    All of these are good to bring traffic to your offer,

    but even most important is that people TRUST YOU.

    I've been promoting affiliate / CPA offers for over 16 years using email, so email gets my vote.

    More specifically, I use 3rd part email data. Which data that the users have shown an interest in a specific vertical (niches) and provided permission to receive messages from third parties. You get the opt-in record for all users and it's 100% can-spam compliant.

    There are those that complain about spam filters or open rates.

    You can test your inbox placement and if you have any mail going to spam folders, you can test the different parts of the message (back-end, IP/domain reputation, body/subject) and figure out what is causing it and correct it.

    Regardless how good or bad your open rate is, you can resend messages to the users that don't open and increase the overall number of users that eventually opened your message. You can literally do this over and over for a single message...resend to those that didn't open from the last send of users that didn't open.

    Is this a trick question?

    Hands down, it's email list. Why?

    If you have an email list you have a captive audience of people that have "qualified themselves" as wanting to hear from you in a specific niche or marketplace. Assuming you are sending an affiliate offer that targeted to their wants/problems/desires . . . it doesn't get any better than this.

    Most marketers would do well to try all of the alternatives you've mentioned . . . don't limit yourself to just one strategy.

    But with an email list you're a step ahead of the other methods and can build a relationship of trust with your subscribers, give them value at any time, and let them experience the quality of your offerings.

    PPC is the best technique with affiliate marketing products. With PPC you can bid on most relevant keywords related to the product you are trying to promote. For example, if you search for a certain type of jewelry and the particular online shop is bidding on relevant keywords.

    Email list, Pay per click and SEO works great with affiliate marketing. These three are one of my favorite ways to generate good leads and I highly recommend to use them if you are in affiliate marketing.

    Steve B just told you the best thing to do.

    Whatever traffic method your using, collect their emails before you send them to any affiliate offer or all your doing is building someone else's list with your hard earned traffic.

    Remember your email list is yours, you control it.

    It doesn't matter what changes happen online, you still have your list.

    Always build your emails list. You can use all the methods you mentioned in your question.

    Depending on your budget would determine you best course of actions.

    But concentrate on building you list because "The Money Is In The List"

    Is this a trick Spartan?

    You have been online for a little while now and I think you know which one works well for you.

    But regarding Email Marketing...

    This is a form of marketing yes but it's more of a 'secondary' level of marketing.

    An opt in form all by itself is worthless, useless without a traffic method.

    I keep seeing over and over...new and even Veteran Marketers replying email is the best form of marketing when in truth...what ever you do to build a list (on the front end) is the real sauce.

    Email is just a channel to give value (and increase conversions).

    Now before all of you hardcore list builders start telling me the great importance of email marketing...

    It's still secondary to traffic / marketing strategies.

    Because without traffic, there will be no list.

      Thats right man ,also with email list you must need a traffic source in place to build it .In this moment i use fb groups to get some subscribers but its not a secure method as i am always afaid of social media .I must find a better way of traffic to build a list
