Default Who Wants To Make Money Right Now?...Yes, Right NOW!

Okay, if you're bored, have nothing else to do and want to make some quick
cash without a ton of work, and WITHOUT having to wait for EZA to approve
your article...give this a shot. And the beauty of this little money maker is
that there are so many niches to choose from that nobody will get in another
person's way...not really.

Here it is...step by step. It shouldn't take you longer than an hour...tops.

Step 1 - Go to Google Hot Trends.

Here is the URL:

Google Trends: Oct 12, 2008

You will notice a TON of hot trends there, so there is plenty to choose
from. These are keywords, things and people that are getting mass
searches RIGHT NOW. It will tell you the last time it was updated. Right
now, as I am writing this, it was updated about 50 minutes ago.

Step 2 - This is the part that takes a little research and most of your
hour. Look for items that you can monetize, either through selling a related
affiliate product (preferably Clickbank as it's easy to sign up) or through
Adsense.

You have to use a little imagination for the monetization part. For example,
right now, one of the hot trends is nascar results. Now, a lot of people
into nascar are into stuff like hats and shirts and other memorabilia. You
can monetize this either through Adsense ads that sell this stuff, or, if
you can find an affiliate program that sells this stuff (won't be Clickbank)
you can sell a few items yourself. Take your time on this part of it because
if you don't monetize this carefully, the next steps are going to be for
nothing.

You also want to do a little keyword research for this to make sure you're
not going up against a million sites. The newest hot trends, especially if
they've never been hot before, will have very few competing sites.

These are the ones you can cash in on quickly.

Step 3 - Get a blogger blog and name it something that fits the niche. It
isn't the best choice but waiting for your own domain and hosting will
not get you up and running quickly. So start with a blogger blog and if
you see it's taking off, you can always move everything to your own
domain later.

Step 4 - Write an article on the subject matter and put it on your blog.
If you are selling an affiliate product, make sure you have a link to it at
the end of the article.

Step 5 - Go to sites like Digg and dig your article. Do this with as many
sites as you can.

That's it.

Total time for this whole thing is one hour, more or less.

They don't all come up winners, but I have hit on some big money makers
when I picked JUST the right hot trend.

It's kind of like playing hit and run at the stock market. Yes, it's risky, but
it's the quickest way I've ever seen of making money when it works, which
for me is about 40% of the time.

Like I said, if you've got nothing to do (and that's the key) and you can
blow an hour in your day, or just want to take an hour to have some fun
(yes, this can be a real thrill ride looking to see if your site takes off) then
I don't see the harm.

Are there better ways to make money for your business? Of course there
are, but as I said, this is for when you want to kill some time and still
make a few bucks besides.

My best blog earned me over $500 in one day for a hot trend that lasted
for almost 24 hours. It was a very big news story from about a year ago.

Anyway, thought I'd throw this out there for a Sunday afternoon for those
of you who aren't into football and are tired of BSing with their Aunt
Matilda.

Thanks for sharing, will give this a try

Actually I've used a variation of this method before, but I chose the PPC way because there usually isn't any competition for hot trends keywords and the bids are low - it converted pretty well, so I'll try the free route too - should be fun.

It's crazy and it's a lot of fun.

I do it expecting nothing but when it takes off, it's wild to see the money
start coming in on stuff that, quite honestly, I don't understand what all
the fuss is about.

Half the stuff that these people are searching for I don't even know what
it is and can't for the life of me figure out why they even give a rat's ass.

But the point is, they do, so why not capitalize on it?

Thanks for the great idea, Steve. Curious though, at what rate does your blog page you setup get indexed in Google so that folks can find you when they do a search for these keywords?

Is the premise of the idea to use social bookmarking to drive traffic rather than search results?

You have peaked my interest. Can you elaborate a little more?

Nice post Steve. I have done some things like this in the past however I did not do to much with digg and social networking sites. Instead I wrote press releases. There are quite a few places that allow you to submit press releases for free some of which will even get you on Google News.

If you can put yourself in the right frame of mind and think like a reporter you can do rather well. Of course your press releases do not get approved right away and can sometimes take you a day or so.

A few years back I had a press release that was about Satellite TV For PC Pro and the possible effects that it could have on the cable / satellite industry. It made me thousands in affiliate sales within a week or so.

The best part about doing press releases or even digg, etc... is that you do not need to write about a hot trend it simply has to be controversial.

Or spend the hour developing a real business. Use that research to identify a problem people have where there are no good solutions in the marketplace, and solve that problem.

Spending your time like this just guarantees you'll always be working 12 hours a day trying to make enough to pay your bills.

You can use this strategy to add to your existing business as well though. I check Google trends nearly every day and if there happens to be a weight loss trend I write about it on my weight loss blog. My post usually gets indexed within the hour and I get alot of extra traffic, which means I get more subscribers as well as a few sales.

Another idea for what Steve posted.

Try this also. I've done it time and time again. And it works all the time. I used it over the past 2 weeks and grabbed a shit ton of traffic from people looking for VP debate times. And connected the traffic with a nice converting voting CPA offer.

Take some time and build up a decent self-hosted WP site. Create one that covers a wide range of topics. Like a "current events" themed site.

Slowly build links to it and use the usual social linking techniques too.

Give this site about a month and post unique content here and there.

Then have fun with stalking long-tail words from Google Trends and other sites.

Connect those terms with things that can pay you and you WILL make some $$$.


The traffic for each phrase you target usually only comes in for a short time. Since the term is usually hot and then slows. But if you get on a term early and connect it with a good offer. You can sit back and watch some nice little chunks of $$$ come in.

This technique takes a little more time than what Steve posted. But works just as good too. Because once the site has brewed you can use the same site over and over for all the long-tail Trend words you want to profit on.

Maybe, but this is a GREAT exercise for those of us just starting out. It's a simple process that involves many of the elements of more complex Affiliate marketing, such as picking a market, picking a product, writing an article, etc.

I just now went through the steps as Steven described them, and although I may not make a nickel from it, it was certainly not a waste of time. It's just a simple and condensed version of the more complec stuff.

And, having done it once, my confidence has increased. In fact, I will probably do this several times today and tomorrow.

Thanks, Steven.....!!

If you bothered to REALLY read my post, I said that this was just a way to
kill an hour.

Not everything has to be about building a REAL business and it doesn't have
to be done every second of every day. Sometimes people just want to do
something for fun.

Fun...remember that?

You especially can make money Right Now if you choose products to promote that are based on the $7 Dollar or the Rapid Action Profits script, that way you get paid directly to your PayPal account.

Or, if you have any PLR material based on the subject, go through and edit it, add affiliate links, and sell it directly to the traffic coming from the site. This may not be possible because of the urgency of the trend, but it's not impossible.

Do it! Do it now!!

That's also a great way to pull in a little income to use for funding your projects. If you spend a few hours each week on this, you could hopefully have at least a good $100 or $200 to use for buying domains, sites, hosting, etc...

You know you could make this excellent strategy far more powerful if you did it in niches where you already have sites, you're collecting email addresses etc.

That way you could be driving traffic to adsense or monetizing your site in these ways but also be picking up new prospects and clients for the sites you're running.

Ultimately in your online marketing you want the effort you put in to pay you in multiple ways.

Kindest regards,

That is true. The problem with the hot niches concept is that a lot of
them don't fit into your "standard normal" niche. Actually, I have found
that most of the hot niches are more of the news/entertainment variety.

In other words, turn on the TV, watch the news or the hot new program
or maybe premiere movie and you'll find a lot of these things popping up
in the hot searches.

But sure, if you have a regular niche, simply writing relevant news type
articles related to that niche and then going to sites like Digg will most
certainly bring you extra traffic.

This is something you should be doing on a regular basis anyway if you're
running a content based model. For those who just dump thousands of
dollars a month into pay per click, no, this method isn't going to be very
appealing.

Thanks for the excellent idea Steven...here's what I did.

I was working on a WP site and saw a long tail kw that was "mildly hot" and related to what I was already working on. I grabbed an article from EZA (complete with bio box and all) and made a page with that keyword as title.

I then 'digg'ed it and set about researching an article of my own. I finished my own article (500 words) and replaced the one I'd borrowed. I then did the SEO plugin for that page.

Time will tell, but my digg is 4th on the first page(!) for that term after only a few hours.

Brand new site, no traffic yet so we'll see how it does when the analytics kick in.

Thanks man, I may not make a penny, but the urgency and fun of getting something up and running sure made that lousy football game at lot easier to swallow!

p.s. How do I upload a picture on here? I was trying all afternoon and still can't get it.

Steve-

Thanks for the fun idea on a Sunday! It's a great idea for pretty much any day of the week too. Whenever I look at Google Trends there are always some tings that I have to wonder "what were they thinking" when they were searching? But your point is well taken...who cares if you can capitalize on it and have some fun at the same time?

Hey, Steve! Great post!
I imagine you recommend DIGG because usually it could rank on the 1st page of a SE within few minutes (if competition is low), right?

So it makes me think... I think I might do a 24h challenge, meaning I'll do that for 24 hours straight, doing a new hot trend every 2 hours or so
Could be a great blog post...

I did this earlier today shortly after you posted this. My Digg post is number one for the keyword - my blog is nowhere to be found though. I am also seeing a few twitter posts on the first two pages for that keyword, so Twittering might be something to consider too.

Well, the idea is good... but I checked Google and the hottest trends seem to be names... ellie smith, don drysdale... I don't think I can do much with it. 2 word keyword phrases, which also happen to celebrity names - I m not sure how much one can do with it...

Bloody Hell! This is why I rarely post in forums. Replying to posts like this usually leave me with my foot in my mouth, wishing that I had rather just shut up. So I'll just restrain myself.

@kundanghanekar: Have you never heard the saying "great minds think alike"? I myself learned something similar from one of Alex Goad's books. Take Steven's post for what it is - a FREE gift

@Steven: Thanks for your post. It has given some ideas that I can test (on one of my *real* businesses)- WHILE HAVING FUN at the same time...

That gets my vote as post of the week Don.
I wonder if anyone will begin to "get it"

I agree, in part...

However, a real business could be built from this method.

Let's assume 1 hour per day spent on:

- writing
- researching

Assume you're earning, on average, $30 per trend.

Hire someone (from RAC) to do the writing and researching...
@ 1hr, I'd expect to pay around $10-$15 for someone good.

This way it is scaleable and wouldn't affect my main business.
If you're consistently earning profit, you can hire more people
or get the same person to work for, say 4 hours.

I wouldn't turn away $15-$20 profit for each hour I don't work

Steven's method above is no substitute for growing a real business, but
it can bring in much needed cash, in a short amount of time - cash
that can either be reinvested, or pay the bills - taking pressure off
you while you grow your business.

It's much easier (for me) psychologically to grow a business without
the pressure of HAVING to earn immediately.

With that said, I chose another route...

I went BACK to my job, and grew my business on the side -
then went part time on my job - and then when I was losing
money by being at my job, I left... there's 95% chance I'll never
have to go back to a regular job.

As much as I see Dan's point.. I have to say that I am guilty of testing this a few times and having some pretty sexy results on a sunday afternoon..

It's fun to test your game a little like this...

Peace

Jay

p.s. Alex.. that 24h things seems like we could have a ball... Ustream -> some beers -> Google Trends.. and DIGG.... that'd be cool to put on ya know..

Matt...

Go to socialmarker.com and register with some of the bigger sites

DIGG, Propellor etc.. the bigger named ones...

Then hit Blogger.com and create an account, this way you can have unlimited free blogs in all manner of niches as and when you need them...

Then follow Steve's link to Google trends above... get used to the feel of GTrends, it will become your best friend whilst doing this little game....

Then pick a monetizable (is that even a word??) HOT Trend... and fire up a blogger blog in your new account with an URL with the trend in the name,

I just looked over there at GTrends and saw Watch Entourage episode 5... so hit up an URL like entourageepisode5.blogspot.com...

Now write an article (or 3 if you are feeling creative)... plug in your adsense code or some CPA offers around entourage merchandise or fun things...

Then use Socialmarker to bookmark that badboy with DIGG, propellor etc...

Watch it ride and do another if you are feeling lucky...

Sometimes it will end up a complete waste of time... other times you will have a laugh seeing the profits off such a simple task.. it's fun to do and you can test your game a little by experimenting with new trends...

I've hunted in full niches before as a result of this simple little play around

Peace

Jay

I've recently bought socialbot so i can social bookmark quite easily.

So basically you just make money from the adsense?

Do you use the under 10,000 compeition rule for keywords of that niche though? or do you just go in any compeition. It's the adding content and mentizing the g-trend/keyword that i find hardest.

Is this basically getting people to the page to earn off adsense?

It doesn't have to be adsense.. some hot trends can have products that fit perfectly with them...

Clickbank isn't the only game in town.. look at independent affiliate programs, and CJ.com etc...

CPA offers... CPL programs...

Hiya Steven,

Thanks for another great informative post.

Geez, I don't see what all the fuss is about though. All this talk about being a thief, not being a business, etc... hell, it is just a simple idea of a way that can make some quick cash every now and then when you have an hour or so to kill.

Oh i think i see how it works now. I was thinking the traffic would come from search engines which made me not quite understand but now i see the actual traffic is coming from digg, stumbleupon etc.

I've noticed i get about 200-300 uniques when i stumble something.

Do you do you target the search engines at all?

Thanks Steven.

This looks like a fun way to kill time and make a little cash at the same time. Can't argue with that. Naturally, if it ain't fun to some of you, then do something else. Pretty simple. I don't think anyone will be hurt by your decision
