    Congrats on getting the contract!

    I'm sure others will come along and give you some great ideas (I'm new to this myself) but a few ideas that come to mind would be:

    Youtube/Video Marketing
    Forum Marketing
    You can also (by outsourcing or doing it yourself) guest post on different blogs and get traffic from their sites.

    Hope this helps and congrats again on the contract :) .

    You should definitly start writing articles and submit them to ezinearticles.com

    Articles are a wonderful way to bring FREE targeted traffic to your website, and it gives you quality backlinks, wich can improve your search engine rankings.


    Hope this helps!

    I agree with all of the above. I still use articles to drive good traffic to my sites. I also have a few yahoo answers accounts and they ae indexed fairly quickly. You might want to farm some of it out. I have a few local single moms and college kids that I have taught it to and I pay them a fair amount to do it.

    BTW congrats on the contract ;)

    You should do some free social media marketing (as opposed to paid ads like Facebook ads).

    Depending on the niche of the companies you are working for, you can promote on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram, LinkedIn, Stumbleupon, etc.

    It is a great way to deliver quality traffic that is precisely targeted.

    How many of these articles do you have to post and how long must you wait before you start seeing some results?

    Thanks

    Other than creating a Linked In profile, is there a particular approach you take to getting the word out on Linked In to generate traffic?
