Below are some interesting ideas and information product categories that infopreneurs can consider, either as part of your market research or as another means of making money online via the corresponding affiliate programs.
Do you want to create your own information-based products? Or are you looking for an already existing product to promote? Either way, below you will find a number of examples from a variety of categories.
NICHE MARKET RESEARCH
Before you create your own information products, it is imperative that you understand the marketplace; the types of products do well, how they are pitched, landing page options, price points, formatting & delivery options, etc. Don’t underestimate the power of doing your homework. How will you otherwise know what is expected, and what works?
Take special note of how they are presented – what do you like about it? What don’t you like? What makes you want to consider buying it? What turns you off so much that you wouldn’t even consider it? Start to uncover the secrets of successful information products by applying critical thinking.
All of your opinions are valid perceptions and once you become familiar with the common formats and presentation, you can begin to design your own product to highlight the aspects you like and avoid the ones you don’t. If you understand your audience and have done your research, you’re that much closer to creating an enticing offering.
