    You can try media buying also!

    Just takes some skills and testing!

    Give it a thought!

    Good luck buddy!

    Depending on your budget & knowledge of your customer
    value, you could try CPA marketing where you pay people
    per optin/download of your lite version.

    Thanks Victor,

    The last time we tried CPA, we did so with Clickbooth... not a good experience.

    Do you know of any media buying sites? or CPA platforms that do not require huge retainers?

      DierectCPV.com has a $100 min ad budget

      LeadImpact.com has a $200 min ad budget

      TrafficVance.com has a $1000 min ad budget

      There's also,

      AdOnNetwork.com

      MediaTraffic.com

      I can't recall which of the two aforementioned platforms require a $50 min ad budget to get started, but one of them is the cheapest platform I've seen yet.

      All of these networks offer the ability for advertisers to run CPA, CPV, PPV campaigns and the like. I'm actually, researching PPV and CPV ad campaigning for a personal project, and was amazed to learn that you can bid on targeted keywords or URL's to display (pop-up ads) for as low as 1.5 cents per display. If done correctly, you can reach targeted buyers, build huge lists, and attain amazing ROI's with these methods very inexpensively.

      Hope that helps.

      All the Best,

    If I exclude free stuff and email marketing, it has returned one of the highest ROI we have ever had.

    Cheers,
