23 Ways to Drive Targeted Traffic Without Paying a Red Cent
Traffic is cheap. If you go to Fiverr, you will find plenty of people willing to drive “unlimited” amounts of it for as little as $5.
The problem is, traffic like that is not targeted, meaning it does not come from people you want on your site. In fact, it rarely comes from people at all! Most of the time, cheap clicks come from bots who will never give you a sale or turn into a customer.
So what do you do if you cannot afford targeted traffic from platforms like Google, where a single click can cost as much as $50? What do you do if you want to look beyond SEO and content marketing — and into other effective ways to reach your audience?
The post below gives you answers; 23 of them, to be precise. Here is how you can drive free, targeted traffic from real people without paying a red cent.
1. Use SlideShare
Many professionals share SlideShare content. If you can make a nice slide deck and share it there, you will get free traffic — especially if the presentation is good.
11. Join HARO
HARO, or Help a Reporter Out, is a service that connects journalists with people who can help them out. If you can give a useful interview or recommendation, you will get free coverage and 0-cost page visits.
