    Almost anything "trial based" converts if you find the right market for it.

    If your looking for what's hot you can try sites like

    Yahoo Buzz
    Ebay Pulse

    And various others.

    See what Oprah is talking about next week..

    Then find offers to match....

    I'll have to agree with Simon, most trial offers convert a lot better. Many of the health related offers for "Colon Cleansing" and "****" were hot the past year, but there have been complaints about how the "trial offers" operate their business. Other than trial offers zip submits and email submits convert, but you would need volume to really make money with those offers.

    That's right, as it wasn't making sense how they were able to payout $30-$40 per sale. I saw an article on Yahoo News about it recently as well, along with it being on the local news here in my city regarding people who were charged repeatedly on their credit cards.

    If you mean to sell then I suggest you go into the holiday niche. It is just around the corner with easter coming up and the summer holidays not too far off.

    The trial based model isn't broken , simply some of the products are shite and the way the advertisers rebill in small print.

    There's essentially no difference between what big name marketers are doing giving away their program for free then putting you in a continutity program and the trial offers, it's really very similar and has been plaguerised from the offline world of the "nothing down - pay later" model.

    If you don't like that model at all the advice still stands, go to sites like the ones I mentioned, and others that people have suggested and simply find out what is hot, another really good one I like is Google Trends, it's actually bloody fantastic . Chekc out the Amazon top sellers list, etc, you'll easily find out what people are after.

    Just find something that's hot, go see if you can find a matching offer of some kind and tie it in. It doesn't have to be a trial offer, they just convert extraordinarily well.

    The key is to think laterally, you're not always going to find a direct offer that matches so think outside the box. If Oprah is talking about high school musical this week, what about finding a high school musical ring tone.

    Possibilities are endless.

    For me the most HOT right now is affiliate marketing. And some people do online job sites to gather much income. As far as I searched or found in this forum all threads are all about articles so I guess these is the hottest one write now making an article and submit it to ezine and articlemarketers.

    There is still a market for the **** trial offers, but I would still take into account the fact that many of them are a bit shady with their billing practices. By shady I do not mean the actual option of a trial period, that's been around for awhile, but what some of the **** offers are doing is making it extremely difficult to cancel within the 14 days. Many are "charging" the customer before the 14 days are up. To me that is what makes it shady, and not the option for having a trial period.

        Throw any of these together with "I couldn't lose weight until I tried these two products" BS blog and your gold.

    Earn google cash has been getting good review. I am actually reading an ebook on how to make money on google, and it does look promising, although I am new to this kind of money earning i always though that money making scheme on the net are fraud but I thin my opinion is changing or turning the opposite way making a couple of degrees turn every hour of the day. I guess as long as it is legitimate why not give it a try.

      Well with Summer coming soon...I've been tearing it up with a few weight loss trial offers and a couple of skin firming product offers have been doing well.

      Getting ready to roll out a few campaigns for a workout system offer...had a few campaigns last year around this time for a similar product that did really well.

      This might not be on point...but it's freakin hilarious.

      For one of the Weight loss offers...it's got banner traffic going to it. The number 1 converting banner, which also has the highest CTR is:

      Summers Around the Corner...
      You Gonna Avoid the Beach again - Fat Boy!
      Lose the Rolls & Hit the Sand...
      Proven Formula...Free Trial Still Available

      Well, I had to throw that out there. Never hurts to go way outside the box!

      Good Luck All!

        I bet it's pretty basic but I'm curious what it's in it.

        I tried buying it w/ a pre-paid CC but they wouldn't accept it.

        Not so sure if I want to submit my CC # on that site... I have a feeling "Danny Goldberg" might accidently charge more than I'd like...

          They probably didn't take it because your card did not have enough money for the authorization. Check the hidden fees in the Terms and Conditions.

          Here you go!
          ------------------------------------------------
          "After your initial risk-free trial, access is contracted on a month-to-month basis and cancelable at any time seven days prior to the payment date by providing written notice. Shipping and Handling Fees are not cancelable nor are they eligible for refund. No refunds of any kind will be issued after 7 days of any transaction date.

          You have also subscribed to a fourteen-day trial to IPlanFinancial for just $38.34 a month and every month thereafter should you chose not to cancel. Prior charges for all programs are non-refundable but bonus subscriptions can be cancelled and future charges stopped at any time by calling toll free 888-247-3851.

          If you choose to sign up for this product and pay the recurring monthly charges using a debit card you hereby provide pre-authorization and consent that FreshKeywordIdeas.com may charge $77.82 on a monthly basis
          "
          -----------------------------------------------------

          There probably trying to pre-authorize your card for the whole amount, since the trial period is so short.

          Standard fake blog with comments suspended because of "spam." Yeah right!
          What's really slick about this fake blog is the "terms of use" on the blog itself. You have to go through to the actual deal to see the "terms and conditions." The "terms of use" sound very simple and innocent. You probably wouldn't even look for the "terms and conditions," which of course, are the last words on the actual registration site.

          Wow! Look what I found.

    Yea Biz-Opps are awesome for sure. I did resveratrol after the Oprah announcement, and was doing nicely for about 5 days, but man did I get priced out of that quick. The big boys come in and once they're bidding $2-$3 per click and getting the requisite payouts from networks, it's tough to compete.

    I talked with an affiliate manager who said their top biz opp guy was bringing in 5-figure profits every day..... so they're definitely still hot. But then again if you're good enough, anything can really be "hot" eh?

    You need to call your affiliate manager and ask them what is converting well on the network. It helps to be specific. If you promote via PPC you need to ask them what is converting well for other ppc marketers.

    I have something that is HOT and will be HOT for a very long time. I am surprised I have not seen any Post on MMT. (My Music Ticket) I don't get to excited about new programs, new lanuches but I am about this one. Mostly because of the people behind it. Memebers of the board of directors of microsoft, Play Station 2 developers, Bankers, the developer of NING and more. The program is Rock Solid and has a lot of money backing it. They plan to make One Million Millionaires this year and capture over 30% of the Network Marketing business. That translates in to over 12 Billion dollars into their profit sharing program. In this program you can get paid to do just about everything you do for free in other social networking programs. All the big marketers are in it. Experts are saying it will be bigger than FaceBook, MySpace, YouTube, Twitter and ZenZuu. WE launch this week so if you want to get in before the Frinzey let me know. The beauty of joining before the Launch is you get to start building your networks before everyone else which put you in a better money making position.

    Definitely interested in free trial offers and email/zip submits. But still a noob and commission junction is the only network I'm a part of so far and they don't have very many of those for the niches that I'm interested in promoting. Not too thrilled about getting started with them due to their reptutation lol

    Commission Junction is more about actual sales of goods and / or services than it is about information harvesting.

    Keep in mind, even the most current trends STARTED somewhere. So, why not START the next trend? Don't depend on buzz, trends, the latest hot spots, etc. Just sign up with a network, start at the top of their offers, and start promoting. You'll find what's moving and what's not, by DOING.

    Once you find it, FOCUS on it and milk it for as much as possible.
    Researching more than action will limit your potential profits.

    Stop trying to find what is working for everyone else. Find what works for YOU!

      Hi Buzzword, can you explain what do you mean with "top of their offers"? You measure this with the payout or other factors?

        Simply sort the offers however you like, payout, epc, theme, etc. and start at the top. Personally, I would advise against spending PPC, or other cost methods until you know it converts.

        If you're here reading this, hopefully you have a domain or two to use. Set up a few sites/subdomains, and create a few landing pages or review sites. Do some basic link building with article marketing, web 2.0, media sites, etc, and you'll see traffic come. It takes time. No doubt. But, if you want the safest path to money flow, this is it. Do your link building every day, and you'll build a sustainable business -- long term payouts.

        Now, there are programs available to speed things up on every step of this process. They save you time, but in exchange, cost you money. You decide. Keyword research tools, mass article submission tools, mass directory submission tools, article spinners/re-writers, freelance sites for hired help, and obviously coaching.

        If you're spending $5-$10 a day on building your business, don't expect to make thousands. The major players who are making 5-figure salaries are also throwing 5-figure costs into their business.

        Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, can spend a $100 and make a million. The more you put in, the more you get out. That includes both time and money.

    I've been taught that setting up campaigns that are linked to holidays and events can be good, but don't forget that if you're using PPC to drive traffic, it takes awhile to get those campaigns up and running, so build that into your timetable.

    Good luck!
