Digital products and information products are terms that are banded about all over the internet nowadays. People are selling information left right and center. Some people do really well at it, other people not so much. For a lot of people thinking about it, the idea fills them with fear, and they think that they do not have anything valuable to give or to sell. Does this sound like you? It is certainly something I have struggled with in the past.
The good news is that we all have information that other people can benefit from. You might not know exactly what it is yet, you may not have learnt it yourself yet, but if selling information is something you are interested in doing, then it is definitely possible. Before we get into more detail about how to go about it, lets just give a thought to why we might want to do this.
If you follow my blog you will know I am on a mission to use the internet to replace my income so I can leave my 9-5 job and achieve financial independence and the free time and opportunity that comes with it. I believe there is much more to life than spending a huge chunk of it at work! I have better things to do with my time, like travelling and visiting friends, exercising, eating out, self development, raising a family and just generally enjoying life without the worry of being able to afford it or having to go to work the next day.
What would having financial independence mean to you? Do you know what you would do with your time if you didn’t have to get up and go to work everyday? How would your life change? This is something I think about a lot and something I get very excited about and you should too! The thought of creating my own information product does feel scary I have to admit! But then so does the idea of working 9-5 for the rest of my life! So I know which fear I am going to tackle head on!
A little while ago I posted a blog that looked at the difference between selling physical products and information products online. In that blog post I concluded that I felt selling information products was the most effective and lucrative option to take when trying to make money online. So that it the route I’m taking. There are two main ways in which you can sell information. You can either create an information product yourself, or you can sell information products that other people have created. The second way is called affiliate marketing. I am taking a double pronged approach, so to speak, and will be doing both.
So if you are ready to start an information selling business and designing the lifestyle you have always dreamt of then check back in here on a regular basis. I am going to be showing you the steps I will be taking to create my own product. If you would feel more comfortable starting with affiliate marketing I recommend checking out wealthy affiliate.
