When you buy a new product or see something interesting in the news, what do you usually do?… Go search for it on the internet of course!
This is something you probably considered when you were first thinking about starting a blog or creating a product around your site. What’s hot right now and how can I gain an audience and create a legitimate business out of it?
This is exactly what the guys behind TabletTraining.com did!
They found a hot niche market that everyone is not only buying into (ipad), but also going online to look for training videos as well.
What better way to make money in the growing tablet industry than to sell information videos and create an affiliate program to continually drive sales through their site.
Let’s take a look at that TabletTraining.com has done, and how you can do the same for your business.
Find a Winning Niche / Product
The first thing you are going to need to do is find a winning niche, product or service that is exploding right now.
Mobile is a clear winner and tablets are right behind it. Everyone seems to have a smart phone now, and Apple is one of the most popular products in the world. How long before everyone is walking around with iPads?
Now that you’ve found a niche, it’s time to look at the different ways you can market it to your audience and the current search volume and advertiser competition out there.
How are People Searching for iPad Information?
As mentioned, you need to find a niche and then focus on how you are going to reach your audience of potential customers.
Obviously you can build a niche blog and create as much content as possible and try to rank for everything, or you can advertise through traffic sources that are already available… two examples being Yahoo and Google Search.
In the screenshot below you will see that plenty of people are not only already searching for iPad tablet training, but there are plenty of advertisers who are trying to cash in on these search trends as well.
With billions of video views everyday, it would be rediculous to not consider using YouTube to reach your audience. After taking a look at a few iPad tablet training videos, we can see that advertisers are already advertising inside videos and along side in banner ad campaigns.
This doesn’t mean that it’s too late for you to start advertising, it confirms your hopes that there is a growing market for your product idea and a growing user base that is already out there.
Implementing an Affiliate Program to Drive Daily Sales
With a hot product live and a growing audience of customers who can be advertised to in a wide variety of ways, the next best thing to do would be to start your own affiliate program.
TabletTraining.com went live with their affiliate program on ClickBank and are currently paying out 75% commissions on all referred sales!
Since TabletTraining.com is already an established site and has a quality product, they can focus on the management and growth of their product, while marketers around the world come up with creative and effective ways to promote their product.
Affiliates earn 75% of all sales and TabletTraining.com continues to grow their customer base.
In this example we used how successful online companies are targeting hot niche markets like “iPad” and “Tablet Training”. There are millions of other hot topics and niches out there that are making millions of dollars every day.
Be sure to take the time to find and create your own products for these hot markets, or jump on the bandwagon and promote existing programs like TabletTraining.com and earn a hefty commission in the process.
