Affiliate Marketers See GREEN When Fall Arrives

Fall is a sad time for some; the hot summer weather is over and the thought of relaxing seems to be in the past. And it’s true – for affiliate marketers it’s time to really get back to work! There is so much to do this time of year because this is the time when there is a Holiday every month. We have Halloween in October, Thanksgiving in November, and Christmas in December (just to name a few). So the question is – are you ready for them?

Halloween is the first big money-making opportunity, and it’s fast approaching. Here’s how I would uncover what’s hot this season:

The first thing you should do is look at Google Hot Trends to find out what people are looking for right now. Then, find a merchant who sells that type of product. Sometimes searching Google Trends brings up answers, sometimes it doesn’t, but here’s what I found when I searched just now:

  • halloween costumes for women – is at #20 in the “Hot Trends” section
  • halloween costume ideas 2009 – is at #24

 What kind of costumes might the “idea” lookers be interested in? Maybe something from a current TV show? Or, maybe some sexy costumes, or spooky costumes? There are TONS of keyword ideas here that you could put into a PPC campaign and start marketing to immediately.

How immediately? Well, find a merchant who has a Data Feed available and slap up a simple site. It will be fully furnished with the data feed, but you will need to add some content, unless you use a program like WebMerge to input the actual text on the page (but there’s not enough time right now to learn that program).

I’m also seeing that there are already quite a few Halloween marketers out there. So if you’re marketing to the Halloween partiers, you’ll need to be VERY specific when developing your keyword list so you can get ahead of the competition.

Get started, keep going, and soon Fall will have a new color for you too – GREEN!


P.S. Wicked Temtations is offered through ShareASale, and they have a DataFeed available!
