Everyone is talking about Pokemon Go. It’s on the news, it’s on social media… heck, it’s even on your mobile device!
Yes, Pokemon Go is everywhere and while millions of people are playing the game, a select few are trying to profit from the game as well. So far I’ve seen a few affiliate “email/zip submit” offers, digital gaming guides, Facebook groups and much more.
One of the most common and effective methods for making money with Pokemon Go on Android devices, is to simply become a resource for information. A good example of this would be every time someone plays the game and is locked out because it’s overloaded with players, or when they level up enough in the game to choose a team to join — what does the player do? They go to Google and search for answers of course!
With all of that said, one of the best ways to take advantage of the massive Pokemon Go craze, is to simply become a resource for information. Below I have listed three different sites and how they are using Pokemon Go content to massively grow their followings and site traffic by giving millions of gamers the best information they are looking for when they are trying to “catch’em all”!
Being that Pokemon Go is a mobile based game, it would only make sense for mobile resource blogs to cover such topics. AndroidHeadlines.com has done an excellent job with this ever since the game first came out. Topics covered range for mobile app usage, gaming cheats and articles on how the Pokemon Go app can affect mobile performance. Here’s a look at some of their top articles over the past week.
When you think about the world of super heroes and Marvel characters, you probably don’t think of Pokemon. However, that simply isn’t the case over at ComicBooks.com, where they are producing content like crazy and their comic audience seems to be loving it. Take a look at some of their most recent articles below.
Even sites that have nothing to do with technology, gaming or Pokemon are getting into the mix as well. The Guardian is a perfect example of this. They are one of the most well-known names in sports, news and opinion around the world. While their site is usually covering the latest news in sports, business, entertainment and politics, there sure is a lot of Pokemon Go stories flooding the site as of lately.
How Writing About Pokemon Go Can Grow Your Brand and Make Money
The most immediate return on investment from writing about Pokemon Go, is that you will have an instant supply of traffic flooding to your site — that is of course if you are using social media to promote it, and your content ranks well in Google. Each of the examples above are currently ranking at the top of Google for various Pokemon related search terms and also occasionally within Google News as well.
With such a flood of traffic coming to these sites, not only are they providing value to those looking for Pokemon Go tips and tricks, they are also gaining new users to their site. This traffic could potentially result in repeat visitors, advertiser clicks, signups to members areas of the sites and much more.
If you are still sitting on the sidelines and worried it’s too late to jump on the Pokemon Go craze, have no fear… Pokemon Go is still waiting to be released in various countries around the world — and many people still haven’t even downloaded the app yet. On top of that, we all know the game is going to continue to add new levels and make players want to keep playing as long as possible.
Pokemon Go is currently generating nearly $2 million per day — just in the United States! How much of this massive market will you start pocketing in the process?
