As a lot of you have noticed as we get closer and closer to Christmas and New Years, traffic and conversions get more and more erratic. Happens every year. With that thought in mind most of the stuff we’re looking at, at this point is planning for the new year. Rather then trying to get campaigns profitable right now we’re setting up pre-sell pages and creatives for new campaigns across the board.
There are two things that make the New Year a fantastic time for affiliate marketing
- All the brand advertisers that were buying and bidding up prices leave the market place. So reps for ad companies actually want to talk with us again and have time for us affiliates.
- New years resolutions. It’s a new year everyone wants to stop what they’re doing and start doing something better.
With number 2 in mind I decided to try and find a good list of the top New Years resolutions. And came across USA.gov. According to the US Government this is the top list of new years resolutions that US citizens make for themselves.
- Lose Weight
- Manage Debt
- Save Money
- Get a Better Job
- Get Fit
- Get a Better Education
- Drink Less Alcohol
- Quit Smoking Now
- Reduce Stress Overall
- Reduce Stress at Work
- Take a Trip
- Volunteer to Help Others
Any of these niches look familiar? Ironic isn’t it? Pretty much a list start to finish of the best converting niches in affiliate marketing. Ironic Isn’t it?
So lets recap:
Cheap Media ( brand advertisers leaving )+ motivated buyers ( new years resolutions )+ pain products ( see previous post here ) = Dollars in your Wallet.
P.S. of course ask your affiliate manager on A4D if you’re looking for any of these types of offers.
