Interesting that blog commenting is listed. I find the most helpful when trying to get backlinks to a site I'm promoting vs using it as an affiliate marketing approach since most site don't allow links in the comment itself but only through the "name".

Hi Dave,
Very interesting! Thanks for sharing very important information with us. For success in affiliate marketing, you need to pick up a niche product or services that you like and people are interested in. Create a website or blog and place a company’s banner or logo and drive traffic to it.

Hi Dave,

The one thing you got right is that forum marketing is a good place to get free traffic and sales.

I have done this for years now and can recommend this to others. It is very profitable once you know what you are doing and do this on a consistent basis.

Any niche will work.

I think Youtube marketing can be added to the list. The amount of traffic the kids get today when they are messing about and uploading their efforts is amazing.
