Your brain is packed full of little tidbits about your passion. Write them index cards. Once you have completely exhausted every possible topic for your index cards, begin sorting and organizing your cards. When you are done you will have outline for a product that others will pay you money for.
Create a website about your passion. Make it best website on net about your subject. Make it a fun and friendly place for people to visit. Make it so good that people who share your interest will stop by at least once a day. On my http://www.homemadebooklets.com website I've posted an article, "Internet Secrets Revealed". This article contains 51 tips that I believe can make any website successful. Print a copy of this article and use it as your guide.
Offer a few products for sale from your website. On my gardening site, http://www.freeplants.com I offer a wealth of gardening information free of charge. I sell my book, but products that sell best are products that teach people how to make money selling plants. Design your site in such a way that each page gently leads your visitors to your sales page.
My http://www.homemadebooklets.com is a great example of how this is done. This entire website is designed to sell one simple product. But it is done in such a way that visitors learn plenty about selling on internet as they are introduced to my sales message.
Many people just browse, learn what they can, and leave without spending any money. Others want to learn every detail they can about how I sell tens of thousands of dollars worth of my homemade products on internet so they buy my e-book, "How to Make Thousands of Dollars with Homemade Booklets". I offer plenty of free advice from message boards at both of my sites. That's what keeps people coming back day after day.
Make your product digital. Create a simple information product, a 25 page report is great for starters. My best selling product was a 25 page report that sold for $19.95. Then I added some content to report and raised price to $24.95 and it sold even better. Now I've added even more content, converted it to an E-book, and raised price to $39.99 and it really sells great now.
Creating an E-book that can be delivered electronically sounds really complicated, but it's not. I was really intimidated by idea of creating a digital product. When I finally looked into it, I couldn't believe how easy it was using Adobe Acrobat.
Set up an affiliate program so that other internet marketers can earn money for helping you sell your digital products. This is much easier than you think. As a matter of fact, it is as simple as can be.
I use ClickBank. They handle complete sales process for me, including processing credit cards. They even pay my affiliates for me. All I have to do is let other internet marketers know that I have an affiliate program, and that they can earn money simply by putting a link on their website. You can learn more about ClickBank at my website.
This is most incredible business in world. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, people can visit your website, order your digital product, take delivery immediately, and entire process is fully automatic. You never lift a finger, except to answer a few e-mails when people have questions.
You can have hundreds of other internet marketers sending you customers. They get paid for their efforts automatically, and you just keep selling more and more products. Business has never been this easy!
The secret to making it work? Pay a generous commission. I give my resellers 50%.
