I also run a human edited directed squarely aimed at affiliate marketers. All the advice has been good thus far promoting directories. For each new directory I launch I join as many related forums as possible to reach the widest audience of users who may be interested in utilizing my services. I also find it beneficial to strike up strategic partnerships with site owners who have a lot of traffic by providing them an exclusive forum or the like at my site. If you're very happy with a site or service and wish to obtain a link from it you can also engage the site owner in posting your testimonial at his/her site which they will usually agree to. The rewards of this can be very beneficial.
