Sometime people ask me about affiliate marketing opportunities — are they still out there? Can you still make money?
The short answer is “yes”, now more than ever. Here's a simple example.
As many of you know, I play softball. Recently, my right foot started hurting near the heel and under the arch. I'm 45 years old, and I play games that are designed for young men, so having various body parts that hurt is expected. Advil cures most ailments, but this pain would not go away. To make a long story short, I finally went to the doctor and found out that my problem is plantar fasciitis.
Now, I know that I had heard that somewhere before. So, immediately after getting the diagnosis, I did the exact same thing that everyone does these days — I Googled it! Immediately, I saw ads, and as an affiliate marketer, that temporarily distracted me from my foot pain. Using Keyword Canine to search for plantar fasciitis, I could see that there are a lot of other people out there with hurting feet as well. Not only that, but there are ClickBank products — and one has pretty decent gravity.
Might be an interesting niche to check out. I was personally tempted to buy the leading ClickBank product.
Anyway, the point is that affiliate marketing opportunities are all around you. Keep your eyes open.
