No matter what topic of niche you can think of, there are going to be at least a few hundred or thousand blogs covering the subject. When it comes to Halloween there is a lot to talk about. After all, just look at what some of the top search terms are for when it comes to Halloween related traffic.
The bottom line is, when Halloween comes around people are searching for everything. Some people and blogs will produce content year round just waiting for the Halloween rush and they will absolutely make a killing. If you are going to try and take advantage of the Halloween season and want to make a business out of it, starting your own Halloween costumes blog is a great idea.
At the same time it’s also important to remember that it’s not just about creating a blog and content during September and October, but you need to build a business model that continues to work for you year round. The way to create a winning blog is through valuable content and consistency.
Here are a few ideas on how you can create a blog focused on Halloween costumes and make money in the process.
Earn Commissions on Halloween Costumes
Through the use of Halloween affiliate programs millions of web sites and blogs are going to cash in nicely this Halloween. Instead of having to sell your own products and hold inventory, you can simply link to the top Halloween costume sites on the internet and earn a commission every time a sale is made. Most of these sites will pay around 8-15% in commissions. Shareasale is one of the leading networks for gaining access to Halloween related affiliate programs.
When it comes to creating a blog for Halloween costumes, you can take this from nearly any angle. You can focus on the top Halloween costumes for this year, or even build a niche specific site, such as “top super hero costumes” or “sexy halloween costumes”. Both of these topics have huge search results and sales every year.
Google Adsense is Stacked with Halloween Ads
No matter what topic you go after, as long as it’s Halloween you are going to find a lot of advertiser activity on Google Adsense. If you create a blog that is strictly focused on getting people to your site to make money, then Google Adsense is a good option. The links will be relevant to your content and most people are already in a buying mode. Be sure that you are trying to make a quick buck with your traffic since once a user clicks on a Google ad they leave your site for good!
Be the Source for Halloween Coupon Codes
The majority of people looking for Halloween costumes online are already in a buying mode, but when they start looking for coupons online they are DEFINITELY in a buying mode. If you were to create a blog focused on providing visitors with the latest information on Halloween costumes and specifically coupons you could do quite well. Combining your coupon codes and affiliate marketing, you will not only have your traffic in a buying mode but you will be providing them with coupon codes to increase the likelihood of a sale.
Building Your Mailing List for Yearly Growth and Returns
Lastly as I mentioned earlier, many businesses spend the whole year waiting for Halloween to cash in on all of their efforts. If you are going to make a Halloween based blog, make sure you take the time to add in a newsletter or subscriber box so you can contact all of your site visitors and customers when Halloween comes around next year. Be sure to offer an incentive to get them on your list, such as a free coupon or top halloween costumes!
