Just like any internet marketing product, it is good to understand your target niche before choosing a traffic source. To target a broad audience you can place ads on Craigslist and other classified sites.
If you are targeting the internet marketing space, the Warrior Forum and countless black hat marketing sites can be a good source of forum traffic. To get customers from these sites it is easiest to just update your signature file, begin posting your services and join the conversation.
Must Be Available On Giant Networks:
The best source of traffic and customers for this type of service is actually on the sites that you will be driving fans to. To put it more clearly, find your customers on Facebook, Google + and Pinterest.
To provide an example, there are hundreds of small business professionals that have rudimentary Facebook pages and websites; with only a handful of likes. Chiropractors, dentists, REALTORS, accountants and many other business professionals have a minor presence on Facebook, Google + or Twitter, but know that they want more followers. In addition, local businesses and local brands often work hard to drive people to their social accounts and may be good targets for your services.
To find these prospective clients, just login to Facebook and search for the profession that you want to target. Like the page of your prospect and reach out to the page administrator. Because these professionals have a limited understanding of social media, they often are much more receptive to paying premium pricing to make their business look popular.
Be Available On LinkedIn And Discussion Groups:
Another source of good traffic for this type of service are LinkedIn groups. To attract buyers from LinkedIn search for and join discussion groups where your prospective buyers may be hanging out. After you have been accepted to the group, post and update with a link to your sales page.
Once you have made the initial post, it is time to share it with all of the other groups that have accepted you as a member. To do this, click the share option below the post. Choose the share to groups option and begin entering the names of the other groups that have accepted your membership.
This technique can actually be a fantastic source of traffic and buyers to your site. Every morning, LinkedIn generates an automatic email that goes out group members that have chosen to accept updates.
The site generally pulls the updates that were posted between 5:30 and 8:30 am Eastern Standard Time and includes those in the email. By posting and sharing your update in the morning, your update can potentially get mailed to thousands of target customers.
