Can anybody provide insight into the most cost-effective way to drive traffic to your website?
Niki your question really is too broad - there have been many books written on the subject. You will get a much better response if you can make your question more specific and tell us a little bit about your website.
There are many ways of driving traffic and as told by Fergal it is too broad topic to cover. Can you provide some details about what type of site you have and what type of traffic you are looking for?
My top 3 cost effective methods online are:
1. Forum Marketing
2. Google Alerts and Omgili.com
3. Social Bookmarketing
Whatever strategies you decide to use, make sure that you test and measure and don't forget adding in your time as labour costs too.

Find out where your market are looking and position yourself in front of them.
There are many traffic driving strategies and a planned, integrated use of a number of them is a great option. That said different strategies work better in different markets so first up know your market, what they look for, where they hang out on line and then put yourself in front of them.
You can check out your top competitors see what keywords they are targeting (try SEOQuake for this), what kind of traffic rank (try Alexa.com which may also give some keyword and demographic info) and backlinkwatch.com to find the backlinks they have.
Then set about doing what they're doing but BETTER!
Tecknowoman has shared the best piece of marketing advice you'll ever receive. Find your audience and get in front of them. Try to put yourself in your audience's shoes and figure out where they're hanging out (online and offline).
If you're selling rock memorabilia, find forums discussing this style of music and interact with the audience. Add value to the conversation, don't spam the forums with offers from your e-commerce store.
Also identify appropriate forums and website that are using Google AdSense and use Adwords Placement to place text and banner ads in them.
Do the same with blogs - comment on blog posts and add value to the conversation.
Social Media - Twitter and Facebook about your industry making sure you're providing quality information to others.

To drive traffic to website, there are numerous ways. Eventually, it is based on the kind of site and the sort of traffic you are targeting.
It's all about building your website, creating good content, optimizing your website, then building relevant links to your site.
If your site doesn't have good content or isn't optimized at all, link building will give you limited results. If you build a bunch of non-relevant links, you will get limited results.
My favorite way of building relevant links and traffic is through commenting on blogs.
