There is an easy way to make money online with Google trends and CPA offers. The process is actually very simple, but there is work involved. If you are not familiar with CPA and what its all about, First read What is CPA, then come back and read the rest of this article. As for Google trends, its basically a Google tool that lets you discover the latest patterns in keyword search behavior. So you can see what topics are hot at the moment. To make money with this method, you have to combine Google trend with CPA offers. Here is how to make money online using Google trends and CPA offers:
Pick a trend
Try Swagbucks, the famous rewards program that pays you for watching videos, taking surveys, shopping and more.
First things first, visit Google trends and pick a hot subject that you would like to use. I would suggest you pick a trend that you have some knowledge about, or at least can quickly learn the basics of it, doing so will make it easier for you to make money with the trend. To make it easy to understand and follow for everyone. lets assume you pick Apple iPod.
Pick a CPA offer
For this, obviously you need to be registered with a CPA network or two. If you aren’t, then register with a few. I highly recommend MaxBounty as I use it myself and they always pay on time and have a very friendly affiliate managers. There are also many other legit CPA networks out there. Login to your CPA network site and search for simple zip code or email submit offers, preferably those that giveaway apple ipod. Zip and email offers pay $1 to $5 for each lead and those leads have to only submit an email address or a zip code in order for you to get a commission. They are much easier to promote and convert, since people don’t have to spend any money to get a free product.
Build a simple one page blog
This page will serve as your landing page, where you will have a link to your CPA offer. You can either use free blogging platforms like blogger(blogspot) to build a blog in a few minuets. I would suggest you buy your own unique domain and hosting. You could buy a .info domain for $0.99 and $5 a month will cover your hosting. Plus you could use the same site for different trends, by creating a new page for each trend. If you do this, make sure you buy a generic domain, as you will be working with different kinds of trends and CPA offers.
On this site(page), create a simple poll about the trend with a yes or no answer option, where both yes and no link to your CPA offer. So, no matter which button they click, they will be redirected to the CPA offer you are promoting. Don’t make your poll too complicated, make it simple and quick. In our case, it could be something like:
If you have to only sign up for one paid survey site to make money with, I recommend Ipsos-iSay. Ipsos is the most fun and well-paying panel. Give it a try to see how you like it. It is free anyway!
Do you think apple ipod is too expensive? OR Would you rather get a free apple ipod or a free iPod touch?
You could also use your articles instead of polls and simply place a link to the CPA offer (You can not do that on article directories, because most of them do not allow affiliate links).
Write a few articles
If you knwo about the subject (in our case apple ipod), Write a few articles about the trend you picked. In our case, its the apple ipod. You could write about its history, its usefulness and why people should have one and etc. These articles will have to link to your site you built earlier where you have a link to the CPA offer you plan to promote.
If you don’t know much about the subject, simply do some research online. A simple and quick way to learn the important things about the trend is to search for it on Google and find articles written about it. Read those articles and rewrite them in your own words. I am not advocating you copy-paste other people’s articles. Please do not copy and paste articles. That is considered plagiarism and is punishable by law, plus its not ethical. Instead, use them as a guide to write your articles.
Submit article to article directories
To get exposure, you need to submit your articles to article directories. However, many article directories take a few days to approve your articles and since Google trends usually last for only a few days or so, by the time your article gets published, the trend would’ve died down. So, you need to submit to article directories that approve articles instantly or within 24 hours or so, like AssociatedContent.com.
Promote you site
The only thing left to do is… well, promoting your site in anyway you can. Remember, trends die quickly, so don’t waste your time with long time SEO methods, instead use methods that give quick results, such as tweeting, social bookmarking and etc. The more traffic you get, the more money you can make.
This method allows anyone to make money online with a little work. Timing is very crucial with Google trends. You have to get it right to succeed. However, be prepared for setbacks and failures. You may fail to make money on your first few tries and you will not make money on each and every trend you work on. Don’t give up! You will perfect it as you go along. You will lean how to time it just right and how to spend the least amount of time on each trend, while making the most amount of money from it.
That is it! Don’t you think this truly is one of the easiest ways to make money online with Google trends and CPA offers?
