Part ONE of the 10 Ways to Make Money Online Series
By now I assume you have already downloaded and read the special report by Jimmy D. Brown that we're discussing in this series. If not, click the link above to see the original post and download the 30-page report.
The first method that Jimmy shares to earn at least $10,000/month online is to create your own products. In this post we'll review Jimmy's advice, and discuss the options for creating profitable info products...
Create and Sell Your Own Information Products
This first method of making money online can be found on pages 6-8 of Jimmy's report. He gives a few topic ideas for creating info products, but the topic and the creative slant for your product title is really up to you.
Personally I like short reports, simply because they are easy to create and easier to consume. Gone are the days of writing a 300-page $97 ebook. It's the 30-page $27 reports that are flying off the virtual shelves!
The goal is to brainstorm topics you might have some knowledge on or experience with, and then of course you'd want to do your keyword & market research as well.
The most difficult thing about creating your own products is... doing it. Seriously. Jimmy suggests that you turn off the ringer, lock the doors, shut off your email and instant messengers and set a goal. Then stick with it until you're done.
There are other options, of course, such as outsourcing or hiring a ghostwriter. You can research either one of those on your own at Google, but Jimmy suggests checking out Outsource Weekly.
Now if you're like most people, you got stumped about 2/3 of the way through Page 7 - where Jimmy starts using big words like: set up a website, lead-capture system, backend sales system, yada yada yada.
That's the exact reason that I published my own Fast Cash Strategy. You can check out the main page and see there's nothing fancy there at all. The goods are in the report though, and it works like a charm - without a website, without a list, and without all the yada yada yada. If you haven't read it yet, you can get it here for only $10. You'll also get another of my reports free as a secret bonus - it will show you exactly what I do to make money in super competitive niches.
The one thing you will need is a mailing list & autoresponder system - a way to collect email addresses of every buyer, and follow up with them. I use Aweber, which is the industry leader, and you can get a free trial to start.
You'll also need a way to write the report and publish it in PDF format. Most people use and recommend OpenOffice.org, which is free to download.
Read Writing Reports here on ClickNewz for even more inspiration. And be sure you read the Market Research link that I gave you above. Jimmy has a product you can check out as well: Small Reports Fortune.
Note: I had to come back and add that if you follow the link to Small Reports Fortune above, you can download a FREE 23-page report on making BIG profits with small reports. I'm printing it now myself - includes a couple of good case studies too.
Reports, Ebooks, and...
There are other formats to consider for creating info products as well. Some ideas include:
- Live Teleseminars
- Audio Products
- How-to Videos
It's no secret that creating your own info products is a great way to make money online. It's not even that difficult to do. For every single hurdle you could imagine or come up with, there's a fairly simple solution.
Let's make this easy: If you have a hurdle with creating your own products then post it below and I'll personally reply with a workaround, resources or some fresh ideas.
But in addition to having a product to sell for the purpose of making money, having your own product comes with other benefits. It puts you in a position to do Joint Ventures, to participate in popular online Giveaway events, and to set up your very own affiliate program.
p.s. Jimmy D. Brown is also the author of Membernaire - another product I am currently reviewing. Looks like a good one! Stay tuned for the next 9 parts of this series and the Membernaire review
