Have you heard that JK Rowling, author of the wondrous Harry Potter series, has instituted a suit against He Who Wants to Publish An Unauthorized Harry Potter Encyclopedia?
While one can never tell just how this will play out, one thing is definitely certain – Harry Potter is still a hugely popular cultural phenomena that has been embraced by millions of consumers all over the world. We’re talking America, England, China, Japan, the Middle East, Russia, India and beyond…scores of languages, thousands of cultural merchandising items (are you buying a clue yet?)….in other words, there’s an unlimited amount of Harry Potter items you can sell via affiliate links and market for years to come.
Just look at some things that are available right now:
Nice, eh? There are plenty of sites dedicated to Harry Potter already, of course – you only have to look at
to see quite how popular Harry Potter is even today.
The question, of course, is how can you take advantage of this?
How can you make money from Harry Potter?
Actually, it’s not that difficult at all. You can start for free by creating a blog and incorporating eBay/Amazon affiliate links in your template…that will ensure that every daily post you make about Harry Potter will have items that appeal to your targeted audience. I do this myself at my MacGyver-themed blog – how do you think I’m able to pull in customized Macgyver T-shirts?
There are dozens of other things you can add to a niche site or blog about Harry Potter. You can blog about Harry Potter in Education, Harry Potter’s legal age countdown, Harry Potter and Religion, Harry Potter and the iPhone of Doom, …. just about anything you can imagine can be applied to the world of Harry Potter (anyone up for Harry Potter iPods?).
Trust me, this is a very feasible method of making money online – I already do the exact same thing for World of Warcraft, Second Life, and a host of other niches as well. All it takes is patience, a super feedreader and lots of creativity.
