How to establish residual income online

Updated on March 31, 2010

Creating Information Products

Creating information products could be your path to riches. Everyone has information that could be used to create a product that others may be willing to pay for, and share with their friends and family. It can be based on anything such as weight loss or game cheats. Maybe you found a way to save money shopping that you want to share with the rest of the world. Information products can be your path to success if you take the route necessary to create the product.

The great thing about information products is the fact they can be created and duplicated an unlimited number of times with little to no cost to you. You don’t have to worry about paying thousands of dollars publishing books that may not sell. This path could cost you a lot of money, but information products are a safe alternative.

Information products don’t have to sell. If the product fails on the market, you could always give it away as a free download. Free downloads are not a waste of time or money because the results could pay off dearly. Maybe you want to bring customers to your website or affiliate products you may be promoting, or you may want to build your mailing list by giving away free products. These methods will pay off in the long run because it gives you the opportunity to sell more products over a long period of time, instead of making a 1-time attempt to sell one product. Information products will most likely be distributed to multiple people, making it easier to earn money from potential customers.

To help with your campaign, you should

1.       Research the market to make sure your valued information is lucrative- Finding a good market to base your product on is probably the most important step in the whole process. Say if you created a product based on making money online, the earning potential skyrockets because everyone wants to know about making money online. Creating a product based on cat food isn’t gonna earn you much money. Find something that you know a lot about but can make some real money with. Remember, passion isn’t enough to make money. You have to make sacrifices.

2.       Set up a website- Setting up a website can be one of the best things you could possibly do for your product. The reason this is so profitable is because when you sell your products, you get to acquire the email addresses of your customers, making them members of your mailing list. Your mailing list can then be used to offer them more products in the future. If they find your product to be a good buy, then your sales are guaranteed to increase. A website also gives your products more appeal.

3.       Do good keyword research- Your product must be found in order for you to generate sales. Keyword Paralysis is an information product that teaches you the basic keyword optimization techniques to establish yourself along the highly ranked sites on the internet today. Best of all its free. Being able to be found through the search engines within the top rankings guarantees thousands, maybe millions of visitors to your website and product(s).


Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate marketing works hand and hand with information products. Placing images in your eBooks and including your affiliate links will help you to generate sales easy. If the customer decides he/she wants to purchase the product within your eBook, they can simply click and land on the purchase page. That’s the beauty of the Internet. You may also promote these products within audio clips and videos to increase your sales.

Because affiliate marketing is such a big business, some people will manipulate your links in an attempt to generate income from your efforts. There is a way to avoid becoming a victim of this scam. All you need to do is create a short URL of your affiliate link. This URL will redirect those who click it to your affiliate link. This generates revenue for you and protects your campaign.

Affiliate marketing doesn’t always refer to selling products. You may also participate in programs that have nothing to do with selling products on your end such as Google Adsense. These types of programs use a different approach to marketing. Although the main objective is to sell products and services, you don’t have to promote these products. You simply place some sort of advertisement(s) on your website or blog and the promotions pop up automatically. By helping these websites generate traffic and make sells, you earn money when potential customers visit their website(s) via your marketing campaigns.

There are so many techniques that can bring great income to any affiliate marketer. To be a Super Affiliate Marketer, you must take a look at all of your options. Look at what you can do to make these products more appealing to others and how you can bring products into the spotlight. Take a look below and go over a few of the techniques that marketers use to promote products.

1.       Popunder ads- People have become used to pop-ups and will quickly close them before they load. This causes you a decreased amounts of money earned from your campaign. Pop-unders are the better alternative because they load in the background, equaling higher payouts and low interference. You may also limit the amount of times a visitor sees pop-unders on your website.

2.       U se RSS Feeds- RSS feeds spread information where people can’t access it at from their computer. Maybe they’re viewing the internet through their mobile devices. This allows you to syndicate or distribute your content amongst other websites, whether mobile or not. This brings your information to a larger audience. Its one of the most useful tools you may be able to find on the Internet today. Some programs allow you to freely utilize this feature. With the many websites that host RSS feeds, you could receive thousands of visitors to your website on a daily basis.

3.       Article Marketing- Article marketing has to be one of the best methods you could use to promote affiliate programs. Articles are targeted. This brings you targeted traffic because the people reading your articles want to know everything there is to know about what it is you’re talking about. There are thousands of article websites that allow you to submit your content. These websites then host your articles on their website, as well as other third party programs within their circle. That’s why article marketing is a great choice in promoting affiliate products.


Resell and Private Label Rights Products

It can be a difficult process trying to create information product(s) to sell. Luckily, there are products out there that come with licenses that allow you to sell, distribute, and edit in any way. These producrts can also be claimed as your own, earning you 100% profit.  Maybe you don’t have enough time on your hands to create your own product or don’t know what to create a product about. That’s where resell and plr products come into play.

If you are looking for products to sell, there is a package available online that comes with over 10,000 articles w/private label rights, 5 software packages with resell and/or private label rights, 100 eBooks with resell and/or private label rights, and video clips and audio clips with resell rights. You also get a free membership to receive every new resell or private label rights product release free of charge. Get your hands on 10,000+ products for only $10.

To successfully promote and earn from resell and private label rights products, you must know how to properly do these things. You must know what to do when you get your hands on these products and where to sell them at. Look below to find a few techniques that have made a lot of successful Internet marketers. These techniques came from the PLR Gangster eBook. Download your free copy.

1.       Never leave PLR products the same- Leaving plr products the same way you received them can be dangerous (figuratively speaking of course). There are probably thousands of other marketers on the Internet with that exact product. Most likely, they were too lazy to change any of the information within the product. This lowers the amount of money you will be able to sell this product for and forces you to do price competing. At least change the title of the product to give it some sort of uniqueness. The Internet is a vast universe. Leaving your products the same will get it piled up with the thousands of other products with the same name.

2.       Give your product away for free- If you plan to generate any future business relationships with potential customers, giving away free products could be a great route to follow. Because everyone loves free, they will begin swarming into your website to download your product, whether or not you request them to optin. Optin requests allow you to have a lifetime connection with those people. Offering free products of value will make it much easier to sell products to that same audience because they feel you offer only valuable content.

3.       Create Physical Products- Creating a physical product brings a whole new customer base to your campaign. It’s quite simple to accomplish. With the new line of programs available in the world today, you may now create physical products and only pay when your product sells. This allows you to keep the money in your pocket in case the product fails. PLR products are ideal for this.

      Another great hub. I've always been wary of starting anything like this, as I don't want to pay for something I then can't sell. Bookmarking this one.
