You walk into a meeting with your web designer (marketing/advertising agency) and ask them to help you drive traffic to your site. They reply “There is no such thing as a free lunch traffic”

I’m here to tell you there is such a thing as free traffic and here are 5 easy steps you can follow to drive traffic to your site.

  1. Comments: the more you participate on other blogs within the community the more likely you will garner traffic from the visitors to these sites. Don’t comment for comments sake, only comment if you can add value – otherwise you just look like a dick.
  2. Email Promotion: make sure that every email you send has your sites url attached.
  3. Blogging & Forums: create a way for the visitors to your site to interact with you. Comments are a great way to learn from your visitors. Forums allow your visitors at start adding value to your site for you.
  4. Social Network Profiles: the world is moving down the social network path and you need to be there. Almost every band has a MySpace page, many HR people have LinkedIn profiles, and everyday users are joining Facebook. Use your profile to support and drive traffic to your site.
  5. StumbleUpon: use it, it can and does drive traffic to your site. A mate of mine promoted my Google & Firefox post this morning. Within hours I had 500+ brand new users hit the site (when my mate tried this he had over 1000+). My bounce rate dropped by 15% and the time spent on studiowhiz increased by a full 60seconds.
