Here Are Some Methods for Generating Free Traffic

  • Join Facebook groups or Create one of your own
    Join Facebook groups in which your ideal audience is hanging out. Answer questions, ask some of your own, provide your unique insights, share your knowledge, and be useful overall. You can also promote your freebies and blog posts on days that allow promotions. When creating a Facebook group of your own, make sure to make it open to the public, have a designated schedule for daily threads, and answer others’ comments.
  • Do Facebook Live
    Facebook loves when you post video, especially when you do a Facebook live, and will organically show it to more people. These don’t have to be long to get results. If you’re struggling to come up with content to talk about during the Facebook live, you can repurpose a blog post you published into a video format. Remember to ask your viewers to like and share your Facebook live.
  • Join Pinterest group boards and / or create one of your own
    The more your pins get clicks and saves, the more they will be shared with others. A great way to get them in front of as many eyeballs as possible is to join Pinterest group boards within your niche. Remember to follow the rules after you join. When creating a Pinterest group board of your own, make sure to ask contributors to follow you and all of your boards first so you grow your follower base.
  • Start a YouTube channel
    Video is on the rise, and YouTube has a huge, loyal fanbase. If you offer tutorials or step-by-step guides, YouTube is an essential place to be in. After uploading your video to YouTube, make sure that you optimize it for SEO with tags, a searchable title, and by adding keywords within the description box. Remember to add links to your free offers and blog posts within the description as well, and mention those verbally during your video.
  • Comment on others’ social media posts
    This is especially vital within Facebook groups and on others’ Facebook pages. If you share quality advice and are generous, you increase your chances of being remembered, and of others reciprocating the favor on your own social media posts. This is also an amazing way to establish yourself as an expert or go-to person in your field.
  • Submit your blog posts to Reddit or Medium:
    Reddit is ideal to submit blog posts that have widespread appeal, whereas Medium is better for blog posts that are personal or talk about your unique journey on a particular subject. Link to other blog posts and to your freebies within the blog posts you post on these platforms, and get ready for a surge of traffic if your blog post goes viral.
  • Comment on other blogs
    Whenever you comment on another blog within your industry with something useful and insightful, not only are you helping the person who owns that blog, but also maximizing your exposure. Other people who read that blog may be interested in other things you have to say, and click through to your website. As such, always leave your website URL when you leave a comment on another blog post.
  • Become a case study
    If you read an influencer’s or popular blogger’s blog post about a subject you are not familiar with, but are dying to learn more about, reach out and mention that you would love to be their case study. Share your current stats or where you are right now in the process, and track your progress as you use that influencer’s or blogger’s strategies. They will love to have proof for what they talk about, and you will get exposure to their audience.
  • Answer questions on Quora or Yahoo Answers
    Be the expert who answers others’ questions, be it on Quora, Yahoo Answers, or other online forums. The more you answer questions and provide helpful and educated insights, the bigger the chance of your answer being considered the best of the bunch. This increases others’ curiosity about you and your business, and gets you clicks back to your site.
  • Write a guest post
    If you don’t have an audience yet, or just want to be exposed to a bigger audience, writing a guest post on another blog that has a similar target audience as you is excellent to do so. Make sure that the content you create is well thought out, and is even better than the content that you post on your own blog. When writing your short bio, add a link to your website and / or to a landing page with one of your absolute best freebies, so that those readers who enjoy your blog post have a chance to continue on their journey with you.
  • Interview others or offer to be interviewed
    Start an interview series on your blog with influencers or even with other bloggers. Once the post goes live, there is a big chance that the influencer or blogger will share your blog post with their audience. The same goes when you’re the one being interviewed. Not only do you get to share the interview with your audience, but it will also be read and seen by the network of people who read the blog in which it was published.
  • Publish a free eBook or guide on Amazon
    Thousands of people browse Amazon each day. Create and publish a free eBook on the platform, and include links within it to your blog posts and freebies. This way, you are leveraging on Amazon’s existing traffic to grow your own. If possible, ask those who downloaded the eBook for a rating and to write a review. This will improve your eBook’s search results on the platform.
  • Ask for referrals
    If you already have clients, or even an e-mail list of loyal fans, ask them to share your content with their friends, or with someone who would benefit from consuming your content. If this new person then enjoys what you offer, they will likely share it with their friends, creating an exponential increase in word of mouth marketing. The same goes for asking referrals from friends, family, acquaintances, and those who work with you.
