Passion and determination is what you need – how nice to have more traffic without spending any money.
Let’s look at a some of those methods.

Most of these allow you to create a signature line with a link to your website.
Make your signature line catchy so people want to click through.
Ask some questions, answer some questions, and get involved in some conversations.

Creating articles and submitting them to the many article banks online is yet another free traffic building tool you have available to you.
This one has been around for ages, and while some think it has lost its power, nothing could be further from the truth.
The key is to keep your articles fresh and to not submit the same article to more than one article bank.
If you don’t like to write or you don’t have time to write, not to worry there are many freelancers available to take this task over for you; however, that’s a service you’ll have to pay for.
That’s just a few free traffic building techniques that you can take advantage of.
There are plenty of others, so why not put them to work for you and watch your traffic build.
