Now that October and Halloween are over, you should set your mind on some new targets for the rest of the year. If you are the type of marketer that likes to jump back and forth between offers, and ready to take advantage of the incoming onslaught of new holiday shoppers… then here are a few ideas for you to start putting your efforts towards!
No matter who is going to win the seat for the White House, there is sure to be plenty of attention, drama and search queries towards each of the candidates. There are plenty of ways that you can start making money. The easiest and what I assume most affiliate networks will take advantage of, is POLLS and ZIP/EMAIL offers. “Should McCain/OBama have Won the Election?“… there are plenty of ways these polls can be swung or reworded… but people will either be happy or angry about the decision, and it may be easy to grab their Vote once again.
Not many people think about Thanksgiving as a way to make money… but the opportunities are still there. The biggest idea around Thanksgiving, is cooking. How many people are going to search online for those holiday recipes and special ingredients. If you have a product or service that can target to this audience, you can flourish heavily over the next two month. Other ideas include, grocery coupons, thanksgiving costumes and travel (bringing families together).
Ah yes, the official holiday season starts on Black Friday, when everyone rushes out to buy a ton of cheap crap they don’t need. Not only can you get great deals on Black Friday… but more importantly, you should study what other companies are promoting and selling out of fast. Even if you can create an online store, or sell the actual product, create an information blog/web site and you can still cash in.
Christmas is Coming
The biggest shopping season of the year is upon us, and if you aren’t getting ready now… then you may miss out. Start your research now on finding what the hot products are going to be, and throw up a blog dedicated to that product. Start cranking out the articles and getting your content in the search engines. You may just end up with a free listing on the first page or two in Google!
New Years Resolutions
Even if you missed Halloween, aren’t planning to bank on Thanksgiving… and don’t have any ideas for Christmas… you must take advantage of New Years Resolutions! I’m sure many of you are already planning to lose a few pounds or kick some bad habits once the year ends! Weight loss, quit smoking/drinking, improve dating, get out of debt… you name it,… people are going to be spending millions on their new year’s resolutions and you should be there with what they are looking for.
This holiday season, are you going to be the one spending a ton of money… or receiving!? How are you planning to take advantage of the potential profits sitting before you over the next two months. Please also feel free to post any ideas or events that I may have missed.
