STEP BY STEP ON HOW TO CREATE INFORMATION PRODUCT.

PRODUCTIf you are in the information business then you really do need to create your own products rather than promote other people’s. If you have your own products then you immediately build your credibility as being someone who knows a lot of information in that particular niche.

However perhaps you are not sure what product to create and you just need some step-by-step help on what to do. In this article I am going to show you some steps that you can take to help you with your product creation.

What product will you create?

Think about the times when you wanted to find out something related to your niche. Perhaps you wanted to find out how to do something and you did a search online and it was really difficult for you to find that information. Perhaps it took you a few days before you finally found some help. That is the type of product that you could create yourself. If it took you a long time to search for an answer there are likely to be other people also wasting time trying to find that help.

What will your format be?

Now think about what kind of format you want your product to be in. For digital products it can be a written format such as an e-book or audio or video. If you are creating a product that people need to actually see in order to understand the information then you obviously need to create a video.

However if that is not the case then you can create either an audio or an e-book. Audio product creation is far quicker and easier than writing an e-book and people listening to an audio gain a deeper level of understanding too.

Your Outline

Once you have decided the format your product will take, write down an outline of everything that you want to include in the product and everything that you know about that particular topic.

When you have an outline and structure of what you will include in your product you can begin creating it.

  • If it is an e-book then just start writing using your outline to break it down.
  • If it is an audio product then again use your outline and teach the information and record yourself doing so.
  • If you are creating a video series then record the parts that are necessary for people to actually see in order to understand. Make sure your camera is steady so that the picture quality is good.

If at any point you get stuck and you feel you don’t have enough knowledge about a sub topic then go away and learn it so that you can make your information complete.

Once you have actually created the content for your product you can go back and edit anything that needs to be corrected.

Now package your product together and upload it to your web page and write a sales letter that shows people what problem your product will solve.

Then you can market your product to your email list or using other marketing strategies online.

TOP 5 TIPS FOR HIRING FREELANCERS BY MARC ANDRE GAENSSLEN.

offreeFinding and hiring great freelancers can be tricky if you aren’t familiar with the process. While most are honest and hardworking, there are a few who will accept any work regardless of their skill level or specialties. These freelancers may deliver low quality work or may not deliver anything at all and if you enter into a contract which such a person it can be difficult to get your money back.

Below are some tips to keep in mind when hiring freelancers so you can find qualified, skilled workers who will deliver quality work on deadline.

Beware of Spammers – Spam is a huge problem on freelancing sites like Odesk and Freelancer. Some freelancers will use bots to apply to every job posted with no regard to the specifications or criteria needed. This means it’s vital to be clear on you expectations and demands and you should also include a keyword or phrase that interested parties should use in their bids. This way you can disregard bids without that phrase and more easily find legitimate bids.

Always Ask for Samples – A portfolio or samples should always be mandatory when looking for freelancers, whether you are looking privately or through a site. For design work or other similar things you should ask for checkable references and for writing you can ask to see any work published on reputable article directories or from former clients.

Test Samples – For certain projects past work might not be able to tell you whether or not the freelancer is right for your project. Cover letters can be stolen and reproduced so it’s a good idea to ask for a short test sample so you can accurately gauge their skill level. Some freelancers aren’t comfortable with this because certain disreputable buyers have abused this request and used the test work without issuing payment. A custom sample of 75 to 100 words should be more than enough to do this without the freelancer worrying about you stealing their work and you will keep less serious bidders away.

Pay Attention to Reviews – Employer reviews are an important way to gauge a freelancer’s skills and work ethic. It goes without saying that if a freelancer has numerous bad reviews you should stay away but you should also be wary of those with no reviews. If you’re willing to give a newbie a chance that’s great, but understand that you’re taking a gamble and make sure that you are absolutely clear about what you need. Keep in mind that if a freelancer has many positive reviews and one or two bad ones that the bad reviewer might not have been totally honest. Sometimes buyers will leave bad reviews in retaliation for a misunderstanding.

Put it in Writing – Once you’ve found a competent freelancer, agreed upon rate, delivery date and specifications you should put everything in writing via a contract. This is especially important when working outside of a freelancer site where there are no protections for either party.
