Info Product Creation: Process Steps

The process of creating an info product is very similar to the process of creating any other product but with some subtle differences. The main difference is that it’s almost certainly you that are going to be most affected by the success (or otherwise) of the product but that it’s very easy to become attached to a product idea and bury your head in the sand when everyone else tells you that it’s a dud. Follow these simple process steps to maximise the chance of creating a successful product.

1. Research

Your research doesn’t have to be extensive but it does have to take place.

Check whether there’s likely to be demand for the product you want to produce – read forums, look in places like Yahoo Answers, check Amazon, that kind of thing.

2. Is it a want or a need?

Wants are much stronger than needs.

Most of us don’t need an iPhone or the latest big screen television with cinema quality sound. But most of us want them!

Contrast that with 3-D televisions where the only people who want those seem to be the television producers – demand has been weak at best because most of us don’t want to have to sit in front of a television wearing weird glasses.

3. What’s it going to contain?

Before you start creating your new info product, you need to know what’s going to be included.

Make an outline for your proposed product.

An outline makes it easy to spot anything you’ve missed and include it before you get to the production stage for your info product. I find the best way to spot the kind of glaring omissions that often occur in products is to produce the outline and then set it aside – preferably overnight – before coming back to it with fresh eyes.

4. Start producing

Whether your info product is software, a PDF, videos or anything else, it needs to be produced!

Depending on the length of your product, you may produce it in a handful of sessions or it may take longer. But if you don’t start producing it, nothing is going to show for your initial planning work.

5. Edit your product

It pays to go back over your product and edit it.

Check for typos if it’s a PDF. Double check that your personal login details aren’t shown if it’s a video. Debug it if you’ve produced software of some sort. Whatever it takes to make sure that your product is ready to be launched.

6. Create a sales page and a download page

It’s unlikely that your sales page can just be “Buy my product”.

The chances are that you’ll need to persuade people to purchase and that’s the job of the sales page.

Let your voice come through on the page. And learn to tread the fine line between being a pushy salesman that everyone wants to avoid and not pushing hard enough.

A story often works well – people can identify with it and we drop our guard when stories are told.

7. Start promoting

You need to let the world know that your new product exists.

You could have the best product and the best sales letter but without promotion, your product will just be another page on the internet, buried amongst millions of other pages.

So make sure to set aside some time to promote your new product and give it the best possible chance of success.

Commercial Loans – Take All Aspects In Consideration

As the saying goes, taking a loan is easier than surviving with it. A shrewd businessman is one who borrow but with an eye to repay it as soon as possible. Sometimes, business requirements arise because you get a new business order hat is hard to manage within your own business funds. You obviously cannot afford to lose big business opportunity only because the funds are not there.

These and other similar situations force you to take help of external sources of financing. These sources may be temporary or permanent, depending on the nature of funding. Large body corporate often have huge financial needs, and therefore, they resort to public financing by inviting deposits or going for a ‘rights issue’ meant for the existing shareholders. On the other hand, a new business concern or sole proprietorship undertaking would obviously not be able to take benefit of that sort – neither are these meant for them.

Before applying for commercial loans, first of all decide the type of debt financing that your business firm will be comfortably able to get. If you do not own any property in the name of firm, secured commercial business loans are out of question. You will have to rely on loans that do not require any security. These loans will offer you a limited amount – upto £25,000. The interest rate is likely to be little more than what you can get by pledging some property. The amount of loan that you can qualify for can be increased by involving some property in the loan transaction.

Pre-Launch and Ground Floor Opportunities – Is it a Good Idea?

There are a lot of people that are getting into Pre-launch and Ground Floor opportunities. They are so excited because this is the next big thing. This is the business to beat all businesses; you know the one that will make you a millionaire.

The thing about these types of business opportunities is that they have no track record of success and most new network marketing companies fail within their first few years. Sometimes you may find a pre-launch or ground floor opportunity that seems to have everyone you know flocking to it and you want a piece of the new company so you can get in before everyone else get’s all of the money.

What you need to know is that the Network Marketing Industry has been around for years and there are over and about 4,800 still are around. There are a handful that has managed to reach the 1 billion dollar mark in sales. That is a very small percent of Network Marketing companies that have been successful; you can see that it is very rare that a pre-launch or ground floor opportunity has the possibility of surviving.

Even if there is a good product, service, compensation plan, it may not be enough to keep that company going. There has to be a proven track record of management and leadership to go along with everything else.

So before you join a new company and everyone is saying that it is the next best thing, you have to ask yourself that question “Is Pre-launch and ground floor opportunities a good idea?” Only you will be able to decide if that is something that you want to pursue.

Don’t be like so many other people who got in on the ground floor and then a few months or a year later found out that the company that they got in early on is going out of business and all that you worked for is gone.

Try to find a company with a proven track record that has stood the test of time, one with recognition, with dynamic leadership and management.
