Hi! Just wanted to make sure that you know that many of the links I use are affiliate links. This means that, after I have fallen in love with a product, I ask if I can help to promote it. This means that if you click on my link and end up purchasing, I get a commission and a very grateful heart. So, thank you.
Why Would I Want to Sell Info Products?
Ohhhhh, great question. I know it sure doens’t sound exciting, but learning to make and sell info products can open up a whole new world to you. If you are just getting started online and need to prove that you can actually make money, selling info porducts is a great place to start. If you have a little traction going already, creating info products can supercharge your results. You could use your info products as lead magnets to grow your list or use them to gain credibility in your niche. Whether you sell them or give them away, they will help your business to grow.
What Exactly is An Info Product?
An info product is any form of a digital product that solves a problem, answers a question, or teaches something. It can be a simple pdf, an ebook, a video or series of videos, or a course among many other options.
When someone does an online search they want an answer. If you are able to create a simple, to-the-point product that resolves their problem quickly, you have provided huge value.
Do People Still Pay for Info Products?
There is free information everywhere you look these days. Which is great if you have the time and patience to sort through all of it. But when you have a pressing issue, wouldn’t you much rather pay a few dollars to have a concise answer in one place and be done with it? I know I would and I do quite often.
Some things I can find quick answers to on YouTube, but even then it takes weeding through the low quality info first. And then piecing the info together. More and more often, I just don’t have the time.
Recently, I purchased some Canva training and there is certainly no lack of good Canva training available for free. But I wanted to have it organized, to the point, and available for easy reference.
Do I Need To Be an Expert to Sell Info Products?
You 100%, most definitely do not need to be any kind of an expert to make and sell info products. You will need to have the abilitly to do proper research though. You can certainly write about topics that you love and are already experienced in, but there are ways to quickly uncover the information you need on any topic.
I’ll be honest. I get really annoyed when I see these get rich quick courses telling you to pretend to be an expert in something you knew nothing about. That is not what I’m talking about here. You will actually use not being an expert to your advantage. How? By being relatable and easily understood.
Have you ever wanted to learn something new and the person teaching you is a mega-uber-super expert and you just feel defeated from the get-go? You feel like you are too far behind and will never catch up. Or, you can’t even understand what is being taught because the teacher is on such a higher level than you? There is a huge advantage to learning something from someone who has just learned the info themselves. Not only is it fresh in their mind, but they know where you are and how to get from there to the end goal.
How Can I Get Started Making and Selling Info Products?
Well….. you can search YouTube videos…. or get straight to it with a quality course. Years back, I had purchased a couple different courses because I was able to see the potential of this business model…. but I didn’t take action. The courses were ok, but were missing something.
It wasn’t until last year that I was introduced to Product eClass and was also given access to promote it as an affiliate. Funny thing, was, I had put it on the back burner until a dozen or more people in my group started commenting about going through the earlier versions of Product eClass (it was completely updated in 2020) and attributing it to being their big breakthrough online. (I highlighted a few of the comments in this review article.)
I decided to go through the entire course and oh boy did I like what I saw. This is much more than a do this, do that type of course. Just the first module alone (which is actually a bonus module) will change everything. I don’t say this lightly. Jason, the instructor, shares an amazing productivity tip to create products in just one sitting.
Take that one tip and apply it to the rest of your tasks, and your productivity will skyrocket. Trust me. If it works for a mom at home with two kids, it can work for anyone.
Time to Press the Button
So, I guess that was my long-winded way of saying that if you are serious about diving into making and selling info products, I highly recommend Product eClass. I go over more info about what each module covers in my review. If you want to get a feel for some of the steps and tips of product creation, you can see my Top 6 Tips here.
