Creative ways to promote affiliate products?

    Does anyone have any creative ideas for product promotion? I know you can send off emails to your list or put a banner on your blog...it would be nice to have more ideas though. Such as promoting offline or maybe having contests/giveaways.

    Your question is very general and requires some clarification before it could be accurately answered, unless of course you want people to shout out random terms like CPC, CPA, AdNetworks, etc.

    Is this your of product, or is this some ones affiliate program that you are looking to make money from?

    What kind of resources do you have in order to promote it? Do you have a website? Are you willing to invest money into your promotion strategy?

    offline promoting such as advertising in newspapers and other print media has done well for me in affiliate marketing, but you need to know your demographics in order to make the most out of these sources

    As others have mentioned, we need to know the product or website niche to give you a good answer. There are a variety of strategies and tactics you can use to promote affiliate products -- but they won't work well for every niche...

    I left it vague on purpose just so I could get a variety of answers, but I did mean promoting other ppl's products and not my own. I guess some methods could also work for both other's and your own products.

    What products do you usually promote? Right now I am an affiliate for the IM and relationship niches.

    PPC includes advertising on facebook right?

    offline advertising is interesting to me....it's just a matter of targeting the right audience and it works a bit differently than online.
