Easy Ways to Create Information Products

In this article I am going to talk about three quick and easy ways that you can use to create information products to sell online. Selling information products online is a great way to build an online business. Often people assume that the product to create needs to be in a written format such as an ebook and of course that takes a long time and can be off putting!

Well there are other much easier and quicker ways to create information products. In this article I shall share three of these methods with you.

The first method is using voice to text software.

Most computers or laptops come with free voice recognition software. This means that you can speak out loud and your computer will turn your speech into written text!

Talking is much quicker than typing for most people so this is a great way to create an information product. You will need to speak clearly and edit the text as you go along but it will still be a much quicker way to create an ebook.

The more you use your voice recognition software the more it automatically gets used to your voice and therefore the quality of the text produced becomes better each time.

The second method is interview an expert.

Find out if someone in your niche will be willing for you to interview them. You can then record the interview and sell this as an information product.

Let the person know beforehand what questions you will ask and that you intend to use the interview as a product to sell.

It will be free marketing for the person you are interviewing so of benefit to them as well!

The third method is to create an audio training session.

Instead of using voice recognition software to turn your speech to text you can just create an audio product. You can use free software to record you talking and then upload it as an mp3 file.

This is great for producing training information products as it is like teaching to a live audience except that you can do this in the comfort of your own home!

If you put these three ideas into practise then you will see that product creation is something that you can do and it needn’t take you a lot of time.

You can easily start creating your own information products every month if you commit to setting aside the time to do so.

Selling Information Products Online Made Simple And Easy

Are you someone who would love to make a nice income with information products? If so, then I know how you feel. Information products are easy to create, easy to sell, and can give you truly vast amounts of profits that you never thought was possible. If you’re currently selling products online that require a lot of inventory and management, maybe you should take a look at selling these kinds of products.

There are many reasons why you should consider selling info products. For one, you have unlimited inventory. Info products consist of: books, eBooks, paper and ink manuals, CD’s, DVD’s, membership sites, newsletters, seminars, webinars… or just any kind of product that offers nothing but pure information.

The most common form of information products that you will find online are eBooks. eBooks are “electronic books” that can be immediately downloaded after someone makes a sale from you. This comes with unlimited inventory, you can charge a lot for it, you can earn great profits, and you can make sales around the clock on autopilot. Just imagine waking up with sales in your email inbox – and you not having to do anything to ship out the product to your customer.

These are just a few reasons people online love selling info products. But it isn’t a cake walk. The path to success with selling info products is a good niche. It doesn’t matter how good your product is, how many testimonials you have, how much advertising you throw to your site, or etc. Without a good, low competition niche – it’s going to be tough to make money online with these forms of products.

Along with having a good niche, make sure your information product is full of quality. People want to buy and keep products that they feel are helpful and good. If your product is of low quality, and you charge $30 for it, you will more than likely get a refund from your product.

It’s easy to create a 100-page eBook. I’m not insinuating that “bulk” equals quality, but usually you will find that the more pages that there are in your eBook, the more information you can share, and the more value that your reader will get from it. This is marketing 101.

Make sure you have a good sales page for your information product also. If you want to make your product sell, you have to share all the reasons why someone should buy your product, and you have to share all the features and benefits of why someone should buy your product from you.

If you don’t know how to create a good sales letter page, hire a copywriter. There are many copywriters online who will create a good sales page for you, all for a small amount of money. Typically these copywriters will charge a few hundred dollars – instead of the big time copywriters who charge thousands.

Take these info product tips and use them in your online business today.

Good luck with selling information products online.

5 Easy Steps to Creating Your First Information Product

The idea of creating your own information products scares many who want to start their own online businesses. Why? Because they’ve never done it before. That don’t know where to start. In this article I want to share with you five easy steps to creating your first information product. It’s a method that I used to write a 99,000 word hardback book, and the same one I use now to create products for my online business.

If you experience any anxiety at all at the thought of creating your first information product, then you can imagine how I felt when I was given a contract to write a hardback book for publication. I had made some presentations about a tiny bit of the material that was eventually included, but at the beginning I had very little to start with.

If that’s your situation, then I have some encouraging news for you: Creating your first information product is not as hard as it sounds. Here are the five easy steps that I follow.

1. Identify the purpose.

Before you write your first word, you need to have a clear idea why you’re creating this particular product. It’s not enough to say that you’re doing it so that you’ll have something to sell.

You need to think about who will use the information that you’re going to share, and then write for them.

2. Jot down your thoughts.

I find this step especially to be rather a lot of fun. There’s no structure. You just write down anything and everything that you think might be relevant to it.

I usually keep a folder for future products, and every time I think of something that I think would be appropriate for it, I write a little note and put it in that folder. Then when it’s time to work on that product, all the information that I’ve gathered in the previous days and weeks is already there, waiting for me.

3. Identify the themes.

Remember that there’s no structure yet. In this step, all you have to do is look at each sentence or section in your notes and then write in the margin one or two words that describe the subject. Do this for all of the information that you have collected.

4. Organize the themes into a loose outline.

This is your first attempt to make an sort of structure out of your notes. There are no rules, so arrange and rearrange the subjects how ever you want.

5. Connect the dots.

Move your text under the respective themes, and then connect your ideas together.

When you finish, you will have an information product that your prospects will want. The more products you have, the more opportunities there will be for people to buy from you.

And selling those products is fundamental to making a success of your online business.

How To Research Information Products Before You Create Them

If you have ever fancied the thought of creating your own information product and publishing it but thought it was just going to be too expensive, then I have some good news for you. You can write your own information product and distribute it yourself online as a digital product.

All you need to do once you have written your masterpiece is to sell it from a website. Most people have a PayPal account these days and you can very easily create a payment button through their interface to place on your web page.

Before product creation commences you will first need to carry out some research into your chosen topic. You will find it easier to write your information if you have some interest and knowledge in what you are going to write about.

A good way to find out what sort of information people are looking for is to go to Yahoo! Answers and see what questions people are asking. Look especially for questions that occur regularly.

You can also visit forums and communities to gather more information. Use surveys or questionnaires to find out what information people are wanting to find out about.

By just carrying out a little preliminary research you will be able to determine some of the most common questions that crop up. Therefore identifying a need for information, you can then fulfill that need by creating an information product.

Any product you create needs to be of excellent quality that provides a solution to the problems that you identify. You can use the questions to provide you with inspiration for your chapter titles.

You need to ensure that there is a market for the product you propose to create. This is very important because no matter how good your information is, if there is no market, then you simply will have no one to sell to. If there are no other products in your market then you should worry. That could possibly mean there is no market, or at least no buyers in that market.

Look to see if there are already books and magazines that cover the subject you have chosen. If there are, then it is a good indication that there are people who are prepared to pay for that information.

You can also carry out a Google search for your specific subject matter and see if there are paid adverts on the page. If there are none, then it is highly likely that this isn’t a profitable niche and you should choose one that meets all these criteria.

By taking the time to carry out these few simple steps can save a lot of wasted time and effort. Too many people create information products and then look for a market to sell it to. You need to find the market and their needs first, create your information product and then put it in front of these people.
