Pokemon Go - Anyone here making money with it?

Last Update: July 18, 2016

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.

Here at wealthy affiliate, you will discover all kinds of ways to make money with affiliate marketing. There is a lot of great training tutorials here that will teach you the right way to build a business online with a website and good programs. There are ways to use this pokemon go buzz to generate exposure and traffic. It could be profitable if you are able to convert this traffic to wealthy affiliate or to some other product/service. It may be a waste of time. I would love to hear from those that think it will help their business by writing articles about Pokemon Go.

Are you trying to make money with Pokemon Go?

Oh I wouldn't do that. Matter of fact, it has nothing to do with my niche.

Why would you want to play a game thats killing people. I think Nintendo should be held for murder

I don't think it is the game that is killing people. You can't blame Nintendo or Niantic for people being stupid.

That makes no sense - it's the people who play it that are responsible for their behavior, not the game itself.

I agree with Bo.

This discussion can go in a lot of directions and I should probably let this rest, but I can't. It isn't the game's fault that people are not watching what they are doing. It isn't the cell phone's fault that people text or play games when they should be paying attention to the road.

Maybe we should pull all motorized vehicles off the road. There would never be an auto accident in the United States,if you pull all vehicles off the road. IT WOULD BE MUCH MUCH SAFER!

Note: I do not support this statement of pulling vehicles off the road, I am simply adding this to illustrate my opinion that it isn't the games fault, or the cell phone's fault that these tragedies are happening. It is the fault of the person playing the game and not paying attention to what they should be doing.

People always seem to blame their own stupid behavior on something else to justify themselves Bo - not smart.

I never thought of that. I just found out about the Pokemon go thing this past weekend when my daughter was talking about it. She tried to tell me about it and I really don't know anything about it. I am not sure if I could use it on my website. I could review it. I will have to look. Thanks for the blog.
I like your go picture. Hope you don't mind if I use it on my website.

Thanks for the feedback Jude! It doesn't fit in with most niches. The bootcamp business niche blogs that are promoting wa may see some way to use this new BUZZ to drive some traffic.
