What is an infoproduct?
An infoproduct is information on a specific topic delivered in different formats. Popular formats are ebooks, ecourses, video and/or audio courses, print courses or a variety of all of these. Infoproduct means information packaged in a product.
How can I get started selling infoproducts?
The best starting place is to write about a niche topic which is of interest to you. While it’s not necessary to have interest in the topic, it will certainly help make getting started easier. Say for example you have a passion for organic gardening. You can research to see if this is a viable niche market and then write a short ebook on that topic.
You can then sell your ebook on your website and even set up an affiliate program for others to promote your ebook for a commission. Once your first ebook is a success you can write additional products – either additional ebooks or higher end products such as full courses or even print products.
How do I find a niche online?
Finding a niche isn’t difficult. It just takes a little thinking about the things that interest you and other people. Write a list first of all the things you think you may be able to write about. Then search through ezinearticles.com online to see if this niche is included. On this website you’ll find a variety of niches. Take a few minutes to visit the author websites to see what products they are promoting and how.
You can also read related forums online to your niche. What are people talking about? Pay attention to the problems they are having, could you possibly resolve these with your product?
You’ll also want to do your keyword research. Keyword research is important because it will tell you what topics people are searching for online. It’s important to do your keyword research first to avoid wasting a lot of time and money on a product people won’t be interested in. A great keyword research tool is Word Tracker.
What if I can’t write?
You don’t need to be a writer to write best selling information products. An information product online is best written in a conversational style. People appreciate this approach. Just make sure your product includes great information that truly solves the customer’s problems.
If you get stuck, try recording your information by simply saying what you want to say. Then have this audio transcribed and then simply go back and edit the content. This is an easy and quick way to put together information products.
Another few good options are, interview an expert, create an educational video series or hold a teleseminar and sell the transcripts and audio.
The possibilities to creating information products are endless and it doesn’t need to be difficult to get started.
