.

    Go to where they are and hang out each day and help them and put your messages infront of them, and even offer free PDF ebooks to get them into your funnel.

    Dont copy every other creaton out there, be different, be original and dont spam... be noticed and hang out where you customers do. work smarter not harder.

      What do you do though if (like in my case/niche) every single forum out there for example has rules that prevent you from putting a link in your signature if it's even only remotely commercial?

      I have the knowledge and I'd love to participate in those communities first but how I could I possibly get any traffic from it?

    Sending E-mails is a great option. Writing emails for others to use on their websites and newsletters is a great way to start off. You can radically add onto your visibility by writing in your area of expertise and proficiency. Distribute these to the concerned editors as an absolute free content for their e-mail newsletters or their websites. You can even put forward your website to numerous search engines. It could be the major and also the lesser known search engines, for instance, Google, Yahoo, MSN, AOL, Web Crawler, Bing etc. These will help to sustain a stable stream of capable visitors. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a sure shot method to get traffic for your website. Get the website programmed in the organic results of popular search engines.

      There are tons of free traffic generation strategies out there. You just need to focus on a few and perfect them.

      I would suggest:

      1. Article Marketing
      2. Blog Commenting
      3. Forum Marketing
      4. Directory Submissions
      5. Social Bookmarking
      6. Web 2.0 Marketing

      Choose any of the above and perfect one first before moving to the 2nd and 3rd...and so forth.

      As time goes by, while you perform all these free traffic generation strategies correctly, you will find an increase of free traffic to your sites.

      I wish you all the best in your Internet marketing business! Cheers!

      Promote and Prospers!

    Reading blogs of others in your niche and commenting on them will help. Lots of my traffic comes from interacting with other blogs in the IM niche.

    Give it time, keep creating content to get crawled by the search engines and you will see it is easier than you thought. Give it a month or two and use the advice you will see more traffic. You should also add your site to the signature here and other forums.

      I think traffic is about this

      1) test something

      2) test other stuff

      3) start to notice results from the stuff you tested. (make money or generate good traffic)

      4) Keep doing the stuff you tested and worked or made you money. Remember you are after high quality traffic.

      I have a black book, and has all my strategies that worked well. IF I want more sales or more success I jsut go to this little black book, open it up and just start doing the stuff that works for me, and stop doing the things that failed when I tested them.

      Pretty simple really.

    No matter how skilled you are and how much more you are willing to spend on traffic, you are still one person. With this in mind, form relationships so you can help each other. That's what I do and it works out great.

    I am reffering to partner traffic. Let's say you have 100 people all sending traffic your way through affiliate marketing. You generate traffic exponentially while doing the same for your partners. Don't think for a minute that you can create nor destroy traffic.

    Like energy, traffic can only be redirected. People with needs are arleady there looking for answers. My job is to find them and bring them to my solutions.

    It's been said here but I'll stress it again: social media.
    1. It's free.
    2. You can grow traffic there exponentially, as this is the core of social media activity.
    3. It usually generates fast results.
    4. Lots of surprises (usually good) can happen when promoting and generating traffic from social media.
    5. It can provide you with valuable information and insights about your business and get a clearer "user's point of view".

        I think that statement kind of contradicts itself...

        If you say all traffic is good, that means I can send 10 year olds cruising on YouTube to a biz opp or dating offer and it will make $$$

        If it converts well, that means it was probably very targeted in the first place, and some traffic sources will get better targeted traffic than others.

    Sweet SEO content which is also reader-friendly would help you get the best traffic if you can distribute it properly. I mean content in any form including articles, videos, ppt presentations, ebooks, press releases, forum posts, blog comments etc. And backlinks would push your content in front of people.
