Guide To Finding Affiliate Products THAT SELL
Chapter 8: Ride the Trend Wave
Speaking of trends, tools such as Google Trends can help you figure out what’s going to be hot or what’s in decline across any number of industries, products, services, and topics for the general public.
Google pools together their analytics and freely shares this information to marketers, like you.
For example, I can see that ‘electronic cigarettes’ continue to grow in popularity but, at this very time, has a little less interest, from the public, than a few months ago – perhaps this is related to New Year’s resolution on quitting? I think so. Using the information, I could see that a website around that topic and industry has a lot of potential for the long run since its still growing.
The one problem with trend spotting is that you never quite know whether a product or service will stay in favor; people change their minds all the time so you can’t really take trends as the definitive source for your inspiration. Combine trends with the other tools and you’ll have a better picture as to what products and service to promote in your affiliate business.
