In today’s world, commodities do not only mean tangible products that are put into everyday use. Today, commodities include knowledge and information, and they too, can be a source of income. Let’s face it – information products are selling like hotcakes (they account for billions of income for thousands of entrepreneurs yearly).
People are willing to shell out money for information because of their thirst for knowledge; sometimes they’re plainly interested in something; or because they have need for certain data. Wouldn’t it be nice to be the one to provide the information that they want (or need) and be able to earn from it. That is what information product creation is all about.
The usual methods of selling information include affiliate marketing, the use of eBay, resale rights, and content sites. One could also opt to create an e-book that people can download at a certain amount. Those who are passionate in sharing their expertise on something could also help train other people by selling training courses online. The possibilities to earn by using one’s knowledge or expertise are limitless.
Perhaps the latest on info-product sales is being able to do business even when you are offline. It’s more like taking your website everywhere, every time. Try taking business cards with you when you are not infront of your computer and distribute it to people that you meet (just make sure that the name of your site is highly noticeable on those cards). It would also be better if the actual look of the website is printed on your business cards.
Added income is possible when an ‘infopreneur’ would take advantage of what’s happening around him at the moment. This means that where there are trends or fads, make the most out of selling information about them. Begin by creating a ‘fad site’ where all your fad information would go.
Another hot item would be speech information during election period. With the many needs for speeches and talks, someone who has absolute knowledge on the creation of a good speech would be making big bucks. Going back on e-books, even if you do not have skills in writing, as long as you could hire someone ‘out there’ to do it for you, you could still earn some great money.
Another great way to earn some extra income is by adding articles to your site. This is one surefire way of getting the attention of search engines out there. It is time-consuming, though, to add hundreds of articles to your site, especially if writing is not your forte.
Now that you know what to sell or what to create, make use of the power of testimonials for the information products that you are selling. The power of the positive words of others who have used the information that you have provided will greatly encourage others to buy it. If this fails, make freebies out of your information products. Give the customers a sip of the beverage that they would surely buy once they get to taste it. For instance, give away a 15-page informational e-book when a customer buys one other e-book from you.
There are so many ways to innovate the creation of your info products. Earning money online with the use of your brain has never been this satisfying.
