    Throughout the past year I've read as much as I can and watch as many video on  internet marketing.  I've come to the conclusion that other than affiliate marketing having your own product is above all the right way to go, and info products seem to be the easiest way, rather than producing a physical product.

    As anyone gone through the procedure and what do you think?

      I think that if you have info that is not easily found for free on the Web and have done the research to find out if other people are searching for that info then it would be a good idea to produce and market that info. 

      'Become a Professional Painter & Decorator'

      Might be of interest to some people but in my experience those that become professional painters are not much into reading how to  But 'How to paint and decorate like a pro' might be more appealing to those that are trying to save money.

      If you make a digital product, make sure it has plenty of photo examples.

    I once considered it but as the vast majority of my online property has been based around providing information for free I had moral issues with the idea. I write mainly health information in an easy to understand format. Charging people for what they could obtain for free if the spent a bit of time looking would involve a fair bit of the 'hard sell' and thats just not me.
    I am happy to sit back and let the odd bit of adsense revenue roll in.
    These days to get noticed on the net you need some over the top claim or gimmick to even get noticed. Even if you had a great form of information, you would need an exaggerated sales pitch to sell it.Too much competition probably kills off some good ideas.

      I can understand where your coming from writing about health issues, I was recently  asked to partner a info product about anxiety attacks; at fist I jumped in with to feet

      'An info product I've always want to try it out'

      but when I started reading into it, it sicken me to think I would even contemplate such a venture, I just couldn't do it.

      The info product I was thinking of is my trade and the product.

      'Become a Profesional Painter & Decorator'

      Who ever buys the product will make 10 times the value of what they paid for it, with there first job or probable save 5 times as much on there home decorating.

      So that's why I don't feel so bad a bout this one.

    I do this (under a different pen name). I certainly don't feel guilty about charging for specialized knowledge I have. Bookstores are full of people doing it. smile

    The easiest way I've found to write an ebook fast is to start with a good outline. I get all the headings, or chapter titles, and sub-headings in first. Then I fill in the information between them. Keeps me going.

    Best of luck to you!

      Hi MLoriMotley & livewithrichard

      Thanks for your input.
      I was thinking more of video than anything else, concentrating on close up  technique.

      Most of the stuff I've seen on the net is lacking in proper procedure and technique.

      As in Painting-Tips-and-Tricks-Paint-the-Ceiling-First.

        A video product with instruction would do much better than an e-book.  Check out and see if this is what you are looking for.

    When you start giving out information for a fee, people expect a good quality product from you, informational or otherwise.

    The successful online informational products on some sites tend to have some kind of software backing them, since nearly all information can already be found for free onn the internet.
