    If you want other websites to be referring their visitors to your website, then there are several strategies you can engage in.

    1) LINK EXCHANGE: contact webmasters and product developers and negotiate on how to display a link on their website so that clients can click and move to your website.

    2) PAID ADVERTS: pay for ads on sites like "Google Adsense" to be displaced on the google network

    3) CLASSIFIED ADS...

    The list is unlimited...

    Referral traffic can be acquired from various source like social media, Forums, QnA website so it depends on you where you want to invest time or money.
    Like you can invest into paid advertisements over facebook, Pinterest and receive traffic from it.

    Hi AMorrisonP,

    The formula for getting referral traffic is simple:
    1. Write or currate content with high utility value
    2. Promote your useful content to centers of influence

    People who act as centers of influence will refer traffic to the content they find as useful to themselves and people they know, or follow their advice.

    The easiest method to more sharing of your content, is to simply ask. I use a Authors box at the end of all of my content.. I ask for the share. I also ensure that my social SHARE buttons are in there as well.

    I am a BIG fan of creating content in PDF format. To include my weekly emails to my mailing lists. At the bottom of each page I say "This content is ok to share" or "Sharing is caring" and I have working icons to share the PDF on social sites.

    A couple of my sites I have actually created "Media" pages where I have banners and such in different sizes. Also have the code snippets for each.

    Bottom line.. if you are not ASKING you shall never receive. And by removing the friction to share by actually having the share buttons right where you ask for the share is really helpful.

    Another added.. I personally don't use it, but see it all the time, those mid content twitter share boxes, I am sure have got to work.

    Try this one:

    Find blogs with substantial topical trust flow in your niche. You can use Alltop(dot)com to find prominent blog post for a topic. Use Serpstat's "Top Pages" to find pages with the best visibility for a keyword (also a great method when you do your content research, as usually these page have the best content, and thus you can research each of your keywords)

    Reach them and propose to do guest-blogging for them.

    Promoting your best pieces of content will also increase your site's visibility.

    Hi,
    Referral Traffic :- Referral traffic is Google's method of reporting visits that came to your site from sources outside of its search engine. These sources can be other blogs, social media sites, forums etc.


    Use Quora :- Quora is a question and answer website that can help you a lot with your referral traffic. All you need to do is find questions related to your industry and answer excellently. And yes, don’t forget to add the link to your site or blog page.

    Social Media :- Social Media can help a lot to get you the much needed referral traffic. But before promoting your content on Social Media make sure that your content is up to the mark. Choose the right platform to promote your content, if you are into B2B business, use LinkedIn.

    Link Building :- Any Digital Marketer will know the importance of building backlinks, but the important part over here is to build quality links. If you have a backlink from a popular website, then it becomes obvious that most of the people visiting their website will visit yours as well which shall increase your traffic.


    Create and Add Infographics :- If an ordinary image is equivalent to thousand words, then an infographic is equivalent to 10 thousand words. Infographics are shareable, linkable and evergreen asset.


    Guest Blogging :- This again is a time consuming process but the results through this are definite provided you take up guest blogging for the reputed websites. Try searching for the bloggers in your industry and offer them help. We are sure, that they won’t say a no if you are an expert in your field.

    Blog Commenting :- Commenting on blogs by others will not only help you build a healthy relationship and backlinks but will also garner you a lot of referral traffic. But this can be achieved only when it is done in a right way.

    No matter how big digital and outdoor advertising gets, word of mouth is always going to be one of the best performing networks for any business size.
    I would suggest some tips which will help in referral marketing.

    1. Understand your customer base that can drive referrals- Explore your email list and social media.
    2.Segment these customers and decide the marketing channels you need to use.
    3.Analyse and optimize for better conversions -
    To optimize properly, you should follow these steps

    -Note the important numbers with every campaign like referrals sent, referrals converted, email subject lines that worked, difference between different segments for targeting.
    -Tweak your marketing messaging and create A/B tests to check different subject lines, targeting options, time of launch and color scheme with social media.
    -Understand what works and what doesn’t. Use these insights to formulate the future campaigns and avoid the non-performing strategies.
    -The goal should be to maximise referrals at a minimum cost.

    Hope you find this helpful!

    Cheers,
    Shivankit Arora

    Referral traffic is valuable in online marketing because it sends interested readers and qualified potential customers to your site from new domains. It also provides added SEO benefits, since by definition referral traffic is driven either by an inbound link or social activity, both of which send positive signals to the search engines about your site.

    Guest Posts

    Guest posts are a great way to build up referral traffic. Especially in light of the Penguin update, it’s best to focus your guest posting efforts on sites that are related to your business, which means your content will be in front of a relevant audience providing top-notch referral traffic. If you can set up a regular guest posting schedule, all the better, because that allows you to keep your referral traffic from those sources steady over time and increase traffic to your website.

    Social Networks: Facebook, Linked In, and Google+

    Social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google+ are also natural contenders for bringing in referral traffic. Just remember your platform—Facebook and Google+ tend to promote a more casual, friendly atmosphere while LinkedIn is more professional.
    Share your latest blog posts, events, or even favorite blog comments. It’s fine to share a link to a page that simply needs a bump in traffic now and again, but be aware these attempts can sometimes appear spammy – your followers’ tolerance may vary.

    Press Releases

    Press releases are a quick and easy way to get a wave of fresh referral traffic. It’s a great idea to do a press release for an event you’ll be hosting or to announce milestones like executive changes, earnings releases, acquisitions, and product launches. But to be honest, if you are paying for a press release, you can write about pretty much anything and pretend it’s newsworthy. Some businesses even send out press releases whenever they get a new client.
