Offer an Award,
I've seen this actually work for many creative entrepreneurs. Most of you have seen those little award graphics on web sites. They are given to the blog site by another blog site owner to reward the web site for a specific reason. They usually link back to the site that has given the award.
These acknowledgment award are drawing tons of traffic to a website. The reason is because all the sites who get the awards are linking right back to them by posting the award on their site.
So, what is stopping you from creating an award for website?
1. You could easily create an online form for your site so other people can enter to qualify for the award. Then judge all the entrees and pick a winner. You send them the award graphic with a link included. So they can post it on their web site. Now they're linking your web site.
2. Give an award for any reason you feel is suitable to your business. Your website might offer outstanding and original content award, or best marketing techniques used.
This unique marketing technique can bring in thousands of hits a month- try it out and let me know how it works out for you.
