is a nice way of putting affiliate marketing in perspective. Bum marketing commonly refers to marketing techniques that require the least amount of effort and money. While I think this particular form or marketing works, it still requires you to get out there and work on your sites.Remember your "job" as an affiliate is to "presell" not sell...

Bum Marketing is all about making quick affiliate sales after identifying a specific targeted market using no more than well-written, keyword-rich articles that appeal to a specific pool of hungry buyers. The successful Bum Marketer works to locate people in total buy mode. People who are desperately seeking immediate solutions and answers to their problems. Bum Marketing is a lot like regular Article Marketing except the primary focus is on making money quickly selling affiliate products as opposed to building back links and lists.

Ezine used to show up high for loads of terms, maybe not so much now. Those high rankings are still being taken up by authority sites though. A certain video site comes to mind. Web 2.0 sites can still be seen high up.
I think there are many ways you could apply the idea of bum marketing outside of the search engines. I think the idea of bum marketing is still very much alive and always will be.
