Forum Marketing: Get Traffic from forums!
For this method just simply check out your forum guidelines and make sure it is okay to post opportunities, if not then simply post a link in your signature also check if this is okay as well.
I suggest making only two - three accounts on the top forums in your niche and add a signature to each of those accounts, and participate in those forums daily.
Video Marketing: Leverage the power of Video!
Simply make a high quality video if you can, and upload them to video sharing sites like:
- Youtube.com of course
