Putting It All Together!
The reason I have created this report is to help other people get started with product creation as this can seem like a daunting task, but believe me when I say it is also the most profitable step you can take!
There is a lot of information on the web about how to create your own products but not many of these sources provide a clear and concise step by step guide so you can get your product out there and making money in the quickest time possible!
So that is what I am going to attempt to do here. :)
I am confident if you follow the steps within this report you will have your very own killer product that will bring in sales for years to come.
Right let's get started!
To Your Success
Step 1: The Right Mindset Means A Lot!
Welcome to Step 1 the reason I thought I would include this step which really has nothing to do with product creation, is because you will need the right mindset to get the most out of this report.
The hardest thing I found and probably many other people do when getting started with any aspect of Internet Marketing is the hard work it involves.
I am not sure how you got interested in Internet Marketing but if you were like me you have probably been pulled in at some point, by all the websites out there that promise untold riches for 5 minutes work!
Don't get me wrong this is indeed possible, but in my experience not when you are getting started. It is indeed a reality if you have a list of 3,000 responsive buyers that you can send out an email that will make you thousands of dollars within a few days.
Although to start off you need to create that product and build that list and unfortunately that will require some good old fashioned elbow grease!
So you will need the correct mindset and I am not going to write pages and pages of motivation for you, except to answer the number one question that stops people taking action or makes them give up in my experience.
I know this question comes up and can be very hard to overcome because I have asked myself the same question plenty of times when I was getting started with Internet Marketing.
Here is the question or questions I found myself asking when I was getting started:
“Is this going to work?”
“Is all this work worth it?”
“Will my product sell?”
These are the three main questions that I found myself asking when I was creating my own product.
Well take it from me the answer to all those questions is “Yes it really does work!”.
If you follow the steps within this guide you will see that Internet Marketing does not have some SECRET formula to riches!
All you have to do is see things through to the end, have the ability to follow a series of steps and probably most important take action!
This report will do you no good whatsoever if it is just gathering dust on your hard drive, and please I implore you not to wait for the next best thing that promises riches!
Take action today and you will see results and I am here to help if you need it.
Whether it takes you 2 days or 2 weeks to follow these steps see them through to the end and I Guarantee you will make money online!
All you have to do is take a leap of faith with these steps once, to create your own product and once that is pulling in money you can do the same thing over and over to build a virtual empire.
YOU CAN DO IT AND YOU WILL SUCCEED!
So let's get started!
Step 2: Finding That Hungry Niche!
This is one of the most talked about subjects in IM and can be like the search for the Holy Grail! :)
The good news is it really does not have to be that difficult and you can find hungry niches with ease it just requires you to think a bit outside the box.
This step is the exact method I use to find hungry niches and is quite easy to do!
The first thing you need to do especially with your first product is find a niche that interests you.
This is not always the case and there will be plenty of profitable niches that you do not really interest you at all, but with your first product it is a good idea to find a niche that you have some sort of interest in.
If you are having difficulty thinking of a good niche that you have interest in, the best thing to do is think about your hobbies.
The first niche I can think of for you is “How to make money online” as you are reading this guide.
Just think of things that you enjoy doing like cooking, playing computer games, fishing, DIY, Ebay, collecting stamps etc...
The other thing I should mention here is try not to spend too much time thinking about this as it can prevent you from taking action!
Once you have thought of a niche that you have some interest in settle on that niche and get started.
Obviously I will not know what niche you have picked so for the purposes of this report I will go through the niche research steps with the “Dog Training” niche!
Ok, so once you have got your niche the first thing you need to do is see if it is profitable and people are looking for it!
Remember don't spend too much time on this just think of something you have an interest in and move on to the next step.
The next thing you need to do is go to Overture and check out how many people are searching for your niche.
The site I use is Pixelfast.com as it lets you see the amount of Google results and the amount people are paying for bids on Overture.
Here you will see what the tool bought up for the keyword “Dog Training”:
For the sake of this guide you should be concerned with just the top 20 results.
As you will see this is a VERY popular niche with lots of people typing in some very profitable phrases. Don't worry if your niche does not bring up this many results, as dog training is a heavily saturated market.
Do bear in mind though that your niches search results should have more than 500 searches per month at the very least.
This works out at about 16 unique searches per day on overture. Overture is a search engine that is not as big as Google so you can times the results by 4 to get a more accurate view of how many people are searching for a certain phrase.
So as you can see the main phrases that would interest here are:
dog behavior training
dog potty training
dog training book
dog training tips
dog obedience training
So you should now do the same and pick the top 5 phrases that are being most searched for in your niche.
If you followed the above steps and your niche has less than 500 searches per month then you will need to find another I'm afraid as it may not be worth putting the work in if there are so few looking for it!
So if you have a very small niche, try and think of another niche with more search results.
If you have found a niche with a decent amount of search results move onto Step 3 where we will find out if your niche will make you money!
Step 3: How To Be Sure That Your Product Will Make Money !
Ok, so you have your niche and have picked out the top 5 phrases that people are searching for in that market.
The next thing we need to find out is if the niche will make you any money!
Bear in mind that there is no guarantees that you will make money with your product, however if you follow this step it should make 99% sure that there is a market for the taking!
What you should do now as well is make a folder on your Desktop to keep all your work together.
Just call it your “niches name” product for example “Dog Training Product”.
To find out if you will make money from your product we need to ascertain that all the people are searching for your 5 phrases are buying as well!
There are many different ways to do this but this is the way I do it:
First of all go to http://www.google.com and type in your top phrase (the one with the most searches) for instance I would type in “Dog Training”.
Once you have typed in your main phrase the first thing you should look at is the number of search results the query has.
You will see from the search results there are 38,800,000 results for the phrase “dog training”.
This is a lot of results and that normally means there is a market there.
The next thing you should do is look at the number of adwords the phrase has.
These are adverts people place on Google for certain phrases what we are interested in is how many competing ads there are and what sort of price they are paying to be there.
Basically the more profitable a market the more people will bid to place their ads.
So all you need to do now is type each one of the five phrases you picked earlier and make a note of:
1. The number of search results
2. How many people are paying to be their on Google Adwords
The next thing we need to do as mentioned above is get a rough idea of how much people are willing to pay to be there on Google Adwords as this is a good indicator of how much money is in a niche!
Also make a note of what the Adwords are selling as this is a good indicator of WHAT people are buying in the niche and this can help you with your product creation.
For instance what is the top Adword Ad?
For the dog training niche it is:
Dog Training Problems
The Professional Solution
Remote Collars & Electrical Fences
Bear in mind this is not necessarily the best product to copy although it will give you an idea of what people are selling in the niche.
However the above is just something to bear in mind, when you have checked out the search results for each one of your phrases and the competing ads we need to know how much people are paying and for this we will use a site called:
Spyfu is a site that lets you see what sort of money people are spending on Google Adwords for their phrases.
All you need to do is type in your main phrase into the Spyfu search bar and it will display the information we want.
You will need to do this with each of your phrases but I will go through the process with my example phrase “Dog Training”.
Let me explain what this data means and how it is relevant:
Cost/Click: This tells us the average cost to the advertiser per click, so you can see that the average advertiser is spending $0.80 per each click. The higher amount is the better as if they are spending a lot of money per click they must be getting sales! (normally anyway!)
Click/Day: This shows us the average amount of clicks per day an advertiser is getting on that phrase. If this is high it is better also as it means people are searching for information on that phrase.
Advertisers: This shows the number of advertisers bidding on this phrase. Ideally this number should be lower than 20 as it means that there is more than 20 different competing Google Adwords and if you can find a good niche with low competition then this is better. Don't worry too much about this though as if it is high you can get people to promote your product!
Cost/Day: This shows the total daily cost to all advertisers that bought this keyword/phrase this just shows you how much an advertiser is prepared to pay to stay at the top. Normally the more the better, as if the advertiser is willing to pay more than they must think the keyword is profitable!
So all you need to do is go through each of your 5 keywords and see the results using this tool.
Ideally you will be looking for all the figures to be high and the competition low (lower than 10 competing ads can be a goldmine!).
However as long as people are spending money and there is a market there you will make money 99% of the time!
Also you should now start thinking about narrowing down your niche for product creation using this tool.
For example I have been focusing on the keyword “Dog Training” however it is a good idea to focus on an actual topic within a subject like “Dog Potty Training” in my example.
This is not always the case but does mean you can focus in on one point and will be easier when creating your product and more targeted.
Check the results for “Dog Potty Training”:
As you will see this phrase is a lot more focused and is still very competitive.
However although it is saying we would only receive 0.79 clicks per day if you created a product on how to potty train your dog you would get more sales than if you created the same guide and bid on just the phrase “dog training”.
Does that make sense?
You should find a niche this way that tells people how to solve a problem or offer some solution.
So for this example I will settle on the topic “Dog Potty Training”.
If you are having any problems with this part then just send me a quick email and I will help.
Also don't get too caught up on this just take each of your 5 phrases type them into Spyfu and note the results and see how much people are spending to be there.
Then select a phrase that solves a problem or that is more focused!
So I have settled on the phrase “Dog Potty Training”.
The next step will show you how to get started creating your product.
Step 4: How To Create Your Killer Product With Least Amount Of Fuss!
Ok, so by now you should have a market that is profitable and all you need to do is create a product.
There are lot's of different products that you can create but for the purposes of this report we will create an Ebook and I will show you how to write a brilliant one even if you do not have a clue about the topic!
The reason that you should create an Ebook as your first project is it is without a doubt in my opinion the easiest product to get started with!
If your niche really takes off you can always come back and create an “add-on” product like educational videos, or an online course as an upsell but to start off with focus on an Ebook.
So let's get started:
First thing we need for our eBook is Chapters how do you know what chapters to put in your ebook?
Well you need to know what people want answers too within your niche so for this we head over to Yahoo Answers.
Yahoo Answers is an excellent resource to see what people are wanting answers to within a market.
It is an awesome tool to find out what the chapters or sections of your eBook should be.
So all you do is type in the market phrase you have decided on into the search bar for instance mine is “Dog Potty Training”
There are 1,266 results for the phrase “Dog Potty Training”.
What you need to do know is search through the results and see what the main questions or subjects that are bought up are.
For instance for my example one of the topics that comes up a lot within “Dog Potty Training” is the question “Should I smack my dog when potty training?”
The answer to this question by almost everyone is a big resounding NO!
So taking the example I would think about entitling on my chapters “The 4 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Smack Your Dog While Potty Training!”.
The amount of chapters you pick for your ebook is Dependant on how many different questions are being asked but you should aim for about 5 or 6 chapters with good content.
More on how to get the content next, for now find 5 or 6 questions that are being asked and make a note of them as these will be the chapters of your ebook.
The top 5 issues I found for “Dog Potty Training” was:
· Should I Smack My Dog When Potty Training?
· Is It Right To Shout At My Dog When Potty Training?
· Should You Use A Crate When Dog Potty Training?
· What's The Best Routines To Potty Train My Dog?
· What Is The Best Way To Potty Train An Older Dog?
There was actually a lot more for “Dog Potty Training” but for your first product just focus on 5 or 6 main questions and save the questions in a notepad file and put them in the folder you made earlier.
These will be the main subjects or chapters for your eBook and all you need to do know is make a good title for each chapter and obviously add content to each chapter.
For the start of your book always start with an introduction where you can tell them who you are and what you are going to tell them.
This does not have to be too long however a nice little story will go down well.:)
For the title of your Chapters I find that catchy titles following the top reasons routine works well.
So for instance you could entitle the first chapter
“The Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Smack Your Dog While Potty Training And The REAL Secrets You Must Know To Do Successful Potty Training!”
As with every other step do not get too caught up on the titles of the chapters as you start to put content in your Ebook you can always go back and change them.
I find these three guidelines help:
· Try to think of a catchy title that grabs their attention
· Use words like “Secrets” or “Never Revealed Before” To Spark Interested
· Also use the top 10 reasons methods or 10 thins NOT to do when training your dog, as it is easier when you go to write your book!
So to recap you should know have 5 or 6 questions that your product is going to answer and have thought of how to put them into catch Chapter names.
As I say this does not have to be a masterpiece just think of 5 or 6 Chapter headers that you are going to tell them to answer the questions, as it will give you a focus for your content that you are going to do next.
Once you have your chapter titles you are ready to start writing your guide and the next step will show you how with ease.
All being well, you are now ready to begin writing your first product.
Don't worry it isn't as hard as it sounds!
On to the next section when you are ready!
Step 5: The Secrets to Writing the Content for Your Ebook with Ease!
Ok, you are know ready to begin writing the content for your Ebook. A lot of people find this very daunting but it does not have to be!
This step will explain how I find good solid content for my Ebooks and how you can get them written within have have a killer product within one day!
Want to know the secret to creating your own product super fast?
ALL THE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE FOR YOU!
You do not need to spend hours of painstaking research to write your next best seller as all the research has been done for you!
All you need to do to find good quality content for your Ebook is know where to find it!
The first place you should go is Ezine Articles
Ezine Articles has thousands of articles that you can use for the content of your product.
Bear in mind you should not copy people's articles but you can by all means take the main points from an article and re write it in your own words.
The only hard part is a lot of writing but stay on track and you should be fine!
You will see a box on the side of the page about halfway down that has a search feature.
Click on the “Advanced Search” feature.
All you have to do then is type in your search term in the box and it will return all the articles in the database.
Try to use the exact phrase of your main keyword.
I could write thousands of chapters if I wanted too, but you only need 5 or 6! :)
In this search you will see articles entitled “Potty Training Techniques That Don't Work” and so on.
You should search through and find 3-4 articles for each chapter and copy them each into a separate notepad file.
As I say you should not copy someone’s articles word for word but can use ideas from them.
So in the folder you created earlier create a separate sub folder for each of your chapters and copy and paste 4-5 articles for each chapter that you can use content from!
All you need to do is start writing your ebook using the articles that you have found.
If you did not find much on Ezine articles here are some more top article sites:
You can also find more specialist info by performing a forum search in Google for your niche.
This will bring up all the forums to do with your niche so if you are looking for some more in depth info you can find it there here is what you do to do a forum search:
· Go to http://www.google.com
· Type in your phrase/chapter and forums in the search box.
You can also use forums if you need a specific answer to a problem that you cannot find anywhere else.
All you need to do is sign up as a member of the forum and ask your question and you will get answers!
P.S It is a good idea to say Hello and introduce yourself first and add a bit of content.
It does not need to be anything special just tell them about your “dogs” or what ever subject it is.
Using the above methods you should have more than enough info to write your book and in the bonus section next I will give you a few pointers on how to put the info together!
Bonus Section: Putting It All Together
Right you are just about there Congratulations!
See it wasn't so hard was it?
I thought I would create this bonus section to give you a few pointers when you are putting together your product.
So you have allocated a folder for each of your chapters and put a copy of the articles you are going to use in each folder.
4-5 articles for each chapter.
All you need to do is put it all together and to do this the best advice I could give you is just start writing.
The product does not have to be a Charles Dickens masterpiece just write how you speak, as long as you are putting in good, solid content people will appreciate that more than any fancy words or “filler” content.
All you need to do is take 4-5 articles for each chapter that fit the title of the chapter for this example my first chapter would be something like:
Chapter 1: The Do's And Don'ts Of Dog Potty Training
all you need to do then is take the MAIN points of your 4-5 articles and start writing.
So for this one you would find 4-5 articles on “Dog Potty Training Tips” and take the main tips and put it in your own words.
Of course you do need to write the eBook so like mentioned below you could start off with
“In this chapter I thought I would cover the main Do's and Don'ts of Dog Potty Training so you can get a rough idea of what you should (and shouldn't!) be doing!
These tips are from my own personal experience and can really help you get started on the right track.
Here are the things you should make sure you are doing for effective dog potty training and an explanation of each method , and how it helps:
Tip 1/ Explanation
Tip 2/ Explanation
Summary of chapter”
So as you can see from the example above, all you need to do is arrange the information and make sure it is in your own words as well!
A good way to construct each chapter is:
· Start off telling them what you want to tell them.
· Then tell them and put your main content,tips and advice.
· At the end of the chapter tell them what you have just told them (summarize) and tell them what you are going to tell them in the next chapter.
The best thing to do is just get started and write down your first thoughts and then go back over your work and improve afterwards.
So there you have it!
If you have followed the steps above you will be well on your way to having your very own profitable product!
Well Done and Here's To Your Success,
