    Default Other Lucrative Industries

    What are some of the other affiliate industries you guys are experimenting with. Personally I have done well with driving traffic in the Myspace niche.....all adsense driven. But man, monetizing traffic (even 30K+ uniques) per day is so difficult when your visitors are 16 year old kids!

    I tried a few dating sites but the returns are such trash compared to gaming.....we're pretty spoiled here.

    I have been talking to a forex AM though, anyone have experience in that market. I know the returns are equal to gaming on sign-ups.

    Hi,

    good luck with Forex. I've tried it on a sparing attempt and had little luck.
    Almost Here! How would you like to be able to get not just one sign up from your player, or even a couple, but every single casino they join from here on? I've a plan that can make that happen and it will likely also tell you every time the player is active within the casino.

    I tried the drop-shipping business. It did very well years back before eBay came along and ruined everything *L*

    Can't you open an eBay store and drop ship from there? Make a small prefit and sell more.

    Ebay is a publicly traded company and they have reached market saturation. Because they are publicly traded they have to show investors growth and the only way to do this is to raise fees every quarter or year. The end result is that for the seller on ebay the fees get larger and the profit margins decrease as the competition increases. Unless you can sell high ticket items or have something very unique then it's not worth trying to get into. This is especially true if you are just drop shipping for someone else.

    My first internet venture was buying discount books at local book stores and reselling them for 30% off the retail price on yahoo auctions. At the time this provided a decent profit margin but now with the fees it would not be worth it.

    I'll stroke that eBay idea of the list then. Thanks for the answer!

    Forex as an aff, or Forex as a trader?.

    I spent some time last year in Forex forums, and the number of people doing bad is significant.
    Some traders think that to make some profit and stand the falls of the market you will need at least 100K in the trade.

    As an Aff, I think that the interest of the people in this venture is big, but I do prefer to send people to casinos.

    I don't feel good selling those books, courses etc.
    I know that the chance in the mini forex is minimal.

    To be perfectly honest, I think trading the Forex is a joke. There are so many people that are doing day than good.

    And, it is more of a "gamble" than the online gaming industry. At least, around here, we know that "in most cases" we are not going to be losing money.

    You can take my comment in this thread for what it's worth, as I am a noob here, but lucrative niches all involve human nature (in a sense...). What I mean is that any niche that caters to human emotion will be lucrative. Even more so, any niche that caters to human drive and belief systems will fare even better.

    I understand a lot of people will look at my comment and shun it, but nonetheless it's the truth. Just look at every single successful business in the world and follow their lead. If you keep going and never give up, you will be successful. Personally, I have no doubt about that.

    As well, although you should not reinvent the wheel, and you should go with what works (and I don't claim to know what works, which is why I am here ), you should, however, invent. Rise above the rest to become the best (again, I hope I'm not plagiarizing here).
