    Try some paid advertising. Also, you can do some classifieds and search for business based magazines and newsletters.

    But upon taking a look at your site I suspect you're just fishing here.

    Try using the local keywords in your website content. Local search is getting more preference today.

    i'd go always with seo on such projects + outreach to seo providers to have you in their list - that way you could even make some spare money ;)

    Always aim for targeted or focused traffic. Bulk traffic, people with no interest in your services is something you should avoid. Targeted traffic will lead to conversions, bulk traffic will not.
    How to get this targeted traffic? You can do the job yourself; Get an army of affiliates, set up a blog section and write helpful articles, do your technical SEO, set up a Facebook page and interact with people etc. On the other hand, you can pay someone to get you this traffic.

    You can either try to buy traffic from traffic sources or use PPC or SEO to attract it. First you need to think of your target audience who would be interested in reading your website. It's important to do before buying traffic in order not to waste your money.

    You certainly need a good and stable tool to evaluate the effectiveness of your efforts. I mean a tracker and TDS (AdsBridge, for example) that helps to track conversions and to distribute traffic on different conditions for more accurate targeting.

    To make your website successful you need to buy the best keywords at the lowest price, also try to find the right keywords for your business and make sure the users will stay on site and not leave it right away!

    Try Blog commenting on high traffic blogs in your niche.
    Don't spam write a valuable comment to get the attention of the reader.
    You can get a very good amount of targeted traffic with blog commenting.

    IMHO bad idea to start business directory listings website, the time it was popular passed years ago. Most popular was DMOZ which is "dead" already... (omg if someone so old as me to remember)
    I would rather start niche blog

    That phrase makes me laugh, because business directory listing website should attract business owners itself. That content in most cases should be user generated like from users:
    • listing itself
    • comments under business listing as a feedback
    • Rating using schema.org as well voted from other users

    I could bet business owners creating new listing will not be willing to create 500 words description, they just want to write couple of words/tags and drop a link with keyword
    Google knows that it is very easy way for anyone to get backlinks and Google does not take so much attention to this type of content.

    I don't think SEO will ever bring any traffic if you understand what it does. The main traffic source is social networks.
