You can also collaborate and ask experts in your niche questions.
As usual, to join discussion boards, go to Google and type in the search bar
“your niche” + “forum”
Join the forums, engage other people in the forums and build credibility. After building a following, the people will come to you.
Quora and WikiAnswers
These are platforms for submitting answers to people in the community in search for answers. You can also ask questions and have other people answer you. This is an amazing bonus for relevant qualified traffic.
To start with Quora and Wiki, sign up with Quora and Wiki. After that, build up your profile. If you know answers to given questions, answer them. As usual, Rinse and Repeat.
Another way to get serious traffic is from social media. After creating serious social media followings, you can drive them to your content hence traffic for your site. Social media is a nice way to build authority and explode your brand.
Social media is pretty much self explanatory. First, sign up with various social media platforms. After that, create a following and engage with your followers. Link also to Quora Answers. As usual, repeat.
Bonus Ninja Strategy: Word of Mouth
Ha! Your tongue is an underrated tool too. This is a nice way to interact with people in the community. To start this strategy, you might need some business cards to distribute. You can also schedule and attend niche related events.
And that’s it. After this, watch your traffic hit the roof.
