Breaking News ...
Have you ever seen something on the news and immediately jumped onto your computer to find out more information on the topic? Most topics that are in the news get immediate exposure online, and this leads into many opportunities for Internet marketers.
Just think of the opportunities that were presented online when Pfizer announced that they
had just released Viagra, a "special drug just for men". This was breaking news, and a
large portion of the 40+ aged men were scrambling to their computers to find out more information.
When selling pharmaceuticals was allowed by Google without a square trade ID, selling
Viagra was easier than giving candy to a 3rd grader on Halloween, and many people made a fortune selling this and other pharmaceuticals.
A little tip that we use to keep and eye on breaking news within specific industries is
to set up Google Alerts. This allow you to pick the keywords and networks that you want alerts from.
We suggest using all networks, but if you are going to choose one in particular, choose the
news network as it will distribute the most current "breaking news" directly to your inbox.
This info in turn can be applied to your PPC or article marketing campaigns.
