    Hey guys,
    i'd like to ask if there are some guys out here that create own products
    and sell them.

    My questions are:
    How difficult is it make a few sales per week (lets say a product for 50 bucks)?

    Are there any possibilities to skip the product creation, like let someone else create the product?
    Any known service?

    How difficult is it to get affiliates?

    If you are a product creator you can add me on skype: Secret1991

    YES there are some guys here that creates their products and sell them...

    How difficult?? It depends how aggressive are you on the marketing of your product at the launch of it.

    YES, you can outsource your product creation, I remember someone here shared his method how he was creating products from other PLR products outsourcing the PLR product to his contact in INDIA and he was recreating the product from the PLR one that he sent to him. HE WAS BANKING REALLY HARD LIKE THIS, he posted some screenshots proofs too.

    To get affiliates is the same as to make your own sales, if you are aggressive enough when doing marketing of your product at the launch of it you will get some affiliates.

    You can find even people that are in the same niche product as you that are ready to blast your product to their email list for a fee... Just search around... GOOGLE is your friend...

    Cheers

    I've been wondering same thing as OP. I make bots (automation for things like account creation, posting etc..) and have been wondering where to get affiliates. I know places like CB and WF dont allow these types of software since i've already tried promoting there. Actually I havent tried CB but I remember it saying something in the rules. I thought about JVZOO but not sure how active the affiliates are and how easy it is to get your products shown, that and you had to sign up to some email program to use it. Anyways my skype is - zonfar

    Although I haven't made a product myself, I know for a fact that it is very profitable, especially if you have a high quality product. Actually, this is something I intend to do in the future.

    Regarding the content, I believe it is best to write in a niche that you're passionate about as that's the only way to create a good quality product.

    Yeah I've made products. It's something I do once every few months.

    My advice if you're an unknown name and want to release products on larger forums is to release it for free, take them to a email submit page to capture their email, give them the free download after they submit it.

    Do this a few times until you end up with a list of downloaders emails of say 200 or 300 but you can do it with a lot less. Then create a larger product and email them telling them about this great new product and it's only $X or $XX whatever the price is.

    Doing it this way you'll instantly have 200 / 300 eyes on your product, they already trust your work as they have downloaded from you before and you'll get more sales.

    Once you get a name for yourself you can use Clickbank, JVzoo etc to upload your product and have affiliates market it for you.

    Good Luck!

    sorry but it's a silly question.

    Is there a demand? Do you have a high quality product?

    Can you bring both together?

    I've built and sold a few products over the years, but just started to get really heavy into it. It is definitely one of the most lucrative ways to earn money online if done correctly. When Clickbank was young, I remember re-hashing some ebook for winning at poker. I paid the $50 to get the product reviewed, got it listed, then forgot about it. I logged into my CB account a month later and there was over $1k in my account!
    That was during the eBook craze. Today with better technologies like stronger computers, and and better average consumer bandwidth, info products have gone more elaborate using multi-media. Developers will take their original content, like articles, ebooks or whatever, and convert the information into different mediums, adding it to the product. One product might have: An ebook, a video series, email series, and an audio file making it look like a complete course. It's easy to do this sort of thing, and yes, your presentation is everything. Do not let people tell you that shitty looking sites, and graphics will let you bank.

    Going on what Darren9682 said, yes there are your so-called guru's that appear to sell their products like there is no tomorrow, but do not let this discourage you. There is plenty of room for growth in this sector, believe me.
    My first real product is in pre-launch. I already have 25 affiliates sign up to promote it. I've managed to have 83 people opt-in to be stay informed of the launch. That does not sound like much but in the 25 that are ready to push my product, I recognize like 12 of them to be super affiliates. All this before the launch, and I'm a nobody. Fresh on the scene. Is it a tight knit group of so-called guru's? Of course it is, but use that to your advantage. Most of those guru's are good at nothing else besides selling their product by getting you hyped up in their motivational presentations. Buy their product, and apply their "teachings". Did they work for you? Do you think that if it didn't work like it was advertised, would that consumer buy from that vendor again? Highly unlikely. That is where I come in. I've been in IM since like 1999 in one way or another. I know what works. I will if I have to, but I would rather not sell to the noob. I would rather sell to people that are slightly past this level, and are already frustrated with the hype. Occasionally some of these guru's will have some info worth anything, but it's usually methods that I think they base on theory. That is cool if it gets my wheels turning.

    If your not a complete noob, you will most likely know your way a little around Wordpress. It's only the biggest CMS on the planet. For me, Wordpress is like an old friend that's never abandoned. She makes me money, and I feel warm. I only felt right getting serious with developing a product if it revolved around my gal, so that is what I did. I had a theory about how to get your audience to pay more attention to your sites advertising. I paid a developer from Odesk to code me a plugin that would do what I wanted it to. It was crude when finished, but it worked. I got much more ad interaction on my site. I tested it with my friends on their sites. We all got the same results. So I got the plugin fully developed and that was my product. The best thing about it is that I already have the next 3-5 years worth of new features already thought up. It all worked out perfect because it is a strong and functional base, that can be expanded by new features meaning new revenue avenues. Different models could be worked into it including making it subscription member base.

    My point is, don't let those puffed up "guru's" discourage you. There's tons of more valuable information available for free here on this forum than in all of their products combined. If anybody is thinking about networking on product development/marketing, let me know. Maybe a skype group or something. I have some knowledge on this subject, and I'm sure others do too. It would be great for us get together and share ideas, or maybe even JV.

    The purpose of this post wasn't so I could self-promote, but if there are any affiliate marketers reading this thread that want to check out my product, shoot me a PM.

    It depends what niche - you can read my current venture here, which is proving quite interesting. My background is retail and manufacture outside of IM, so yeah, there's a lot you can do with drop ship selling, private labelling, small production run labelling and so on... But it depends what area you're working in and what capital you have to invest. If you're going in with nothing, I'd stick to affiliate marketing myself to build up some funds.
