I’ve been testing sending the traffic from a couple of product-related niche sites to Amazon. I’ve had good luck with a low-traffic, high-dollar item, so I did a little searching to find more.
The widget below shows quite a few items that turned up in my search, but they are nothing that I plan on using. Feel free to use them to find ways to pull in some $400+ commissions, too.

Back around the beginning of June I was given the opportunity by Kelly Felix to review Bring the Fresh (Full Disclosure version). This is his latest project in which he has partnered with Mike Long.
Unfortunately I was sidetracked by a trip to Summer camp with the Boy Scouts, so I’m just now diving in.
I’d read some good things about the product, however, I really didn’t know any details before diving in. As I write this paragraph all I’ve done is scan the members’ area – I haven’t even read the sales page.
The volume of information within BTF is staggering. As an example, there are 48 videos, totaling more than 29 hours. Obviously it will take some time to go through this material.
The follow-ups to this post will give more details about the quality of the content.
I’ll follow along using the BTF methods and will show real results, where possible.
Finally, I’ll compare the information within the course to the sales page to determine if the product matches the sales copy.

You’ve found the perfect niche.
Unfortunately, when you try to register a domain name, you find that the .com, .net, .info, .us, .biz domains are already claimed.
So you head to Squidoo, HubPages, Blogger and WordPress, only to find that those domain names are claimed, too.
Since it’s very important to have your keyword phrase in your domain name, sometimes you have to get creative. Occasionally dashes between the words are all you need to try. Sometimes, however, you need a little more.
The list of prefixes and suffixes below can be combined with a keyword phrase to greatly expand the choices of available domains. For example, if your keyword phrase is “underwater baskets,” you might choose something like, “underwaterbasketssource.com.”
If your favorite domain combination is also taken, you can always add hyphens to the combination: underwater-baskets-source.com.
Here’s the list:
dotcom (best with one-word niches)
Finally, if you’d rather use an automated online tool to suggest your domain name combinations, try one of the following sites:
If you have a favorite domain name prefix or suffix that I’ve left off of this list, please let me know!

I thought it might be of use to some of my readers so I’ve packaged a few different versions of the theme. In addition to the header shown to the left, there’s a header for the following themes: pets, couples, medical/health, and a blank header to be used with your own image.

Watching the trends on Twitter can be a good way to do real-time market research. These trends can also help spot the hottest news stories – those that have “viral potential.”
Even for the average Twitter user, these hot trends often point out the coolest subjects.
There are lots of tools that can help you stay on top of the latest trends on Twitter without needing to be glued to Twitter all day. Here are some of my favorites:
- Twitter Search – It’s simple. On the other hand it displays the top 10 topics real-time in a basic display. Additionally, if you click on the tiny link for “Advanced Search,” you can do some pretty cool things.
- Tweetmeme – This site shows which URL’s (web pages) are being tweeted the most. If you’re interested in staying on top of the hottest stories or news, this site might be for you.
- Twitterfall – This strangely hypnotic site shows the real-time tweets that contain the selected trending phrase or your search phrase.
- Trendyobot – Follow this bot within Twitter and he’ll send you the latest trends as the start happening.
- #hashtags – This site tracks trending hashtags. Hashtags are a way of being involved in a wider conversation than with “regular” tweets.
- Twitt(url)y – This is another site that tracks the most tweeted URL’s. They present the information in a different format than Tweetmeme, so use whichever one you like best.
- Monitter – This site also tracks either the hottest trends or your specific search terms, but it also has a widget you can place on your website.
- Twist – Pretty cool Twitter trend site that displays a graph of the trend.
- Retweet Radar – This site shows the topics that are retweeted (RT) the most on Twitter. The topics are displayed in a cloud format. They also show the people and URL’s that are retweeted the most.
- Tweetizen – Shows Twitter trending topics and allows you to only show trends in areas that interest you.
- TweetGrid – While this site doesn’t give you the trending topics, I’ve included it as #11 because it’s a useful search tool.
If you know of a cool Twitter trending tool or site that I haven’t listed, place a link to it in a comment so that I can check it out, too.
