Consider the pricing of your informational product as well as the best approach to offer the information to your clients when deciding what type of informational product to create.
The E-Book can be utilized for a wide range of topics, perhaps even the majority. It is the cheapest to manufacture.
The audio product is better suited to themes such as motivation, marketing, finance, and business, while the video product is best suited to action-oriented subjects such as sports, dance, and learning to play a musical instrument.
To put it another way, the goal of every informational product is to assist those who acquire it in some way that is essential to them, but the creator’s ultimate goal is to sell it to a big pool of hungry prospects who are eager to buy information on a specific issue.
Creating any type of informative product is an exciting proposition, and the journey from having a solid idea to seeing a final result is full of ups and downs, successes and failures, good days and bad days.
During the creation process, it’s simple to lose sight of the fundamental goal. The primary goal of any informative product producer, regardless of subject, is to sell the product once it is ready.
Customers that are eagerly awaiting your instructional goods are what you need.
Before you even start building your informational product, you should start contacting owners of lists that would be most interested in it and pitching joint ventures or even partnerships for your product.
Remember this: While building your educational product and making it the best it can be is important…even critical, selling the product is what will generate the money you require and compensate you for all of the time and effort you will have put into it in the first place.
The Art of Creating On-Demand Information
There is a lot of misconceptions out there regarding how to choose an educational product’s topic and how to create an information on-demand product with a wide pool of clients who are eager, ready, willing, and able to acquire it.
Many long essays and dissertations on the Internet claim that the best approach to identify a topic for an informational product is to type a few phrases into a search engine and see how many results you receive. The opposite could not be further from the truth. Go to Google and type in the word “crab.”
You might also use the Overture SearchTool and key in the word “crab.” You’ll receive a lot of hits, but it doesn’t guarantee that anyone wants to buy a crab-related informational product.
All that implies is that there is a lot of information about crabs on the Internet. If you trusted this search and acted on the fact that you received a lot of results, you’ll put in a lot of effort into generating an informational product for which there is no market and no buyers.
You will have put in countless hours of research for which you will never see a return. You’ll be an expert on crabs, but it won’t buy you milk for the baby.
There are, nevertheless, efficient approaches to find themes for which to generate information on-demand items. They aren’t as simple or quick as utilizing the Overture Search Tool’s search engine, but they are far more effective.
Visiting internet forums is one such method. It is not necessary to join or participate in the forums. Most forums are open to the public, so you may read the entries and learn about the popular topics of discussion.
You may have discovered the subject of your next information on-demand offering when you notice a repeating theme.
Of course, joining the forum and participating in the discussion are beneficial. You’ll be able to ask questions and obtain information this way.
Visiting blogs can also help you come up with a topic for your next information on-demand product. You can get a good idea of what’s on people’s thoughts by reading their blogs.
It’s easy to recognize a squabble…and squabbles are profitable. You might even find ideas for two instructional products…one expounding the strong merits of each side of a hot topic issue, and the other expounding the weak points of each side of a hot topic issue.
Subscribing to E-zines
Subscribing to E-zines is another way to find themes for on-demand informational items. Take note of the types of informational products promoted by the publishers of these E-zines.
You’ll receive emails from the E-publishers, zine’s and you’ll be able to see what things they’re pushing. You can bet that if numerous publications are pushing the same product, it’s hot.
Topics can also be found in hard copy newspapers and periodicals. People who live and die by the Internet still subscribe to and read them, which is hard to believe.
These periodicals’ letters to the editor section, as well as the business and entertainment sections, are worth noting.
Take note of the topic matter that is being broadcast on network television. Pay attention to the newsmagazine shows in particular. Networks have enormous budgets, and they pay professionals a lot of money to figure out what topics will pique the public’s attention.
You must be aware of what people are discussing and what their most pressing problems are. These are the factors that will determine which on-demand informational items will have a ready-made market.
Factors Affecting Product Creation Success
The construction of an effective informative product is dependent on a number of elements. Creating a topic out of thin air will nearly always result in failure rather than success.
The first step is to determine whether there is a market for the informative product you intend to offer. There’s no use in putting in the time and effort to develop a demand if there isn’t one.
Visit forums and blogs related to the product you’re preparing to see if there is, in fact, a market for it. Check E-zines, as well as print newspapers and publications, to see if people are interested in or require the product.
When looking through online forums and blogs, E-zines, and hard copy periodicals and newspapers, you don’t want to see a mention of a demand for the informational product you’re thinking about making only once in a while.
The content of the product must appeal to a broad audience, if not a specific market or niche.
The following step is to establish whether or not consumers are willing to pay for the information contained in the informational product you’re proposing.
If the only information you have is easily available, you may not find many takers; while some people will, the majority will not.
In order for people to be willing to pay you for the information you want to publish, it must be timely and relevant…it must be cutting-edge information.
Finally, the information you’re considering using to create an informational product must help people feel better, look better, make more money, have more fun, or solve a problem they’re having. You should search for a different topic if it doesn’t do any of the above.
