Connect with your suppliers.
Use guest posts and Content.
If someone forwards or recommends you content ask to exchange links.

Whilst we can see that there are good practces to link building there are also some bad. Properly constucted Link building is essential to a Website but bad practices can be very damaging, especially in the early stages of a new site. Properly done Link Building takes time and effort, there is no shortcut or easy solution. Beware of any Website that promisses you otherwise.
