I've been doing a lot of research on marketing over these past few years. Had a few successful online retail business attempts (currently making another) that earned me a couple of thousand dollars through eBay and Amazon. It was very enjoyable but I'm looking for new ways to grow. So I've been doing research on getting into the game of CPA, SEO, PPC etc. Some things I understand, other things I don't. But what I've noticed is that most of the attempts that I've seen on the forums tend to be pretty low yielding. I hear about people toiling for hours a day only to make $20. Which to me, just doesn't seem worth while. Now I understand why. So many people are using the same method and there's not enough pie to go around. So I was thinking why not try something a little bit more innovative and less known. But I don't know what that could possibly be. All I've got so far is you post an advertisement of a product not currently in your possession (dropshipping). Do all of the mathematical calculation to ensure that you will turn a profit off of the item. Write the advertisement and come up with a really innovative and high view yielding marketing scheme. Like target the right places of the body, kind of like acupuncture, so you can do the most damage in the highly profitable areas. (SEO, keyword searches.) Only problem is finding the right product to market (I have one) and coming up with enough capital to make the marketing campaign. Ideally, I'd like to make a marketing campaign that pays for itself. But how to do that..... I have some ideas but I'd rather not share them at the moment. All I know is you gotta think outside the box! If you don't, then well you become a drone stuck in a boring routine. What have you done to change the marketing game in your own unique way?
