Eventually as your information products business evolves over the next couple of years, you will find that you will have the opportunity to skyrocket your sales and profits without much efforts.

You could offer coaching packages, seminars, $1,000 “paper and ink” physical information products… and make yourself a fortune. People are doing this all the time, and they are making extraordinary profits in their business. Like I said, I know that you could do the same.

In this lesson today, I want to share with you some of the information products that you can sell online, and will help you to choose which one is best for you. Not all product models are for everyone. So if you’re stuck on what kind of product you want to create, this lesson can be very beneficial for you. Here’s the first kind of product that you can make:

1) An ebook

An ebook is one of the most common forms of information products that you see online – but they aren’t the only kinds. On sites such as Clickbank, Paydotcom, or JVzoo… you will find a slew of ebooks that you can promote, or host and sell your own ebook on these sites. You should know that creating ebooks are very easy to do.

If this would be your first product, you should strive to make an outline. Start with an ebook title, the copyright page, then proceed to your chapter titles. Your chapter titles can be mini headlines that entices someone to read more and get interested in buying. You should let your chapter titles be the basis of what kind of content to create for each chapter. This is an easy process. Here’s another info product that you can make:

2) A video

People love videos. Why? Well, if the product is really excellent, a good video can give someone an “inside look” into how to do something. This way, they won’t have to guess and wander if they are doing a strategy correctly. But these aren’t the type of videos that I would upload to Youtube.

If this is your core product, don’t even offer samples of it onto Youtube. Store your product videos on your web hosting provider’s service, and use Youtube as a marketing source to bring you more traffic. People perceive videos of high value – but only if you show them what to do, and how to do it.

These 2 forms of information products are things that you can use to boost your sales and profits simply and easily, and are things that are very easy to do. If you don’t know much about creating information products, make it a point to learn more about it, so that you can improve your chances of having success in this niche.

Good luck with selling information products today.

Information Product Creation

Information products are relatively easy to create and distribute in the internet age. Gone are the days of needing to have a printing press and an audio tape or CD duplication facility. Nowadays, anyone with a domain name and somewhere to host it can create an information product.

Of course, that doesn’t mean that you don’t need to know what you’re talking about in your new information product!

But even then, getting the knowledge that you need is easier than ever before. With sites like Amazon and formats like Kindle, you have almost instant access to knowledge about any conceivable subject. So you can immerse yourself in research for a few weeks and, at the end of the process, you’ll know more than enough about your chosen subject to be an expert.

That said, there’s a good chance that you are already enough of an expert in one or more fields to be able to create an information product. If friends and colleagues ask you for help on a regular basis, you’ve definitely got enough knowledge to be able to create an information product.

And if you’ve shared instructional videos on sites like YouTube then you may already have a following, even if you’re unaware of it.

The format of digital information products varies. It can be a seemingly simple product such as a PDF ebook. Or it could be something more complicated such as an audio or video.

Deciding on your format should be relatively easy. If your subject matter lends itself to being demonstrated then a video is definitely the way to go.

That doesn’t mean that you have to have a full blown Hollywood studio in order to be able to make videos.

Personally, I use a screen capture software that shows what I’m doing on screen and captures my voice so that I can explain what I’m doing. That format works very well for things such as software demonstrations, delving into the nuances of Google and many more topics.

It also works well with PowerPoint style presentations. So your information product can be similar to a presentation that you would give to a live audience.

If your video does need to show what’s happening in real life then you’ll almost certainly find that the camera built into your mobile phone is more than adequate. Most modern phones like the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy have top quality video built in.

Once your video is created, it needs to be rendered. Which is the technical term for turning it from the format stored by your camera or screen capture software into one of the regular formats that can be read by near enough any device.

I recommend that you use the universally read MP4 format for videos. If you decide to split out the soundtrack so that people can just listen to the audio version then MP3 format is the way to go for audios.

Then it’s a matter of using the control panel in your hosting or FTP software like Filezilla to put your new digital information product creation onto the internet.

Add a sales page and a payment processor such as PayPal and you’re set to go.

Good luck!

How To Create Information Products And Ebooks Easily

Do you know a lot about information products but don’t know how to sell them? About 97% of the people I come across know how to create an information product from scratch simply and easily. But when it comes to marketing, they are absolutely clueless (or just plain old lazy).

Creating your products doesn’t have to be a hard thing to do. You can create a simple eBook by simply researching a topic, learning about a niche, write up the eBook in Microsoft Word, upload it to “pdfonline” to turn it into a PDF document, and then BOOM… you have your very own information product. And depending on the marketing of your product, you can make it a success.

When most people get to the stage of internet marketing for their information product, they get confused. On one site they may find a huge, big graph full of demographic information and a lot of stats that just dumbfounds them. And then on another site, they will see a very simple way to make money with information products, and will think to themselves, “This is actually pretty simple.”

To be honest with you, I’ve never been the type to create pie charts, bar graphs, and detailed analysis about a particular group of people. I make my marketing simple… find a hot niche, find or create a product for it, get sales, and sell over and over again to my backend customers. That’s it.

I’m confident that if you take the same approach when it comes to marketing your information product, you can achieve good results. You will definitely want to have your own website. You won’t be able to go far online these days without a website. Maybe 10 years ago, but nowadays it just won’t work.

If you ever hear someone say that you can make $20,000 a month without a website, product, niche, internet access, or brain… don’t believe them. They will try to convince you that you can use “URL shorteners” like “TinyURL” or “Bit.ly” to promote your products without a website. This is just horrible advice. How can you be taken seriously without a website? Furthermore, what will you do when one of these services takes down your account for whatever reason? You need your own site.

Don’t stress so much over your product. Product is easy to create, and you can simply make an outline of the product to make it simple and easy. For example, if you created an eBook and you wanted to sell it, the title of your book should be a catchy headline. This is how you will stop people who walk pass your account and captures it from the corner of their eye.

Then as they read the table of contents, they should be mini-headlines too. If you have 10 chapters in your eBook, make each chapter title a headline. This will make it easy for you to write freely and easily without stressing about what to write about. This is what I do when I create my ebooks.

Information products are a great way to earn some good money in your spare time, and it can help you to have the lifestyle that you are looking for. Be sure to use them in your online business today.

Good luck with selling your information products online.
