    Microsoft Adcenter. Some people have used 7Search and I have in the past with hardly any success, so I don't really suggest them. I do say give Adcenter a look though.

    They have been around for ten years and never, never heard anyone say they were worth spit! They do show up at Summit with a booth.

    That's cool, but I've had an awful experience with them. So I don't believe I'll try them again; however, that's my opinion.

    I hadn't used Sponsored Tweet in addition to advertising, so I can't suggest anything on that part. I have used Facebook about a year ago. I'm sure they've changed since but the traffic there was pretty good and at the time, pretty cheap compared to Adwords. Just like Adwords, you do want to make sure you know exactly who you're targeting and with what keywords. Like I said before, I hadn't used them within a year...so just keep that in mind. I've used Adcenter when I first started out and honestly, I did have a great experience with them. Didn't really get enormous traffic like I did with Adwords/Facebook; however, with the traffic I did have...I had received sales. My best advice is to try a few places and just see what works best for what you're advertising. Best of luck to you!

    If your promoting an affiliate site you might want to check it falls in line with their advertising policies.

    You could also try some PPV/CPV advertising like leadimpact, directcpv. The landing page policies are generally less strict.

    Thank you, I will have a try!

    Besides these ad campaigns, should I buy some link ads on forum or blog?

    I haven't bought ads for 8 years, am focused on program management so can't offer advice.
