    What are your thoughts guys? I think the best way to get traffic is by posting in forums and blog commenting regularly.

    Hey Dionne,

    Free ways of getting traffic are like you mentioned above. Post on forums and comment on targeted blogs that are in your niche.

    Other than that, I guess you could do paid advertising as in banner ads (on similar sites), traffic exchanges and solo advertising.

    Another free way that is good is set up a FB fan page and network through there.

    Great thread buddy.

    Don't forget to use classifieds. The good thing about classifieds is people go there trying to find something they need (and not just browsing for fun). They are your best targeted traffic ever.

    To buy it Period!
    Traffic is only good if its highly targeted to your offer.
    Forum traffic like you mentioned is highly targeted and that is why you feel the way that you do!

    Solo ads I reckon.
    There relatively cheap and can be extremely targeted to your niche if find the right provider.
    Then possibly purchasing some ad space on a site or blog that is also targeted to your niche and one that has high traffic!

    It's all about getting leads and building a list. The truest saying about IM is the money is in the list and that's 100% true so get high quality leads that are targeted and you should do fine in the long-term!

    In my opinion, the best way to get organic traffic is through SERP. Means if you want organic traffic to your website, first of all promote it with proper landing page and surely, the traffic will increase instantly.

    If you have no money.

    One of my favourite methods is using YouTube creating of my own videos and to bring in traffic. It works really well.

    Once you have a funnel in place which is making you money you can quantify how much per lead. Then you can investigate paid traffic because you will know how much you can afford to pay. You need to track your conversion rates from each source. When you find a source which is costing you a decent amount less than you are making from the sale then you can hammer that source. If you are talking about solo ads that might be difficult.

    Sources of paid traffic which you can ramp up easily which I suggest you check out include media buys, Plenty of Fish, Google Content Network (much cheaper than Adwords). You need to test, but when you hit a gold seam you can really mine it.

    I would say there is no number one way. The mixture of the use of social media and Google-SEO is the right way.

    The best of getting traffic is to be every where on the internet. The important thing to remember is look for out for the places where you can attract potential visitors.

    Every time I come to this post I learn something new so thanks everyone for posting.

    I guess if you don't have a strong following you will have to build up a strong following which is best done by email marketing. Using solo ads to get leads and then through your emails you can direct them to your social media sites and maybe they will 'like' you and therefore you can connect with these potential customers on a more personal level.

    All in all paid traffic that is targeted to your niche is the best and quickest way to build up a following and generate sales.

    Does anyone agree????
