1. Use Social Media
Social media is going to be your right hand man when it comes to your traffic. Start with joining 3 social channels for your biz and focus on those to drive traffic back to your website. Get Google Analytics installed and figure out…
Where your audience dwells?
Where are they hanging out online?
Whatever social networks are driving the most traffic, make sure to buckle down your efforts and focus on those networks.
2. Join Social Communities
Social communities are so huge for traffic. These collective groups can help you up your traffic numbers almost instantly.
You join an engagement group for bloggers on Facebook and participate in a Clickthrough thread. It results in getting 100 new clicks to your website in one day!
Rinse and repeat daily for 3K visits per month and if you do this with multiple groups, you can grow your traffic even more.
This is just one example. You can also join groups and lists on other networks like Twitter, LinkedIn, and more.

Browse for your niche, then answer the question fully and thoroughly, like you’d be writing a blog post. Make sure to use examples, images, screenshots, everything you would do for a blog post.
