Starting An Internet Cash-Creating Business

This is your first lesson, and is the most basic thing you need to know and take action on. Let’s get started!
Before we begin, here’s the summary so you will be clear throughout everything:
• Find a product, target a specific audience.
• Once you have chosen your niche, time to find information! We’ll reveal where to get any of the information you want, very well written ones!
• Compile your information, finish your product, and then, time to get some business started. You will create your money making machine, your sales page.
• Have a domain name galore, get your website up and host it, very easy part.
• Alright, the exciting moments, accepting money!
Yes, that’s all! We will slightly tell you the story in details but don’t worry, you will surely understand everything. Here we go.

“You Can Be A Millionaire In The Next Few Minutes Doing This On The Internet!”

Ever seen them or heard of them? Of course, they are all over the Internet. In fact, a large number of us are numbed seeing the same things over and over again. Interesting part, no matter how many times people are thrown with them, they’ll still pull the money out of the pocket to give it a try.

Who knows, it might work right?

Well, it is human nature, we will search for things that can fulfill what we want every day. But hey, we’ll not put a single penny on any other business opportunities anymore, we are going to have our own delightful Internet business. Making money on the Internet is really not hard at all. People say once you get everything on “auto-pilot”, life’s a breeze. That’s very correct, now it’s your turn.

See everyday, there are people going for shopping in exclusive shops like Giordano, Hugo Boss, ZARA, Georgio Armani, Gucci and many more because they want to find beautiful clothing that satisfies themselves.

We all want to eat good food, have nice dinners in hotels, breakfasts in Dome, enjoy rich flavored brewed coffee in San Francisco Coffee Shop or Starbucks, drive nice cars, enjoy life by the beach and going for vacations around the world. We really want a lot of things!
• “I have added a lot of weight lately… must find a way to solve this problem.”
• “How can I learn to play like a professional golf player?”
• “It’s the same thing showing on TV everyday, don’t they have something special?”
Everyone is searching to solve, learn, or specialize their “wants”, and now the Internet is where people turn to when they need to seek for information.

For us, whenever we need to know about something we’ll make a search on search engines like Google, Yahoo or MSN. Why waste the time going all the way to libraries when we can search almost everything on the Internet in just a few seconds, yeah a few seconds in everything!

Here’s What Everything Is All About.

Having an Internet Business means we need to provide people with what they want. That’s it, nothing harder! Of course, you will need to sell something, a product, service, it can be almost anything, even garbage sells. Really, you can visit http://www.nycgarbage.com to see garbage being sold for 50 dollars, and someone is going to buy them for sure!

You just need to pick any niche you want, and create a product out of it. Wonder what a niche is? Consider it a topic. Again, it can be almost anything, as long as you think somebody will be interested in it, go ahead with your idea.

Nevertheless, some ideas can be slightly bad, especially the ones which are very crowded. The competition will be really high and it is harder for you to make a fortune out of your product.

It is definitely your choice. If anyone tells you that you couldn’t succeed, don’t bother. You are extremely capable of out-doing your competitors, it depends all on your will.

“Wow, this is still blind, I don’t even know any products or things I can create to be sold.”

It’s easy and you definitely know how! The difference will only be its popularity and its target audience, or in longer words, people who will buy your product. Undoubtedly, Informational Products are the best, and an informational product is what you want to sell.

Brainstorm your best niche, your best topic, or the one you feel like doing most. Do what you love and the money will follow. If you haven’t got specific ideas about what you might like to create, take a look at the following questions and suggestions:
• Do you feel especially passionate about any subjects in particular?
• Are you an expert in anything?
• Do you have hobbies or interests that you pursue regularly?
• Are you active in a sport?
• Ask your friends and family what they think you might be especially good at doing.
What have you learned from your jobs, hobbies and general life experience? What problems have you solved in the past? Brainstorm as many ideas as you can. Look at the following list. Are you knowledgeable in one or more of the following subjects?

• Accounting
• Arts and Crafts
• Auto Buying

A lot of them. There is so much you can sell on the Internet, pick one that you are more inclined to and simply start writing it. It is very important that you just take action and do it. Everything starts from there!

It doesn’t matter if it’s not fully complete, you just need to roughly “sketch” the contents, and only perfect it some time later. In a few minutes, hours, doesn’t matter at all.

Want to know whether your product is highly sought after? Here’s how you do it. You can even get ideas for creating your product from them.

There are several ways, easiest one which is by using Overture’s Free Suggestion Tool. You can also download this free software - Good Keywords, it kind of represents Overture’s Free Suggestion Tool, with less searches but more quality ones.

Other than that, you can also choose to use WordTracker – this is the free trial version, the paid one is definitely the best. The main thing about WordTracker is with a decent fee you can get to see a lot of more specific searches and information.

WordTracker works especially good for this – it shows you the number of competition, and also lets you know if you are targeting a good niche by KEI, or Keyword Effectiveness Indicator.

Keywords actually play the same role as your niche or topic. If you found a good niche, for example: learn how to play drums by ear, then your keywords would be much better, and it will be much easier to get a top ranking for search engine optimization. Now the main thing here is, we want to get less competitive keyword searches, as the big ones are being taken away by large companies most probably, it will waste a lot of time trying to compete with them. If you get a keyword with a KEI of over 200, excellent.

It’s not necessary to use these tools if you already have a niche in mind. If you have a crowded niche, then it’ll depend on yourself to out-do your competitors.

Other than these search tools, you can also have surveys in places like eBay or Amazon.

Contents
“If I have an idea, how many pages do I need, what is the price for it, and where can I find additional contents?”

It can range from 40-100 pages for a standard e-book. As for price, it’s totally your choice. Usually prices range from $20-$100. As for contents, you can find everything you want from these directories, tons of them:

• http://www.ezinearticle.com
• http://www.articlecity.com
• http://www.valuablecontent.com
• http://www.ideamarketers.com
• http://www.articlesubmission.com
• http://www.goarticle.com
• http://www.article-emporium.com
• http://www.articlesource.com
• http://www.articleplanet.com
• http://www.findarticle.com
• http://www.magportal.com
• http://www.isnare.com

Much, much more! It’s easy to find content, you can always use Google to make a search on “[subject] articles” without the quotes in order to find related articles for your theme.

You can also download Jason Potash’s free software to find articles: Orwell, download it Here!

Once you have found these articles, digest them, take a paper and a pen and write down the points. Compose a new article with these points and the content belongs to you. You see, the most important thing is not searching for contents, but to write down anything that is in your mind. If you want to change it, change it later, just list down everything in your mind and your whole informational product will be very, very easy to write.

Sometimes, you can head off to the public domains for free public domain books or electronic texts. When a work is in the public domain, it means that it is free to use, and you can use it without afraid of making copyright infringements.

At a very basic level, public domain means:

Anything that is not protected under US copyright law. This includes all works published before 1923 and under certain conditions, works published up to 1978. A ‘work’ can be anything: a book, a play, music, photographs, movies, manuals, reports, posters, etc.

You can read a more detailed report from: http://www.copyright.cornell.edu/training/Hirtle_Public_Domain.htm

People still sell them, sometimes we see them in book stores. Though these public domain books are old, many people still want them! Not to mention some are even best-selling books in their time.

If you find, re-package and sell information that has fallen into the public domain you do not have to pay royalties or copyright fees on that work. You can use the work, resell over and over again and keep 100% of the profits without paying A Single Penny in royalties or copyright fees for its use.

You can definitely start using 100% FREE public domain information as your first ‘widget’ to be sold. First, we should state clearly that there is not another business in the world that is more profitable than the ‘information business’ i.e. selling books, manuals, reports, etc...

But the biggest problem for most individuals who want to enter this enormously profitable business is that they have to either create their own information product or secure the rights to sell someone else’s product. Yes, true. For certain individuals ‘creating’ their own information product is very hard to do...they can’t write or don’t like to write, they find it difficult or impossible to even think about writing an entire book!

If you love the idea of publishing information as a business model, but you don’t want to create your own book or manual...what do you do?
Sell Public Domain Information!

There are many places where you can get public domain works, here’s a few of them:

http://gutenberg.com
http://www.authorama.com
http://www.pdinfo.com
http://www.abebooks.com
http://www.logodesignweb.com/stockphoto
http://srufaculty.sru.edu/david.dailey/public/public_domain.htm

People rather sell an electronic/digital product than a physical product, the reason’s simple:

You can save all the costs and troubles for producing a physical product and shipping it all throughout the world. If you sell an e-book, people can just download it after their purchase.

They get it fast, you save all the problems, the world’s there for you to enjoy. Seems like a dream huh, but don’t worry cause it’s not. You can achieve that easily, all you need is take actions and give a little effort every day.

To Your Success,
Seth And Ryan
