Ideas for a Successful Info Product


Selling information products is a big part of the overall internet marketing business. Every single year, there are millions of sales of info products being made, such as e-books, video courses, membership site subscriptions, etc. While the niches vary, info products all have one thing in common: they teach the reader how to do something or to solve a problem that they’re having, such as getting their dog to stop barking, starting an online business, fixing computer problems, etc.

There are many “make money online” guides and websites which tout selling an info product as one of the best ways of making money on the internet. Of course, it’s possible to be quite successful by doing it, but if you want to ensure that you will be able to actually make some money from a product that you’ve created, there are some things that you need to know first. We will look at some things you need to consider before you actually put up your product for sale.

Think Whether this is Actually Something You Want to Do

Putting together, marketing and selling a successful info product is something that will take work. Even if your goals are just to make a few hundred dollars from the a very basic product, you will need to put in at least a few days work into it. Therefore, it is not something for everyone. There are plenty of other things that you can do to earn money from an online business, such as affiliate marketing, reselling physical products on online shopping sites, providing services, etc. which can be just as profitable as creating your own product and selling it to people on the internet. The bottom line is that you would need to make sure you’re actually interested in creating an info product, as opposed to simply be interested in making money online by selling “something”.

Research and Choose Your Niche Properly

Choosing the right niche will be one of the main factors which will determine whether the product that you create will be a success or not. You can have the best and most original content, and deploy really good marketing efforts, but if you choose the wrong niche, you could end up just wasting your time. One of the most common mistakes that people make is selecting a niche that is overly broad and thus too competitive. If there are a thousand other products already being sold which claim to provide the same information to the buyer as yours, making a decent amount of sales will actually be quite difficult. Therefore, going after a niche that is still in demand but is not completely saturated with other products is the best way to achieve success.

Tomorrow, we will go into more details about selecting the niche for your product and another important part: thinking of the content that you will include in it.

Efficient Video Marketing Uses

Efficient Video Marketing Uses


We have all seen mentions about how video marketing could be useful in terms of making money online. But the issue with it is that few business owners use it, and many of them don’t really do it well. Can you use video sharing sites like YouTube and Daily Motion to attract some customers to your website? Definitely. Here are some tips that you will find helpful for this:

 

  • Use public video sharing sites and not your own server

 

The obvious advantage of this is that you will be saving bandwidth, as the videos will be hosted on a site such as YouTube and not your own server. Another advantage of this is that more people will be able to see your videos if they search for their related keywords. If you host your videos on your own server, they can only be seen on the places where you put them, such as websites, blogs or social media pages.

 

  • Put your website and business logo at the beginning and end of your video

 

Even though YouTube allows you to put links in the description (which you should do as well), you are better off putting your website in your video as well. This is because some people may see your video and choose to embed it on their own website or blog, or share it with social media. If your video goes viral and is seen by a lot of people, chances are it will be embedded on a lot of sites, so to get the most traffic from this effect, your website must be present in the video itself.

 

  • Give useful content to your viewers

 

It is said time and time again, nobody comes online to watch commercials, there are enough of them on TV. The content of your videos therefore needs to be relevant to your products and niche, without looking like you are only promoting your website or goods. Instructional or informational videos are the best. For example, if your company sells replacement iPhone screens, then having a video which demonstrates how to open up the iPhone and change its screen without messing up the phone would be quite useful. It can also be used for intangible products such as guides and learning materials. So if you sell language courses, you can create a video which teaches some important phrases, pronunciation, words, in another language, then at the end refer the viewers to your website so they can check out the product and see if it is good for them.

 

  • Don’t give up if you don’t get many views

 

It is a fact that most videos will not achieve millions of views, especially if your niche is very specific. The issue is quality and not quantity. You can make sales with just a handful of viewers that are truly interested in the content of your video and the product behind it, while uploading a video that gets thousands of views because it is “cute” or “funny” may not bring you any serious site visitors.

Selling Digital Products in Your Online Store

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Selling Digital Products in Your Online Store


We’ve seen that you can sell plenty of different physical products in your own online store. In fact, most e-commerce websites specialize in selling products that can be shipped to the consumer. But what about digital products which can be downloaded instead? Obviously, e-books and online courses come to mind. The majority of such digital products are actually sold on a website that is dedicated to one specific product, however it is possible to build a web store around digital products as well, offering a wide range of products such as e-books for download.

But this can be just as hard, if not in many cases harder than selling physical products. However, here are some tips for you if you would like to sell digital items.

  • Focus on a specific, well researched niche

Unless you have a very good marketing plan or already have a bunch of people that would be interested in buying your products (i.e. you have an email list or some past customers), choosing a niche that is too broad will simply lead to trouble. You will have a hard time attractive decent traffic that will convert well. For these reasons, you should avoid niches like “Make Money Online”. This is too broad. But you could, for example, do some products about “Making Money Online from Twitter”.

There are plenty of different niches when it comes to info products. These could be: learn to do magic tricks, how to maintain your car, teach your dog to do tricks, how to make money from real estate, etc. The more specific you are, the better.

  • E-Books are not the only product you can sell

While they are definitely the most popular when it comes to digital products to sell, you should know that e-books are not your online available choice. For example, you can sell things such as web scripts, website templates, software, etc. Basically, anything that can be digitally delivered to your customer will do the trick here. There is a lot of money to be made in e-commerce when selling virtual products and you need to go beyond simply thinking about e-books.

  • Combine physical products and digital ones

While some people may not recommend it, you should know that it is possible to successfully combine selling digital products together with physical ones. But your success will depend on just how you do it. Your digital products will need to be in the same niche than your physical ones. So if for example, your web store is in the business of selling pet products, then you can include guides about training your dog, or plans to build a recreational area for your dog in your back yard, etc. Basically, anything that is related to your original niche. You can sell these e-books, but they can also be used to add value to your merchandise. If a customer makes an order over a certain amount, for example, you can include a free digital product for them. This is a great way to make your site more competitive.

Are MLM Opportunities a Good Way to Earn Money? Part 3

Are MLM Opportunities a Good Way to Earn Money? Part 3


Previously, we’ve seen some of the issues regarding making money online with MLM offers. But what if you’ve decided that you would like to make some money with them? Here are a few tips that will help you profit from this kind of business opportunity.

  • Don’t stay stuck on only one opportunity

If you take a look at some of the leaders in the MLM business opportunity world, you will see that they participate in various different money making opportunities. The reasons are simple: if one opportunity dries up, there are others that can be scaled up to make more money. Therefore, don’t get attached to only one program and treat MLM opportunities for what they really are: a vehicle for you to make some money.

  • Choose business opportunities with good products

The product is an important part of any business opportunity. There are certain things that you need to ask yourself about it: is it something that is really useful? Is it priced in a way that will enable you to make a decent profit from selling the product instead of constantly hounding others to become distributors? It is something that will last for at least a few years, or just a fad that will be over in a couple of months?

  • Go with MLM opportunities that do not focus exclusively on promoting to friends and family

While some people may be able to pull this off with success, promoting to friends and family is not the best way to go. Sure, a few may sign up, but if you limit yourself to just people you know, then you have a limited pool of prospects, who are actually low quality prospects to begin with (they probably aren’t interested in a business). A good business opportunity to take part in is one that will provide you with some tools and training on generating leads and prospects by advertising online.

  • Join an opportunity early

This gives you a good advantage over those who come later on. There will be less marketing material online about the business that you are in, meaning that you will be dealing with a lot less competition when you start out. Essentially, this will make acquiring leads and prospects, as well as clients who are interested in the products, much easier than an opportunity where there are already hundreds of thousands of distributors competing for the same resources.

  • Learn independently

While many MLM businesses give you some training materials on how to make your business grow, there is plenty of third part material available online for free that will teach you how to do that as well. You may even discover some things that you didn’t know and that wasn’t covered in the training materials of your business opportunity. Therefore, if you want to succeed, you need to be able to find information independently and use that information to build and grow your business as needed. Spending a few hours a week on research and learning can definitely go a long way.

Why Multiple Streams Of Income Are Important In The Online World

Why Multiple Streams Of Income Are Important In The Online World


If you’ve been reading certain guides on online business, you may have been told that in order to succeed you need to have “multiple streams of income”. Now what does this mean? And most importantly, is it actually true or is it simply a gimmick that is used by product creators to try and have you buy their guides?

Simply put, having multiple streams of income means that you are making money online through various different sources. It’s actually as simple as that. And it is also a concept that can be applied to any online money making activity, whether you are running affiliate offers, selling your own products, providing services or publishing pay per click advertisements on your site.

Now is it something that is really necessary to have? If you are running a business that is bringing you a full time income, then the answer is yes. Now why is that? So that your business can keep operating even if one of your income sources declines or dries up completely. Sure, you may think that it won’t happen to you, but if you’ve read any internet marketing forum, you will find plenty of stories about it happening to other marketers.

There are certain products or offers which are only popular during a certain time and then their popularity decreases. Think of the Acai Berry CPA offers that were all the rage about a year ago. Sure, a lot of marketers made money from them. Some made very serious amounts of cash. But a few months after it peaked, the offer started going down due to the fact that the product received some negative press due to questionable claims made by manufacturers, plus many people complaining that they were having a hard time canceling their subscription to this rebill offer.

There has also been cases where some smaller CPA or affiliate networks were having trouble paying those who run their offers. Some people were getting paid late, others ended up not getting their money at all in some cases. Obviously, if you only work with one network and they have trouble paying their affiliates, this will spell trouble for your business as well.

Organizing multiple streams of income is not difficult at all. Say if you are a CPA marketer, you simply have to work with a few different networks and run some different campaigns on each. You don’t even have to do it all at once if it would be too hard for you to manage. For example, you could run offers from network A for the first half of the month and network B for the other half.

If you are a freelancer such as a content writer or web designer, advertise your services on a few different sites and not only one. Also, work with a few different clients if possible. That way, if one of your regular clients who you’ve worked for during many months suddenly doesn’t need any work done during this month, you won’t be left scrambling to find other ones.

Make Money Without A Product Of Your Own

Make Money Without A Product Of Your Own


If you have a product of your own to sell, then you’re not going to have a lot of trouble making money online. Just set up a website to sell your product on, and then work to promote it. Of course it’s a little more complicated than that, but the concept is simple enough – promote and sell your product. If you don’t have a product of your own, you can still make money online. There are a few effective methods for making money on the internet that don’t require you to create a product of your own.

Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing is the process of selling products for various advertisers. One of the easiest methods is to sell ebooks and other digital products available on Click Bank. Just create a page that pushes the product, and do a little advertising of your own either through an ad network, or by using social media sites, and you’ll be on your way to affiliate marketing success.

Blogging

Set up a blog that covers a particular niche. Put ads for a variety of products related to that niche on that blog, and as your traffic grows, so too will your advertising revenue. Update your blog frequently. At the very least, update it several times a week, though, ideally, you should update it daily. It’s going to take some time to make your blog profitable, but if you stick with it, you’ll get there eventually.

PLR Products

Private Label Rights, or PLR products are digital products, usually ebooks, that you can buy, edit, and sell. You don’t have to do the full work of writing an ebook from scratch, but you can earn money as though you had. It’s important to take the time to edit the PLR products you buy – you don’t want them to appear too similar to someone else’s product. With a little bit of money, and a little bit of work, you can start selling a modified PLR product in no time.

If you have a product to sell, you’re going to have very little trouble making money online. If not, you can keep these things in mind to help you get your online business off the ground. Affiliate marketing, blogging, and PLR products can all help you to get your business up and running without having a single product of your own.

Using Forums to Market Your Website

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Using Forums to Market Your Website


Using a forum to market and monetize your website is a great idea. There are two different ways you can do this, one is by marketing on other people’s forums, and the second is to create your own forum.

Forums are a great way to market to a very specific area. Sure, you sometimes see a forum that is about general topics, but mostly the topics discussed are very narrow minded (in a good way). For example, there are massive forums on cycling, soccer, social networking, making money online, or knitting.

There is really no limit of what a forum can be about, if there are passionate and interested people about a subject, they will most likely find their way to a forum to discuss the topics.

Using Other People’s Forums
The easiest and cheapest way to market your website via forums is to use someone else’s already established forum. This way, the cost of entry is much lower, in both monetary and time terms. All you need to do is register on the forum, read the rules, put your website in your signature with a catchy phrase that will entice people to click on it, then start posting on the forum. It is important to engage in conversation, rather than spamming the established members already (they will not take kindly to that). Engaging and holding an intelligent conversation is essential here, because this is the first time your potential visitors will ever see what you have to say. Make sure you add value to the forum and post several times a day or week in order to maximize your results.

Creating Your Own Forums
Another way you can use forums is to create your own forum to allow your followers to engage with you and one another. This will help create a sense of community around your site, especially if you are already getting comments. The problem with this method is that you need to have viewers already to leverage them into becoming forum members. This is usually one of the later aspects of a website to come along, simply for that reason. But once you do have established readers, it could be a great way to promote your topics, engage in conversation, and even get new ideas for content and products.

Making Money Online In a Bootstrapped Budget

Making Money Online In a Bootstrapped Budget


Many people hear about other people that make money online without spending a single penny, and jump right into it with no preparation, and then wonder why they fail.  Then, they also proceed to tell the lie that making money online without spending anything first is impossible.  Well, they are dead wrong.  You can definitely make money online without spending anything, and it all starts with a simple plan.

Your plan doesn’t need to be elaborate, but it must include goals.  Your goals must be designed to help you spend your limited time in the most effective and efficient ways possible.  90 day plans are the most common, and seem to have the most success.  They allow for enough time for you to accomplish what you need to, without giving you too much time, or rushing you.

In order to obtain your goals effectively and efficiently, you should work backwards from them, and form a checklist of what needs to happen in order for you to reach your goals.  This checklist can be as long and as detailed as you need it, or as short and vague as you need it.  It depends on what you need to be successful.  Remember, the amount o detail someone puts into their plans may not be right for you, and vice versa.  This checklist is going to be the strategy for your plan, so make sure you do a good job on it, otherwise your plans with fall through, and your goal will become unattainable.

After creating your checklist, be sure to analyze each step, and how long it will take, and give yourself a fair amount of time for everything.  Giving yourself too long will result in you probably becoming distracted, while giving yourself too short of a window will cause you to miss deadlines and become discouraged.  Once you know how long it will take, create a schedule, and get started.

There are many free programs out there, and free services, which, if taken advantage of properly, can result in you making money without spending anything.  It all relies on you sticking to your plan, though.  If you cannot stay on a schedule you created yourself, how can you make money doing anything? Let alone on the internet.  All you have to do is complete your tasks on time, and treat yourself like your own employee, not your own boss.  This way, you will be under pressure to reach your deadlines, and everything will work out, resulting in free money.

Make Money Blogging Online With Niche Blogs


Making Money OnlineAs a member to my program I will show you how to set-up a network of successful niche websites built on WordPress.  WordPress is a content management system that is free to the public and is mainly used for Blogging.  A blog can be used as a personal diary to write daily articles about anything you like.  Nearly all online companies use a blog, as blogging is a great way to drive traffic to your website and attract a reader base.  The reason blogs are so successful is because search engines love a website that is updated on a daily basis with unique information especially a WordPress blog because they are optimised for search engines.

The best way to make money online is to start your own blog on any niche you like.  My advice is to set up a blog in a niche that you have a personal interest in.  For example if you’re into gadgets or electronics set-up a blog dedicated to writing reviews and news about electrical items.  If you have an interest in health and beauty set up a blog writing about the latest health and beauty products and so on.  If you have an interest in finance set up a blog about the latest news.

If you’re serious about making money online with your own network of blogs then I highly recommend you to join up to my membership program and watch my video tutorials on how to set-up a successful blog and drive traffic to them and make money from affiliate marketing.
