That's right, you do. You just don't know it yet.
Everyone has their product. Everyone has something they can sell online. Something they could use to build their lists. Something, regardless of their preferred niche, they could employ to build the foundations of their future incomes. It's something called knowledge.
'How to’ knowledge sells, and whether or not you know it, yours could too. It could be the knowledge of how to do any number of things. It could be a hobby, or a spin-off on something you know from a profession. It could be something small you may not think someone else would want to know. It might be a method of doing something better, faster, or more easily. But no matter what it is, there's a good chance someone on the Internet is looking for it.
Want to know for certain?
- Type it into a search engine, and you might be surprised by the results you get.
- Find a free keyword tool and see how many searches have been performed on the topic of what you know. When you search, remember that people might be looking for it with misspelled words and phrases. A search for “how to make a e-book" made a sale for me, so don't disregard either one.
- On the off chance you don't see enough interest in it online, choose something else you know and try again.
Once you've found something people want, all you have to do is turn your knowledge into something marketable and put it to use. That something would be an ebook.
They aren't expensive or difficult to make, and it doesn't have to be an encyclopedia. You could just write a 20 page report about whatever it is you know. The ability to do that is within everyone's reach nowadays, because programs to make PDF ebooks are everywhere. With a little work and some time, you could find yourself in possession of a nifty little PDF file people will pay money to get.
I've done it repeatedly. I converted an old site about painting wargaming miniatures, and my knowledge of internet marketing basics into their own e-reports. I even sell one, and it could be the same for you. Making ebooks and e-reports is within anyone's reach, and you could be making them too.
You just need to know what to do, and you could get started on your own information products right now. You already have your product, after all. You could take your worthwhile knowledge and start building an online income with it.
So, will you?
