Bringing traffic to the site is just the begining of the sales battle, in order to achieve sales the website visitor must find your content engaging and meaningful. To hold the reader’s attention the content must be original and timeless (evergreen). If it pertains to something that is not relevant to the reader than they will click away to another website and you will not see any sales.

Offer free advice or help that will solve problems for your prospective clients on these forums by offering helpful posts. Do not blatently advertise your website but have your website url in your signature.

You can also blog your way to generating traffic. Have a blog associated with your website and consistently post on the blog about the benefits of your products or services. Give away free stuff on your blog that is directly related to your products or services.

Article marketing is the fourth way to generate traffic. You can write the articles yourself or find someone to do them for you in expensive ways such as by finding someone on to write the articles for you. Then post the articles in article directories with your website url in the author box.
