1. You may consider trying to write articles and blogs. Of course, the theme should be relevant to your business. That way you will be able to talk about your business without imposing. Make sure you create a good and appealing headline because it may attract people to start reading the article. Let the article be interesting, rich in content and don’t copy articles from other sites. Write articles of different length and at least once in a week. All of your articles should be tagged and described so that people can easily find them. Create good connections with other bloggers and build good links.
2. It would be great if you place call for actions in your articles. If people feel like you are interested in their opinion, they will more likely going to buy your products and promote you with their friends. If they leave comments, reply to them. There is no need to reply on all comments, but if you feel there is something you have to say; do it. Interact on other sites and blogs.

3. Classic advertising is also a good way to increase website traffic, but you may need some money for it. Pay per click is a method where you actually buy clicks for your page to get a better position on search engines. Printed mediums, such as local newspapers, yellow pages, brochures, fliers and so on are also good ideas. Find places to leave your materials, such as local restaurants, library, gas station, and definitely think about stickers for your car to make it a moving advertise.
4. Don’t forget social media. They are a great way to promote your brand and increase website traffic. Create your profile on several media, such as Facebook, Tumblr or Twitter and be active there.
5. Finally, even if you attracted people to your site, there is no use if you don’t keep them there. Make sure your page is well designed, simple and easy to navigate. Let it be updated and don’t forget first class pictures. If it is necessary, hire a professional photographer. It will cost, but no doubt it will pay off.
