Welcome to this short e-course.
Knowing just where to begin when you're new to the whole online selling game can be fraught with difficulties. With so many others already earning and touting the praises of their methods, where exactly do you begin?
Many who aspire for an online business give up before they've really begun, and that's partly because of the huge array of courses, eBooks, and other assorted sources available online! It's confusing. Who's right? Who's wrong? And who is in it just to make a quick buck from the inexperienced?
How do you tell the difference between a very useful product - one that can honestly help - and one that is just plain junk?
Let's discuss why people want, and try, to sell products online.
Almost Unlimited Opportunity
"Unlimited" opportunity ... well almost. There are limits to everything, but when we refer to the potential of earning an online income it is very large indeed. If you've ever operated your own offline business you would know about the limits of your "market" or client base. There is only so much you can do to market your goods or services. But, consider what the Internet offers.
Every single day, millions log on in search of something whether it be information, or a specific product.
Online shopping is a time-saver and is very convenient.
Understand that many people looking for information online are prepared to pay for it. Anything that you can think up can be turned into an information product.
Remember, there are millions of internet visitors all across the world searching for information.
The only "limits" involved with selling online are those you set for yourself.
With info-product creation, it can be re-packaged in a number of ways, thereby expanding the income potential. However, it's important to remember that technology is an ever expanding field, and therefore it will be necessary to "change with the times" and keep your info-product up to date.
Most offline businesses change with the times, so an online business need not be any different. Change is happening all the time.
Any "idea" can be cultivated into a good info-product. It may not be a great idea, but it needs to offer good value ... great value. It just will not work if free information is copied verbatim, or if a few words are changed, in the expectation of making a profit. It doesn't work that way.
Effort is the number 1 ingredient in creating a product of value. In this way, if you focus on value and believe in what you have created, then most likely others will too.
