If you've been around web for any time at all - especially looking for information about how to get your own online business started - you've probably heard one thing metioned time and time again: Make and sell your own products.
It's an undeniable fact. Selling your own product is fastest, and sometimes easiest, way to make money online. And one of easiest types of products to sell is information.
Information is a hot commodity. People love to learn new things - or learn more about their favorite topics. By creating useful, helpful, or entertaining information on almost any topic - you can literally make a fortune. And yes you can start raking in money from minute your product is released for sale.
Now entire process doesn't happen overnight, and no it's not magic. There is a formula. Or "system" if you will. And there's hard work too.
Whether you want to create a tutorial, informative email course, special report, or full length book: You need to invest either time or money to get that product created. You can't make money from it until you're able to sell it, and in order to sell it - you have to create it.
And creation takes time. Even if you have money to pay someone else to write for you, they'll still need time to do it well. If you choose to write EBook yourself, you'll need time too. Even if you know topic inside and out, it takes time to "get it all down on paper". Then of course you have to organize it, format it, edit, figure out publishing and delivery options, etc.
Now a tried and true method of getting a business started fast is to invest in ready-made products. People do this every day with EBay and dropshipping. The basic concept is simple: You buy products at reduced, or "wholesale" rates, and resell them to customers at standard retail mark up rates. You keep difference in what product sells for, and what you paid for it.
Many people don't realize you can do same thing with EBooks. Buy ones that are already written and packaged nicely - at wholesale prices - then sell them to public. Now it's important to understand you can't do this with just any EBook you come across. It's illegal. You must have a license to sell someone else's EBook, and you must have connections to get them at "wholesale" prices.
