Always check the forum’s policies before posting about your product and trying to recruit affiliates, many forums allow this and it is a common practice. Beside forum, you can also do the same on Facebook group, Skype group or Linkedin group.
Social media – Social media has great credibility. It’s often, affiliates want to know you more detail via social media, they trust you and love to promote your product because you’ve connected with them via social media like Facebook or Twitter. If you can build a presence for yourself on popular networks like Facebook, Twitter, and others, this can be a good way to recruit affiliates.
Personal contact – Personally contact the affiliates. You can contact them via email, instant messaging (Skype, Facebook chat, etc). Don’t do much ado! Just briefly explain who you are and your product details along with the JV page url.
Buy their product or service – It makes you easier to get in touch with your affiliates. It’s better to have connection or discussion with them before you ask them to promote your product.
