    Hey Guys,


    I know some of you won't do this but for the ones who are interested in putting some work - Here's an idea I had this morning while having my cofee & reading news online.

    I came across an article talking about Swine Flu(H1N1) ; Obama is on a mission to promote the vaccine. If you take a look @ Big G trends, you'll see this :

    PHP:
    http://www.google.com/trends?q=Swine+Flu
    As you can see, traffic about Swine flu is increasing like crazy. Why not monetize this? One might ask, "How the f*#$ can I promote my products with this"?

    You have 2 options.

    Option 1 - Create a product(eBook, Pharmaceutical, supplement) about Swine flu and get affiliates to promote it. Seeing the way things are going now, people are more aware of how serious it is. You might even want to go with the "Swine flu vaccine is a conspiracy, here's how to get rid of swine flu the natural way" or "Forget the Flu Shot, Here?s How You REALLY
    Prevent the Flu. Are flu shots really worth the trouble? Before getting a flu shot, I strongly advise you to read this eye-opening report first. You will discover the dangerous side effects of flu vaccines and what you can do to prevent the flu naturally. To get instant access to your report, simply enter your email address below." It's fairly simple to make money with this.

    Option 2 - Promote Someone else's product by mentioning how good the product is preventing Swine Flu. ie : "This product really helped me get rid of Swine Flu" Create a Landing page, get as many e-mails as possible, find a product and e-mail the sh*# out of the list, profit.


    Discuss? :)




    Good Luck!

    Why share your market?

    I don't understand that!

    Why not just say WTF and take action on it.

    Because Sharing is Caring :) I'm already monetizing a similar niche and don't have time to spend on something else! The train is passing by and I won't board it - Why not share the idea with the community? :)

    i actually made a blog in may for this purpose. have not done too much with it. adsense pays out shit for those keywords but there may be other things to promote.

    The swine flu niche has already been used by many ppl, and it hasn't appeared in the news much lately. Also for asian traffic, u'll have to get offers that sell to asia which are pretty hard to find.

    I'm currently working on something for the Asian market. I do have a lot of quality products but I'm not ready for the demand.(I'll save that for another thread) until then, I'm sure there are a bunch of people who would be glad to monetize Asians I mean come on - They're 100 trizaillion people there : Music stars are all aiming for Japan, etc because of the number of people by sqft there.

    Where I am, the swine flu is in the news like crazy. It's because winter season is coming up and it's going to get cold here. I hear about it almost every day on the news and there's lines out the doors for shots.

    I just waited (no joke) five hours and 15 minutes to get a shot.

    The line was insane.

    What a nice guy you are for sharing that. Sounds like a pretty good idea that would work with some hustle.

    Just as a general tip....watch the headlines in the news each day and get ideas. If it is getting a lot of attention, you can monetize it. Makes no difference if 1,000 other people are, you can still make money! Good luck.
