Blogging - do you own your own blog? If not you can set one up today for no money at all by using www.blogger.com or www.wordpress.com and start getting links to your site. Some of those links will generate their own traffic, so the trick is to get the word out about your post. What do you do is write a post with keywords related to your topic or niche, and then use the ping services to get the word out. Try using www.pingomatic.com and www.pingoat.com that will send your link out to lots of blog directories and sites. Traffic will grow the more you do it.
Forum posting - most subjects or niches on the web now have their very own forum related to it and you can join them mostly for free. Make good posts that people are interested in amongst the popular threads and you will get people clicking on your link.
Write some articles - article writing is one of my favourite ways to generate traffic. You can get longer term traffic but usually a flurry when the article is accepted. Try not to send the same article out each time to the different directories, rewrite them to make them unique. Some will fail, some will be average and some will be superb, so it is a case of not relying on just the one article.
Digg it - Digg is a great site with high page rank and high traffic. Boost your own traffic today by placing links to all of your website pages. If you don't have a web site then set up a free blog and point traffic there.
Email broadcast - you can use some one else's list if you don't have your own. Join www.listdotcom.com for example and you can send out an email. To be honest I find responses are low, but better if I offer something for free.
Joint Ventures - politely ask another list owner in your business if you can form a mutually beneficial partnership and let them promote to your list, or put a banner on your web site. In exchange you get to do the same, but emailing to their list is the most beneficial thing to do and this can bring you a boost to your internet traffic. Make sure you aren't in direct competition with each other. To use a popular example, if you knew a business that sold gold clubs and you sold golf shoes then you have a product that will be of interest but not in direct competition.
