Don't get me wrong. Paid advertising is good. It can help you to get alot of people over to your website in a hurry, and you will have the chance to monetize this traffic for every visitor that you get to your site. But relying solely on paid advertising is dangerous. What if the rules change on you, and you may be in error of what a particular website's "terms of service" is, and you get shutdown?

You should always strive to mix up your advertising sources so that one strategy doesn't ruin your entire internet business. For your safety, do alot of free marketing. Get out there and do some article marketing. Do forum marketing. Do video marketing. Do blog marketing. Promote your RSS feeds. Do all of these things on a weekly basis so that you can have a steady stream of new prospects and customers coming in for you.

2) Forum spamming
Don't do this. Don't ever do this. If you do this, all you're doing is taking a potentially profitable traffic source and ruining it for yourself.

Make it a point to post on forums weekly, and share your insights on how to make someone in your niche's life better.
If you spam on the forums, more than likely your account will be banned immediately. And the forum members hate this also. This benefits no one, and you won't get far in your niche when it comes to marketing to people who are excellent candidates for your product or service.
