Hey you peeps of mine!
If you follow the tech industry at all, I’m sure you’ve noticed the whole big “Real-Time” trend going on right now…
The writing was on the wall a couple of years ago already, but now it’s the “IT” thing of the moment.
So what does Real-Time mean to us “small time publishers”?
It means a lot actually, and one of those things is its outright SPEED.
In this day and age, you don’t necessarily want to wait for days or even weeks to put together a product, a web page, a campaign… etc..
Nature loves Speed, right? And all that…
So what IS the absolute FASTEST way to make money on the internet, pray tell?
I submit to you this process:
- Log on to Twitter, and start watching the “trending” topics (the ones with the #hashtags, the most popular ones listed to the right of the interface)
- Pick a trending topic; something that people are incessantly talking about, and getting excited about.
- Find an angle to create a quick info product around that topic of extreme interest, and go right to work to doing it. Use max a few hours, you don’t want to have the trend phase out while you’re at work. A PDF, an MP3 audio product… honor your personal preferences, take your pick, and go to the races!
- Take your product, upload it to www.rt2buy.com and start promoting it on Twitter – WITH the appropriate #hashtags.
RESULT: if you’ve done everything right, matched your message to the trend and the market, you’ll soon have scores of people retweeting and buying your quickie product. As soon as you post it (and don’t forget to re-post with different titles; people don’t all read their twitter feeds all at once), people will be buying.
How’s that for FAST! From market research to idea to money in Paypal account in a few short hours.
A word of warning though: you’re basically creating an impulse buy, so don’t go overboard in your ambition to create the perfect product. You’re simply answering a call people are shouting out, and the product should be useful and fun, probably not too expensive (say, from $9 to $29 perhaps).
