Any business can only be built as tall as the foundation is deep. So building quality targeted free traffic over time is a solid strategy, and will provide you with the best quality traffic in the long run. The next best traffic as far as quality goes is paid traffic that you can target to specific audiences. I’m referring to paid traffic from places such as Facebook ads, Bing ads, etc. The problem that paid advertising is that it only continues coming as long as you keep paying.
Try to find different ways to get easy, free and consistent targeted traffic to your website or blog, and in the end every trickle of traffic from many sources will amount to enough traffic to build your list and your business.
Blogging is still one of the very best long term free traffic strategies in my personal opinion and experience.
However, I’ll be giving you 3 quick tips to get free traffic to your website below.
