Not until you can prove that you've done some research on your own and aren't expecting to be spoon fed when the answers are so easy to find and abundantly available.

So how is that going for you?
its going ok, its slowed down a bit and i kind of want to find other alternatives to marketing to a large amount of people
you will find a variety of methods that we use with some of the most popular ones being articles and Squidoo.... I personally like to use the One Week Marketing Plan whenever I want to promote a particular item or product.
Since you've mentioned some general methods, I'll add some general things to your list of things to investigate. Let me know if that's what you're looking for:
Blog commenting with sig link
You already seem to know about forum participation with sig links
If you can be more specific about what you're looking for (such as ways to drive traffic, ways to monetize, or whatever) and what you've specifically tried, we can better assist you.
Well, as far as anything else, I would like a better way to drive traffic to my affiliate website. What does squidoo do?

Like I said, you have to do your own footwork first. If after you've tried hard with something and still can't figure it out, then consider asking about it.
Videos, articles and forums (social networking) are your top 3 free marketing methods.
Free advertising is not necessarily fast traffic generation but it does work. Just applying those 3 above with the right product/service and keyword research and you'll get quality traffic. Buyers, well that just depends on what you are offering.
With the right biz offline marketing will work wonders also.
my favorite methods to getting traffic to my website is
ezine solo ads
My favorite method is to give away free stuff. People love free things. If your site is attractive after they get something free and get to your site you can usually get them to look over what you have to offer. For me free is king.
