1. Join Forums and Discussions
Find a forum that are related to the product you promote.The forum you choose should have high page rank. Once you sign up in the forum the first and foremost thing you should do is setting up the signature line (where you can put up your name and affiliate link).

Do not spam, simply write reasonable response to other people queries, when people reads your answer they will likely to see your signature too and may give a visit to your site.

I have never thought of Social Networking Sites to promote my affiliate marketing programs until I come across an article which made a mention of using face book application for Affiliate Marketing. The huge traffic generated by these Social Networking Sites is really a boon to Affiliate Marketing. Build relationship with people on Social Networking Sites and slowly begin to promote your product to your followers and friends.

You  should be very conscious of audience you are targeting through Social Networking Sites and also very authentic about what you are promoting. Build trust with your followers and friends by showing them the benefits to buy the products you promote.

3. Writing Articles
This is one of the way to drive traffic to your site. you can post articles related to the products you promote. Keep in mind the content should be good and never emphasize on the quality of a particular product as success or failure is determined through it. Do not forget to include your affiliate link in resource box or author box.

Submit each article you write to different directories, I personally prefer these article directories.

4. Your Own Website or Blog
This is the most common way to promote affiliate programs and many publishers make their entire living through Affiliate Marketing on their website or blog. By just placing an affiliate link or banner on your site will not make you rich, you must learn the proper way to promote the affiliate products.

5. E-mail Marketing
This is one of the best way for promoting affiliate products. E-mail marketing does not seems as profitable as it was once. If you have a large number of E-mail list or subscriber to your website, you can send them Newsletter with an affiliate link regularly. Make sure that the Newsletters should not look like you are promoting something.

6. Pay Per Click Advertising
There are many publishers who have become extremely successful using PPC Advertising. Ad words and yahoo search marketing are the most popular PPC programs. You can also advertise your website and also promote your affiliate website. But do not forget to use your affiliate link.

You should be very careful in using PPC Advertising. If you are in a competitive niche you will certainly spends more than two dollars per click. It may bring you a lot of sales or it may not.
