Most forums dont allow advertising, affiliate directory brings very little traffic, CPC campaigns have low ROI.
On some forums as in this forum, you can announce your affiliate program to the members. Visit our webmaster marketplace section and create a thread in the Joint Venture section.
On forums that you join, you could also put a link to your affiliate program in your signature it if that forum allows signatures. Some forums as in this one requires 30 quality posts in order to gain access to the signature feature. Be sure to read the forum rules on each forum you belong to about the signature feature.
You could find some blogs in your websites niche and ask if you could write a guest blog post. Insert a link to your affiliate page in there or your website. Perhaps a client/customer will join your program.
Do you have a email list, facebook page, twitter account? If so, mention the affiliate program in there.
I hope these little tips help you a little bit out.
