There are many methods associated with affiliate promotion. Such as content marketing, email marketing, promoting affiliate on website, forums, running pay per click ad, press release and more. If you use multiple platforms to sell a product then i am pretty sure that you can maximize your profit in terms of sale.
While promoting affiliate products with your subscribers or followers i suggest you, not to perform aggressive affiliate promotion as it can also damage your reputation. If your subscriber are receiving dozens of mails then they may even unsubscribe you from their list. We have to maintain our brand reputation while promoting affiliate products.

One of my friend has promoted affiliate products through Google adwords. I found that Google adwords works very well if you target it with a right keywords to generate sale. As he also researched & sorted some of the best keywords through keyword planner to target right audience. He started his campaign with adwords and created bunch of keyword groups. Some of them have performed very well, and with some keywords he was losing money. He made profit of $700 with Google adwords. The campaign cost him $560 out of $700 which means he earned only $140. He made a profit through Google adwords but he also bared a loss of $250 with wrong keyword targeting.
At the time of promotion he haven’t removed such keywords which were not were not performing well. In ppc we have to sort such keywords that are not performing well and not leading to product conversion. This fact also applied in Facebook advertisement. You must always sort out such keyword data which are performing well and leading to conversion for your affiliate products. Before going for any paid platform always calculate percentage, risk, conversion ratio and profit. Build good strategy before moving ahead with paid campaigns.
