As per my experience i found that Social media marketing and Social Bookmarking are the best free techniques which generate huge traffic in small time. Other techniques like Press release and Classified submission are also effective for traffic generation.

1). Facebook

4). Emails (Add link in your signature)
5). Fiverr (it isn't free, but it's a site where you can hire someone to do something for 5 bucks).
6). About Me page on eBay
7). Submit site to product related sites. For example when I started pocketknivesblog.com I did a search for submit knife site and found a couple sites realted to knives that allowed me to list my site.
8). YouTube (that can be very quick).
9). Blogs - take too long IMHO.
10). Write an ebook and give it away to website visitors!
I think Mktgbiz that you've pretty much summed everything up in a nutshell & what you can do on some of the Social Networking Sites like Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn, start replying to other people's comments, asking questions, start networking & building relationships.

You can take a blog & build up a blogging association by creating valuable content on a consistent basis, promoting your content & enticing others to leave comments on your posts by may be asking questions related to your topics at the end of your posts.

If you're a newbie my suggestion is to pick out anywhere from 1-2 strategies, set aside certain hours to work on them consistently before you even think about moving on to something else.

I see a lot of Internet Marketers try to do to much at one time which usually leads up to nothing working out for them because they really didn't take the time to work on 1-2 things slowly & consistently.

So set your goals & be realistic, pick out your strategies & work on them each & every day before you know have so much traffic coming in that you won't know what to do.

Facebook and twitter are the best to increase website traffic. PPC also increases the website traffic. But need more money.

There are no shortcuts if you want to build a strong site. Guest blogging is very popular now - look for a high-quality blog in your industry/niche, with a good pagerank. And also you should use social media sites.

the first u-tube acct should have a name that is keyword targeted and match your gmail setup for same keyword, example my first hub has freemlmleadstoday and my gmail is the same, next edit name on utube, instead of using your name change to your key word, upload video with url in the video for site, containing keyword in url example as listed in my own,

as explained in setting up gmail and utube, now that you have utube video up take that link and create 2 other videos with that utube link embeded in new videos, set up 2nd gmail and utubes acct's example freemlmleadstoday12 and freemlmleadstoday22 then upload new videos which point to first utube acct, last step join vagex (free) and upload primary video and download viewer which helps you get a lot of views. if any of this is confusing contact me thru my profile cableman315

What I personally target and produce is meme's and word searches which can be customized and targeted to your specific niche audience. They have a uniqueness about them that makes them extremely viral while being able to carry your URL forward.

Do social media posting! of course in order to be successful at getting traffic from your company's social media account you need to connect with your existing market but that wouldnt be too hard... You can like add a QR code in your store for all your clients to add or if this is an online company, you can send an invite via email or add buttons of your social media accounts in your website

Use Seo techniques to increase your website traffic. High quality content and other relevant and educational information is important to increase your website traffic.

Yes it is true that content is very important. Now people can not use black hat techniques because search engine algorithms have become more powerful. Now search engines are giving importance to pages that are unique and have relevant content. You can improve your ranking and traffic with quality content.
