Affiliate Marketing Tips – Hot Trends and Affiliate Marketing
This article is going to be a little out of the box thinking when it comes to affiliate marketing. See, most affiliate marketers simply look for a viable niche (one with a big demand) and then try to find a product in that niche to sell. And don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with this approach. I use it all the time. However, it’s NOT the only way to come up with products to sell. There is another method that can actually make you more money quicker if you know what to look out for and jump on it right away. I’m talking about Hot Trends. This article will explain.
Google Trends is a great site that Google has put together. It is essentially the top 100 trends (most searched phrases) updated every hour on the hour. Most of the trends are either political or entertainment related. But every once in a while, a hot trend pops up that has to do with a new product. Or maybe it’s an old product that for whatever reason is back in the spotlight. Many of these products have affiliate programs. Therefore, it’s a great opportunity to jump on selling it. But why? Why is this such a great way to make money?
Reason number 1 is because it IS hot at this very moment. People are talking about. People are interested in it. If it’s in the top 100, that means a lot of people. So you don’t have to worry about promoting something that isn’t going to bring you a decent amount of traffic.
Reason number 2 is even more important. See, most of these hot trends are so specific that there aren’t a lot of web pages out there targeting them. For example, one hot trend that I found the other day had only 10 competing web pages. When you have such little competition, it’s that much easier to get YOUR piece of the pie.
The downside to this system is that the trends don’t last long and usually the product will only sell for a day or two. That means you’re constantly searching for new trends. But if you have the time, and it really only takes about an hour a day, you can make quite a few sales daily if you hop on the right trend at the right time.
Certainly it’s something to consider adding to your affiliate marketing arsenal.
