How to Profit from Pokémon GO as a Blogger
If you’re a blogger and you haven’t found a way to tie into the latest Pokémon GO craze, you may be missing out on a lot of traffic and fun way to interact with your audience. You can easily work this latest trend into just about any niche. Let’s run through a few examples to give you some ideas and hopefully inspire you to explore this topic for your own blog.
Share Your Own Experience & Motivation
If you’ve been playing, share what you’ve learned and why you decided to play. Include some screenshots of Pokémon as you catch them for an easy and visually attractive post. For example, if your blogging about weight loss and getting healthy, you may want to share how playing this game has made you go outside more.
If you’re a parent blogger, you could share how you’re having fun with the kids playing the game. If you’re a business blogger, you may want to share some interesting strategies on using the app to grow your business. If you’re a food blogger, come up with some fun character inspired recipes. The possibilities are almost endless.
Write Up a Niche Specific Guide to Getting Started with Pokémon Go
If you find those posts getting some attention and that your audience is interested using the app to do what you’re doing, it may be worth your while to write a guide. This could be a single long blog post that may go viral. It could be a series of blog posts where you continually explore the topic. Or it could be a book or info product that you put up for sale on your blog.
Of course doing all of the above is another great option. Figure out how you can tie your niche and Pokémon Go together and start writing.
Curate Interesting and Informative Content
There’s a lot being written about Pokémon GO already. Blog posts, articles, videos, and social media posts are popping up everywhere along with plenty of images and memes. If you don’t want to write your own content, serve your readers by curating the most interesting and informative content for them. Share it on your social media accounts to grow your reach, or create curated content posts where you share a list of articles or images on a related topic.
Let’s Talk Monetizing
Of course you want to make some cash from this Pokémon craze as well. Once you get the traffic, think about what you can sell these players. We already talked about writing a short, niche specific guide. You could upload it to Amazon and sell it to them as a Kindle book, or create a pdf, video course or the likes and use your own shopping cart.
Last but not least, let’s not forget about affiliate marketing. Instead of creating your own product, make affiliate offers. These could be other people’s info products that are popping up everywhere, or any of the physical products available in for this popular franchise.
