    Making Money Online With Cinco De Mayo!

    I hope everyone is having a Happy Cinco De Mayo!  The fun is only beginning over here in San Diego.   Only wish I made the quick trip in to Mexico, but the weather just was not permitting today to make a trip down to Tijuana or Rosarito to enjoy it!  Nothing like getting some super tasty Lobster in Puerto Nuevo!  YUM!

    If you are creating a mailing list from your blog or website, holidays like Cinco De Mayo are just another way to make money online.  I like to take advantage of these small holidays by setting up a little shopping list on Amazon or just in a blog post with affiliate links to Amazon with products people could purchase to have their own Cinco De Mayo party!

    You can do this for all types of holidays.  It can be a simple post reminding people to get flowers for the occasion to a full blown blog post with a list of food items, music, decorations, gifts and more.  Just use your imagination.

    The great thing about this type of marketing is that you can pull it off without burning your list.  Most people like to get this information and although you won’t have great conversions unless your blog is specifically about throwing parties or something, but it will help the bottom line and also get your affiliate sales #’s up.  You can also test out something new to refine your marketing over the years.  If it turns out to be a gold mine, you can easily create party planner lists and target those that are specifically interested in this type of information.

    So get out there and make money online!

    Enjoy the rest of your Cinco De Mayo!
