The answer is not Walmart.com! I’m pretty fed up with the affiliate program over at Walmart, especially with trying to promote the Wii U pre-order. Every time I send somebody over there for a Wii U, they get the same message, “OUT OF STOCK ONLINE.” What a load of crap.
So, I’ve decided to now see what Amazon has to offer as far as the Wii U goes. There seems to be good availability of the Wii U on Amazon, and also they are running a program that lets you trade in your old Wii and 3DS for a credit toward purchasing a Wii U system. Sometimes up to $70, which is pretty good to me!
Whether you want the Nintendo Wii U Console – 32GB Black Deluxe Set or the Nintendo Wii U Console 8GB Basic Set – White , Amazon will most likely have the machine available and ready to be shipped by Christmas. Plus, these big products usually qualify for free shipping.
Whichever system you decide to go with, make sure you pick up the new New Super Mario Bros. U because it is friggin awesome. I mean, this time, you can use your own Wii Mi in the game…to play with Mario! How cool is that?
I’ve reported in my last post that the Furby toys for 2012 are a hot item. I wanted to wait a few weeks before I posted a follow-up post, showing indeed how the trend is increasing. As the Christmas holiday gets closer, I’m sure we’ll even be seeing much more Furby stuff floating around.
So for the past 90 days, the web search interest trend for Furby has steadily increased in popularity, based primarily on news headlines, but that seems to be the driving force behind “hot” items year after year:
So the next natural step for the consumer is to find these items and find them cheaply. This is easily seen by looking at the currently rising terms used to find information on the Furby for 2012. In fact, the terms Walmart Furby and Amazon Furby have increased by at the least 200% over the past 90 days.
What does this mean to affiliate marketers? This means it is time to start plugging your Walmart and Amazon affiliate links for Furby toys. I’ve already done so, and I will continue to do so for the next month.
The other rising search stars for the Furby toys is something I typically neglect to consider. What seems to go with toys, movies, cartoons, or whatever these days is an app companion for the iPad, iPhone or Android device. If you currently have an Apple iTunes affiliation (maybe through Linkshare), you may want to start some chatter with the Furby apps.
Oh wow, I just noticed this cool little Furby, the FURBY, Raincloud
