Guess what? The information marketing business is one of the best businesses to be in on the internet. Want to know why? Well, that’s what today’s lesson will be all about. I want to share with you why you should consider entering this business – if you’re looking for an online business to start.
But first, let me tell you what an “information product” is. It’s simply a product that delivers information. Common examples of this are: books, manuals, CD’s, eBooks, DVD’s, membership sites, offline newsletters, and etc. If you have any kind of instructional content that you want to share and sell from scratch, then you’ve essentially have and made an information product.
You can take this product and sell it in a multi-media format (manuals, CD’s, DVD’s all as one set)… or you can simply sell eBooks and have the money go straight into your PayPal or business account. The thing about eBooks is that they are immediately downloaded after purchase.
So you do no shipping, no product development and packing… and you get to have sales on autopilot all while you sleep. It’s a true reality for tons of people all around the world. You can do the same thing too.
Here’s one reason why you should start an information marketing business online:
1) You don’t need a lot to get started
I made my first sale online while I was in college. I fell out of my seat when I had got 2 sales in one day. I had no idea of what I was doing, but all I knew was that I had to fulfill the products. But the beautiful thing was that the product was already delivered! I was selling a simple eBook in a crazy niche back then.
In college, all I had was a laptop, Microsoft Word, and an idea. And I turned my ideas into sales that still come in till this day. I was relieved to know that I didn’t have to hire any dropshippers or suppliers for my product. So that just goes to show that you don’t need to have a lot of equipment to get started in this business. Here’s another reason you should start an information marketing business.
2) No employees
If you want, you can have the option of not having any employees. Now… I don’t consider this kind of person to be an “employee” for you – but it will be in your best interest to hire an accountant. This payoff when tax time comes around. Plus, you will want to get yourself a copy of a program called “Quickbooks” also.
Aside from these 2 things, you really don’t need a lot of employees… especially if you’re just trying to make this a small, $5,000 a month business that is easily manageable by 1 person. Plus… you don’t have to pay out checks on a regular basis… this is a hassle for many people online.
With these 2 reasons, I’m confident that you will give this business a chance and try to make money within it. Just make sure you have an amazing plan when it comes to marketing. Once you have this down packed, you will start to see some big strides in your business pursuits online.
Good luck with selling information products online today.
