I am looking for responsive ways to advertise my MLM opportunity for free or cheaply and ways that my downline can duplicate.
I have tried:
1) Google ads - too expensive for most good keywords
2) Search Engines - most affiliate/referral links do not get ranked although I do have my own site I work on
3) Safelists - a waste of time?
4) Yahoo groups - the same?
5) Hitexchanges - used to work but now too many and too many auto-surfs?
6) Ezine advertising - can work if targetted but solo ads can be expensive and other ads get lost.
So where does that leave the newbie wanting to build an online business
