Continuing where we left off in first part of our goal of differentiating how you deliver your information to get more sales at higher profits.
Here is last 5 alteratives to eBooks that will put more money in your pockets.
6. Audio Interviews
One of key disadvantages of eBooks, newsletter, special reports, etc... is that they are non-interactive. Many people learn better by hearing examples, discovering information in an interactive setting. Get someone to interview you about your topic and record it. You can record interview over phone, in person or by using a third-party conference service. Once again, you can offer your information via recorded interview for a premium over what you would charge in eBook format.
7. For-pay Newsletter
If you have experience, knowledge, contacts, or any other constant value you can add to a specific target market, then a for-pay newsletter can be an excellent source of income. Many established newsletter publishers - even those with just a few thousand subscribers, are converting to a beefier "for-pay" model. Even if they only convert 500 to subscribers at $47/year, that's $23,500 revenue PLUS ability to market products to that group AND collect renewals over years. One example of a top quality, for-pay newsletter is Jonathan Mizel's
8. Pay Members-Only Web Site
An alternative to a "for pay" newsletter is a "for pay" private website. Here you can provide various forms of content and services to your customers in exchange for a monthly, quarterly or yearly membership fee. What would you provide as content? Here are some examples:
Articles you write, results of research you conduct periodically, survey results, news updates from various sources, case studies or success stories, interviews, digital audio files, private newsletter, private discussion board or networking board, quality products at a discount or free, discounted services you provide through joint venture partnerships, etc... One of best membership sites I have come across on topic of online marketing is Terry Dean's Netbreakthrough's site found at:
