    Recruitment via Craiglist?
    Do you think that attempting to recruit affiliate's via Craigslist is an effective strategy? Although, I don't think that seasoned affiliates would look there, it might be a good place to recruit people who are not yet in the affiliate industry- maybe beginning bloggers? If so, what category would it fit in to? It's not really a "Job".... I can't decide if this is a good idea or a really bad one.

    Sounds like a really bad idea to me. Why not google to find some bloggers in your field and personally reach out to them?

    I agree, you want to find quality bloggers/potential affiliates...you probably wont find that on Craigslist. I would set up a Google Alert for blogs within your industry or try doing keyword searches.

    It's against the rules. Don't do it.

    If rules don't matter, note that "affiliate recruitment" ads get quickly flagged and deleted.

    Affiliate Recruitment via CL is not a good idea.
    Try ABW, AffSummit, etc

    On a flip side, i used to have an affilite who drove traffic from CL to his site and he made about $2-3k consistently/month from us.

    Listing affiliate opportunities in Craigslist is against their rules.

    To find affiliates, I suggest that you get involved in forum discussions in your industry. Give relevant contributions and once you develop a relationship with the forum participants, you can add links for more information about your affiliate offer.
