10 Steps To Make Money With Information Products
The creation of an eBook isn’t as hard as you may think.
Many online marketers start out as affiliates, earning commissions selling products for other businesses. However, commission rates can vary considerably and many hard-working affiliates don’t always get the rewards they deserve. That’s why many look to make money with information products that they have created themselves so they can keep 100% of the profits.
So what are information products? Information products are created digitally and are downloaded to the buyer’s computer. Sales of information products are booming, and growing all the time due to the “always on” nature of our lives. This is where many people are seldom off-screen and consume content on every device they own – from smartphones to tablets to desktops.
And the beauty of the information product business model is that you create them once, and can sell them again and again.
How To Create Your Own Information Product
People buy information that solves a problem in their life.
You might be thinking that there’s no way you’ll be able to create your own information product. But you’re wrong. If you can write a blog post or a short article, you can create an information product like an ebook using the same system.
Think about it. Each chapter in a non-fiction ebook is equivalent to a long article. The skills you developed writing articles are the same as the skills you need for creating your first digital product.
But why bother to create your own information product in the first place?

Do people even buy ebooks any more?
Instead of asking if people still buy ebooks (which they do), your question should be, “Why would someone buy an e-book from me?“. Let’s take a look at how you can create an ebook that will sell.
