New InfoProduct Goal...

Postby deannatroupe » Mon Sep 15, 2008 1:11 pm

Here is my goal. I want to have my own infoproduct completed by December of 2009. The only thing I know for sure is that I want the topics to be about social networking, blogging, and podcasting. I'm not quite sure how to narrow it down or which niche I want to focus on. That's why I'm giving myself so much time so I can do the research and narrow down my focus. Thanks in advance for helping me reach this goal.

Hi Deanna,

Great goal. What kind of info product will it be. An ebook, or an audio book, or an audio program with ebook, an ecourse, etc.?

Maybe those topics you mentioned can all run together from niche to microniche.

-Social Networking -> Blogging -> Podcasting-

What do you want to help people do? What would be the purpose of the report, book or program?

Just firing off some questions to add to the discussion. Any one else have any suggestions?

I'd like for this to be a physical book, ebook, and an audio book. I plan to offer different price points for each medium.
The purpose of this product would be to help people start using these tools to promote their businesses.

Seeing so many teens are getting into Social Networking and parents are apprehensive to allow kids to be on these sites, maybe a book about how social networking platforms can be dangerous and how to prevent your teen from falling prey to predators.

That's a thought, except I don't want to scare people away from using social networking platforms. I want to encourage the use of them. I guess I would have to find a happy medium between warning and educating.

So you might find a wider audience with the parents of teenagers who have started social networking if you deliver the proper message. Start off discussing the social network, then discuss the dangers of it, then discuss the positives of it, and finally discuss how to protect yourself and your family while using social networks. I'd expect that a large segment of parents aren't very savvy about these things.

These are great ideas. I guess I need to do more research to market to that niche. I hadn't even thought about that. So where would I go to market such a book. The other thing I need to think about would be how I could tie that into the other stuff I do.

you do not have to scare them away, what you want to do is to offer a solution that both teens and parents could live with. Where parents have control to know that their teen is not conversing with someone twice their age, but yet the teen has control as well to go on and talk to other teens and have a little safe fun.

Deanna there are a ton of opportunities for even business people on social networking sites. There is a lot of money to be found marketing on such as MySpace and other sites, it is all about how you go about doing it.

My son makes well lets just say at 19 a VERY nice living and has produced his own product. I am sure he would be a good target to interview for some research.

One Completed Infoproduct!

Postby deannatroupe » Fri Apr 03, 2009 6:28 pm

I've just completed one infoproduct! I've updated the book that I wrote a while back on Affordable Advertising On The Internet. It's called The Cheapskate's Guide to Advertising On the Internet. You can get it from Amazon! I'm so excited. I got my proof today and it looks really good. I'm going to record a video later on so you guys can see it! Yaay me! It feels so good to have a goal completed!

I think offering different forms of the product is a great idea. I've been hoping to do the same with a product I'm working on as well.

Congrats on finishing up your info product! :)
