Very few people realise that it can be very profitable to promote affiliate products on public holidays.
I’ve always had tremendous success promoting products on Christmas day and New Year’s Day.
In fact I promoted one of my webinars a couple weeks ago on Thanksgiving. I must have had over a hundred emails from people asking me why I was promoting such an event on Thanksgiving.
Well as it turns out it was one of my most successful webinars to date and I had over 200 American attendees?? (And the conversion rate was good as well !)
This all started in 2009 when I promoted a high-end $2000 affiliate product on New Year’s Day. To be honest I wasn’t expecting to sell any products especially at that price.
This was a $2000 home study course that was shipped out to the clients, it was actually a ClickBank product believe it or not.
Anyway I ended up selling three, which gave me an affiliate commission of around $3000.
A $3000 New Year bonus….
Ever since then I’ve always promoted products on public holidays and done very well. It’s a great time to promote as other marketers don’t seem to send out emails on public holidays? So you end up with the market to yourself!
And think about the buyer psychology, people aren’t at work and are sitting around the house getting bored, and probably looking for an excuse to get away from annoying friends, relatives, and neighbours – not to mention the kids !!
So if you’re looking to make a little extra cash this year at Christmas I strongly advise promoting affiliate products on Christmas Day, Boxing Day (that’s the day after Christmas), and New Year’s Day.

Moving out of London
Two weeks ago I finally moved out of London into my new office on the south coast of England. I’m actually within walking distance of the beach!!
(Great for summer – not so good in winter !)
I love sitting in my new office looking out of the window at the view and watching the seagulls fly past.
One major difference that I have noticed is that everybody is so polite, especially when you go into a shop. The other thing is it’s so quiet, no traffic, no police sirens all day and all night, and no pollution….
I’m thinking about doing a south coast meet up once a month if you’re interested reply to this email, let me know if you have any locations in mind….
(Anywhere from Brighton to Southampton)
The London Meetup is back
As some of you may know I used to run a monthly meet up in central London. Well as of January I’m going to be starting the London meet up again.
The format is, a one-hour presentation by me -which is always pure content – and then the rest of the evening is networking.
Currently looking for a venue somewhere in central London which can hold between 60 and hundred people if you know of anywhere please reply to this email let me know.
