    How about email on your list

    I can't believe I forgot that. Now am unable to edit it...
    If its email marketing, just mention it in your post please and select 'other'

    That's the only thing we can do now

    Review sites. Find at least two competing products and set up a site around reviewing them. If it converts well enough, send some PPC traffic from people searching for the product to the review.

    Hey Dan, how do you 'test' the waters initially and know that it converts well.

    Lots of ways. If the program's on a big network like CJ, they tell you its network performance. You can make some forum posts, list it in a marketplace, or run a limited PPC test. Anything to get a couple hundred visits to see what the response will be before running a full-blown campaign. I already have a number of high-traffic websites I can use to send traffic to new ones, which is a free way to test, but that's not available to everyone.

    I love writing articles, blogging, and setting up Hubpages and Squidoo lenses. Review sites work the best, but here lately Ezine Articles isn't too keen on letting you put a link to a review site in your article.

    Anyway, these are my favorites!

    Its hard to choose one method of directing traffic, i tend to dabble with many techniques. Forum marketing is very easy and can be done whilst learning new things. PPC can be highly profitable but i tend to start of small this allows me to get a feel for the potential of the site.

    SEO / Blogging and Bum marketing are two very good ways also. Admittedly i cant choose just one technique, i feel if i did i would be limiting my traffic

    Tried adwords when I first started and lost several 1000's and then stopped it. Can't seem to get that down. Now just using emails and blasters

    Article marketing; though EZA seem to be going thru a picky phase at the moment. Forum marketing can be quite good too if you find the right forum!
