1. Participate in chat rooms related to product you're reselling. Start a conversation with a person without trying to sell to them. Later on, while you are chatting, mention product you're reselling.
2. Create a free ebook with advertisement and link of your affiliate web site. The subject of free ebook should draw your target audience to down- load it. Also submit it to some ebook directories.
3. Start your own affiliate program directory. Join a large number of affiliate programs and list them all in a directory format on your web site. Then just advertise your free affiliate program directory.
4. Write your own affiliate program ads. If all other affiliates use same ads you do, that does not give you an edge over your competition. Use a different ad to give yourself an advantage over all other affiliates.
5. Use a personal endorsement ad. Only use one if you've actually bought product or service for affiliate program. Tell people what kind of benefits and results you've received using product.
6. Advertise product you're reselling in your signature file. Use an attention getting headline and a good reason for them to visit your affiliate site. Make sure your sig file doesn't go over 5 lines.
7. Join a web ring. It should attract same type of people that would be interested in buying product you're reselling. You could also trade links on your own with other related web sites.
