To be able to generate some income while learning more, I decided I would start up simple in IM with the creation of an affiliate site. After browsing through Clickbank products, I picked a specific diet that has good monthly searches without too much competition.
I put some articles from ezinearticls up there, including an article linking to my product and some additional recipes, rewritten.
A lot of people suggested forum and blog advertising to drive traffic as a main source of visitors. However, I wonder what is the best way to do this, without being considered as spam. What are the best ways to get your site out there, without resorting to spam? Signatures in forums are in my opinion the best idea, but a lot of forums have signatures disabled. And how would I go about getting my website out there on blogs? How would i go from commenting on a simple blog entry to linking my website? Maybe I'm a bit too skeptical by thinking people actually passionate about the diet will not be interested in a combination of some articles..
Any information or experience with forum / blog marketing would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
