What is a lead magnet?
Content. Onpage (title, description, photo, internal link); offpage (backlink, social)
-> top rank google
I believe that great hard work stands by websites that are ranked high on Google. It is the result of productive marketing work and SEO. And of course, raising the brand awareness as well.

I will definitely recommend below mentioned set up if you want to rank your website on any niche (ranking period ofcourse depends on niche and keyword competitiveness):
- Fresh updated unique content (atleast weekly)
- Profile of that website on all major social networks (mainly G+,FB,Twitter,Pinterest,Instagram,Youtube)
- Try to post viral content on all this social networks (helps in traffic as well as brand promotion as well as ranking)
- Backlinks from only verified high branded sites (atleast PR-7-9 ) (Build only 40-60 every month works like a charm)
- Backlinks from Parasite sites (2016 new SEO method)
- Create and promote videos (Today videos are the latest trends as well as its helps on ranking too)
- Viral Social shares of your posts (pretty self explanatory)
Hope this helps
There is nothing like that to rank a website fast. There are two options short term and long term. For short term you can rely on PPC and with good optimized PPC campaign you can get quick leads but for the long term objective SEO would be a good option but again you need to invest time and money for that. A good SEO can't be fast. If you are looking for long lasting results then you need to focus on SEO.
