    Holidays are great for Azoogle offers, here's looking back on one of the best holiday mornings this year when we were hitting 1k hours.

    So how is this even possible using only pay per click as the traffic source? Well, it has to be a “perfect storm” of factors, all equally important, and all coinciding in the perfect mix. For this example the 3 main factors were:
    SEMrush
    1. Major advance preparation

    2. A major holiday.

    3. Multiple offers – all dialed in.

    Looking more closely at each of these:

    Major preparation is the key to making money on holidays, like with any campaign on any other day. You have to be willing to put in countless hours preparing everything. This includes researching the keyword trends, choosing your offers, setting up your campaigns, building your landing pages, testing, and have everything optimized well before the holiday hits. I suggest at least a month before the holiday, everything should be running well. You should have all your A/B ad copy testing done, and be confident that everything is at peak efficiency. Finally, make sure your landing pages are on a reliable host, that’s not going to crash during the crunch time. You don’t want all your hard work to go to waste when the money is really flowing in.

    The holiday is the engine that drives your traffic and earnings. In this case it was Valentines Day (the mother of all online holidays), but you can design campaigns around almost any holiday. A holiday can take a normal search term and increase it by 1,000%. Take a look at the search volume trend for the term “send flowers”.

    [​IMG]

    You can see that traffic goes through the roof on Feb 14th for this term. Another nice spike that you could work to your advantage with this keyword would be on mother’s day.

    Multiple offers are really important to capture all possible traffic activity during a given holiday. In this example I used flowers, which was one of the offers I was promoting. However, in the screenshot above there were about 4 offers feeding into that. Search through all the offers on your affiliate network and see which ones might be at all related to the upcoming holiday. Again, it all goes back to your advanced preparation. If your network doesn’t have a solid offer for the holiday you are trying to promote, join another network as well.

    The next big holiday is Halloween, so set a reminder for yourself about mid September if you want to be ready to capitalize. Anyone can see huge returns on these days, it’s just a matter of how hard do you want to work.

    Great tips! I look forward to $1000 / hours this season :)

    I'm just about to break $1000/ day so $1000 / hour would be a great increase :D

    Thanks for the ideas!

    Yeah I was thinking about Halloween coming up...definitely not one of the major holidays, but a holiday none-the-less.

    Any tips on what to heavily promote during Halloween? Costumes, makeup, etc?

    it's funny how people make 1,000 an hour.

    and most affiliate marketers don't even know where to begin.

    it's a funny money business wouldn't you say ;]

    It's definitely and funny business. Lots of highs and lows... The key is to create something stable and long lasting, while riding the big waves that come along once in a while.

    Why are you giving away your tips if you are earning around $1,000 a day. I know what I would be doing if I was earning that per day. I would not be giving out tips, I would be purchasing nice mansions. lol

    He doesn't earn $1,000/hour all day, every day...He may have only done that once...and even if he has done it more often, he can only do it a few times out of the year, because this focuses on earning during big holidays...and that only happens a few times each year.

    True. I've hit that rate several times this year, but its not an everyday thing.... If I was, I'd be doing 8.6 million a year, and that's still a little ways off ;)
