Pokemon Go - Anyone here making money with it?
The Pokemon Go app was released on July 6th, 2016 to the US. On that day, it has been reported that there were 200,000 downloads.The download count is in the tens of millions now and Nintendo's stock has soared. They are making a lot of money with in store app purchasers from players trying to catch more characters to businesses that are trying to lure players. I wonder how many $99 packs of PokeCoins have been purchased in the last 12 days. Bloggers everywhere are rushing to get articles written and indexed to drive traffic to their website and take advantage of the BUZZ of this new game.
With this post, I am not looking for player testimonials. I don't really want to hear from those that have downloaded and played the game. I am not playing it. There is going to be many different scams introduced to try and take money from those that are trying to cash in from the phenomenal growth of this game. Is it possible to cash in with the excitement? I definitely see ways to turn this interest into income.
Be careful playing the game and be careful trying to cash in!
There are several new WA members here with pokemon in their username. I have found about 5 posts so far, mostly about playing the game. I know there are stories being posted on the Internet about the dangers of not looking where you are going while trying to find the pokemon. I don't know how many of these stories are true. Keep in mind that most of the reporting of these stories are to generate traffic back to a place that makes the person or business money. It is all about the advertising and sales. Every article I have read has got ads and/or affiliate products also posted on the page with the article. I have seen a lot of junk posts and I am sure you have too if you have been looking for it.. Nearly every lead system pitch page is trying to cash in on the game interest with promises of new business and sales using pokemon go.
