The Unbiased Review Finder specifically searches consumer-driven product review networks, forums and communities in virtually every market so that you can find out what real customers have to say about a product you might be interested in promoting.

Leads Leap: Kenneth Koh has been at the helm of this affiliate website for quite a while now and from personal experience I have to say is one the better places to advertise your program. Leads are the main point of this site; never short on information and free promotion tools, you earn credits by clicking through ads either by email or onsite at the main website or his blog. Recently he added a widget which you can see on my blog; this credits you every time someone clicks through to read a post or ad. You can of course upgrade and really connect to thousands of leads that are in your industry.
