My Light Bulb Moment…
Okay since my last post you’ve probably been wondering what I’ve been up to – right?
Well don’t fear, I’m still here, I’ve not thrown in the towel or anything like that and I’m still aiming for Internet Marketing success. Here’s the thing though, one of the major problems most people face when beginning their own Internet Marketing journey is, where to start and what to do?
See, if you are just starting out, you’re probably scratching your head right now on what product to create that others may be interested in buying from you. I know, because I’ve been exactly the same, but you can actually waste a lot of time thinking, or should I say ‘over thinking’ this and then fail to take any action at all which doesn’t get you anywhere.
There’s a well know acronym that circulates a lot around the Internet Marketing community which is ‘KISS’ and it stands for Keep It Simple Stupid. Now I don’t know what stage you’re at with your own Internet Marketing journey, but if you’ve not come up with your own product idea yet, then please remember the KISS approach. Don’t try to over think your product idea, just keep it simple.
Now fortunately my first product idea was staring me right in the face and all I needed to do was recognise it. See, if you’ve read my ‘about me’ page then you’ll know that I currently make my living on eBay and I actually earn a full time living by only working part time hours which is really cool, because it gives me the opportunity to post great content to my blog and devote time to my Internet Marketing journey!
And this is when I had my light bulb moment – EUREKA!
What if I told others how I make my living from eBay? Surely this would be a really cool product to offer to people? I know there’s a huge demand for this information because people are always searching for things to sell on eBay so they can make an extra income to subsidies their low pay packets, or better still, do what I’m doing and make a full time living for working only part time hours.
Anyway, since my last post that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. I’ve been working on creating a full set of videos demonstrating what I do to make my eBay living. There was probably a number of variable formats to offer this information as a product, but the one I rolled with was to create a full set of videos then create a membership type website and add the videos into the membership area (a little like this site) and for the people that want to access the videos, they’ll have to pay the fee to access them. Simple right? Remember, KISS.
Now the said site is still a work in progress. I currently have all the membership content in place, but there’s still a way to go yet with setting up the affiliate page and of course the main sales page, so I’m not going to reveal the web address just yet because all you’ll see is a ‘Under Construction’ page anyway if you went there. Hopefully I’ll have it all polished off in the next couple of weeks or so and ready to go live. Once I do, I’ll let you know.
And that pretty much wraps things up for this post. Like I said, once the said site I’m working on goes live, I’ll post all the juicy info here on what I did.
Until next time…
