5 Reasons Creating Information Products Should Be the Foundation of Your Internet Marketing Business

There are several major business models on the Internet. Some of them include: creating information products, Adsense, affiliate marketing, selling on Ebay, and even network marketing. All of these methods work just fine, but the most successful Internet entrepreneurs all have something in common – they focus on selling things that they produce themselves. This article will focus on 5 reasons why selling your own products is the best way to do business.

1. One reason you should have your own products is that your business doesn’t depend on how any one company treats you. This is the case with Adsense, e-bay, and affiliate marketing to an extent. By being so spending on others, you are giving up a lot of control to your income, which can be disastrous if something happens to the company who pays you or if you are no longer in their good graces. This problem doesn’t arise if you create your own products, because your efforts don’t depend on another company.

2. A second reason is that you control your reputation. With affiliate marketing, if you refer a customer to a bad product, or to someone with bad customer service, that reflects badly on you. Oftentimes affiliates don’t review the products they recommend, and that is understandable because of a lack of time, but the result is that oftentimes affiliates will be tricked into recommending shoddy products. With your own products, you can be sure it is quality because you are the one who made it. So you can put all of your energy and efforts behind it without reservation.

3. A third reason is that you make more money. Why get 50% of the sale of an item when you can get 100%. Sure, there is a bit more time you spend on the front end to make your product, but once you make it, the rest is easy street because it is pure profit.

4. The best free traffic in the world is for product owners. What traffic am I referring to? Affiliate traffic of course. When you see huge launches in the Internet marketing community we hear hard to believe accounts of people making anywhere from 1-10 million dollars or more in a day or less. The number are real, but the way it is done is through efforts of affiliates. Being an affiliate yourself is ok, but having them work for you is even better because while they spend their time and money driving traffic to your website, you just sit back and collect the profits produced from their efforts. Sure, you might not get 100% of the money, but the money you get is 100%, and you also get the lead which is often worth more than the sale itself.

5. The last reason I’ll cover for creating information products yourself is that there will be much fewer competitors in a market. Many affiliates scour markets to find products to promote but t hey don’t want to be bothered with actually creating them. But product owners who are willing to go the extra step and make a product will find that there are fewer product creators out there than affiliates, so you will have an easier time establishing yourself in the market.

Commercial Loans – Take All Aspects In Consideration

As the saying goes, taking a loan is easier than surviving with it. A shrewd businessman is one who borrow but with an eye to repay it as soon as possible. Sometimes, business requirements arise because you get a new business order hat is hard to manage within your own business funds. You obviously cannot afford to lose big business opportunity only because the funds are not there.

These and other similar situations force you to take help of external sources of financing. These sources may be temporary or permanent, depending on the nature of funding. Large body corporate often have huge financial needs, and therefore, they resort to public financing by inviting deposits or going for a ‘rights issue’ meant for the existing shareholders. On the other hand, a new business concern or sole proprietorship undertaking would obviously not be able to take benefit of that sort – neither are these meant for them.

Before applying for commercial loans, first of all decide the type of debt financing that your business firm will be comfortably able to get. If you do not own any property in the name of firm, secured commercial business loans are out of question. You will have to rely on loans that do not require any security. These loans will offer you a limited amount – upto £25,000. The interest rate is likely to be little more than what you can get by pledging some property. The amount of loan that you can qualify for can be increased by involving some property in the loan transaction.

Seven Ways to Come Up With Great Product Ideas

One of the biggest objections to product creation is finding a great idea for a product. Believe it or not, you are often your greatest source for profitable product ideas, and you’re about to discover how to generate more profitable business ideas than you will ever be able to use.

Below you’ll discover seven different ways to generate your own ideas, how to know if your ideas are likely to work, and how to test your idea to see if it really is going to make you money.

First, let’s talk about a (not so) surprising revelation – you already have ideas. In the last month you’ve probably had product ideas for ebooks, videos series, memberships sites, etc. The fact is, finding ideas isn’t the hard part of product creation. Sometimes all you need to do is pay attention to what’s happening online and all around you, and then write down those ideas when you get them.

So what is the hard part of product creation? No, it’s not creating the product. It’s the step just after having an idea and just before creating the product, and it’s called: Choosing one idea and sticking to it, despite all the other distractions.

This is of course followed up by continuing to stick with the idea all the way through until completion. I’ll bet you that you already know from your first hand experience that perseverance until completion is truly the difficult part of the product creation process. Compared to that, getting an idea can be a piece of cake.

Here’s a thought that will take some of the stress out of choosing an idea and then seeing it all the way through to completion: Even a less than stellar idea – seen through to the end – will become an asset and a character builder. Let’s say you choose your idea and you run with it. You stick to it all the way from inception to final product creation and product launch. But it doesn’t perform the way you hoped and you don’t get the sales you anticipated.

You still have an asset you can use for multiple purposes. You can repackage your product with a new cover and new sales letter, and see if it sells better that way. You can use the product as a give away to list build. You can enter your product in giveaways and joint ventures to also build you list. You can use it as a bonus when you sell other products you’ve created or affiliate products. You can sell resell rights, master resell rights, or private label rights to it. You can publish it on Kindle, and so forth.

Incidentally, there are numerous cases where a book did not sell well and the publisher simply changed the title and cover, and it now sold like hotcakes. So it might not be your product at all – it could simply be your product’s name or the marketing you’re using to sell your product.

And your product is a character builder for you regardless of how well it sells because you’ve now proven to yourself that you can choose an idea and stick with it to completion. This skill alone can make you a very wealthy person.

Don’t believe me? Imagine two people: One person skips from idea to idea and rarely ever sees them through to completion. The other person completes one idea after another. Unfortunately, the second person creates four products that don’t sell very well for every product that sells like gangbusters. After a few years, the first person has two or three products completed, while the second person has close to 100 products created, 20% of which sold like crazy. Who would you say was more successful?

So how do you generate killer ideas? Here are those seven ways we promised:

Solve Problems. If people need money, you show them how to get it. If people need to lose weight, you show them how to be thinner. If people have back pain, you show them how to get rid of it, etc.
Answer Questions. Again, you’re showing them how to do something. For example, if people are asking how to build a website, run an affiliate program or use a shopping cart, answering their questions can be the basis for a product topic. Sometimes the question might be answered with software. For example, if people want to know how to drive traffic and you’ve created a plug-in that drives traffic, you have an answer to their question (#2) that solves their problem (#1.)
Make a Process Easier. For example, every marketer needs sales letters. If you can develop a software, service or system that makes it easier to get sales letters, you might have a product winner.
Improve something. If you’ve got a method for growing organic vegetables that makes the vegetables bigger, tastier or more plentiful, you’ve got a product.
Do something faster. Maybe you know how make tomatoes grow twice as fast, or you know how to build a good list faster than anyone, or you have software that cuts the time it takes to perform a task – those are all viable product ideas.
Make something cheaper. Can you teach the contents of a $997 course for $27? Or can you show people how to do something cheaper? Maybe you can demonstrate how to grow herbs for a fraction of the store cost – this could make a great product.
Find the Hidden Desire or Need. For example, there are tons of products on how to do each aspect of online marketing yourself. But there might very well be a hidden market of upscale buyers who would rather pay someone to develop an online business for them.
