    I've seen quite a few posts on here mentioning that method x is saturated now, and that back in the "day", people were earning x amounts from that method.

    Obviously I don't expect anyone to post all the details on the next up and coming methods, but maybe a few clues ?

    Only thing I know is that CPA is hot nowadays :D, try to come up with your own methods and always when you are going to use some publicly shared method, twist it up to lessen the competition you will get.

    This is exactly what I was wondering. All the easily accessible methods seem oversaturated right now. I feel like the fat school kid at the back of the dinner hall. There's fuck all left to eat except cam wanking perverts...

    I'm building up some white hat shit, blogs, doing some article marketing etc but finding a quick money earner for beer tokens isn't easy.

    see, the angle I'm looking is the Obama angle. What I mean by that is whether or not his policies are going to cause an economic shift or even a new market of some kind (because of new laws/regulations , or the suspension/removal of old ones) ?

    well, just for the sake of argument, Obama for example believes in the right of abortion (not that I'd use that to make money), so there may be more companies, I dunno, offering abortions and marketing online or something ?

    Hey if I knew what is the best new money maker I would not be sitting here. The way I look at it, here is formula for making next big thing. You know how you sometime do and you think at yourself I wish there was and easier way to do this, or I wish this would help me some how. That is your ticket to making money, think of things, methods anything that would improve peoples lifestyle. thats how all those infomecials are poping up, they had an idea and they went with it. And always remember not give up!

    I don't think America is ready for this, maybe in like 20 years, kind of weird but as marketers eventually will figure a way to make money on zebras in Africa, you'll never know.

    "All new is well-forgotten old" I can't remember who said that right now, but it's true. The world economy is going down hard, and the worst is still ahead. Especially for the United States. The next hot thing will be what it was in the beginning of IM. Selling get-rich-quick-online eBooks, "courses", and "programs" to house wives and mid-life crisis office workers. IM now days has turned into marketers selling shit to other marketers to blackhat companies like ebay, google, ect. All that is about to change. Just look around and see the number of newbies with little computer or marketing knowledge flooding the popular marketing forums. Look at all the "I need to make $xxx.xx by xx/xx which button do I push OMG!!!!11!" posts. Some people see "dumb n00bs ruining the forum". I see money.

    Yeah, but this time, there are thousands of sites waiting for them. So shouldn't we get to them before they go to some one else.

    With the amount of business closures redundancies going on, you still can't beat the make money from home niche. That is really going to go through the roof in the coming months.

    Hey del boy -

    I "DO" believe Obama is and will be a HOT topic. I agree with you - I hope it helps you go for it!

    Now I cannot predict if your niche will be HOT, or what affiliate offers you will surround it with - but there is planty of Obama stuff to sell and that will increase.

    Good or bad, whatever his legacy, you can gear your website towards the positive or the negative, but you have to have an audience for your content, so make that the priority.

    So go for it. If he decriminalizes marijuana, you have Worldwide eyeballs, if he totally goes the other way there is news there too.

    Just make it happen in 2009!!! It is February already.

    (And since you asked, I'll give you another one... "Anything Green" - Ecological, economical, energy saving, HEMP, etc... you may think this is saturated, but it is growing... find something and build the best around the category and make some money!)

    Same as always. White Hat will always work and will never grow old. Any market, any niche, any product. Sure, some will be more profitable than others, but in the long run, they are all winners.

    BH strategies come and go, and if you get on at the right time you'll help yourself alot, but they aren't the be all and end all of IM.

    Just wait for the next big thing to happen and jump on it as soon as possible. Positive or negative, publicity is publicity, and people will always want to know =]

    To del_boy:

    I recently posted a link to a free video by Jim Edwards in which he talks about up-and-coming internet marketing trends for 2009. It's actually quite informative. Check it out.

    Here is the link for the video:

    Agreed man - that is a start, there is no lack of coins, t-shirts, Newspaper headlines now and last month, even the election paraphernalia itself will only increase in value.

    Right now Cookie Stuffing is the in thing. I can't see the CPA networks lasting for long, I would try to jump out of leads and try selling stuff.

    If you have a good basic PPC model, that method will last you a lifetime - PPC will just get hotter and it can never, and will never die off.

    IMO, no offense as money IS made..., but PPC is only as good as your Visa card - Plus, management of good programs is a skill nowadays. That's a lot of upkeep I think.

    Good organic seo, once implemented, has little cost, can last for years and years, and - You can click on my organic link on that first page of Gaggle as many times as you wish, and it still does not cost me an additional dime.

    I believe nothing is an 'end-all' on the Internet - Anyone with history online has learned this a few times now...
