Social Advertising: 

It’s already known to us that social networks have the highest power of generating traffic and leads. But from the past few years, apart from sharing content you can also place ads on them.

You may have noticed the ads appearing on your facebook home page as well as other pages, they are all paid ads and this is what you can also do to gain exposure.

No matter which network you choose, they all will work in pretty much the same manner. It basically works on PPC model and the rates are quite affordable.

Some top networks to choose from are:

List Building Services: 

This is indeed the best way to get targeted traffic though it requires a lot of effort and time.

It all starts with building lists, which can be done in many ways. You can conduct giveaways or offer freebies to increase your lists. Once you have a good list of subscribers you can start with the next step which involves frequent emailing of your new posts or product to your subscribers.

InInbox is one such service which I chose for email marketing. Do read my review of InInbox.

Contest marketing: 

This is the best method to get huge traffic on your blog. You can come up with different contests like giving away hosting for 1 year or some SEO plugins or template or if you can afford you can even host a contest of iPhone giveaway.

There are a lot of sites where you can submit your giveaway and get links back to your original site.

PunchTab and Rafflecopter are my favorites for hosting a giveaway as they come with a whole lot of features allowing you to get more social exposure.

Video Marketing:

It is usually a process of selling your services or products with the help of videos. This is a great way to reach out those sections of the audiences who would otherwise have missed it.

This can again be done in many ways, either by embedding your ads between the related videos or just uploading the ads as standalone videos or just placing text ads in the video.

MakeWebVideo is the service I usually use since it offers a lot of professional templates that I can use in my videos.


I know you may have heard of this thing a lot of times but do you know about it lately?? I don’t think so!!

Well a podcast/netcast is an audio or a video file available online for syndication and the users can easily
download a new podcast as soon as it is released.

One of the best thing about it is that anyone can get into it. Grab a microphone and a software and you’re ready to go.

But what should you do with podcasts? Well make it simple and informative, the topic may of any niche that you are familiar with. Keep it long, around 20 to 60 minutes would do great. And yes upload them regularly to build some reputation and hold on your listeners. Add these podcasts into RSS feeds to get much wider exposure.
Some sites where you can host your podcasts are:

eBook Distribution: 

Blog posts cannot contain the whole information, They are only limited to about 500-2000 words. So here comes the eBook part. You can simply go for long how-to guides or pack your ebook with different strategies. Make sure to add your own bio and your links.

How you want to give it is your choice. However I would recommend you to giveaway freely as it will build trust which inturn will help you get more traffic or even sales if you have any product. Submit your ebooks to different directories and get high exposure.

Some directories are:


So these were 10 best traffic building methods that are often overlooked by us.

Hmm what do you think about it?
