Over the 5 years I've been doing this affiliate marketing thing, I have come across lots of best sellers lists that I find interesting and essential to the earning potential you could achieve and it is these lists of trends and best sellers that you can focus on to bring you some more affiliate earnings, but rather than producing simple promotions, you need to go all out on these things and filter through lots of related categories instead of just one.
So for example if you was promoting cell phones you would naturally promote cell phone cases and the other accessories that go with it and this will be your affiliate funnel of products that you will promote on your blog and email series but in a staggered approach and by doing it this way you will be in a position to keep a head of the new releases within your niche.
Spotting trends and best sellers should come a close first and one that could compliment your main promotions, you'll find these best sellers lists all over the internet and in supermarkets and brick and mortar stores as you will see products on offer that just seem to sell out quite quick, it's best to take note of these and see whether these purchases are seasonal and just really fads that disappear.
Bestsellers are the products to watch out for and can add considerably to your affiliate earnings if you plan ahead for the fact of current bestselling trends.
Identifying hot trends is easy with the right online tools and in some respects the right offline mindset to spot them.
Keyword trends could be something positive to look into for good searchable and profitable keywords that help to build your business online with affiliate promotion.
