It’s not a secret that I’m a huge fan of the Warrior Forum. I’m an addict, I admit that:) I spend at least 2 hours browsing it everyday. I find it useful mainly for three reasons:
1. It’s an incredible place to get some new ideas (or combine already working method with the new one).
2. To improve skill on certain topics (I do read every post on email marketing lately).
3. Get motivated (there are tons of motivating posts that can skyrocket your productivity).
So, lately I was digging a little bit more deeper into the Forum (gone back to 2008) and found a pretty powerful post, that was written by Steven Wagenheim. This method will be interesting to everyone who use Adsense or Clickbank. As Steven claims, using this exact same step-by-step blueprint that I will reveal you in just a second, he managed to make $500 in one day. So here you go:
Step 1 – Go to Google Hot Trends.
Here is the URL: http://www.google.com/trends
Google Trends: Oct 12, 2008
You will notice a TON of hot trends there, so there is plenty to choose
from. These are keywords, things and people that are getting mass
searches RIGHT NOW. It will tell you the last time it was updated. Right
now, as I am writing this, it was updated about 50 minutes ago.
Step 2 – This is the part that takes a little research and most of your
hour. Look for items that you can monetize, either through selling a related
affiliate product (preferably Clickbank as it’s easy to sign up) or through
You have to use a little imagination for the monetization part. For example,
right now, one of the hot trends is nascar results. Now, a lot of people
into nascar are into stuff like hats and shirts and other memorabilia. You
can monetize this either through Adsense ads that sell this stuff, or, if
you can find an affiliate program that sells this stuff (won’t be Clickbank)
you can sell a few items yourself. Take your time on this part of it because
if you don’t monetize this carefully, the next steps are going to be for
You also want to do a little keyword research for this to make sure you’re
not going up against a million sites. The newest hot trends, especially if
they’ve never been hot before, will have very few competing sites.
These are the ones you can cash in on quickly.
Step 3 – Get a blogger blog and name it something that fits the niche. It
isn’t the best choice but waiting for your own domain and hosting will
not get you up and running quickly. So start with a blogger blog and if
you see it’s taking off, you can always move everything to your own
Step 4 – Write an article on the subject matter and put it on your blog.
If you are selling an affiliate product, make sure you have a link to it at
the end of the article.
Step 5 – Go to sites like Digg and dig your article. Do this with as many
sites as you can.
Total time for this whole thing is one hour, more or less.

My 2 cents: I know, if you are an older marketer you’ve probably already seen this, but still, this is pretty darn powerful stuff! Not only you can get shit load of traffic from hot trending keywords, but sometimes these keywords have very little competition.
My advice would be to create one general blog and update it every day. There’s no way you can’t make money using this method. Here’s even better idea – create a Youtube video! I had a video that got 100 views per minute from just one trending keyword! So yea, it’s working:)
Oh, and you can integrate twitter and facebook with this method too. Set it to auto tweet and auto post everytime you update your blog. There’s a big chance for your posts to go viral, because this is what people are searching and this is what it’s hot right now at this moment. So yea, give it a try someday.
