If you’re in the business of shipping out physical products, get in touch with other marketers selling products in your niche. Ask them to include flyers advertising your products and services in the shipments they make and in return do the same for them.
Try eBay where you can find related marketers selling many products.

Top marketing sites may not be up to the other ideas previously mentioned in this article, eespecially if you’re still new and unknown. But they may be open to the idea of interviewing them.

Creating and promoting articles together is a great way in which you can direct traffic to your website. For example, you could share 5 tips on a topic related to your niche and one of you writes on them.
Either way you’ll still get traffic because your already established partner will help distribute the content by posting on his blog.

Get other people to direct traffic to your website by creating rebrandable reports. This is whereby you allow other marketers to alter and change affiliate links in a report to their affiliate links, meaning that whoever distributes the report also has an opportunity to make money of it.
