I have came up with a great Idea on how to spot a hot Niche and Make money from. I originally was going to create a WSO on it but decided to just give it away for free. Basically here is brief overview
Now it's not the traditional method of looking at EBAY, Amazon, Google to find out what the latest trends are
Here is a site that you should check
Do something, Learn something, Share something, Change something - Meetup
Basically it's a site that helps like minded individuals come together to meet and do whatever they want to do.
I researched and studied this site to see how I could "Exploit " it for marketing purposes.
During my research I noticed what the biggest groups are
For example, I live in Metro Atlanta Area and these are the groups ranked from Largest to Smallest
Meetups near Atlanta, Georgia - Meetup
As you can see the top groups are outdoors people and Singles. Also there are plenty of business networking groups as well.
So now you wanna know how to monetize this site?
1. One thing is you get very good back link juice. They allow you to create a custom page to your liking
2. You can Sponsor their meeting. The cost varies. Most of these smaller groups don't even have a sponsor and gladly take your $20 to let their 400 members know about your product or services.
3. Actually go into these meetings and pitch your ideas. I have been in many groups and they allowed me to speak to everyone at one time.
4. Start your OWN meetup group. Now you can do whatever you want to.
5. This is the killer app.. You can actually email all the list members when you join their groups/mailing list.
Here is the signature on the bottom of the email.. I removed the personal emails
--This is very simple to implement.. I would love to hear peoples feedback on this.
Please Note: If you hit "REPLY", your message will be sent to everyone BLANKED @ meetup.com)
