Launch Jacking is when you take advantage of the buzz and traffic for an upcoming or brand new product launch to earn affiliate commissions off of that product or a similar one you wish to promote.
For example, if someone was going to release a product called Make Money 2000, you might buy the domain makemoney2000review.com and build out a website with your affiliate links.
Then anyone searching for a review of the latest cool product Make Money 2000 will find your site, read your review, and then purchase through your links.
If you are not too familiar with the product, or find out it is crap, you can choose to substitute a product you stand behind to promote instead. In the example above, you would write an honest review of Make Money 2000 indicating you wouldn’t recommend it but instead recommend your product as an alternative.
But here’s why launch jacking works so well. When a new product launches, there isn’t much information about it yet on the internet. So when someone searches for the product, there aren’t many sites the search engines can pull up related to the product.
By creating and optimizing your website for the new product, you are prime to get high rankings right from the start!
