    Look for other opportunities and come back to your boss asking if they can match that pay. If not, assess if compensation is your number 1 priority, if so, take the other offer.

    Ask why, or ask how you can achieve what they feel would deserve the raise or move on to bigger and better things

    Definitely ask for feedback from your manager about why you were turned down. As for clear goals / steps that you can take to have a raise be reconsidered in the future. If you're not thrilled with their answer then you'll want to look inward to see if you want to stay with your position.

    Pay attention to the success (or failing) of the company and your part in it.

    Job hunt, unless there was solid good reason for no raise. Hunt, the company looks at you like a resource, do the same to a company.
