What is the best way to get targeted traffic besides search engines. Is there software, companies, techniques, or buying the traffic available that is worth effort or investment? I see a few options to buy targeted traffic but would like some say from warriors if it is a good way to get traffic to your website and get some sells.

    You can use ppc, podcasting, sponsored reviews, web directories, forum marketing and blogging. The thing is you have to like use search engines because it is effective too.

    Targetted traffic can be generated through
    - posting on relevent forums/ blogs
    - publishing good quality articles/ blogs
    - Press release written & distributed by a professional
    - Google adwords(sometimes can be bit expensive)

    This list is by no means exhaustive.

    For best targeted traffic, look for Solo Ads and PPC. It's paid traffic, but very fast and efficient, if you know what to do.

    You can use PPC advertising, PPV (CPV), Solo Ads and Media Buys. All of these methods will generate traffic and lots of it but you should know how to master these ways and how to track and tweak your campaigns as all of these methods are paid services and you may lose a lot of money.

    I hope this will help you.

    Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc etc

    Forums: create a stand out signature - then get involved with 4-5 forums in your particular niche

    List Swaps: Email someone in your niche ask if they would like to list swap. If they say yes, they will email their list about you, while you email your list about them. For best results start with a list of 500 - and you could get about 50-100 signups over night!

    Your on one of the most targeted sources of traffic right now

    A lot of it depends on what niche you're in

    If it's the IM niche then solo ads work well

    Traffic is actually the easiest part, having a sales funnel set up so you can leverage all of the traffic
    is what you should be first be focusing on

    2. Article Marketing
    3. Forum Marketing
    4. Sponsored Blog Reviews

    Online advertising and social media are your other two options

    A lot of people these days go with paid traffic then place any profits into on-going SEO for long term success

    Social media works for most niches but not all
