    Hey everyone! I've got some tips on how you can take advantage of paid programming on tv!

    1. Have you ever flipped through channels at night or in the morning and seen people advertising? It usually says "Paid Programming" as the show title. Often, after these programs air on tv, hundreds and sometimes even thousands of people go online and search for these products.

    You can make money from this by selecting a product that airs on one of these programs and making a review site. Set up a quick squidoo lens or hubpage. Even if the product doesn't have an affiliate program, bash the product and recommend another.

    Here's an example:
    2. The TV Guide channel is always advertising something. At the bottom half of the screen they scroll tv listings, but at the top, someone is usually advertising. Take a minute and check the TV guide for a product they're advertising today. Do the same thing above. Make a hubpage or lens bashing the product and recommend an alternative with your affiliate link.


    3. OPRAH!!! If Oprah told her audience to eat their own poop, they would. So whenever she recommends something or mentions a new issue, people instantly begin searching it on the web. Again, follow the same process as stated in #1.

    You won't see constant traffic. Instead, you'll get large surges of traffic. These surges usually occur after the program has aired.

    Great idea. Can add this to Google Hot Trends as a way of spotting what's hot and popular.

    Also, home shopping networks like HSN and QVC inspire people to search for products online. They have daily specials that usually sell out in minutes! People will be searching for these products online. You can give it to them! :D

    Some really great tips that I had not thought of. Oprah and home shopping network are really good ideas. I would check out some daily capsules of the Oprah show to find ideas. I don't want to watch her everyday. Likewise, check out the HSN website for hot sellers to save some time.

    Another good place for niche ideas and HOT topics or products is your spam email box!

    Clever idea.
    Let them foot the bill for the infomercials,
    and we leech off any buzz generated on TV.

    Oprah is straight over-rated - nice and helpful - but her and dr phil should sail away into the sunset together.
