Tell someone about it.

Rather than asking such a basic broad question, how about telling us the methods you've tried, where you've seen success, and then see if that is in correlation to what others are doing.

Asking "how do you get traffic" is too broad of a question. It would be like me asking "how does a plane work". I can give you the basics that an engine powers the plane pushing air over the wings and that makes it fly - but there's more to it than just that.

Becoming a part of the social networking websites is one of the best ways of getting more traffic to the website. In order to get the best response, it is important to be receptive to the posts made by other people as well. Being social is the only thing that will help in building a stronger network.

The obvious ways:

Advertise via word of mouth.
Mail postcards to local businesses.
Buy small newspaper ads in local papers.
Post fliers at local community centers.

Advertise on facebook, twitter, and youtube.
Link swap with other websites.

Do said local methods work for online sites? I'm really curious as I've never tried it myself. I suspect this won't work for ecommerce based sites.

adult images on your website. That always get hits. Kidding, it can take a long time as you need to build a good client base slowly. I myself like slow growth instead of fast growth.

Advertising and promoting a product or service in any local businesses directories or small media websites works good.

Off and on page SEO for sure. If you have enough fund, PPC will help a lot.

Assuming it's for the business on your signature, the best way is either spend 1000s of dollars and do a PPC campaign all over the web or market your brand on a personal level. Approach businesses that might need your services, approach people in the industry, word of mouth is very powerful.
