I am going to create an information product from scratch and I decided to post here the steps that I take to create this product. This way some will be able to learn how easy it really is to create your own product. This particular product will not be sold but be given away, you will still follow the same steps pretty much for a sold product.
To start with I am going to take an idea and then write about that idea. I am not going to release the name or idea I have chosen just yet though. This may take a few days for me to write up as obviously I have many other things to do while I create this product.
Your first step would be actually doing research to see if you are going to create a product that people want. You can do this research by checking the latest trends, latest news stories, popular forum threads, and etc. Just visit your favorite news site or forum for your niche to see what is being talked about.
There are several websites that have the latest trends posted that you can check. Google has their own trends which you can check by going to Google Trends. Once you have done your research then you can begin to start to create your product. Since I already know my market I do not need to do any research because I know article marketing is already popular and talked about.
My product will be based around article marketing but will not have anything to do with how you hear article marketing should be done (create article --> spin with junk software --> submit to 1,000's of content farms --> wait for all the sales to roll in). Instead this product will focus on real article marketing and how to best get the results you desire.
So after research the next step is to write up the information product. To do this I will use simple text (note pad for windows users). After it is written and checked and tweaked and edited, then I will follow up to the next step which will be in my next post on this thread when I get to the next step.
