Generating traffic for your business is the ultimate priority and the more traffic you have, the bigger the potential for huge sales and for returning customers. The problem is that some marketers are not using all of the effective strategies available and this is causing their engagement to drop and their conversions to be smaller. I’m going to share 5 free ways to generate traffic that you might not be using right now, but you definitely should use.

Add your links to social bookmarking websites

This is a very powerful method to get more traffic to your websites an social media. Sites like Reddit, Stumble upon and Digg are ideal for this purpose. Keep in mind that the more links you have in this sort of site, the higher you will rank as you will get more traffic to come through those links.

Make sure the links have calls to action

Think of every link you share online as an opportunity to sell your products and services to people. Create compelling and highly converting calls to action in order to ensure the best results with your clients.

Pin social media posts

Pinning posts on social media to enhance their conversion potential is a very powerful and useful strategy that us being implemented by many successful marketers. Always remember that pinning your social media posts give you the opportunity to engage a larger number of users that might not log into social media at the time you piblished that particular post.

Turn your employees into marketers

It doesn’t matter if your business is large or small, you should get everyone in the office to share your business in their own social media walls. This is going to help you increase awareness and it’s a win-win situation for everyone. The more you generate the more benefits you can give to your workforce.

Use Q&A Sites for promotion

Register to sites that have Q&A sections like Yahoo answers and then you can post answers to question with a relevant blog link that leads people to your business. This has become one of the most effective ways for people to get external traffic into their sites and social media. The best thing about this method is that the more popular the question, the higher the chances to see conversions from it when you link a quality article to your response.
