Mike Hill runs a very successful ezine classified ad service that has brought in results. Advertisers can get their ad placed in 20 newsletters sent to 25,000 readers for $10. Visit http://hop.clickbank.net/?glenpalo/cashgalore for more information.
The least successful form of advertising for me in 2001 was use of "safelists" of opt-in email addresses. Usually, safelist operators let you email to their database of email addresses for a nominal fee. The fee is either an annual or monthly fee. Some people say they have been successful using safelists. While I did not get same results, I found that use of safelists was a good way to test ad titles (email subject).
MyLISTmaker proved to be an exception. Because of cost of joining MyLISTmaker Gold and, I believe, quality of program, revenue generated from promoting my products more than made up for upfront cost of MyLISTmaker. Also, MyLISTmaker has ability to generate a separate stream of revenue for those that actively promote service. When planning your advertising for 2002, MyLISTmaker is worth a look at http://www.mylistmaker.com/?460019
A number of clickthrough or click exchange programs brought additional visitors to my websites. The basic premise is if you visit websites, you will receive visitors to yours in return. The click exchange programs take several different forms such as popup windows, exit windows, start pages etc. The best collection of these free advertising programs can be found in a downline club called MyECom. I joined and use MyECom because of extensive list of free places to advertise. There is extensive support through one of associated groups.

In summary, to improve your results, review what you have done in past. Focus on methods that bring in best results. If you did not try different advertising methods in 2001, try new ones in 2002. That way at end of year, you'll be able to compare results.
