The Product Creation Business Model

The product creation business model
There are lots of ways that marketers can create a steady income using the Internet. The majority of these methods take time to learn and master.
As an affiliate marketer we can promote other people’s products and receive a commission usually between 50% and 100% of the product cost. Now it took me a while to understand why marketers would give so much commission on their products. However if you think about it the higher the commission generally more affiliates will be driving traffic to the product. And the product owner can monetize this traffic on the back end.

Some benefits of being a product creator and owner rather than just an affiliate are –

  • It helps with your branding

  • Its a growing market

  • You can make more money

  • You are in control

  • Traffic is driven by affiliates

  • You are creating a list of buyers

  • No SEO, Google, or advertising worries

  • Opens up JV opportunities

Lets look at each of the benefits more closely.

Branding – When you have your own products, people will start to look for you by name, knowing the value you give. You start to become an authority in the industry. Often this can lead to customers buying every single product you ever create.

Growing Market – During hard times, and periods of recession, people will often look at ways to supplement their income. With the rapid growth and accessibility of the internet, lots of these will turn to the web looking for training and digital products.

Make More Money – Being an affiliate marketer alone, will never make you as much money as being a product creator and an affiliate marketer. Imagine the scenario of making a good living selling somebody else s product for a commission, only for the affiliate program to stop! Your income is cut off over night..

In Control – You can decide what direction your business can take, you do not rely on the skill or lack of it from others.

Traffic From Affiliates – When you have a good catalog of products that you have created, you should also have built up and army of affiliates eager to sell your high value, high converting products. This can mean sales still coming in from the efforts that you made years ago.

List Of Buyers – Every time somebody buys one of your products they should automatically be placed on your buyers list. This opens up more opportunities, as you can now sell them affiliate products, with the chance to make more money, win JV prizes, and all those hungry buyers will still be there to sell your next product too.

SEO, Google – With a list of affiliates, as well as a list of buyers, this business model means you should never have to worry about traditional methods the affiliates use to drive traffic. Such as worrying about the next Google update, or  advertising.

JV Opportunities – Once you have your own product created this can open up a whole new world of opportunities. You can leverage your products, for example you could ask another marketer to place your product on their thank you page and you can do the same to them.
You can break your product down, and use it for other purposes such as bonuses when you’re selling other people’s products to your growing list of buyers

A good product creation business model will have a low-priced initial offer.
And this product will offer immense value. Over delivering on this product will make your buyers feel like they have a bargain, and will be tempted to check out your higher priced products looking for the same value.
This is monetizing on the backend.

I know, in the past I have bought a product for seven dollars and have been mightily impressed, I have then gone on and bought a $2000 coaching programme from the same marketer, I was in the buying mode, I knew the quality of the work the marketer offered, plus when marketers offer a no nonsense, money back guarantee this minimised the risk.
And I must say it’s the best $2000 I have ever spent.

Before creating your first digital product, you need to perform detailed market research to find a niche that has hungry buyers, and also one that you are interested in.
You do not always have to have experience, as this is something that we can learn from others, and spending a few weeks researching will make you an expert compared to your buyers.
We can learn from old products we may have purchased, we can learn from purchased PLR products, from youtube, google, and we can approach experts in the industry.
However, never copy the work of others. We need to create unique, original products that your buyers will love. Your reputation is an asset, so do not smear it right from the offset.

When planning your digital product, I would recommend going for a residual income model, whereby you can offer content on a monthly basis, so you get paid month after month. Affiliates love this model to as they can promote your products once and get paid every month.

I would recommend anybody who is an affiliate marketer, or a wannabe. To look hard at the product creation business model. Can you name any of the top marketers in the business that do not have their own products?
There are not many, and next time you’re at a party, or an event rather than introducing yourself as ‘ hello my name is John Doe and I’m an affiliate marketer’  you can introduce yourself as ‘ John Doe – digital product creator ‘

[Video] Don’t Start A Project You Cannot Complete

Hi guys,

A couple of months ago I created a video about never giving up on your goals. This was mountain bike related, and it was making similarities to getting up and over those roadblocks that get in the way.

On a similar vein, I want to point out the importance of not committing to too much at once. It is better not to start a project, than to give up part way through.

This week, I was on a mountain bike ride with my friends, Chris and Tony.

Here are the 3 of us, nearly at the top of one of the the biggest climbs – The reason we stopped here becomes clear in the video below!

Well I have a confession to make – I gave up at this point and took a short cut home. Watch this video to understand the reasons why.

No excuses- I feel bad

[Video] My Embarrassing Mistake

Hello guys,

Something has been annoying me for a few months now, ever since Aweber updated their website.

I was struggling with what would seem a very simple exercise – Adding a link into my emails!

That is the main reason why I do email marketing, so people will click on my links, so it is pretty damn ebarrassing to have to admit! Ha ha

however, I have finally found out where I have been going wrong, and I have recorded a short video for you showing how you can avoid the same issue.

Here is the video.
(Ps After watching the video, check out below for more email marketing tips)

Email Marketing Roadmap Review

John Thornhill & Eamon Diamond have created yet another fantastic product called Email Marketing Roadmap. We all know the money is in the list…RIGHT! Well, John and Eamon have created a fantastic product showing you how to get more open rates, clickthrough rates and sales – and they’ve left it so simply too. Every detail has been taken care of in this product, the video training walks you through the entire process from head to toe on what is the best and quickest ways to get your email marketing campaigns started instantly.
There’s step by step video training proven to get results, John & Eamon have also attached a detailed PDF report, this report explains the importance of your email analytics which is often overlooked by most email marketers…and why you shouldn’t let it happen to you. There’s also an audio version of the PDF report where you can download and listen to it while reading. They’ve also provided a checklist where you can tick off the appropriate fields necessary when you have followed along to each individual video and then completed the task.

Everyone online knows that to make any considerable amount of money in your business, you need an email list, but it doesn’t stop there; you have to treat your list with respect and get to know them first before you go promoting product after product to them. This video course takes you by the hand and covers every detail needed to do just that.

I loved the way this product was so simple to follow along too, that’s why I wanted to get a blog post wrote up on it so as you wouldn’t miss out. It has really helped myself understand so much more about the things I was leaving out when I was sending out my email campaigns. I’m now seeing a considerable increase in profits by applying the principles taught to me in “Email Marketing Roadmap!”

I’m fully endorsing this product and stand behind it 100%. I highly recommend you check it out for yourself and grab it at this insanely low price of just $4.95 before John & Eamon change their minds and puts the price up.

Go check it out now for yourself…




[Video] Perception Is Everything

I am not sure about you, but I believe that many people

‘Judge a book by its cover’

I know I sure do. Lets take sales pages for example. If they are super spammy, or have poor spelling, or even look completely boring. I wonder if the product has the same traits.

Your sales page, or your blog, or your squeeze pages are the first point of contact for our customers.

We need to leave a great first impression.

Here are my simple thoughts on video.

Don’t Give Up [Video]

Hi guys,

A short video for you today that I recorded this week whilst out on a mountain bike ride, high up in the Cheshire Peak District, UK.

I love mountain biking and have just had some new front forks fitted. So I was keen to try them out.

It was hard work, but exhilarating, especially when you make it to the top of the trails, ready for the descent!

This short video explains how sometimes you feel as though you want to give up, however you may be just about to complete the journey.

I placed some images below the video too, showing my progress through the forest. Hope you like them.

Here is the video – The sound for the first 10 seconds is shocking!  (sorry) It was very windy up at the top.

Okay, so it isn’t always plain sailing, even on the descents!

On my way back down the trails, I had to negotiate steep hills, sharp bends, rocks and boulders. Even the odd steep hill back up again!

So even though you have done the majority of the hard work, you still need to keep one close eye on things while you enjoy the view, and steer your way through the obstacles. However it is much easier as you do not have to pedal as much!
