        Because of the publicity frenzy generated by the Olympics, many Amazon affiliates are making a killing with exercise equipment, fitness products, sports memorabilia, etc. There still is time to get in on the tail end of it, but as others have said, the time to start for maximum exposure was at least several months or even a year ago.

    Info sites, hotel booking sites, travel sites, where to find accomodation, tips and hints, even a dropshipping site for olympic memrobila and souveniers etc etc

    Like I said, you have two days to build a site, rank it, get visitors etc etc and compete with the 2 million others who had the idea 12 months ago!!!! like I said.... bit late now!

    Yeah, it's a bit late. Generally you want to try and plan at least a few months in advance for any big event that you're going to target.

    Try this....

    Many times you will have breakout athletes that shine in the Olympics. Pay close attention to those names that are trending in Google Trends and other places.

    Then consider setting up a blog site with updated news information devoted to that athlete....With your affiliate links on your site, of course!

    So watch who's trending and act fast ....It's sort of similar to the old Google Trends method that was made popular by Steven Wagenheim on here.

    Love the olympics but left promotion too late, the method I would have done about 2 years ago is:

    As I live in the UK and know quite a few people in London I would call them up, about 5 of my mates live in London, I would then ask them if I could have there friends emails addresses, say 40 friends per friend. So I have 200 emails, I will then send an email to all of them and just become friends, on facebook, skype whatever. So now I know 205 people who live in London.

    I would then buy a domain something like: Homesinlondonforolympics.com (probably less than that but you get where this is going.)

    I would then ask the 205 people if they would like to rent there homes for the olympics, explain how they could make a lot of money. Say 100 reply and are interested, then I would get the basic information from them, so what part of london, distance from Olympic stadium, time to get there, number of bedrooms, maybe a few pictures. Then add these places to the rentahouseinlondon website.

    Drive traffic by SEO/PPC "houses for rent in london for olympics" ETC. The main tagline being make an offer for this house. Then contact the owner, take 10/20% COMMISSION and then give the person the profit, or say shall I hold out for a higher figure.

    I think this would be a great idea but didn't start it early enough.

    Do you think it would have worked?

    • Content, content, content.

      Create content around the Olympics.
      Put that content in front of people.
      Put links at bottom of that content which puts people in appropriate sales funnel.

      Almost endless amount of things to write about!

      Cheers,
      Gordon

      Do you think it would have worked?
      Putting people wanting to rent and those looking to rent together is no bad idea, severe doubts about getting your friends to pass on their friend's emails...

      If you are driving traffic for people wanting to rent, then you can use the same methods to drive traffic for the people looking to rent, forget using friend's (soon to be ex-friend's) emails!

      Cheers,
      Gordon

    Little late, but sell merchandise, blog and live blog during events etc.

    If you were wanting to do something you should have built up to it just as they have done with the olympics

    Amazon Affiliates for sports equipment, healthy food & sports drink.... like myob mentioned. And of course everything that has to do with accomodation, hot 'traffic' tips like - how to get fast to the Olympics - news about public viewing (eg. interesting news around the Opening Ceremony for all those viewing it in Hyde Park).
    Nevertheless, it's certainly a bit late

    How about setting up a site that broadcasts the Olympic games for those who aren't able to watch it?

    And use content locker for monetization.

      Live streaming site for Olympic Games, thats a nice idea buddy. I think I should start working on this from today.

        You do realize the games only last for 2 weeks right?
        Maybe start now for 2016, you are way to late for the London Olympics...

    If you search "watch olympic live stream" (Page 1-4), you can already see how people are monetizing those traffic.

    Most of those sites redirect the traffic to a satellite tv clickbank product. Some are using content locking.

    As it is already mentionned, I think it is a little bit late now for London Olympic games. There is a lot to do to build something valuable and rank in a good position. Then you start making money.

    Great, go with preparing a bulk amount of content & use it for sharing purposes that will definitely drive a huge traffic to your site.

    This is one big possibility as the Olympics are in huge demand all the time, it doesn matters a lot if the time has passed or a small time is remaining, you can catch your readers anytime but quality is the KEY...

    I set up a site about a popular swimmer a year ago and the traffic I have seen the last 4 days in insane.
    Will easily make 4 figures on clickbank the next 2 weeks if the first 4 days are anything to go by.

    Yeah, you're kind of too late to the games!

    You need to be quick off the mark to monetise an event like this. And it's pretty random as well. Like so far the cycling has been the most popular event with the UK public - the brilliant road races and the Tour de France win mean that cycling will be massively popular for a few months now. Last time the rowing was really popular here.

    The Olympics is short lived though. I live near the Olympic Park and by November it will be full of tumbleweed, much like the Asian Games 2010 venues were in Guangzhou when I visited them in 2011!

    Oh and remember that the Olympic name and brand (i.e. the rings) are copyrighted and the holders can and do crack down hard on anyone using them!

    Too late. Even if you start now you may not get good result. Best of luck for the next time.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[6708659].message }}
  • I don't believe you are too late there are still plenty of opportunities to monotize the olympics 2012

    You could consider writing some blogs reporting on the results.
    Videos reviewing who has won and olympics news may also be very profitable and a great way to get fast traffic.

      And how is he going to get traffic to his articles? He has not even started and the Olympics are well on the way...

      Yes and how is he going to compete with established News sites and Blogs that started preparing months/years ago for this event?

He can use the tips in the following Olympics or even Sports Articles and events if he chooses to start his own e-business. The English Premier League is starting soon, he might be able to write about that.
          I think the problem will be that Google will rank most of the news outlets higher than a new site for current events.
