Profitable Content Creation – How Mistakes Can Be Your Very Best Friend (Use Them)

Profitable content creation allows you to enjoy many benefits online. These benefits include greater online visibility, traffic generation, list building and product creation.

But did you know that the mistake that most people make in their niche can be a powerful source of content for you?

Here’s what I suggest you do:

Step 1 – Consider a specific topic in your niche. In this case the more specific you cna be the more powerful your content will be.

Step 2 – Identify the 3 biggest mistakes most commonly made around this specific topic in your niche.

Step 3 – Name the first mistake. That’s all, just name it. As in: Mistake #1 – Failure to create a list of the most important tasks for the day. Simple as that.

Step 4 – Now say a little bit more about that mistake. How do most people wind up making that mistake? What’s the most common result? etc.

Step 5 – In this next step you get to set your self apart from any one else covering this topic in your niche. That’s because you’re not just going to name the mistake. You are also going to offer what to do instead.

So offer a tip on what to do instead of the mistake. Just a line or two will do.

Step 6 – Now do the same thing for mistake two and mistake three. Name the mistake. Give a little more information about how the mistake happens. Then offer what to do instead. Again just a few lines giving a simple tip about what to do to avoid the mistake or what to do instead.

Now at this point you might be wondering something like this:

“What a minute now. If I give away 3 tips at one time aren’t I going to give away the farm?”

I get that. I used to worry about that too. Then I realized that you really can’t give away the farm in a 400 word article or blog post, or in a 3-4 minute video.

And if you could it would just mean that your farm was not big enough yet, and let’s work on that first.

In reality what you are doing it giving then good information so that you can enjoy being seen as the go to expert on this topic.

As you create your 3 mistakes content, I think you’ll enjoy how you’ll be seen as the expert of choice in your niche, and drive more traffic and build your list with your content.

Profitable Product Creation – 3 Lies the Gurus Tell You About Product Creation (What To Do Instead)

Profitable product creation is a great way to be consistently profitable in your online business. And you do want to be consistently profitable in your online business, right?

When I first came online full time in 2007, one of the first things that struck me was how hard “the experts” were making product creation. I listened to a preview call for a product creation course that said it would take at least a year to create a product.

Since I had just created one in just a few days, I thought this could be made much simpler. And one way to make product creation much simpler is to get rid of some of the lies that so-called experts tell you.

3 Big Guru Lies About Product Creation

Product Creation Lie #1 – Product creation takes a long time – As I mentioned above, I once heard some “experts” say that it takes at least a year to create a good product. What this lie does is scares a lot of people off or makes them dependent upon the guru.

The Truth About What to Do Instead – While there are some products that can take a year to create, those are the exception rather than the rule. And now I’ll prove it: create a 45 minute teleseminar or webinar. Present it – record it – sell it. I’ve got two and a half high priced degrees so I could make this a lot harder if I wanted to, but why?

Product Creation Lie #2 – There are already too many products in that niche – Designed to keep you from competing with some of the gurus. Think about this for a minute: are there too many kinds of bread, hamburgers or pizza out there? Somebody should have told “Papa John’s.”

The Truth About What to Do Instead – Research the most popular products and resources in your niche. Discover which ones are doing a good job and selling well. Now go and create something better – simply do a better job.

Product Creation Lie #3 – Create Something You Are Passionate About – I saved the worst and most dangerous lie for last. This whole thing about do what you love and the money will follow leads so many people astray.

I’ve worked with far too many people who were frustrated because the product or resource about which they were passionate about was not selling well. Many times this was because the only people passionate about the product was the misguided person who created it, and maybe their family.

The Truth About What to Do Instead – Do your due diligence research first. Don’t even start down the road of creating a product or resource until you have done these 2 things:

1) Find out exactly what your community needs help with and what they want.

2) Once you discover what your community wants, find out how they would most like it delivered. Do they want a live course, a home study course, do they want it delivered in text, audio or video, or some combination?

You’ve got to have the answers to these questions before you do any product creation.

Productive Product Creation – 7 Key Steps to Excell at Product Creation

The competition in the world of business is on as rise. The companies which keep on producing new more innovative products have better chances of surviving than competition and remaining successful. This reason has increased the value and importance of the research and development department of any organization.

When a company keeps on launching new products, their target market remains happy with them and if the products created are good in quality, these products add to the market value and brand equity of the company. Keeping this in view the product creation process becomes very important. Most of the companies have realized the importance of research and development of new products and as a result many companies launch new products regularly in the market now.

If you want to create new products successfully, a step by step approach is better. First of all you need to know your target market. If you want to create a product that sells, the best idea is to use the market trend as an indicator. The demand and supply cycles are to be studied in detail and the product should be prepared after conducting all this research. It should be market tested and test marketed before launching. These steps will make product creation easier for you. New product creation is important. There is a sense of innovation attached with creation of new products, which helps companies in improving their market share. In this state of high competition it is important that you understand the importance of creating new products.

Product Creation – Why is Product Creation so Scary?

Product creation. The term itself sounds scary. And I guess rightly so. I have seen $47 ebooks with less information than in my free ebooks or my $9.77 version. So for some, product creation is a nightmare.

But product creation does not need to be scary or a nightmare. With the right guidance, product creation should be a breeze. Now, I certainly will not be able to give you everything you need to know about product creation in the next 300 words. But I do believe I can take the fear out of product creation.

Start here. Decide what you want to create. What is your niche market? Who is your customer? What product do they need more than anything else? What information do they need that no one else has systematically organized?

Once you know what information is needed, you can determine the medium of distribution. Is it conducive to writing a book? Or would it be easier to talk about it (create a CD)? Or is it something that needs to be shown hands-on (DVD or video)?

Follow these steps to product creation:

1) Create an outline of everything you need to share to give the customer all the information they need.

2) Divide your main topics into subtopics–for example if you created 10 topics in 1) above, then create 5 ideas for each topic. Now you have 50 ideas. These topics will be your chapters and the ideas will be sub chapters. If you are creating video or CD, the topics will be individual files or video clips and the ideas will be each of the items you cover in the CD, video, or DVD.

3) Begin to write or record. If you are writing a book, simply choose to write for one hour a day. Just write one idea at a time and do not become too concerned with how well the ideas flow together. If you are doing a CD, video, or DVD, you will need to make good notes first (it is best not to write the entire script out or it will sound stiff when you read it) and then take one hour a day to record. The first few hours of your recording will probably sound pretty bad. That is OK. Simply listen to it (or watch it) and make the necessary adjustments the next day.

4) Once you have all the parts written or recorded, edit and/or proofread them.

5) Create a nice package for your products, create a web page and sales page, and begin selling your new product creation.
