Doing the Info-Twist: Variations on the Info-Product Theme
You've heard the buzz - Information Products - are the hottest most profitable item to sell on the Internet. All the big names in Internet Marketing, virtually without exception, will tell you that the really big profits come with selling your own original information products, especially "How To" guides.
As usual, the gurus are right - but what is not always considered - is whether every aspiring Internet millionaire really has a book in them - or even if they do - whether a "How To" guide is the best info-product that particular person could create.
Different people have different skills. You know it's true. There are six billion people on this planet, and they ain't all writers.
Even if you're determined to succeed, maybe you want to succeed your way, rather than attempting to follow a formula.
Take a long hard look at yourself. Think about where your strengths lie, and try to work to them. Everybody says write about what you know - but I'd go further - and say "Don't put writing at the core of your info-product if that's not your strongest talent."
None of this means you don't have to write at all - without documentation most products are worse than useless. But what it does mean, is that the amount of original written material you have to create, can be very substantially reduced as compared to writing a whole book.
If you really feel you can't even write the small amount of documentation required for these types of products - then team up with somebody else who can. You can work on what you're best at, the writer works on what he's good at, and at the end of you have a better (and hopefully more profitable) product than either of you could have produced alone.
It could well be that your product works best as a combination of an eBook and other elements. As the publisher of EBookCompiler.com, I'm probably not supposed to say this, but the bottom line is that an eBook Compiler is just a tool - admittedly a powerful one - but it isn't necessarily the only development tool you need to create a great product.
Whichever kind of "info-twist" product you develop, the last step is to make sure the whole package hangs together. Make sure the documentation really does describe all aspects of your product, and package everything together in a single automated installation procedure if your product consists of multiple components (you can get free software for building automated installations at http://www.jrsoftware.org/).
And one the last tip: always see your product through customers' eyes. Customers' interest will always be the benefits your product can deliver to them - not how you developed it - not what component took the most work to create - not all the technical details - but the real tangible benefits they can get today. The most successful combination products are nearly always the ones where the customers don't even know they're doing the info-twist.
