To get constant traffic you need to get higher rankings for competitive keywords. I just watch 6 of my competitors for what links they are building and reach out where I can to ask for reviews.
I have actually built my startup to do exactly that. Monitor Backlinks (http://monitorbacklinks.com)
I don't use a lot of tools for my startup, just this ones:
-intercom.io - really great to schedule automated messages and it can be synced with your database and have custom fields. Very easy to setup
-Google Apps (analytics,gmail, webmaster tools)
-Monitor Backlinks (my own startup) to build links to my website
