Newbie Blogging Moron . . .

29 Dec

I’m evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they’re letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I’ll let you know what I think once I’ve had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it’s still free.

Another creating products post is coming soon

17 Sep

Product Creation, part 3 is coming tomorrow!

Just wanted to let you know that tomorrow I will be posting the next piece in the Product Creation series. Also look for some slideshows and/or videos for all 3 modules soon. I want to give you the best chance possible to help you on the road to creating your own products.

So – don’t go anywhere! Look for that tomorrow and perhaps by this weekend, I’ll upload a free report on creating products for you. What do you think?

Product Creation 2: Get Others to Write for You

10 Sep

A few days ago we talked about one way to create products – writing a workbook or study guide from a public domain resource. Today we’re going to continue talking about Product Creation and our 2nd idea is to get others to write an eBook for you.

This is another very, very easy way to create a product. Let’s say you want to write a book about growing tomatoes but perhaps you don’t have the time or the specialized knowledge to do it yourself. How can you then create a usable, quality product?

The answer – you find others who DO have the time and knowledge to contribute to the book. Go to forums and other places where gardeners hang out, watch and learn and then ask folks who seem to be well educated in growing tomatoes to write a chapter for you. And you do that with several people. You can do this with any subject, even.

When they turn their chapters in to you, you write an intro chapter, ensure things are cleaned up and flow well and put it all together. You’ve now got a book you can market or give away.

Now, it doesn’t have to be fancy – but it certainly does need to be neat and clean looking and well organized. I suggest making a PDF eBook so that it’s compatible with both Mac and PC users. They’re also more helpful for those who have slow connections and/or older computers. Just Google for “free pdf” and you’ll find some good resources for creating PDF documents quickly and easily. And Adobe Reader is free for anyone who downloads your book.

Product Creation 1: Write a Workbook or Study Guide

7 Sep

For our first post about Product Creation, let’s talk about one of the easiest ways to create your own product – write a workbook or study guide using a public domain resource.

Now, to me this is the easiest because the material is already written for you, basically. All you really need to do is have an understanding of the material and just pull some questions from it or write some commentary on what a particular passage means.

For example, let’s say you really enjoy Napolean Hill’s Think and Grow Rich. You’ve read it, studied it and have a dog eared copy somewhere on your bookshelf. Did you know this great work is in the public domain? And because it is, you can snag stuff from it and create a workbook or guide for other readers.

It’s really that simple.

Next time in this series, we’ll talk about getting others to write a book for you. That’s pretty easy too. And it’s a lot of fun!

No Lesson Until Monday!

7 Sep

Oh man!

I just got Ed Dale’s blog post on the Thirty Day Challenge blog that as he’s hopping a plane for London today, the lesson won’t be up until Monday. Damn!

But that’s ok, right?

The other day I briefly wrote an Intro about product creation that shows 5 ways you can make products of your own. And today we’ll be discussing #1 on that list – Write a workbook or guide using a public domain resource. So look for that post later today.

New Direction for the Thirty Day Challenge

3 Sep

This week marks the beginning of a new direction for the Thirty Day Challenge. Ed Dale has graciously decided to continue on beyond August with additional weekly training. So, September brings product creation. This is an especially important step in the system.

I am excited about this because it’s something I’ve been interested in for quite some time. Now that I have the tools we learned during August, putting that together with product creation will skyrocket what I am able to do with my businesses. And I’m putting together a plan to take everything to the next level.

September isn’t just about the kids going back to school anymore.
