There are several website traffic generation methods that you can use to promote your site. These methods are best used in conjunction with email marketing and list building, but can be used to drive traffic to ecommerce sites as well. In fact, you will find you are most successful when you use these website traffic generation methods in conjunction with a free giveaway or special offer.
1. Online Classified Advertising. These ads are becoming more and more popular. Especially if you have something to offer for free, something to barter or trade, or something to sell that is a great deal, this is the best place for you to be spending your marketing efforts. They are free and used by people around the world. Craigslist alone received as much traffic as EzineArticles last month alone.
2. Article Marketing. Speaking of EzineArticles, this is the most popular site for article submissions. Article directories are a great way to promote your site because you can post to specific categories, show off your expertise and knowledge for your niche market, and reach your target audience. If you're lucky you will get your articles syndicated and find yourself in the middle of a virtual traffic storm.
3. Social Networking and Social Media. Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and Linked In are just a few of the social networking sites being used very successfully to generate traffic and buzz. You can also use social media such as You Tube to create videos for the same purpose.
