Do You Know Enough To Create Your Own Information Product?

If you have an online business and you are not creating your own products then you are basically leaving money on the table. Having your own products that you have created yourself really can build your credibility online as well as increase your overall revenue.

However, one of the things that can hold people back is a lack of confidence and thinking that you don’t actually know enough in order to create a product in the first place.

So in this article I am going to show you how you can find out if you have enough information, if you know enough about your particular niche and therefore give you the confidence that you need to begin creating your own products.

In addition, if you find that you are lacking in knowledge then I shall show you how you can gain the expertise you need to then create your own products.

Do you have enough knowledge?

I suggest that you visit your local library or bookshop and you have a look at a least five books that have been written about your particular niche. These should be information books, so books that are telling you information about particular topics in your niche.

Having read through these books see what you actually know yourself.

  • As you read through the book are you able to understand what is being said?
  • Are there more up-to-date bits of information that you know should be added but is missing from the book?
  • Do you agree with what’s being said or do you feel that you could improve on that information in any way?

As you read through the book see if you can identify with the information and if you can then are you able to come up with even better information? If so, then you know you have the knowledge to create your own information products. In fact you might find out the you know more than some of the authors of the books you have just read! This is certainly something that happened to me and gave me the confidence to start creating my own information products a while back.

What if you don’t have enough knowledge

If you read the books about topics in your niche and you begin to feel uncomfortable and you’re reading it thinking I don’t actually know that or there are some parts that you don’t understand then these are the particular topics that you are lacking in knowledge about.

These are the things that you need to go away and research about and actually learn it yourself. Ideally you will put those things into practice so that you then have your own experience to share when you create your own information products about those particular topics.
