Halloween is long gone and many have cashed in on the massive spending on candy, decorations and costumes. Christmas has now passed as well, the biggest of all holiday spending! BILLIONS of dollars were spent… did you cash in on any of it? The fourth quarter of 2009 was loaded with opportunities to make money, and we’re about to start the cycle all over again. It’s now time for New Years 2010. With New Years, comes resolutions… when everyone loves to reinvent themselves and try to better their lives. Usually this is done by spending a ton of money on crap people never end up using!
Here are some of the Top New Year’s Resolutions you can make some serious coin on in the new year.
Weight Loss / Self Improvement
This year was like no other for weight loss offers. From Acai, to flogs, to rebills to “Obeying Only One Rule“… weight loss offers and classic banner ads have been everywhere. Just because the FTC, Oprah and state attorney generals are starting to take action, don’t expect to see a huge slowdown on these advertisements. Rebills will live on and marketers will continually find a way to make money and market these offers. Why? Because people love the concept and dream of a weight loss miracle pill. With that being said… like every year, weight loss is one of the best niches to be in for money. Whether you are pushing rebills, or well known brands like P90X or GNC, there is plenty of money to be made for all by pushing weigh loss.
Spend More Time with Family
Realistically, there is only one way to spend more time with your family… and that’s by minimizing your work load. For most people, this is nearly impossible. “Make Money at Home” and “Excel Your Career” programs have always done well online. Much like the weight loss niche, many of these offers come in the form of rebills. Two examples of targeting this market is with rebill / work from home offers, or offering the viewer to excel at their current job. There are many high paying college offers for further education in nursing, criminal justice etc. (College continuation programs have proven to do very well with Facebook Ads, with proper targeting.)
When “quit smoking” comes to mind, you really only think of two ways… quitting cold turkey, or with a product like nicorette gum. The rebills have started to take over the smoking market too. The “e-cigarette” is a non-smoking cigarette alternative that is gaining a lot of attention. No matter how you try to make money in this niche, every day there are millions of smokers that want to quit and go online to search out their best solution.
Get Out of Debt
This one is easy, and right now it applies to more people than ever. “Cash Advance” and “Debt Consolidation” offers have always been a big hit online for marketers. Unfortunately the Cash Advance offers usually screws over the customer in the end, which is why they can pay out such a large commission on an easy sign up process. For those looking for more legitimate and trusted offers/companies, many financial programs like Geico and Quicken offer affiliate programs. Just do a general search on Google for “get out of debt” to see companies and ad copies are being used for this high target keyword.
Learn Something New
A lot of offers can fall into this category, but what I think of first, is learning a new language. The most popular brand out there for learning a new language is easily Rosetta Stone. Their affiliate program pays 15% commission through Commission Junction. “Learning Something New” can easily include how to make money online, blogging, career/college offers… so there is a lot to choose from.
Here are a few fun resolution facts to think about as well:
- 45% of people make one or more resolution.
- Those who set resolutions are 10X more likely to attain a goal vs. those who don’t.
- 75% keep their resolve past the first week.
- 46% keep their resolve past the first six months.
Even if your marketing efforts don’t fall into any of the following, you have a whole new year to work with… and who knows what 2010 will hold for the rest of us! Here’s to making more money then ever in the new year!
