I’ve just completed a short ebook – only 2000 words, on Product Creation and I’m going to give this away in as many places as I can, mostly in the hope of it going a bit viral and spreading the word about this site as well as a few of the others that I run. It’s called Product Creation For The Terminally Terrified and it was written specifically to be a give-away, rather than a product to sell.
I’ve already got a few sales products but I didn’t want another one just yet. It’s not there to teach everything about Product Creation, more just a guideline and starting point for those who don’t yet know that they even need to create a product. There’s no glitzy cover and it really is just a bare-bones outline of what I see as the basic requirements.
I got the idea to create a short ebook from my studies of Alex Jeffreys’ Marketing With Alex 2.0 course and the topic seemed obvious to me. As Alex explains, it’s not that we don’t have enough books on a particular subject, it’s more that if there are a lot of books in a niche that means that there is a demand for information – and demands must be satisfied. Product Creation is an ‘evergreen’ niche – it’s going to be constantly in demand, so it’s a good one to run with. What I should look in to now is some saleable products within the niche and write articles for them, probably on my http://www.aymayzin.com review site, which will enable me to monetise my free ebook.
I haven’t put any affiliate links in the book as I am using it to gain trust in me. The only links that are in it go to sites that are under my control and there is no forced or even subtle selling towards any of them, although they do fit indirectly into the product creation theme.
You can download it here. Get it, read it and let me know what you think of it. Should I write a full course, explaining all the details and go more into outsourcing? You tell me. It would be great to hear from you. Feel free to copy it round your friends too. Pass it on.
Here’s a list of sites that I’ve added the ebook to. Also where the sites offered it I’ve also posted the links to my twitter, facebook, linkedin and google+ feeds each time, so there should be a few mentions of it going around.
Slideshare, Scribd, DocStoc
Also on a recommendation I’ve added it to my own Google Drive and made it public. Apparently Google likes that sort of thing and will make the document searchable. I’ve also put it on a few sharing sites although they weren’t ones I’d heard of before, but the idea is push the free document around and see what returns.
