2 Reasons Selling Information Products Are Popular

If you want to sell information products online, then you should know that this could potentially be a very lucrative opportunity for you. Many people online sell information products all the time, so you should know that you can have success with it also. It isn’t hard – it just takes some marketing on your behalf.

If you don’t know what an information product is, then let me briefly explain to you what it is. An information product is simply a product that contains instructional information. This can come in the format of books, ebooks, CD’s, DVD’s, and even offline newsletters (or magazines). They’re very inexpensive to create, and you can earn a lot of residual cash flow from it.

I want to share with you the reasons why you will want to consider selling information products today. After you see the reasons, it will give you a good indication as to whether or not you will want to continue along this path. It’s a “lifestyle business”, and you will see what I mean. Here’s the first reason you should sell information products today:

1) Profit margins are high

I’ve heard a story of how this master marketer was able to sell a $497 video tape to a group of grocery store owners, on how to minimize theft, and employee turnover. The product cost of the tape was probably around $2-$3 (if not lower). But as you can see, the profit margins can be extremely high.

The same is true if you sell CD’s, DVD’s, or even ebooks. There’s the low cost of duplication, and you get to maintain all of the profits. And imagine the MORE profits and sales that you will get from selling to your current customers over and over again!

If you’re able to sell in a small niche market, more than likely you will get top dollar for your information product. You will have little competition, so you will have an opportunity to train the marketplace with your business and your style of advertising. The more area you can cover, the better. Here’s another reason why you should consider this business:

2) You don’t have to invest into inventory

If you sell an ebook online, first of all, the cost of the ebook is $0. You can right up a quickly 50-100 page ebook in a weekend, and then put it on the internet for sale by the following Wednesday. Plus, after you’ve created your ebook, there are unlimited downloads. Which means that you will NEVER have to ship anything out.

This is one of the joys of the information products business (or information marketing business). As you can see, this can be a lifestyle where you wake up in the morning, check your sales in your email inbox, eat breakfast, then get right back in the bed all day and watch TV. This is real life I’m talking here!

You could probably do well with selling information products if you enter into the right niche, create the right product, and market yourself effectively. It’s not hard, and this business can launch you into a new area of profitability.

Good luck with selling information products online today.

8 Key Success Factors For Selling Licensed Information Products

Selling a licensed information products offers you the opportunity to build a profitable business without having a product of your own. You don’t have to settle for commissions on sales of affiliate products, even though selling an information product to which you have “Resale / Reproduction Licence” is much like affiliate marketing, with a few key differences.

With an affiliate product you get nothing but a commission for your efforts – you do not gain any customers of your own since they are passed on to the seller.

With a licensed product it’s true you will have to do more work – you will need your own sales page, you will collect the money, you will deliver the product to them, you will also be responsible for providing customer support in most cases – although this is usually limited to sales and delivery of the product, not to the technical aspect of the product…

But the most important point is that you are building your own valuable customer base for your business.

Now there is never a sure way to succeed, but always a sure way to fail. Success cannot be guaranteed but there are some things that you can do to greatly increase your chances of success.

Let’s first look at the fastest way to fail so we can get that out of the way. The fastest way to fail is to do little or nothing at all. The product can sit there on your pc or desk, and if you don’t attempt to do something with it, you will fail. That is true of any business.

With that said, let’s start looking at how you can succeed.

1. Explore the Market.

It isn’t wise to buy into a product that is suited or targeted to a niche that you know little or nothing about. It could very well be an unprofitable niche or the product could NOT be what that niche wants. So before you purchase the licence, take a look at the market and the product and try to determine whether or not it could be profitable.

2. Test the Market.

If you have a hard time determining what a niche wants from the popular forums within that niche, you may need to run some tests before you purchase the licence. Find a related or similar affiliate product, that you do know that the niche wants or needs. Sell it using Google AdWords, build an opt-in list from that traffic, and then offer some free gift for those list members in exchange for taking a survey.

3. Be Different.

Once you’ve determined that there is a profitable niche and that the product is wanted or needed by that niche, buy it – and then be different. Remember that others are also buying the licence to the product. Make sure that you have a different sales page, and if allowed, a different branding for the product.

4. Spice Up the Package.

If it is allowed, you should definitely offer bonuses to your customers that other resellers are not offering. This makes your product more valuable, even though it is the exact same product. The package is different and valuable – which means more profit for you.

5. Keep On Rolling!

Most products will not be wanted or needed forever – especially when there are multiple people selling it. Make sure you are building an opt-in list, and creating or finding other licensed products that you can sell to your customers later on. Otherwise, you are headed down a dead end street.

6. Know and Follow the Rules.

Some people never even read the licensing agreement, and this is a huge mistake. You need to know what is and is not allowed, preferably before you purchase the product. It is also important to know whether marketing materials will be included in the package, and whether or not you are free to edit those materials.

7. Do Not Buy a Potential Freebie.

An important thing to look for in the resale rights agreement is whether or not the product can be given away for free. If it can, it really has no value to you at all. Avoid purchasing such products.

8. Buy the Resale Rights.

If you come across a great product then perhaps you can also buy the right to resell the resale rights to the product, i.e. you get a Master Licence. If you can resell the Master Licence to the product, i.e. you have an Enhanced Master Licence, this is even better. That way you have 3 products to sell, to both potential customers/users of the product and marketers who market in that niche as well.

As with all things in life, it is the ability to stay ahead of the game that will make or break a business and its profits. True, there are resellers out there who make nice income from selling the ‘been around the block” products but if you are new and not in the know then you could be parting with your money for a product or package that everyone else has!

As always my advice is to do further research. Difficult, I know, in the beginning but if you get a general feel that the product has not been knocking around for years you could be on to a winner.

It is often a minefield out there for people new to the business and more often than not you will be faced with choices of resale packages with cleverly written sales copy, with so many bonuses, etc. Unbeknown to you the package has been knocking around for over 5 years and that sales copy sucks you in and then hangs you out to dry!

In saying all this, the internet is a very big place – a massive market and just around the corner can be your next sale even for the old products. So do your homework!

2 Strategies For Selling Information Products Successfully

Don’t you just love selling information products? Well, you probably do if you’re making a nice living from it. But if you aren’t making a lot of money, then you will probably have to revamp your marketing plan to make it profitable for you. Most of the people I know who hate selling information products aren’t making any kind of money. So if you hate information products, I’m confident that you probably feel the same way.

But there’s no reason to hate information products. The bottom line all boils down to effective marketing. If you can’t market and sell information products from your own website, more than likely you won’t be able to sell standard “tangible” items either. You can ever delude yourself that doing this will be easier than selling information.

Hopefully this makes sense to you. There are a lot of things that you can do to make your business a success, and I want to share with you some of these things with you today. They are all highly effective strategies, and I’m sure that if you implement them in your online business, you’ll be able to see results with your information products soon. Here’s the first tip:

1) Get some coaching

Coaching can either be paid, or you can find a mentor who will take you “under their wing” and show you how to make money. But generally, people who give free advice and information like this wind up frustrated because the recipient generally doesn’t act on the advice. So this is why 98% of the people who will mentor you will ask for some kind of payment. This is just so that you don’t waste their time.

So it’s important that you actually do some implementation on your behalf. This is important so that you can see results from your efforts, and so that your mentor can be proud of you. The more support you get, the better. This is something that you will definitely want to keep in mind. Here’s another tip for having success with information products:

2) Go into a niche

This is where most people get lost at. When people try to sell offline tangible items, they think that it will be different and people will flock to their business to buy things. People like this generally wind up spending most of their time at flea markets trying to sell products that nobody wants. The same principle could apply to you.

Don’t sell products no one wants. Do your market research homework and develop products around a need or want in the marketplace. This is the best way to go about doing things. Don’t create the product first… always do the niche homework first – and THEN create the product for the market. You’ll see almost immediate sales if you do this… especially if you’re operating in a niche that not a lot of people are in.

Information products are some of the best products to sell online, and you can earn a nice living from it if you market yourself correctly. Take the time to learn more about marketing online, and how it can make your information products profitable.
