    I thought the 2012 niche was dead and buried, I did make a few bucks from it a while back.

    But I've noticed that people are going nuts about it. People are making runs for supplies across the world, it's clear that some gullible people still believe this crazy story.

    Is there any way we can still exploit this? Google Trends is going crazy.

    I was thinking of maybe doing press releases or something. Any ideas?

    Doomsday stuff is a huge Niche market.... there's ALWAYS a new scenario about to unfold at any given moment of time... even after Dec 21st... look at the big dogs, like David Icke(Who concocted the "Reptilian Leaders" theory lol) who have built empires by taking advantage of weak minded people :D

    Yeah I don't plan on promoting 2012 specific products although CPA would work.

    I was thinking of generic survival stuff that would be handy anyway. I mean, everone should pack a small survival cache in their house anyway, end of the world or not.

    Make a prepper site with a bunch of affiliate links to various markets like amazon, ebay, etc. If they start complaining you can direct them to ebay's legal council since that's where they bought it from :3

    Every contry that prints money HAS TO colapse even Rome 2000 years ago and they didn't even have paper money. The sad things is people start to prepare when it's to day. America will colapse eventually to. that is a real doomsday not dec 2012. it's good to be prepared the 99% laugh at the 1% who prepare. when the colapse comes then the 1% is readdy the 99% run like chicken without head.

    Cool, they even have a marketing and sales department.

    There's a good idea - become their affiliate ;)

    People's creativity will never stop surprising us...

    Funniest part is about the ticket costing 25 bucks for a space trip come on, there can't be a fool to fall for that, seriously... come on...

    LOL. Read the FAQ in the website stated above in this thread (http://www.escapeearth2012.com/ )

    * What is your 100% money back guarantee?If the world ends on December 21, 2012, we guarantee your survival and placement on a new Earth-like planet via first class space travel aboard the USS Ark 2012â„¢. If you don't survive, you get your money back. This guarantee is only good if there is an apocalypse on planet Earth.
    ROFL. "If you DON'T survive, you get your money back" LMAOOOO........WAHAHAHHAHAHAAH

    Damn! It looks like he took that idea from the movie "2012" but instead of a big ass submarine he's selling tickets for a big ass space ship! Wondering how many sales would this guy have got!
