    5 easy ways to increase website traffic(Free):

    1. Optimize your website

    You first need to make sure your website content is optimized. Otherwise, the traffic will be fleeting and only temporary.

    2. Use social media

    Once your website is prepared for more traffic, you must start driving traffic to it!

    3. Do content outreach and guest posting

    Social media is one part of the puzzle. You must also get your content in front of new audiences. 

    4. Create a system that allows you to get recurring traffic

    Over-reliance on search engines or social media for traffic can backfire. Sites lose entire search rankings, and consequently traffic, overnight. Social media algorithms change, too. With the right system, however, you are in control of your traffic and can command it at will.

    5. Repackage and re-purpose your content

    A single piece of content can be re-purposed into a dozen different pieces, and distributed to a dozen different channels, instantly increasing your reach by 12 times.

    All of these were great answers. You could also create display ads that show on websites of the digital arts field. The display ads are the cheapest of all the ad types. Also re-target to those viewers who showed interest in your offers from the first visit. Collecting emails from interested viewers and re-targeting to those viewers is the most effective and cheapest advertising method.
