One of the best ways to draw traffic to your blog is to post a contest or giveaway that keeps people coming back for more. Today Garry Conn posted a review of the Joost television software on his blog.

Joost is service that provides free TV on your computer. to join Joost you must have an invite from an existing user. Garry Conn made a post stating that he was setting up an exchange where Joost users can get and give invitations. The resulting comments and traffic were awesome, and he retained new readership for the next few days from Joost wannabes.

Contests can be anything that you can imagine, as long as people don’t have to pay money to enter.

    It has been a while since you gave away some free stuff here. Anything in the works?
