I used to do a lot of stock trading… then I realized I’m much better at making money on the internet then in stocks, so I left that game a couple years ago. However the rest of the world is addicted to the stock market, and why wouldn’t they be… it’s like legal gambling but with your favorite companies and your retirement! 😛

All joking aside, the stock market is huge and so is the money to be made by promoting online training course, brokerages, investing advice and so much more. Type in any stock related search into Google and you will see all of the ad spaces completely filled.

There is a lot of money to be made by targeting investors and there are new and creative ways to do this.

Just look at what Tim Sykes has done in the past few years… first he turned his $12k barmixtzfah money into a couple million by trading penny stocks, then he launched his own penny stock investing trading course and is now making a ton of money with is monthly training/stock alerts, while still cashing in on trading stocks at the same time! Tim Sykes also has a huge following on Twitter and it’s likely bringing in new paying subscribers for him every day.

So how can you tap into the massive money being made by pushing stock / investment related offers without having to rely solely on pay per click marketing and blowing your budget on just a few clicks?

Twitter might be the next best thing!

Even if you aren’t a stock trader or investor, you’ve probably notice that people will make hastags on Twitter, but with a dollar site. These are referred to as “Cashtags” and symbolize stock ticker symbols.

Mashable just did a nice report on what the most popular Twitter cashtags are. The winner was $APPL and you can see the rest of their infographic report below.

There are millions of stock quotes being mentions every day on Twitter, and this is a whole new industry for you to tap into. Since Twitter now offers their own advertising through their network, you can setup ad campaigns to target your audience based off these stats.
